"Owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing we will ever do."

Hi, I'm Cassie.

I am a therapist, a wife, a mom, a sister, a daughter, a friend, and so many other things to so many different people. While all of those roles hold special meaning to me, knowing who I am makes it a whole lot easier to show up for those other people in ways that feel authentically me. 

Big life changes can rock the foundation of who you are, I know, I've been there. After experiencing fertility struggles of my own, I am a new mom who is navigating big changes in life, all while working to hold on to who I am as an individual. I'd love to help you do the same. 

This isn't scripted therapy, I show up as my authentic self in all of my sessions to help you feel more comfortable doing the same. 

On a more professional level, I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology with minors in Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies and Child & Family Development from the University of Central Missouri in 2016 and my Master’s in School Counseling from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in 2018.

I started my career in schools in 2017 and have been working with teenage girls as a school counselor since 2019. In 2022, I began working with couples and women to help them identify and show up as their authentic selves.

say hi!

I want that!

Unwritten may bring to mind the Natasha Bedingfield song and while that is not a bad thing, it wasn’t the intention. The song serves as a powerful image for writing your own future. Unwritten is about looking at your whole life and telling the story of who you are on your own terms.

We each have a unique story to tell; we can let others guide that story and tell it for us, or we can take control of our lives and write our own story.

Unwritten does not simply apply to the future. We can explore and heal our pasts, we can relate to our experiences in different ways as we better understand their place in our lives.

We can be more intentional about our present, focusing on our values and who we truly are. Making decisions based on our own story, not someone else’s version of it. We have the power to shape our future into what we hope for it to be.

what is unwritten?

Unwritten is also about relationships. Any relationship in your life can ebb and flow between positive or negative over time.

Being an active participant in those relationships can be difficult. Truly knowing who you are and owning that can help you to show up as that person in your relationships.

I often hear couples sharing that they feel as though they are stuck in the mundane routines of life, often described as the “roommate phase” and are not certain how to get out.

Being your authentic self in the relationship and sharing that with your partner is an important step, but can be difficult. Let’s work together to identify who you are and how to best communicate that with each other.
