I appreciate how childhood experiences influence one’s development and the entire family system.
My approach to therapy is to be there in the moment with each client, utilizing my past experiences, education and training in trauma to provide an empathetic ear and guide you to feeling better and uncovering the life you dream of. As a person-centered therapist, I bring a strength-based approach, along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy interventions. You are not alone in your journey; how you feel about what is going on in your life is valid, and hope and healing can be achieved. I am passionate about empowering each client to embody their strengths and find resiliency in their daily lives.

I specialize in working with individuals, couples, and families .
It's hard to find a therapist. Especially when you're not feeling your best. I applaud you for getting this far. Now it's time to invest in your relationship with yourself. I know what it’s like to feel alone with your problems. Maybe you have no one to talk to. Or maybe you feel bad making your friends, your family , or your partner listen to your problems again. I know what that feels like, and I’m here. I’m ready to listen. It’s time to let go of anxiety, sadness, frustration, anger, and shame. I want to process these things with you. You don’t have to go through this alone anymore.

Family therapy guru, Virginia Satir, says "I want you to get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you.
Maybe you're feeling stuck. Maybe you are seeking answers but not able to see through the darkness. Maybe peace feels impossible. Maybe you're questioning who you are or going through a life transition. Maybe it's your relationship or parenting or past hurts. This life experience is filled with highs, lows, and in-between moments. At times, we all want someone to join in our journey and walk alongside us so we can feel supported. I am here to meet you where you are in your life right now. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I believe that all of life is relational, whether that is within or outside with family , friends, society.

My approach to treating you or your family depends on your presenting problems and what techniques seem to work best for you.
*I am not currently accepting new clients. Sorry!* I am an experienced clinical psychologist who has spent 15 years developing my knowledge and skills for addressing problems that occur in families such as problematic parent-child dynamics. I am also well equipped to address internalizing disorders such as depression, anxiety, suicidality, and PTSD in children, teens, and adults. While I use evidenced-based techniques that are informed by scientific research, I do so in the context of a warm and caring therapeutic relationship. I strive to understand your personal struggles without minimizing what you are going through.

There are few joys greater than interpersonal freedom. Living unabashedly and authentically as you deserve and desire. This is our true heritage as humans. When we are barraged daily to find this freedom externally by our culture, (perhaps friends and family ) and then osmotically transfer it inward we are left deeply lacking. It never works. The cost of freedom and to a higher level of awareness about ourselves is called work. W-O-R-K! The digging deep kind of work. Working to let go of anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, or whatever repeatedly binds us to a negative narrative from the past that no longer serves the present.

After moving to Kansas City, I pursued a MA in Counseling Psychology at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, with an emphasis in marriage and family therapy.
For over ten years, I have worked to help individuals and couples empower themselves and achieve desired change in their lives. I believe in a direct, yet compassionate approach to therapy, which stems from my extensive training and experience practicing Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Act and Commitment Therapy, therapy for high-conflict couples, and behavioral interventions for eating disordered clients. I focus on utilizing evidence-based therapies, self care, gratitude, mindfulness, skills training, and the client's personal value system in order to nurture hope and help clients achieve their goals.

I work with individuals, couples, families and veterans.
Sometimes we experience life changing events that cause us lose sight of our hopes and dreams. Our fears can deceive us into believing that we will never be okay again. We do not have to be defined by what has happened to us. I believe that no matter what we have been through we have the potential to create for ourselves, a happy, rich and full life worth living. It is not easy to overcome the bad experiences but it is possible. Therapy can increase psychological flexibility and allow us to not be open again. If you are tired of being limited and ready to make real changes therapy can help you create the life you wish to have.

Life can bring many challenges that eventually become too much for even for the strongest individuals and families to carry.
*Not currently accepting new clients* I believe the most important principles of therapy are humor, compassion and education. I am committed to helping you experience positive change, improve relationships, and gain a greater sense of personal strength and growth so you can better enjoy each day. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?

I am heartened by people's willingness to reach out and courageously rediscover hope. The journey of life can be challenging and overwhelming. There are times when we are left standing at crossroads feeling disconnected or unappreciated. You may be experiencing loneliness, shame or guilt. Or may have reached a point of hopelessness or sheer frustration. I walk along side my clients as they revitalize relationships, empower their authentic self, and realize inherent potential. I provide therapy for couples, families and individuals, and welcome those of any age, gender, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

As I get to know you (and, for couples, your partner), I will utilize techniques from an integrative theoretical framework, which includes Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, ACT principles, Existential Therapy, & Family Systems Theory.
My job is to help you work through life's challenges so that you can attain a greater sense of wellbeing and fulfillment. I start with listening carefully to how you construct the world and identify problems. It is important to first understand where you are before we work towards where you want to go. Sometimes, it's important for me understand where you've been too, but I certainly do not want to dwell in the past. Most people want to be more connected to the present, while also orienting themselves toward positive future aims. This is precisely what our work will be about.
