In addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, trauma, or strained relationships, I can help you identify your goals and work towards them, in a warm and accepting environment.

Woah, stop for a second. Are you searching for a therapist? That’s a big step. Take your time. Give yourself some credit for being willing to face what’s got you feeling stuck. If you’re looking for someone unafraid of facing it with you, I might be your person. I’m informed by many therapies (like emotion-focused, IFS , and collaborative) but authenticity is always guiding my work. I believe in my clients. And I know that you can feel better if you’re given the right environment. What might that look like? Let’s figure it out together.

Through a variety of trauma informed modalities (including NARM and IFS ) we will work on strengthening trust, connection and authenticity.
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.

I work from a compassionate, person-centered perspective that includes Narrative Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Internal Family Systems , and EMDR.
Suffering, while valuable, doesn’t have to define you or your story. If you’re wanting to move beyond old hurts, or feeling stuck despite desiring change, together we can re-author your story to include healthier ways of thinking, feeling, and being. In addition to my office in Brookside, KCMO, I am also offering sessions via Telehealth for those who do not wish to leave their homes due to COVID-19 (client must reside in MO).

Through various methods (including EMDR & Internal Family systems ) we also help clients heal from trauma and other emotional wounds.
The focus of my work is helping men and women who are struggling with intimacy disorders and compulsive sexual/relationship behaviors (also known as sex, porn or love addiction) that have had negative impacts on a person's relationships, overall emotional well being, health, family, career and other aspects of life. Struggles with sexuality can involve a great deal of pain, guilt and shame. If this is your experience, finding a professional who can provide a safe and non-judgemental space is crucial. In addition, I work with individuals who experience difficulties creating and maintaining intimate connections in relationships.

"The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure you seek." Please allow me to be a fellow traveler on your journey into the unknown parts of yourself. I'll ask for a deep commitment from you to participate in this process of self-discovery and self-healing. I believe that everyday stress has roots in your past. It is important for us to bravely move into those spaces when you are ready. Your sense of safety is vital in this process and we will develop our therapeutic alliance so you feel grounded beforehand. With deep trust for one another, we can bring about lasting transformations.

I offer a holistic, trauma-informed approach to therapy, change and healing that is informed by neuroscience, including: EMDR, somatic-based, attachment-based, IFS /parts of self, Play Therapy, iRest, yoga.
Sometimes life is hard. We experience stress, difficult experiences, wounding in relationships, and trauma along with many other experiences. We carry these with us and they show up in our daily lives - in our thoughts, emotions, physical body, relationships with others, relationship with our self. Maybe you've noticed feeling stuck and overwhelmed. Weighed down. Maybe anxious. Maybe you've noticed patterns in your relationships. Maybe physical discomfort and pain. Tension in your body. Maybe you're curious about what you're noticing. Or maybe you’re curious about who YOU are – the authentic you.

I practice a modality called Internal Family Systems .
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.

I draw upon several modalities, including cognitive-behavioral, attachment-based, person-centered, AEDP, Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) and emotionally-focused therapy.
I believe that sometimes our greatest challenges can be a doorway to important change and growth. This can be true in our personal lives, romantic relationships, and families. I provide a safe and non-judgmental space for healing many issues, including grief, trauma, depression, anxiety, confusion, relationship issues, life transitions, and worry. 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.

I have additional training in Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an effective treatment for trauma, Internal Family Systems Theory, Play Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
I am a survivor of severe depression and anxiety and a highly sensitive person, both of which provide me with an ability to practice empathy as well as laugh and cry with clients in therapy.  I work with individuals who are ready to engage all parts of their stories (past, present and future) to move beyond their trauma, addictions, anxiety and depression in order to live lives of fullness and abundance. I draw on my experience raising four young children and being a husband of 10+ years to help others navigate their relationships.

I am here for those that are fed up, tired, lost, misunderstood, disconnected, and hopeless. Here is a place to release your burden and create a new path. You do not have to stay trapped in your confusion. You do not have to continue to shut down or shut out. You do not have to keep hiding. I can guide you into making sense of your experiences. This leads to new perspectives that allow space for making new meaning or finding solutions. Is your home a war zone? Has your spouse become a stranger? Your child out of control? Life unbearable? Let me help you find clarity in your circumstances and tools to move forward. Find your freedom.

My approach to psychotherapy is largely informed by the Analytical Psychology of Carl Jung. I believe in a theory of personal development that emphasizes the integration of all parts of the self into an experience of personal wholeness. This work is often referred to as "depth" psychology because it requires some familiarity and/or curiosity about one's own inner-world. We may explore the symbolic direction of dreams, psychological complexes, relationship patterns, family of origin dynamics, personal self-concepts, trauma histories, spiritual sensibilities, identity issues, personal purpose, & how the psyche manifests in the body.

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.

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.

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.

If you are here because you are going through a difficult time right now, please know you are not alone. Part of being human is the inevitability of encountering difficulty. Some of us accept this quite easily, but it is harder for us to accept ourselves while we face that difficulty. Sometimes the hardest thing we endure is lack of compassion for ourselves. Some of us, are experiencing difficulties for the first time (or first time at this extreme) and coping strategies that have worked in the past no longer serve us. All this individual difficulties are then multiplied by the troubles facing our world right now.
