If you have a dissociative disorder, you might feel like you’re going crazy. You might want to tell someone your story but you are afraid people won’t believe it, and that would be devastating. Dissociative disorders are commonly overlooked by mental health professionals, so it’s likely you’ve been disbelieved before or told you were imagining things. Or maybe, like some of my clients, your symptoms were incorrectly labeled as panic attacks, hallucinations, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, PTSD, or schizophrenia. I’m here to tell you that you may feel crazy, but you aren’t crazy. And I do believe you.

Some of my treatment focuses include trauma, anxiety, dissociative disorders, self-harm, and behavioral concerns in children.
I believe that each of us are not only wired for struggle, but, even more importantly, we are also wired to overcome those struggles. The active support, care, and skills available through a counseling relationship can be the most effective tools we use to battle against life's adversities. I value the courage and vulnerability it takes to enter into a counseling relationship. As someone who has experienced 'bad' counseling, I place high value on the individuality of each client and view them as the expert of their experience. I can help you explore new perspectives, offer new skills, and challenge you towards your goals.

I specifically specialize in problems related to emotion regulation, including generalized anxiety disorder, complex trauma or CPTSD, dissociation and dissociative disorders, personality disorders, and anger management.
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.

Your struggle is REAL. Maybe those closest to you don't understand it. Maybe they ask you, 'why can't you just let it go?' Maybe you even ask yourself this sometimes, and come up with no good answer. If you are frustrated and stuck, come see me ASAP! There are ways in which we can help you finally and COMPLETELY process through your pain, anger, and self-doubts. If you would like your 'past' to STOP being your 'present,' please give me a call.

Dissociative Disorders Therapists
Dissociative Disorders are conditions that involve the breakdown of memory. Dissociation is a mental process that produces a lack of connection in our thoughts, a separation of emotions, physical sensations, memories, actions or even our sense of identity. Most of us experience mild dissociation in our everyday lives. We call it daydreaming, getting lost in a movie or a book, or driving home on autopilot. These examples of dissociation are normal, and are a mild form of amnesia. Dissociation can become a disorder when it begins during a person's developmental years and becomes habitual and ingrained. If you're looking for help with dissociative disorders in Kansas City or for a Kansas City dissociative disorder therapist these professionals provide therapy for dissociative disorders. They include dissociative disorder therapists, dissociative disorder psychologists, dissociative disorder psychotherapists and dissociative disorder counselors. They can help with amnesia, memory problems, and loss of recall resulting from emotional trauma.
