I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reporcessing), which is a research-based treatment for trauma processing and anxiety reduction.
These are difficult times where our entire sense of what’s “normal” has been thrown for a loop. Let me help you find your center in the face of current challenges. I believe the path can get cloudy for everyone at some point, and that therapy is a great tool for finding clarity and healing. Let me walk with you on your journey towards peacefulness and positive change.

I have training to work with children, adolescents, and adults with a wide range of concerns including stress, anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-esteem, and relationship problems.
Life gets tough sometimes and everyone needs a little help. Sometimes that help comes from friends or family, but other times that help can come from a professional. Reaching out to a counselor is tough but frequently can be the first step towards improvement in life. It is important to find a counselor with whom you feel comfortable enough to do the tough work and talk about the hard issues. I enjoy learning whether that is from formal training and classwork or from the people I work with. I consider therapy a collaborative experience where we learn from each other.

I know that the idea of counseling can be anxiety ridden if you have never been or if you have had a bad experience.
I believe that everyone has the potential to grow and learn. Friends and family are great support at times, but sometimes people can benefit from more. I often tell people therapy is a little bit like having a coach. It is someone to set goals with, someone to hold you accountable, someone to cheer you on and help you navigate the road map of life. It is my goal to help you get on the track that is best suited for you and your family, and come up with a plan to help you stay the course!

From the outside, it looks like you have it all together. At least, that is the hope, right? What they can't see is you frantically working to keep all of the plates twirling in the air and praying you don't let a single plate crash. You work hard, you are dedicated, and you are good at what you do. It is exhausting though and you aren't sure how much longer you can do this. You have had periods of self doubt, anxiety, shame, and even panic as you try to make it all work while you ignore that voice in your head saying you aren't enough.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

I work with adults and teens age 14+ on problems ranging from getting over a breakup to overcoming a lifetime of trauma. I use humor and compassion alongside technique and knowledge to help clients calm their thoughts, develop meaningful connections with others, and resolve even long-standing problems. I use concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), solution-focused therapy, and psychodynamic techniques to identify and challenge damaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, ultimately helping clients create a story of themselves that is authentic and empowering.

You are making one of the best investments you will ever make in yourself. Many people with anxiety attempt to control their thoughts, avoid, or perform behaviors to prevent unease or a negative outcome, only for worry to return. This feels intuitive, but actually prolongs distress long-term by reinforcing the ideas of intolerance and that there is something to fear. It's human nature to experience some discomfort. With Exposure Therapy, you can gradually minimize fears with support and thrive *in spite of* discomforts the brain, body, & life send your way. Let's replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty.

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 Lees Summit anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Lees Summit.
