The Purpose of Psychotherapy is

To Heal & Achieve

Your Best Self


About Me

I earned a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Saint Louis University. I have been working full-time since 2009 at the St. Louis VA Medical Center in the PTSD Clinic with a specialty in assessment and treatment of veterans with PTSD and Substance use.


I began private practice in 2018 for continued personal and professional growth and to extend my specialty training to the broader community. 

I have received comprehensive training in several evidence-based treatments including Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. 

In addition to therapy services, I also have enjoyed serving as a guest instructor for Washington University. I provide continuing education workshops as well as teach in the Post Master's Certificate Program in the area of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
