I believe that everyone deserves to make and enjoy music. We all deserve meaningful music experiences all the way to the end of life, no matter what cognitive or physical limitations might be getting in the way. That's why we provide home-based and teletherapy music therapy services for older adults and their caregivers - to bring the benefits of music to older adults who may struggle to get out of the house for therapy services.

I am not currently accepting new clients., but there are other clinicians at my office that are at Metis Counseling. "I just want my child to be their normal self again". That is what I often hear at the beginning of therapy. It is very difficult to know how to handle changes like anger, acting out, sadness, or keeping to themselves. These problems affect the child and everyone else involved in their daily lives. I will tailor therapy to meet you and/or your child's specific needs, and work towards getting "back to normal" (or improving on what normal has been).

*Currently not accepting new clients at Lee's Summit location* Sometimes just having someone there to listen to the daily stresses of life in a non-judgmental and caring way can help you feel better. On other occasions, therapeutic interventions are needed to build the skills in order to cope with different problems. I have training working with adolescents, adults, and couples struggling with many different issues.

The emotional outcome is oftentimes determined on our awareness, our interpretation, and how we have chosen to respond to these experiences.

Life is messy but good therapy ends and should not last a lifetime. I want to hear your story, just as it is, no edits, no additions, no glossy finish. Lasting change requires work, it isn't always easy, but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us. No matter what your "it" is. Asking for help means believing you are more than your struggles. The first step is to show up and say, "I don't want to do this alone anymore" Change does happen and experience matters- both yours and mine.
