Life can be a wonderful experience though it is guaranteed to be filled with challenges. We all manage these challenges in different ways, from controlling our food/body, perfectionism, avoidance and over functioning. These methods often leave us exhausted and overwhelmed. If this resonates with you I am here to help. I specialize in the treatment of eating disorders, self esteem/body image issues and trauma. I work with my clients to identify their own, unique value system which then serves as a guide post through life. By aligning with our values, we create space to accept the difficulties of life and lead a life you desire.

I work with clients who are preparing for or in the midst of life change, and those who are healing from trauma, abuse and/or painful relationship patterns. Painful circumstances from the past do not have to define or limit you, they can be catalysts for growth and personal connection.

I use a collaborative approach to serve clients. I believe there is no one that knows you better than you know yourself and the work that we do in therapy is centered on identifying strengths that you already possess to serve you in overcoming challenges. I am currently accepting new clients, although I have very limited afternoon hours. Most of my availability at this time is during the late morning and early afternoon. Please let me know if you have questions and I will do my best to accommodate your needs.

I strive to hold that space where there is room for laughter, swearing, tears, and whatever else you may bring with you. My goal is to build an honest and genuine therapeutic relationship as we move through this process together.

Starting therapy can be a daunting task, often associated with mixed feelings. Most of us seek healthcare when we’re experiencing discomfort, ranging from discontent to crisis. You’ve made an important decision to prioritize your wellness. I am a licensed clinical social worker with nearly 20 years of experience working with individuals who are facing significant life changes, depression, anxiety or behaviors that might be impacting their overall well-being and that of their loved ones. I have a particular interest in helping those learning to cope with chronic illness, end-of-life and anticipatory grief, and bereavement issues.

Most clients seek out therapy because something or possibly many things aren't feeling good or working out well in their lives. They are looking for healing, for worth, for growth, for change. They need a safe and trusting person and an environment where they can feel heard, can process, feel, collaborate, make sense of, and make changes to improve their lives. They are looking for someone to listen and engage without judgement but also to challenge them when necessary. Therapy is about a collaborative relationship that allows a person to open their heart and their mind to healing.

After a career of more than thirty years I believe therapy can be an adventure enhancing physical, emotional and spiritual well being. In addition to teaching clients how to determine life goals, and take small steps to reach them, I encourage creative expression through journaling, dream interpretation, the study of Myers-Briggs personality types and the Enneagram. A favorite book of mine is, "Women Who Run With the Wolves," by Clarissa Estes'.

Being accepted for who we are is one of our most basic needs as humans. With many pieces adding up to create a whole being, it is hard to find someone who can understand without having to explain every time we see them. Repeated explaining and misunderstanding can lead to a feeling of shame and uncertainty that can damage the therapeutic relationship before it starts. I work from a baseline of understanding to help create a safe space for my clients to learn and grow. Therapy should be a laboratory where you can experiment with how you interact with others and present yourself. You are the expert on you. I'm just here to guide.

What type of Lawrence mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Lawrence?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
