Welcome to Harmony Counseling! I would like to share a little bit about my background, training, and clinical philosophy so that you can determine if my services will be a good fit for you and your family.
After graduating from Saint Louis University in 2006 with a Masters degree in Human Development and School Counseling, I spent over 14 years working with children and families at a local non-profit agency. I practiced trauma-informed therapy utilizing a variety of evidence-based interventions with a special focus on strengthening the parent-child relationship. My experience, training, and certifications include:
Licensed Professional Counselor, Missouri, 2007000882 (since 2008)
Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) International Certified Therapist and Level 1 Trainer
Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) Missouri Rostered Clinician
Play and Sandtray Play Therapy interventions
Approved LPC licensure supervisor, Missouri
National Health Service Corps alumni
Field Instructor with the St. Louis Field Education Collaborative
Adjunct Faculty at the George Warren Brown School of School Work at Washington University, St. Louis
In addition, I have over 7 years of experience that includes supervising graduate students, implementing services through local and federal grant funding, providing clinical supervision, and managing a team of therapists.
I started Harmony Counseling in 2020 to continue my passion for working with children and families. I believe in holistic, collaborative, and culturally sensitive counseling services that place an emphasis on strengthening relationships and healing from difficult experiences.
I hope that I have the chance to get to know you!
