What does it mean to feel safety and connection? As individuals we strive to have our social, emotional, and physical needs met. We strive to advocate for equity with ourselves, friends, families, and societal systems. The journey towards safety and connection can be overwhelming, tiresome, and different for each person. Have you ever pondered questions like… where do I start? When was a time I felt safety and connection? Do I feel whole? If you have asked yourself or other’s the above question, you might be ready to start to find those answers for yourself.

Happiness is possible for each of us. It can seem out of reach, but together we can uncover your goodness and joy. You will feel less worried. You will feel more like you belong here in this world, and in your life. "Mindfulness" sounds complicated, but it simply means being here, at this moment. Feel your toes, notice the colors, breath in--good. That's it. This is something you already know how to do. We will build a practice of gratitude and happiness from this spark.

Coming to therapy can be scary! Do you worry that your therapist won’t “get it” or will tell you how to live your life? I understand that it can be hard to ask for help, and that it takes a brave person to decide to make changes in their life. I believe therapy should be a time where you feel comfortable and safe to be your true self! I am a strengths-focused therapist who won’t judge you, tell you what to do, or give you advice you didn’t ask for. You are the expert in your life, and your problems aren't too much- my job is to help you make your life look more like the life you imagine for yourself.

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.

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.

At times we all struggle with feeling overwhelmed, down, or confused. Like physical health, our mental health is an important part of our over all well-being. When we are out of balance everything feels harder. I am a firm believer in the dignity and worth of all individuals. I also believe that the understanding of oppression is an important part of therapy and recovery is a social justice issue. I'm a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor. I have been in the field for over 15 years.

Life can be challenging, whether planned or unexpected. Trauma and loss can sometimes be overwhelming as we learn to navigate those life stressors. Careers and relationships can require attention and children are learning their way in this world. In working with an individual, couple or family, I offer an approach that values your experiences and strengths while supporting you to develop new skills and empower change. Making that first call demonstrates that you are motivated to make a change and that is an act of courage.

Most of us come to therapy because we are struggling and wish to find a way through. We are seeking ease, a better life, a better version of ourselves, or to better know ourselves. In psychotherapy, we can discover innate tools for healing and practice new ways of being to uncover our potential. Finding Ease Therapy creates a space for clients to be seen and heard. Clients are guided to deepen their awareness through individualized techniques. They release behavioral, emotional, and cognitive disturbance to make space for their dreams. This approach, coupled with skill building for when times get tough leads to ease.

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.
