Striving to be better each day…That’s all we can do….I truly believe that once we allow ourselves, just that seemingly small success, we can then see personal growth.

 

I have a background in teaching, having received my Bachelors in Science in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.  Right out of school I taught third grade and have had a passion for working with children as far back as I can recall. Fairly early on, my experience in the classroom showed me that so much of one’s home life and their learned ways of interaction, directly impacted their success in school.  At that point I decided that my help would be better served working with individuals (children and adults) and families to help teach the inter- and intra-personal skills needed to function better in life as a whole.  I got out of the classroom but continued to work with a variety of different youth programs for years. 

 

One of the positions that provided me tons of insight, was being the Healthy Lifestyles Director with the YMCA.  While there, I helped to develop health and fitness programming for children and adults and also launched the first branch youth dance program for that area.  While I had always valued the importance of overall health and wellness, this position offered the opportunity to work with over thousands of community members to aid in their efforts towards better health.  This work was in a different capacity than I was accustomed.  The opportunity truly taught me the importance of finding balance, physically and mentally, in order to lead a more productive and successful life.

 

I later decided to go back to school to obtain a graduate degree in counseling from the University of Missouri – St. Louis.  I received a Masters in Education in Professional Counseling along with becoming a Nationally Certified Counselor. I am currently provisionally licensed.

 

With my clients, I use a holistic approach focusing on developing a healthy mind, body and spirit, using primarily cognitive-behavioral therapeutic techniques.  This therapeutic approach is so closely aligned with my training in education that it is truly second nature and I believe that it is the best way to create new, healthy habits in our lives in order to become the best version of ourselves.  I have experience helping individuals and families struggling with anxiety, anger management, depression, grief and loss, low self –esteem, occupational stress, parenting, relationship problems, addiction recovery, and multi-cultural issues.

 

If you are ready for change..let’s do some work together!
