"Holler if you hear me." Rap legend, Tupac Shakur, pled for the world to signal back to him that his thoughts, feelings and experiences were being heard. To verify that he was not crazy or out of control. So many of us have been silenced, taught to bury our truths and to hide from ourselves. Such practices develop mental, emotional and physical illnesses that then impact generations to come. People need a safe place to release, to connect and to explore the depths of which they were taught not to venture. No matter the age or magnitude of issues, it is vital for you to speak your mind and for empathy to be returned.

Wouldn't it be nice to turn down the voice in your head, to not have to deal with its constant criticism and attack? It keeps ruining things: putting you down, telling you you're not good enough, making you second guess everything you do. Then the spiral starts. It's your fault, all your fault, and your relationships suffer because of... you. Yep, there's definitely something wrong with you, the voice says. You don't have problems. You ARE the problem. If this sounds familiar and you're tired of fighting yourself, we should talk.

Relationships can be difficult. I work with clients to develop and execute plans to help them reach the goals they would like to achieve; both individually and within the context of their relationships. Therapy is a collaborative process, and I work hard to ensure my clients feel comfortable, well informed about their treatment goals and progress, and that the therapeutic methods being used align the two. In this space of authenticity and safety, clients are able to reach the insight and connection they've been missing in their relationships with themselves, their partners, and others.

What type of Independence 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Independence?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
