Hello there! Thank you so much for taking the time to explore Country Crossroads Counseling. I believe CCC is special place that is equipped with an awesome team of helping professionals and support staff.
I began my journey at CCC in February 2022 as a full-time practicum student. Upon graduating with my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Missouri, I transitioned to become a full-time counselor. I earned my Licensed Master of Social Work and am currently under supervision with Counselor, Geni Harms, as I work towards my full clinical licensure.
In my pursuit of helping others, I started my career as a student in various non-profit organizations and supported families and individuals each with specific needs. These roles along with my own personal life experiences have given me the unique ability to hold space for those experiencing grief, loss, and trauma as well as an understanding of family systems to best support units by drawing from a strengths-based perspective.
My purpose is to maintain a person-centered approach and aid in empowering clients. I utilize evidence-based therapeutic interventions with the guidance of my supervisor. I believe this starts with empathy as empathy is a great connector. I draw on concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy and solutions-focused therapy. I enjoy being able to meet with individuals and gather a thorough assessment of an individual’s biopsychosocial history in effort to guide a holistic approach.
The social work and counseling professions are my passion. My hope is to provide a safe space for someone experiencing grief, advocate for an individual who has not felt heard, or it can be as simple as extending a hand to show support and celebration of differences. Social work provides opportunities to make connections that support individuals, families, and communities in ways that are empowering and helpful. It is fulfilling when I can encourage, celebrate, serve, affirm, or validate others. I aim to be an advocate, empathizer, cheerleader, calming presence, impartial supporter, guider, uplifter, and social worker.
