I enjoy working with people to provide services where they feel they can be their genuine self. I love working with people who have complex issues that we can work together to take one step at a time. Mental health is an ongoing process that involves work and self discovery. I work in a variety of areas involving veterans, military, divorce, parenting, sexual health, sexual orientation, and gender issues.

Respect, trust, and collaboration to find solutions that really work. I believe the best treatment is a collaborative effort between you and your therapist. Sometimes people develop patterns of relating to others that are not conducive to experiencing happiness in their day to day life. As I get information about your specific struggles, we'll develop a plan together to address changes in behaviors to successfully negotiate the changes you want to make.

Do you feel unsure of who you are now? Perhaps you are going through a transition in your life and trying to understand how to get along. Maybe you feel like you aren’t yourself because of intense, persistent feelings of some kind. Maybe your past is dragging you down. Maybe your relationships at home, work, or in your community are not as satisfying as you wish they could be. You’re starting to think, you need an outside perspective; It’s hard to sort through this alone. These thoughts have got you asking, “Will psychotherapy help? Can it really change things? Is it worth it?”

Our clients often identify as LGBTQIAs2+ / Queer, Non-monogamous, sex positive or sex neutral, neurodivergence, and or disabled and living within Missouri or Kansas. However, identifying in these communities is not a requirement for services through AAC. Clients often start therapy to work on goals to learn more about identities, setting boundaries with others in their lives, opening up their relationship, learning more about themselves or others gender or sexual expression. Through individual, relationship, or family counseling we work to increase healthy communication based on our values, instead of assumed social norms.
