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.

I believe that therapy can be fun, focused, serious, or emotional, depending on your needs and emotional state in the moment.

Hi, I'm Michael Valverde, LCSW! I specialize in depression, anxiety, and trauma. I've transitioned to therapy over the last two years after 6.5 years of crisis intervention. I recognize that the human experience is a journey marked by struggle, internal battles, external challenges, and existential dilemmas. When confronted with challenges, we are often pushed beyond our comfort zones, forced to tap into hidden reserves of courage and determination. It is in these moments of struggle that we discover our true capabilities and potential.

Do you feel stuck? Unable to make decisions due to feeling overwhelmed? I get it. I too have felt this way. I know that sinking feeling of learning you have a chronic illness and will daily feel the pain, fatigue, and fear of "what's next?" Even worse, feeling that you have lost who you are and who you thought you always would be. It's enough to make even the strongest person feel like giving up. BUT...as someone who has personally fought this battle, I promise you that life can get better, in fact it can be great!

One of the purposes in life is to be happy and live a good life. However, daily living involves struggles and there are some difficulties and aspects of life that are inherently painful and hard to cope with. Psychotherapy is a useful way for many people to address and work on personal problems and, in so doing, create a better quality of living for themselves. I have great respect for clients who have the courage to face problems and I welcome you to call me to schedule an appointment.

I see a wide variety of individual and couples clients who hope to improve their circumstances (ages 15-99). Most of my clients have experienced some form of past hurt or other struggle. I work to manage conflict, disappointment, hurt feelings, sadness, grief, loss, or other strong emotions. My approach is empathic/patient but directive. My strategies are adapted from my experience with trauma (CPTSD), attachment, family dynamics, codependency, toxic shame, grief and loss, parent-child relationships (incl. estrangement), premarital counseling, life transitions. I hope my clients experience peace as a result of our work together!

Do you have recent trauma or loss? As a certified Brainspotting therapist, we can focus on releasing the painful emotions and reactions to recent trauma or loss that you no longer need dominating your life, if you're ready. These include grief (profound sadness, anger, shame, guilt, numbness and despair) anxiety, flashbacks, nightmares, and depression. The further back the trauma the more challenging it can be, however I try hard to be supportive and help achieve the change you want. I have worked with all kinds of trauma with compassion. I seek to help you achieve vitality, peace, confidence and wholeness in your body.

I have specialized in working with different ages over the past almost 3 decades and now get to work with them ALL. I creatively engage children/adolescents with interventions tailored to individual needs. I equip & support my clients' parents/guardians from a parent and clinician perspective. My favorite job of all time was directing a college counseling center as young adulthood is an ideal time for intervention to build resiliency and equip for the future. I want to meet adult clients in the midst of their challenges, crises, mental health struggles, and just plain life.
