I believe every person is created to be self confident and emotionally whole. I help each client leverage specific therapy approaches, tailored for their unique situation, in order to experience the transforming power of life change. I treat individuals, couples and families facing a variety of life issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship distress, parenting problems and life cycle changes. One of my passions is working with women that want to discover their true identity and build their self worth. I have lived with a chronic illness since childhood, which helps me relate to those suffering both physically and emotionally.

NOW Accepting NEW Clients! In person OR telehealth. Grief can imprison our soul, mind & body. Spiritually this can trigger the darkness we courageously battle alone. When our soul is trapped within this darkness it can be difficult to navigate towards the doorway of freedom. Loss can take many forms—the death of a loved one or cherished pet, an unexpected medical diagnosis, the dissolution of a relationship, a miscarriage, even the loss of a body part or job. No matter the source of your grief, it is valid & real. True strength and bravery will always intertwine with pain, fear & loss. I will provide you with compassion and support

Having a therapist that you are comfortable with is key. Therapy can be short-term and sometimes the issues you are facing require a journey that takes more time. What do you need help with, and what can I help you with, to find solutions that work for best for you? Partnering with a therapist can really make a difference. I am non-judgmental and accepting. Many people are struggling now with isolation or no support system. Currently, I can help clients through Teletherapy. However, some can be seen in their home. We can set goals together! Options: Weekly / Bi-weekly . I will be doing video sessions only at this time.

What type of Leawood 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 Leawood?
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.
