Counseling Approach

"Be heard, walk in the light, seek God."

Counseling Services

Individual Counseling

Individual Counseling

We all experience hardship in life. Whether it is grief, anxiety or relationship difficulties, I cannot think of a greater privilege than coming alongside people who are struggling. I enjoy helping equip people to process the challenges or crisis they currently face.

Couples / Premarital

Couples / Premarital

I love building relationships with people and have a passion for helping them build a stronger marriage. I work with marriages at any stage from pre-marital to couples in high distress. My passion is helping strengthen marriages by working through patterns of conflict by recognizing their triggers and coping strategies.

Family Counseling

Family Counseling

As families change over time, patterns of relationships are created to cope with stress, fear and dissonance. Often these coping strategies cover up the real issue which inevitably creates more distance. I see families as the foundation of our society and it is my passion to help empower and equip them with the tools and abilities to create a new path instead of retreading the existing one.

Therapy Groups

Therapy Groups

From time to time, Haven of Hope offers group. Typically the groups are 6-8 people and run from 8-12 sessions. These groups are offered to help people begin to process a specific trauma or experience in their life with people who have had a similar experience in their life. The most recent group was focused on helping people work through trauma they have experienced in a relationship in their life.

Your First Visit

The office is currently located within West Hills Community Church which is located on S. Outer 40, just west of Missouri Baptist University.   The office entrance is around the back of the church.

I encourage you to either fill our the electronic form or print and fill out the documents linked below in advance to maximize your time in your first meeting. If you choose to not fill them out prior to your first appointment, please arrive 15 minutes early to complete these forms.

There are two ways for you to register for counseling. Because my goal is to begin working with you as soon as possible, I ask that you have the registration portion done before your first counseling session.  The electronic form will submit directly to me.  If you would rather print out the form and fill it out by hand, please be sure to bring the paperwork with you to the first session.

I do my best to ensure that everyone can get the help they need, regardless of financial situation.

The base rate for each session is $80 per session for individuals and $95 per session for couples.  Depending on need, it is possible for a lower rate to make counseling more affordable.  The sliding scale fee that is set is ultimately determined by your counselor, and you may be asked to provide a pay stub or W-2 form prior to your fee being set.

Payment is due at the beginning of each session and can be made in the form of cash, check, or credit card.

Currently, I do not take insurance.  However, I will provide you with a statement which you can submit to your insurance company in order for your insurance company to reimburse you directly.
