I work using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychoanalytic as well as Humanistic.
Each client comes to therapy for different reasons. Your unique challenges, background, strengths, and life experiences will guide me as we collaborate on treatment goals and explore how to reach them. My first task is to practice active listening and nonjudgmental curiosity as we get to know one another. I believe that the relationship between client and therapist is what can provide the space for healing, growth, and improved mental health. Therapists are human, too, and we are constantly learning as we go. This is why I see clients as creative partners, not patients. We are in this unique process together.

I practice through a Contemporary Psychoanalytic and Attachment lens, approaching therapy holistically, whereby my focus encompasses all pieces of your story.
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.

I am a Distinguished Fellow and Past President of the American Group Psychotherapy Association, a psychoanalsyst certified by the American Psychoanalytic Association and President-Elect of the International Association for Group Psychotherapy and Group Processes.
I believe that most people at some time can benefit from talking with a professional about emotional problems that they are encountering, although many persons I see worry that there is something "wrong" with them and feel they should be able to improve their situations thembselves. Difficulties in relationships, problems concerning work or recovering from bad experiences can be painful parts of life and talking about them can hasten change and improvement. As we develop a relationship with one another and reflect about the problems together, over time, I have found that people discover new ways of meeting the challenges that brought them to me.

My approach to counseling is rooted in relational psychoanalytic work and engages people as their whole selves. I attend to what is happening in the room. This includes what is coming up in your thoughts, feelings, and body.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques and orientations when working with individuals depending on their goals and presenting concerns, but often make use of Person-Centered therapy, Relational therapy, Attachment Based therapy, and other Psychoanalytic theories.
I’ve been providing individual therapy for adults, teens, and children for over 7 years. Individuals I've served have varied considerably in regards to the issues that have brought them in for counseling. I take great care to understand that each person I work with is a unique and complex individual needing services tailored to them.

You'll find a sense of security and benefit from my training with the Greater Kansas City Psychoanalytic Institute, Kansas Bar Association for Certified Mediator and the Chicago Institute of Psychoanalysis.
Why, despite good intentions, do you repeat something that isn't good for you? How can you learn compassion for yourself and others - instead of judging or shaming? How can you think 'outside the box' and recognize your fear of risk? Psychotherapy provides a place to explore what needs to happen so you can feel mastery in life. I'll work with you to gain awareness and see alternatives.

I've completed 4 years of training at the Greater Kansas City-Topeka Psychoanalytic Institute and am working towards my doctorate at the Boston Graduate School of Psychoanalysis.
I believe change is possible for all of us, and I have seen that change develop in many clients over the course of a collaborative treatment. I believe that, working together, we can develop a rich and fulfilling understanding of each client’s personality. I have training in psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, and I use that frame to provide an environment that promotes healing, awareness, and growth. I have also used components of cognitive behavioral and dialectic behavioral services in outpatient group therapy, and I blend these tools with the psychodynamic frame to provide an individualized approach.

I draw on attachment and psychoanalytic theory to help individuals better understand themselves at a deeper level and how their past experiences influence their current life and relationships.
People start to heal the moment they feel heard. I believe that hope and healing can be found, even in places of great pain. Life can become stressful and feel overwhelming at times. Having someone to walk beside you through those times helps ease the burden. As we develop a relationship with each other, I have found that people develop insight into what brought them in to see me. I focus on the whole person and try to understand what is being communicated through the behaviors, not just focusing on the symptoms.

There are many presenting issues that might bring you to counseling. Finding a therapist that you can connect with and build an alliance with is important to your success in therapy. I work very hard to create a relationship that will provide you the safety and warmth that you need to explore your experiences; I am very comfortable earning your trust. I use different treatment modalities, depending upon which is appropriate for you personally. Empathy is the primary tool used to give you the safety you need to explore your inner world while we begin to understand your experiences together.

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.

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.

With 30 years experience in mental health, I have a conviction about the human capacity to grow, develop, and adapt throughout life. I appreciate that each person brings to therapy a unique self: the combination of one's personal characteristics, early family relationships, and life experiences. I practice from a psychodynamic perspective to better understand your current situation in a safe therapeutic environment of curiosity and collaboration.

On the outside it seems like you have it all together, but inside it feels like you are falling apart. You’re tired of lacking confidence in yourself and feeling alone in your struggles. You feel guilty about the frustration and overwhelm you feel each day. It’s like you’re the one carrying all the weight. You’ve worked hard for success, but you aren't living the authentic life you hoped for, and you’ve basically resigned yourself to the idea that you may never find the fulfillment in relationships that you’ve found in your career.

If you're reading this, I want you to know how courageous it is that you've already taken the first step: asking for help. It's something no one wants to do, but I've been there, and it can be the change you need to live the life you were meant to. Being vulnerable and brave enough to tell your story is tough. But getting you to the place where you can actually own your story, and maybe even write a new ending, is totally worth it.

I am a seasoned clinician who, for over 35 years, has empowered clients to lead more meaningful and productive lives. If you suffer from anxiety, trauma, or depression, or if you find interpersonal relationships to be challenging and unsatisfying, talking with an experienced psychotherapist can drastically improve the quality of your life. Therapy is an opportunity to gain insight into the workings of your mind, to better understand how your internal reality shapes your external one (and vice versa). If some introspection has opened you to the possibility of therapy, the chances are already very good that you would benefit from it.

My clients generally reach out for help when struggling with an adjustment, a loss, or a relationship that has problems. I most often see women, during pregnancy or postpartum, or at other times of crisis or difficulty during their lives. The relationship that I form with my clients is the most important aspect of the therapy, as it is the trust and emotional safety that is the foundation for the work we will do. It is within that therapeutic relationship that a deeper understanding of oneself and change can occur.

Psychoanalytic Therapists
Psychoanalysis is an in-depth form of therapy. The client learns what conscious and unconscious wishes drive their patterns of thinking and behavior on the theory that, by making the unconscious conscious, they will make more educated choices over how they think and act.
