My background is in the assessment and treatment of chronic mental illness, psychosis, trauma, and personality disorders .
Life can seem like a chore rather than a joy. Choosing a therapist you feel comfortable with is important. I help individuals work through the worst to discover their best. Therapy is about the relationship and authenticity is important. I love my work and my clients can feel that. I meet with clients inside my home. It’s traditional psychotherapy in the best way. Where we meet is private and has been described as “cozy” and “great.” It includes my favorite couch and too many books.

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.

Dr. Maxwell specializes in treating chronically turbulent emotions, as well as difficulties relating comfortably and effectively to others. Sometimes these experiences go along with a feeling of not knowing who one is, as well as making rash choices one often regrets. These experiences may or may not be related to abuse(s) and/or neglect experienced in one’s childhood and teenage years. Clinically, these experiences sometimes manifest as personality disorders and/or complex posttraumatic stress disorder. He also helps people curb unruly anxiety, combat avoidance, disrupt depressive thinking patterns, and reshape unhelpful habits.

I believe that we can heal and grow if given the appropriate environment. As a therapist, trauma specialist, and speaker, I take on a collaborative, multi-faceted approach that incorporates neuroscience, attachment, and trauma-informed resources. I am committed to working with individuals from all walks of life to help them gain clarity and achieve goals, while identifying and integrating trauma that may be keeping them stuck. Whether you're coping with an identity crisis, grief/loss, narcissistic abuse, a tough life transition, or a chronic "stuck" pattern (or all of the above!), YOU ARE NOT ALONE. YOU ARE NOT BROKEN.

I specialize in PTSD, whether it's from childhood, domestic, and/or narcissistic abuse.
Being a survivor myself, I work with adults who've survived toxic family and unhealthy relationships who are ready to feel safe in their own bodies mentally, emotionally, and physically. We will start to discover on a deep level the root of your discomfort and how to set necessary boundaries to build a solid foundation of trust and self-compassion while letting go of what no longer serves you on your journey to finding the next level you! I help break harmful behavior patterns, increase inner strength, identify toxic personalities, build healthy boundaries and relationships, grow supportive networks, and rewire destructive thoughts.

I believe therapeutic relationships rooted in attachment can help ease burdens, and restore hope, even during seasons of great suffering. Feeling stuck in life patterns can sometimes isolate us, create hopelessness, and erode self-esteem. Feeling isolated can affect how we feel about ourselves and think about our bonds with friends, family, and business colleagues. In therapy, we work towards a therapeutic relationship rooted in authenticity, honesty, and trust to encourage hope through the restoration of connections. As the therapeutic relationship deepens, individuals develop insight into what initially brought them to see me.

What type of Kansas City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Kansas City?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
