A Missouri LPC since 2007, I have an adult brain injury psychotherapy and counseling private practice at the Brain Injury Foundation of St. Louis.

In 2022, along with two fellow US-based brain injury psychotherapists,I had the privilege of being interviewed by Counseling Today’s Bethany Bray. Here is her published article:

I treat individuals, couples, families, and care-partners impacted by all varieties of acquired brain injury. I subspecialize in aphasia. I focus on harnessing the healthy tissue toward rewiring affected systems.

Metatheoretically, I am an existentialist. In practice, I employ person-centered customized treatment protocols, integrating motivational interviewing, behavior therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and psychoeducation.

I collaborate with physicians, speech and language pathologists, occupational and physical therapists, and other behavioral health and rehabilitation professionals.

My patients and clients are referred by hospitals, post-acute rehabilitation facilities, university clinics, and private parties. Here is a link to my practice:
