Are you feeling overwhelmed by life? Are relationship challenges weighing you down? Do you have concerns that you might be using "a little too much" alcohol or other drugs to cope with it all? Using a warm, individually tailored approach, I offer you a space to process what's on your mind. We'll work together to help you find ways to cope with life, improve your relationships and restore your sense of joy in activities. I currently serve as the program manager and clinical supervisor at a nonprofit substance use treatment center here in Kansas City, but I'm now accepting new clients for private individual counseling.

I have worked with those wanting to manage symptoms of addiction , anxiety, depression, trauma, and personality disorders.
You will not go where you have not yet been without learning to do what you have not yet done. Many seek wellness, peace, joy, and such believing they must discover it for themselves, by themselves. Yet we see example after example that the most successful have guides, coaches, mentors, or counselors.

I specialize in individual therapy, couples counseling (including pre-marital), family counseling, substance issues, counseling with older teens and parenting teens.
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.

I specialize in addiction / recovery, husbands and fathers, mothers and caregivers of the elderly, or people experiencing illness, grief, trauma.
It can be difficult to gain the support we need to face life's many challenges. Many husbands and fathers are lonely, stressed, or confused about their relationships. The role of mother caring for children or daughter for an elderly parent can feel relentless. Perhaps you have pain you've pushed away for many years making you feel trapped or lost. Counseling can provide the opportunity to safely discuss and express the things we do not or cannot share in our day to day lives. I utilize an interpersonal and solutions focused approach to help unpack your struggles, process your pain, and build practical strategies to move forward.

You may find me appropriate if you are seeking emotional resilience, self-acceptance, or harmony in your relationships.

Our practice focuses on sexual addiction - for the addict, the partner and the couple. If you struggle with sex addiction (including pornography) you need someone who understands this addiction and has a plan for your recovery. We do. If you are the partner of a sex addict, it's important to take care of yourself and seek counsel from a compassionate therapist who understands your situation. Both the addict and the betrayed partner get better faster with a highly trained, highly focused supportive therapy team. Men and women have regained and even improved relationships through their work with us.

Being a parent is a joy like none other. This may however become challenging if your child (especially a teenager) battles emotional, behavioral, eating disorders, lack of confidence or addiction problems. Teenagers with these issues often argue, have hard time expressing emotions, have disruptive behavior, sudden change in eating habits and conscious of their body image. They might resort to use of alcohol or other drugs to escape struggles. This does not mean you are a bad parent; it is just a difficult time for your family. You just need someone to walk you through during this difficult time.

I welcome any problem a person is having, but have special interest and training in the areas of addiction (substances, gambling, sex, eating, gaming, etc.
Making the decision to seek help is the the first step towards living a healthier, happier life. The second step is finding the right therapist. I believe that success in therapy is dependent on the strength of the relationship between the counselor and client. I view myself as an advocate, a catalyst for change, and an objective sounding board, rather than an expert who can listen to your problems for an hour and then magically know how to run your life better than you do. You are the expert on you! My job is to help you learn how to help yourself.

Our ability to experience wellness is deeply tied to our thoughts, beliefs, and choices. When life overloads and overwhelms us, emotional and behavioral problems often emerge. We feel stuck, discouraged, angry, or scared. But we can also discover and develop new strengths and resources to equip us to effectively cope with the challenges of life. As a psychologist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, it is my privilege to help others on their journey to wellness. I work with adults age 18 and over and have expertise addressing a broad range of problems, including anxiety, depression, anger, poor self-image, and addiction .

Anxiety, depression, loneliness and grief from life stressors can increase tension and conflict in your relationships. You may wonder, "Does marriage counseling or therapy in general work?" "What are the signs a couple should get a counselor?" "Are other issues in our lives being overlooked, such as substance abuse, depression or overwhelming stress?" No single set of answers to these questions works for everyone, but together we will find new ideas and ways to ease your pain and make things better. I don't take sides. What ever the issues are, the process of healing and repair starts by getting some help. I am Medicare certified.

I have gained experience within private practice as well as within inpatient/outpatient substance use and mental health facilities.
Life can be so complicated. The ups, downs, and all arounds can sometimes be debilitating, confusing and all out frustrating. Life’s turbulence can also make you feel you’ve lost control and perhaps has left you struggling to navigate through obstacles. I would love to partner with you to help you realize the strength and resilience you have within to overcome and to manage. I teach vital tools to use in everyday life such as stress and anger management, coping skills, and the recognization of thought patterns that may affect your behaviors and emotions.

Addiction Therapists
A person with an addiction uses a substance, or engages in a behavior, for which the rewarding effects provide a compelling incentive to repeat the activity, despite detrimental consequences. Addiction may involve the use of substances such as alcohol, inhalants, opioids, cocaine, and nicotine, or behaviors such as gambling.
