I enjoy working with people with anxiety disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Social Phobia, Agoraphobia, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Specific Phobias) as well as depression , and have clients who have been successful with each of them.
I have had the pleasure of working as a therapist since 2001 and have been helpful to people struggling with a variety of difficulties. My clients generally describe me as kind, gentle, calm, and humorous. I practice primarily from a cognitive-behavioral perspective, but also incorporate other models to augment cognitive therapy.

Are you struggling with depression , anxiety, anger, trauma, or relationship issues? Do you feel alone, like no one could possibly understand what you're going through? I'd like to help. I help people find the strength they need to climb out of the hole that leaves them feeling stuck. I believe people can be burdened by previous life experiences, causing them to feel paralyzed. Figuring out and understanding the difficulties of your past can help you move on and experience joy in your present and future.

As a practitioner of Jungian, depth, and psychodynamic psychotherapy, I specialize in supporting those who feel stuck, down, depressed , or anxious; those who are searching for purpose, calling, or meaning; and those who are interested in incorporating dreamwork into the therapeutic process. Often, when we find ourselves at a standstill or in a crisis, our potential for healing and transformation comes from the unconscious side of the psyche. Since 2014, I have specialized in supporting veterans as they seek to heal and transform after war and military service, as well as first responders in search of healing.

Hello! My clients are individuals who quietly struggle with their mental health. On the surface they seem to have it all together- they appear successful and calm, they’re excelling at work/school, and their home life is not too chaotic. Although they show no visible signs of distress, internally they feel off. Under the surface they’re experiencing low self-esteem, battling insecurities and fear, feeling anxious, feeling depressed , and have high levels of stress. Their outward appearance of success and achievement only seems to send them deeper into emotional distress because they feel like they should be happy. Sound familiar?

I provide psychological assessment and psychotherapy services. Though I understand the value of "diagnosing" a person's particular problem, I'm definitely against labeling a person as such. A person's difficulties--you name it: anxiety, trauma, depression --is what it means in part to be human. Everyone has some type of challenge, to various degrees (and certainly, some more than others). What a client requires, in many cases, is adequate resolution about negative things that has happened to him or her in life. Also, clients often need new skills in dealing with life's current and future expected challenges.

This treatment appeals to those with treatment resistant depression and those who have not improved with talk therapy alone.
Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP) is an advanced treatment for mental distress caused by maladaptive patterns of thoughts and behaviors. Unlike ketamine infusion, KAP is a relational experience. A psychotherapist will guide and support you, and integrate the healing that occurs during the expansiveness of the ketamine experience. This treatment has shown significant improvement in those with mood disorders and PTSD symptoms.

Life is hard, and everyone needs support at one time or another. If you're experiencing anxiety, depression , tough relationships, or difficult transitions, you're not alone. You might lack confidence in your recent life choices. You might feel as if you don't have many options right now. You might feel stuck in a never-ending cycle of the "same old". Again, I say... you're not alone.

I work with many types of problems, including depression , anxiety, worry, grief, anger, stresses related to work or school, relationship difficulties, and problems related concentration, organization, and procrastination.
Everyone experiences stress in their lives. Sometimes this is temporary and manageable, sometimes overwhelming. When things seem too difficult to handle alone, counseling can help. When I work with people, I see them as partners in their care. Old habits of thinking and reacting to situations in life can seem difficult to overcome. Together we discover what seems to be the source of the problems, explore what has worked and not worked so far, and find new ways of dealing with what is causing emotional pain. I sometimes suggest ways to practice new responses or behaviors between meetings.

It is a privilege to work with clients on personal and relational health, healing attachment wounds, creating a more secure sense of identity, and understanding one's sense of purpose while navigating the emotional distress that comes from my client's experiences with anxiety, depression , rejection, resentment, grief, infidelity, and disappointment.
The path to wellness and freedom involves choosing to start or continue a journey of healing and restoration. My desire is to help individuals, couples, and families along their own unique paths of transformation, change, and growth. I believe that emotional and relational wellness are an important piece of a holistic picture of health. I am a proponent of therapy because I have personally experienced the benefits and the sense of empowerment that comes from the process.

I have had extensive experience working with individuals experiencing depression , anxiety, stress, life transitions as well as maternal and child mental health.
My approach to therapy is grounded in the belief that you know yourself best. In therapy, I am not the expert on your life; you are. I will serve as a guide as you work through the messy, raw, and unfiltered areas of your life. Together, we will discuss and implement strategies to make your burdens feel lighter. My wild hope for you is that you go forward with the skills and confidence to thrive. I am also trained in EMDR. This is a modality that provides people the opportunity to heal from challenging and traumatic experiences.

Depression Therapists
Depressive disorders are characterized by persistent feelings of sadness and worthlessness and a lack of desire to engage in formerly pleasurable activities. Depression is not a passing blue mood, which almost everyone experiences from time to time, but a complex mind/body illness that interferes with everyday functioning. It not only darkens one's outlook, it is commonly marked by sleep problems and changes in energy levels and appetite. It alters the structure and function of nerve cells so that it disrupts the way the brain processes information and interprets experience.

Despite feelings of hopelessness and worthlessness, depression is a treatable condition. It can be treated with psychotherapy by depression therapists in Kansas City. As with many illnesses, the earlier treatment begins, the more effective it can be and the greater the likelihood that recurrence can be prevented.

Psychotherapy addresses the thinking patterns that precipitate depression, and studies show that it prevents recurrence. Drug therapy is often helpful in relieving symptoms, such as severe anxiety, so that people can engage in meaningful psychotherapy.
