Through my licensure and training as a Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist and Registered Play Therapist, I help clients work through trauma, family issues and parent child relationships.
I believe that all families, couples, and individuals can be empowered to make change. Finding the therapist that understands how you are experiencing life is often anxiety provoking. Change is difficult, especially when people feel judged or shamed. I value the relationship I have with my clients. I work hard to make sure that every Client's story is taken seriously and heard, regardless of the situation.

Drawing on my previous experience as a youth pastor, I enjoy working with children, teenagers, and young adults. As a play therapist, I have worked extensively with children who are struggling with ADHD and trauma. I also enjoy working with couples and families, and individuals who struggle with addiction, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues and PTSD. The challenge of parenting sparks my interest and I enjoy using humor, emotion coaching, and intergenerational systemic family theories to illuminate and strengthen the resources that parents already have to offer. I believe that solutions can be found by viewing obstacles as opportunities for repair.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Wichita, KS provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Wichita build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
