Meet Hope

I am a Gen-Xer, born in 1968, to a hippie and a cop. I am the oldest child, of an oldest child and a youngest child. I grew up in a small, rural, college town that is very near Scott Air Force Base.  My hometown evolved as I grew up into a bedroom community for the City of St. Louis.  I recognize now that this afforded me some unique experiences and uncommon exposure to people from different cultures, racial and ethnic backgrounds, and a diverse and often transient community.  

My professional path has been anything but linear. I have worked in retail, waited tables, worked for an investment broker, in a law firm, I have a BSW from SIUE, and I have worked as a case manager for Head Start and in foster care.  Approximately 5 years ago I changed direction.  

The struggle is real!  I see you and the challenges with which you are faced.  Minority stress, anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationship struggles.  None of us make it through this existence unscathed.  You are not broken. I am here to create a safe space for you to be and for you to explore your potential.  Change is inevitable and guiding the change that happens within yourself can be scary, but you are not alone.  I see you and am here to walk with you towards your goals.  Self-awareness and self-discovery are, in my opinion, key to growing into the best most authentic version of yourself.

Meet Ashley
I’m here for the people who feel inadequate or overwhelmed with who they’re supposed to be.
You wake in the morning feeling burnt-out, over-extended, and dreading the day. Maybe your partner is unappreciative or your kids, as much as you love them, are making you question your sanity. You don’t remember who you used to be and you’re not sure where you’re going. You have a family,  you’re trying to start a family, or you’ve spent months and years questioning why everyone else is able to have the “happily ever after” but you.
It is possible to build a life where you feel energized, secure, and fulfilled. By focusing on making life work for you, we can iron out whatever parts of yourself feel “messy.” You can define who you are with confidence rather than falling short of life’s expectations. 
When you come to see me, I am ready to show up and tackle the raw parts of yourself you’re tired of feeling bad about. I know you’re busy; feel free to self-schedule below or call for a consultation.

Sometimes the hustle and bustle of life can get in the way of making time for yourself. Sometimes you can feel so overwhelmed by your emotions that you freeze up, cry, or lash out at those around you. Sometimes the thing we need most in life is to be heard and understood. My goal as your therapist is to provide a safe, judgment-free space where your well-being is my top priority.
I am passionate about helping you explore your personal identity in pursuit of compassionate self-acceptance. Learning how different parts of yourself influence who you are is a challenging process, but the rewards are worth it. I want to help you learn how to navigate life with the self-love, clarity, and serenity that you deserve.
On top of helping you better understand who you are, I’m also interested in providing a space for wounds new and old to heal. My office is a place for you to talk about and work through challenging life experiences as well as complex traumas. By talking through these moments and authentically feeling your emotions in a way that best suits you, healing can be achieved.
I have experience working with depression and anxiety as well as addictions, eating disorders, and complex trauma. Through the use of a Person-Centered approach, you and I will work together to create goals that suits your wants and needs. When you feel ready to embrace yourself for who you are and love what you find, reach out! I would love to talk to you.

Showing up as your authentic self in the world can be scary. Will I be accepted? Why am I the way that I am? What are these feelings I’m experiencing, and can I trust them? I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore and process all of these questions and more. 

As a graduate intern counselor, I believe that you are the expert on the story you’re writing. I am simply here to come alongside you in your journey to grow and heal – to support you, to collaborate with you, sometimes to laugh or cuss or cry with you (sometimes all at the same time!). I take a person-centered approach to tailor or work to your specific needs.  

We might be a good fit if you’re feeling stuck or as if you’re going through the motions, feeling anxious or depressed about everyday life, identify as LGBTQ+ and want support in your identity or relationships, or if you’re ready to start healing from past trauma.

Meet Katelyn

Therapy can be really intimidating. A lot of us are afraid to show the raw, authentic versions of ourselves to people close in our lives, let alone a complete stranger. As a past skeptic of therapy, I am completely attuned to this feeling and aim to provide a warm, validating space for all to share personal perspectives. I like to approach therapy with a bit of humor – I feel like a little laughter and a smile can go a long way!

I focus mainly on the functioning of couples and families, including anxiety/depression, stress, intimacy issues, LGBTQIA+ experiences, multigenerational trauma, family dynamics, and much more. I’ve worked with couples encountering stress during the pandemic, LGBTQIA+ families, and aging adults with memory loss.

No one knows your pain and experiences better than you do. I like to provide a therapeutic perspective incorporating an individual, couple, and/or family’s strengths to find what works for them to increase resiliency in any situation. Book with me today to strengthen bonds and learn how to love from the inside out!
