I love to help people struggling with trauma, loss, relationships and the difficulties of life. I would love to help you find wisdom and healing from suffering.

Perhaps you - or you and your partner - are standing on a threshold, a doorway between the life you have known and the life ahead of you. You may feel disconnected from yourself, from what used to give your life meaning, from that spark that used to enliven your relationship. You are walking in the dark, overwhelmed by the unknown, maybe feeling depressed or anxious, or both. I am here to sit with you in that scary, and sometimes exciting space, to help you be attentive to your deepest needs, fears, and longings, to communicate clearly and gently, and to uncover the deep well of wisdom and love that lies within and between you.

Do you ever feel like it is you against the world? Or wonder if there is anyone “in your corner”? This world can throw all sorts of difficulties our way and sometimes it is helpful to know you are not alone in the fight. Those difficulties may present with symptoms of depression, anxiety, fear, worthlessness, addiction, trauma, negative thinking, or loss. I understand first-hand how tempting it is to give up the fight, but I also know the joyful victory that comes with healing and freedom. I am holding hope for you even if, right now, you are not able to hope for yourself. I believe there is abundant life and wholeness for YOU!

Transitions are a natural progression in life, which at times can leave us feeling alone, overwhelmed, and terrified. Much like the seasons; our hopes, dreams, and relationships change. Maneuvering through these chapters in our lives can be a daunting process. In my experience, when a person can share their struggles within therapy, they can begin to better understand their thoughts, emotions, and how this influences their relationships with others.

We are not meant to live life alone, but rather deeply involved in relationships. Some of these relationships are highly successful, while others have come with great loss, significant struggle or just the every day difficulty of learning to live and enjoy life with another person. I believe in the value of working through personal problems in the context of building stronger relationships. I will help you work through this on a personal level or with whomever you are needing to have a restored relationship with.

Accepting new clients! I'm so glad you are here. The hardest part of getting help is reaching out to make that first appointment and you are one step closer. Childhood mental health issues have been rising for awhile now and we saw an even bigger increase the past few years. Not only are our children struggling, it is hard work learning to parent our children with mental health needs. Navigating depression, anxiety, mood swings, trauma, etc is not meant to be done alone. I believe in working alongside you, your child, and family as we tackle issues together.

Hello there! Do you struggle with anxiety, ADHD, or something related to sexuality? Do you struggle with a behavior, or behaviors, almost as if driven, like an addiction? Perhaps you have questions about your sexuality or gender, concerns about sexual pain, or even concerns about your enjoyment of sex. These statements represent a few ideas of what I specialize in as a professional mental health counselor. Through working within my specializations, I also treat depression, OCD, PTSD, and various personality concerns.

I can help any person who has lost the thread of meaning in their life. A person who might even be asking themselves, What is the point of continuing on? There might be past traumas, depression and/or anxiety, perhaps harmful behaviors they can't seem to shake. There might be a great deal of fear. But ultimately, they need a fresh perspective on what it means for them to be alive, and to regain the sense that their choices matter.

Maybe your anxiety or stress is compounded by intersectional identities such as gender, sexuality, or race. Maybe you find yourself doom scrolling on social media in order to numb the world around you, have difficulty communicating with loved ones, or are searching for your sense of self after years of being told your true self was not enough. Maybe it’s even 2 am as you read this after a sleepless hour of thinking about all the embarrassing things that you’ve experienced. Now, wait. Take a breath, notice anything coming up for you and acknowledge it. It can be here without disrupting your purpose.

I work with survivors of sexual abuse and assault and those affected by anaphylactic food allergies. People who've experienced these traumas often begin feeling a sense of losing control over their lives. I want you to know that you can heal from trauma and I can help you with that process. I will work with you to figure out how to mange anxiety, fear, sleep and relationship problems or any other symptoms you're experiencing. We can then work together to decide which approach to trauma processing is best for you.

Maybe you’ve tried everything. You’ve spent the last of your energy and hope. It feels like depression and anxiety are winning. Or drugs or alcohol are taking over. It’s a scary place to be. And can feel lonely. But you don’t have to be alone. I work with clients in this scary place and am unafraid to step into these challenges with you. You already have the strength and courage to do this. I can help you find your own way to make different choices for yourself and make your situation better.

Transition feels like a natural progression throughout life. Much like seasons change from Summer to Fall; we experience the ebb and flow within relationships, dreams, families, and our internal worlds. Maneuvering through changes can be terrifying and sometimes overwhelming. I find through sharing our struggles one can start the process of gaining insight into ourselves and our relationships. It is my belief that most people have an innate need for connection and a natural desire to be seen, heard, and understood. I find patients begin to develop stronger connections and experience more lasting relief through our relationship.

What type of Kansas City 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 Kansas City?
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.
