Feeling down? Struggling to remember important things? Feeling lonely, but also don't want to be around others? Maybe you just can't quite put your finger on it, but something feels off or life has just lost its luster? Do you ever feel stuck in the cycle of "work, go home, eat, sleep - repeat? These feelings often make things seem hopeless. And then, the anxiety or depression kicks in, or maybe that strong desire to drink comes along. And suddenly, life feels out of control and it seems there is no way out. Well, I know that right now, it may not seem like there is way out, but I am here to tell you, things can get better.

Accepting new clients. Sometimes we get stuck with the thoughts and doubts that churn in our head. You don’t have to be alone. With a therapist, you can start to unravel conflicting thoughts and find peace. I specialize in self esteem, codependency and attachment, trauma, anxiety, and teens that are struggling to find themselves. I believe that each person is unique and benefits from different therapeutic interventions. We will work together to create personalized goals in order to identify your strengths and limitations.

In therapy, we may use a variety evidence-based tools including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), mindfulness-based therapies, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, to help you create the life you want.
Seeking a therapist for yourself can be overwhelming. Anxiety, painful events from your past, and today’s pressures can hold you back from getting what you want. Therapy can help you gain control over low self-esteem, body image struggles, past trauma, disordered eating behaviors, and anxiety. Therapy can help you grow, connect, and thrive. Together, we can help you find the courage to heal from the past, turn down the negative voice in your mind, choose healthy coping skills to build resiliency, and trust yourself to create the life you love.

Working collaboratively with the client, I mainly utilize client centered therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy ( ACT ), and play therapy (for children) to reach treatment goals and ultimately live and thrive authentically in the world.
NOW accepting clients! I'm wildly passionate about serving mothers in the perinatal time period. Many women go through some very challenging and unique experiences during this time and I'm here to support and counsel them through this season. I believe wholeheartedly that women can grow THROUGH these experiences and come out thriving as strong AND happy mamas. I also love working with children aged 5-11. Besides working with children and focusing on maternal mental health, I have experience in and enjoy helping individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, ocd, life transitions, stress, and grief.

I draw from many therapeutic modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Mindfulness Based Sobriety.
We often go through life wearing a mask, pretending to be “ok." But, underneath it all, every human being has a need to feel and to heal. I often hear people say they feel like a failure for seeking therapy; I would argue it takes courage and vulnerability to seek support. I offer a safe and comfortable space for you to be honest and open about how you are feeling. I am always honored and grateful when my clients trust me to support them on their journey to wholeness.

I offer therapy from the lens of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.
Do you have trouble showing up as your authentic self? Do you feel unable to deal with daily life? Have you struggled to move through life transitions? This can be very painful and isolating. Unfortunately, when we are in pain we learn to hide our true selves or change ourselves to make others happy. When we live inauthentically it can lead to depression, anxiety, stress, sleep issues, and other mental health concerns.

My approach to therapy is based on Acceptance & Commitment Therapy ( ACT ). A core idea in ACT is that trying too hard to get rid of or control our emotions tends to backfire. Instead of trying to get rid of unwanted thoughts and feelings (e.g., anxiety & depression), I will help you learn to react differently to them so that you can keep your focus on living a meaningful and fulfilling life based on what’s important to you. We will work together to set meaningful goals to address your concerns–whether they relate to life transitions, depression, anxiety, body image, grief/loss, job or academic stress, or gender & sexuality.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Therapists

Is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy evidence-based?

Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of many approaches within the field of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT is an evidence-based treatment framework that has been shown to be effective in treating many mental health conditions including depression, anxiety disorders, PTSD, and OCD.

What is the difference between Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy?

Despite being part of the CBT family of therapies, ACT differs from other approaches within this field in several important ways: First, it emphasizes acceptance over change; second, it focuses on present moment experiences rather than past experiences or future events; third it focuses on what clients can do rather than what they cannot do; and fourth it emphasizes values rather than symptoms as targets for change.

What credentials will a certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist have?

A certified Acceptance and Commitment therapist in Overland Park will have completed specialized training in this approach at a university accredited by The Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies (ABCT).

How long does ACT typically take?

ACT is a relatively short-term therapy that focuses on helping you accept the things you can't change and commit to the things you can. It typically takes about eight weeks of weekly sessions with a therapist to complete the entire process. You may need to see your therapist weekly or biweekly, depending on the circumstances surrounding your situation.
