As a culturally competent clinician, I have taken curricula specifically geared towards serving marginalized communities, such as: counseling African American clients, integrating poverty and social econominc status in counseling, and integrating religion and spirituality in counseling.
Having undergone training at one of only two CACREP accredited programs in the St. Louis Metropolitan area,
I am committed to theoretical orientations that have proved both valid and reliable.
As a relational-cultural therapist, I find that the therapeutic alliance, or relationship, is paramount; for it is the vehicle by which positive change occurs.
Towards that end, I work tirelessly to build, maintain, and protect the relationship between client and clinician.
The Institute of Intrapersonal Development currently accepts Aetna, United Healthcare, Cigna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Magellan Health, MO Medicaid, HealthLink and Home State Health Plans; as well as Venmo and PayPal.
