"Asking for help can be difficult. We often think "I should be able to handle my problems myself". However, everyone needs support at some point in their lives. A major crisis, a life transition, loss, job stress, relationship problems, emotional needs, our past interfering with our present, or everyday stressors become too much to deal with alone. We forget our strengths and become isolated, depressed, angry, or make poor choices."

"Maybe you feel stuck in your life, confused about your feelings and thoughts, or you’re not living your life the way you’d want to. Maybe you’ve noticed that there are patterns in your relationships or at work that are interfering with your goals and that seem to repeat themselves. Maybe there are cultural expectations that seem to hold you back or interfere with your hopes and life plans. I can help you explore your feelings, thoughts and behaviors in order to better understand them, for symptom relief, to be more forgiving with yourself, heal and promote personal growth, and move forward. Sometimes it’s painful to look at one’s past and we’d rather avoid it. Sometimes it makes a lot of sense, though, to explore exactly these feelings in order to gain insight into how our past experiences influence the present, and in order to re-evaluate behaviors that might have been adaptive and helpful at one point, but are now interfering with your life and goals. Together we will be able to discover that you have choices and you will become able to more actively engage life, and use your own strengths to be most true to yourself. I’m supporting you in the making of a more fulfilling life."

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists in Kansas City view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family. Therapists with the MFT credential are usually trained in Family Systems therapy.
