Meet Norinee

I work with a variety of populations because I believe in helping my clients navigate through the fear and unknown circumstances that can present themselves at any time. I believe in addressing those struggles through honesty, active listening, and understanding. I will walk through those hard times with my clients and offer a healing approach rooted in compassion and empathy. My focus is on creating trust and support. I especially advocate for those who feel all others have abandoned them. 

My Approach

During my sessions, I ensure validation, compassion, and support. I provide individual and group counseling for various populations such as domestic violence and sexual assault. I work with clients that are in need of crisis intervention with a trauma focus. I also meet with teens and young adults where they are so they can develop the tools to navigate the ups and downs of life.

With all the populations that I have served, an understanding that breaking the silence and stigma of mental health is key. I am here to help all my clients get a voice at the table of stability and peace.


I received my Master's Degree in Counseling from Lindenwood University in 2013 and went on to obtain my License of Professional Counselors in 2014.
