I am so glad you are here.


My background is in practicing mindfulness and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  I am integrating Somatic Experiencing (SE) in my practice.  SE is a body-based therapy approach for treating trauma.


I am Certified in Eye Movement Desensitization (EMDR) and have found EMDR can shift negative core beliefs in transformative ways.  I am a EMDRIA Consultant and provide EMDR Consultation to EMDRIA EMDR therapists seeking foundational consultation hours or certification hours.  

 I am also a Certified Perinatal trauma Specialist. I have specific training in Perinatal Mental Health and prengnacy and infant loss.  I receive ongoing perinatal training and consultation in my practice.

  NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM) treats CPTSD and provides a safe framework for addressing attachment, relationships, and developmental trauma. I am a NARM therapist. 

I am a Kansas City native.  I am LGBTQ affirming.  I believe black and brown lives matter.   I love traveling, learning, gardening, design, art history, and acupressure.
