in st. louis, missouri
My clients are anxious high-achievers and ambitious perfectionists who want to create balance and find purpose in their lives. They are excited and motivated to do the work to get to where they want to be.
Whether you’re trying to find the right job for you, or you’re healing from a toxic relationship, you want to find confidence, clarity, and awareness. If you’re ready to step out of the past, start living in the present, and unapologetically embrace who you are, The Therapy Studio is here to help you.
My clients come see me for many different reasons, including depression, anxiety, trauma, communication issues, relationship issues, stress, imposter syndrome, feeling stuck, quarter-life crises, work-life balance, big life changes, life transitions, and career counseling.
When you're with me, you might feel like you're talking with a longtime friend. I am charismatic, funny, and down-to-earth.
I’ll work to help you feel comfortable enough to share your deepest fears and insecurities. You can trust that I always have your best interests at heart.
I offer hope and humor regularly in session to empower you to grow into your best self.
My current clients describe me as laidback and flexible but still credible and that I really know my stuff—a combination that is hard to find.
Our first session will be 90 minutes long. Each session afterwards will last 50 minutes. I recommend weekly sessions to start, so we can get to know each other and build the trust we need to keep a steady momentum as we work towards your goals. We’ll talk about how to make this work for your lifestyle.
I have all your credit card information ahead of time, so there’s no awkward swiping at the end of each session. My dog, Tank, is a certified therapy dog and attends each session.
If you're wanting couples therapy, or if you identify as male, my colleague Clayton Clark might be exactly who you're looking for.
When it comes to therapy, one size doesn’t fit all. Part of counseling at The Therapy Studio includes getting creative: We’ll create a custom, action-focused approach just for you as we get to know each other.
This allows me to combine the best of many different therapeutic methods, including acceptance and commitment therapy, Brainspotting, Gottman Method, attachment theory, and positive psychology to create meaning.
I combine strategies from both psychotherapy and self-awareness tools to work through your messy past and create change and action for your future.
I can promise that our sessions together will be as unique as you are.
So you’re feeling some nerves about meeting me for the first time. Guess what—that’s normal!
Once you get to the office, you’ll walk right into the waiting room where I will grab you at our set appointment time—no need to get there 10-15 minutes early, as you’ll complete all the forms I need from you online before your first visit.
We’ll spend the first few minutes of our session going over some introductory information about therapy, and we’ll use the rest of our time (about 90 minutes total) getting to know each other, reflecting on what brought you here, and setting goals for your treatment. You don’t need to do anything to prepare for your first visit after you complete the online paperwork—just show up.
Research has shown that therapist-client fit is the best indicator of change and growth in counseling. This means that I could be the smartest, coolest, most experienced, and recommended therapist in all the land, but if we don’t have that fit—that trust you need to have to share your most personal aspects of your life—we aren’t going to make much progress.
I will regularly check in on how therapy is going for you and encourage you to be open with me with your thoughts on our time together. It is so important to me for you to have a therapist you trust—even if it isn’t me—and am happy to offer you referrals to other therapists if we aren’t a good match.
