About Me


Thank you for visiting my site. 

I am excited to have the opportunity to share a little about myself. I hope this will be the first step toward the chance to meet with you and your family soon. 

While working to obtain my license in clinical social work, I worked with children and families as a foster care case manager with a St. Louis area organization.  I gained a tremendous amount of insight, respect, and empathy for the children and families I worked with who often had a deep traumatic history. 

After obtaining my clinical license, I dedicated nine years of my work to helping treat and prevent child abuse and neglect by providing individual and family therapy at a successful St. Louis area non-profit organization.  I have also worked with children, teens, and young adults who have been exposed to various types of trauma, experience anxiety, depression, ADHD, challenging and/or disruptive behaviors, difficulty managing anger, and more.

My experience has also included two and a half years supervising licensed clinicians and licensed Masters level social workers and many more supervising graduate students pursuing a Masters in Social Work. 

I started Butterfly Effect Counseling & Consulting LLC in June 2018 to continue helping as many individuals and families as possible by providing compassionate, quality, confidential, and unique therapy services.

I believe that even during the darkest times, with the right support and skills, we can identify and make the smallest change (like the flutter of a butterfly's wings) and create a big difference. 

You deserve to live in peace. I am here to help you (re)discover yours.   

"Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness, yet become something beautiful."
