Forensic &
Clinical Services

I offer a comprehensive set of services for an array of clientele. Whether you are an attorney seeking a forensic expert, a prospective patient needing therapy, or a church or other organization needing a child protection policy, I can help.

  • Probation/parole

  • Personal (psychological) injuries

  • Workman’s compensation

  • Psychological disability

  • Independent Psychological Evaluations

  • Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID) appeals (Illinois)

  • Risk of future violence

  • Determination of whether a mental illness played a role in a legal matter

  • Attorney consultation

  • Other psychological/legal & court ordered evaluations

Clinical Services

For individuals seeking counseling/ therapy services, I offer the following in Missouri, Illinois, and PsyPact states:

  • Counseling/ Therapy

  • Diagnostic Assessments

  • Psychological Testing

My counseling approach avoids superficial, symptom-management based approaches, instead focusing on the deeply entrenched roots of psychological problems rather than the outward manifestations of them.

I am a certified treatment provider for personality disorders, and specialize in complex and confusing cases, including suspected feigning/malingering, and can assist in establishing or clarifying diagnoses. I am proud to offer counseling, assessment, and consultations to veterans, first responders, front-line workers, and other service providers.

For Professionals


For mental health and helping professionals, I offer diverse options of support, including the following services:


  • Clinical Consultations

  • Professional Supervision


I am available for one-time consultations and ongoing work, and offer both in-person and telehealth options.

Interested in scheduling an appointment?



In a time of growing uncertainty, churches and other organizations often need to develop policies and practices that maximize child, member, staff and public safety.

I bring expertise from psychological and forensic training, extensive work with criminals and the legal system, education and teaching, as well as organizational dynamics and functions.

Using these skills, I advise leadership teams and/or assist in creating or revising policies and practices that will install safeguards against predators and maximize accountability and safety for your staff.

I conduct presentations, workshops and seminars to mental health, legal and other professional groups on a range of topics. Contact me for availability and rates.

Benefits of Paying Privately:

I presently do not take insurance in order to protect the privacy of my patients and provide the most flexibility to them. Most insurance companies require that a diagnosis be given, put limits on the number of times a patient can be seen, and have access to patient medical records. If your insurance allows out-of-network benefits, we can work together to help you use them.


Instead of accepting insurance, I work diligently with each person to fully understand their individual situation and the question(s) they have. I make every effort to establish an affordable rate for services so they can achieve their goals. Benefits of private pay include:

  • You get to choose the therapist best suited to your needs rather than the insurance company telling you who to see.

  • You have maximum flexibility in the type of therapy you receive, how long you attend, and who to include or allow to see your information.

  • You will have complete confidentiality. Your records will not be shared with anyone without your permission.

  • You do not have to be concerned your health records might create problems for you or your family in the future (e.g. life/health insurance premiums, jobs, etc.).

  • You will be able to stay with your therapist even if your insurance plan coverage changes.
