I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) by the State of Missouri, treating adult clients and couples in my private practice in Kirkwood, MO, which is near St. Louis. My specialties include working with distressed couples and the treatment of anxiety, including post-traumatic stress (PTSD), phobias, panic, and obsessive-compulsive disorders. I also provide consultation and training to other mental health professionals on the implementation of evidence based treatments for anxiety, depression, mood disorders, and couples distress.

I have worked in the mental health field since 2004. During this time, I have provided family therapy and clinical services to children in the foster care system, and administered substance abuse treatment services, group therapy for numerous concerns, trauma treatment, and individual adult counseling. However, most of my work has focused on couples therapy and the treatment of anxiety.

My prior employers include: the State of Missouri, non-profit mental health agencies, and the St. Louis Veterans Affairs Medical Center. During my time with the St. Louis VA, I was among the first counselors in the VA to be intensively trained in Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy (IBCT) by the co-founder of this approach, Andrew Christensen, Ph.D.

IBCT is an evidence-based couples therapy that has been shown to have significant benefits for couples in distress. Following this, and subsequent evaluation of my skills as a couples therapist, I was asked to become a part of the national training/consultation team in order to assist Dr. Christensen in providing quality couples therapy consultation and training to other VA counselors from across the country.

I regularly travel and train other therapists in evidence-based treatments. I am currently a faculty member at the Brown School of Social Work at Washington University, where I train graduate students.
