This is a time in which many are suffering from extreme anxiety having been given the order to 'Shelter in Place at Home.' As a mental health clinician I want to be available for those needing to use professional services and I am set up to take new clients for safe confidential online sessions or phone. It is especially difficult on those who have underlying emotional conditions that will become more symptomatic being in social isolation and having a sense of the unknown. I have been providing mental health therapy for thirty years and I am currently taking new clients including children and adolescents.

In both my personal practice of 24 years and 8 years of teaching mindfulness, I have witnessed how mindfulness can help people change lifelong patterns of anxiety and depression.
FYI, at this time, it will be at least 2 months before my next available appt. Do you struggle with managing difficult emotions and thoughts? Do you feel like you are surviving more than you are living? Are you looking for your path to balance and a deep sense of well-being? If so, I would be happy to help you to discover how mindfulness based therapy can help you find your balance and create a life worth living. With a mindfulness practice, you can train your brain to create the changes that you are looking for. You can also access your body and mind's inherent ability to heal and find balance.

I commonly treat issues related to anxiety, identity work (who am I and how do I live authentically), family conflict, loss of connection in relationships, trauma, depression, stress, grief, and shame.
Do you spend all of your energy focusing on other people's feelings or opinions that it feels impossible to consider your own feelings and needs? Is your goal to make sure everyone else is happy even if it means there's no time or space for you? Maybe the weight of people's expectations is heavy and exhausting, so exhausting it’s impacting your relationships with your partner, family, & yourself. It’s your turn. So many parts of you have been working hard for so long. Together, we can begin working towards experiencing yourself and your relationships as life-giving and authentic instead of draining. You deserve this.

Even now, anxiety and uncertainty don't have to run your life.
We are living in overwhelming times. The worry, stress, and disconnection can take a real toll on our bodies and our minds if not handled effectively. For years I have worked with people experiencing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, and chronic pain. The modalities I use are uniquely equipped to help soothe mind and body during this increasingly uncertain time. After treatment, my clients describe feeling calmer, more connected to self and others, and less hindered by life's stressors. We could all use more of that these days!

Mental health is part of your physical health. You cannot have one without the other. No one is exempt from facing mental health struggles at one time or another in their life. It is not uncommon during times of mental health struggles, either it be an isolated incident of panic, short-term and long-term anxiety, tragedy, situational depression, or circumstances that were out of your control that caused you to have a "new normal." Therapy will alleviate these stressors through a process of personal insight, change, and opening your eyes to a new way of seeing your life and how you react to it.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for a Kansas City anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Kansas City.
