In my experience, a person who seeks therapy wants solutions that work. The fact that you are considering therapy is proof that you have more strength, and solutions, than you may be aware of today. Therapy is not about eliminating the inevitable problems in life but, rather, learning how to cope effectively and grow when they occur. Therapy is essentially a college course where you're the only subject. An effective therapeutic alliance can help people build the life that they want and deserve. My style is direct and active. I rely on honesty to guide our work together.

I believe change is constant and inevitable – how we adapt, cope, and manage these changes has a profound impact on our mental health as well as our relationships. Sometimes people need help changing their own thoughts and behaviors and sometimes people need help coping with circumstance outside their control. Positive change can be a difficult process that takes intention, purpose, and support. One of the most important benefits of therapy is that its effects are long-lasting. You’re not only working through current concerns, but you’re also learning and practicing new tools to help you deal with future concerns.

Many people walk around thinking "what's wrong with me?" and unknowingly put up barriers to deep, genuine, and lasting connection with themselves and others. The truth is that your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors make sense given your unique life experiences. Together, we will work to understand why you do what you do, and how to "do you" in a way that works to foster authenticity in relationship to yourself and others.

I help people understand the cultural context of thinking, and how our thinking, feelings and behavior affect each other. We connect that to brain functioning and to how the language and logic we were taught and practice can either grow or distress our brain. We can then experience peace of mind by expressing full efforts in what we do without being wracked by the pain of worry about ratings and achievements.

ADHD Therapists
Some children and adults with ADHD find it difficult to concentrate on tasks at school or work and may daydream frequently. Children with ADHD may become disruptive, defiant, or have trouble getting along with parents, peers, or teachers. Children who struggle with hyperactivity and impulsivity, in particular, often have behavioral challenges that can be difficult for adults to manage. Adults, on the other hand, may be more likely to report feeling restless or fidgety; if they struggle with impulsivity, they may make rash decisions that adversely affect their life. For both children and adults, executive functioning (planning, emotional regulation, and decision-making) is often affected as well. Many children and adults display either hyperactive or inattentive symptoms of ADHD, but it’s also possible for both sets of symptoms to exist together, in what is typically called combined type ADHD.

If you're looking for a Leawood ADHD therapist, these professionals provide ADHD therapy and counseling in Leawood.
