"Making the decision to seek help is the the first step towards living a healthier, happier life. The second step is finding the right therapist. I believe that success in therapy is dependent on the strength of the relationship between the counselor and client. I view myself as an advocate, a catalyst for change, and an objective sounding board, rather than an expert who can listen to your problems for an hour and then magically know how to run your life better than you do. You are the expert on you! My job is to help you learn how to help yourself."

"I want to acknowledge how difficult it can be to seek help, especially when you're feeling overwhelmed by life events or feelings of anxiety, depression or grief. It takes courage to reach out and get the support you need to feel better and to move forward in your life. Through the collaborative process of therapy we will explore the difficulties you are experiencing, looking at the impact of events and experiences to gain insight into the way these experiences may have influenced your current attitudes, beliefs and feelings about yourself and others."

I do, however, have a wealth of experience and knowledge from my years of experience and ongoing education and trainings.

"Kansas City Mental Health Associates (KCMHA) offers trauma-informed treatment without the waitlist. If you or a loved one has experienced trauma, you understand how traumatic events can shatter a person's sense of safety, ability to trust others, self-esteem, and close relationships. Trauma survivors often feel like they'll never be the same, that life will never be good again, or that they don't deserve peace of mind. Additionally, many survivors suffer with painful reminders of trauma, which make it impossible to just "move on," as well-intentioned friends and family advise.
