I have been trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which focused on the attachment bond between the couple and how to build and strengthen the relationship.
My passion is helping people achieve healthy relationships that honor, strengthen, and validate the people in them. I enjoy helping young men and women to build significant and open relationships on their way through dating and engagement as well as working with them on tools to address the conflict in their marriage. Often times unchecked anxiety leads to depression and I have many effective tools for people who struggle in attending to their anxiety in an effective way. I work with addictions of all kinds in a non shaming, caring, effective, and healing way.

So, here you are looking for some help. Well done--as it is often a challenge, beginning to look for options/help. It is no small task getting beyond where you are, and then moving toward what you want. Sorting it all out can feel overwhelming, just like actually making that first call to a therapist. I applaud your courage and wisdom in sorting it out and in seeking assistance. I would love to be a part of helping you discover this process, and to share some of your upcoming journey. When you are ready, please give me a call. I am right here.

I use experiential methods - AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy) and EFT ( Emotionally Focused Therapy) in my work and have seen incredible transformation and growth.
Whether you are struggling in your relationship, dealing with loneliness from the multiple issues we've dealt with the past year (pandemic, grief, trauma), or simply needing to process some things with someone objectively, I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a platform for deep transformation and continued growth.

When working with couples, I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which helps couples heal their core relationship wounds. I also enjoy working with Highly Sensitive People (HSPs), and I have a lot of empathy for those who feel deeply and have a more sensitive nervous system.

Feeling stuck, chaotic, overwhelmed, purposeless, anxious? Do you ever find yourself doing the same things over and over wishing you would have a different outcome? Do you feel consumed by your thoughts? Do you feel like you and your partner just don’t get each other? Often time asking for help and finding help is overwhelming. You want to make a change, make things better, but you don’t know how. You want to feel like you again - not to just keep surviving, but start living intentionally and passionately. You want the anxiety, the intrusive thoughts and the sleepless nights to end - to be present with yourself and your loved ones.

I find the greatest joy in working with families to repair and build nurturing relationships. Coming from a playful perspective I love to help children and their parents find their self-worth and express their true feelings in ways that they can understand each other. I utilize my training and background in child development studies to help children and parents understand each other in appropriate ways. I keep in mind that each child and family is unique, seeking to understand without judgment.

Being a human happens. Struggle happens. Fear happens. Hurt happens. Stuckness happens. Whatever you're going through...happens. Now what? If you're human, like me, you might avoid it, numb it, push it down, sleep more, drink more, eat more, do more and so on. Well, shit. That's not helping! So you decide to maybe talk to someone. Yay, you! I'm so glad you did. If you learn anything from this search process, know this; you are not defected or broken. You are a complex human and that's a good thing. You are capable of of not only the hard-of-life, but the ease, joy and the pleasure too.

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.

Emotionally Focused Therapists
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is an approach to therapy that helps clients identify their emotions, learn to explore and experience them, to understand them and then to manage them. Kansas City Emotionally Focused Therapy embraces the idea that emotions can be changed, first by arriving at or 'living' the maladaptive emotion (e.g. loss, fear or shame) in session, and then learning to transform it. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples seeks to break the negative emotion cycles within relationships, emphasizing the importance of the attachment bond between couples, and how nurturing of the attachment bonds and an empathetic understanding of each others emotions can break the cycles.
