Trauma, anxiety, relationship conflict and so many other things can impact our lives.
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.

This approach has lasting impacts on your relationship with partners, children, friends, colleagues and self.
Hello. I am so glad you’re here. I understand and have deep appreciation for what it takes to be here. Across my time in a variety of mental health work I have found this piece of research holds true-The strongest indicator of how much you get out of therapy depends on the therapeutic relationship . While I trust you will do important work once you meet your therapist, this is a vital step. My approach is focused on building tools, language, habits and behavior that supports a connection between the cognitive mind and the emotional self in order to create a sustainable deep change. I focus on sustainable rather than immediate change.

It’s okay to say, "I'm not okay." If trying to return to “normal life” post pandemic is harder than you thought & you’re sad or anxious and not sure why- you are not alone. Life is messy but good therapy ends. Maybe your life looks nothing like it did two years ago & you’re reeling and only now catching your breath and struggling to breathe. Maybe your life looks the same and you feel different but you’re stuck, overwhelmed and don’t know what to do next. What we allow will continue & lasting change requires work. Often starting the work & reaching out is a daunting task but when we avoid our stories, that's when they define us.

I believe a vital part of the therapy process is the relationship built between the two of us, by which we can bridge an authentic relationship and begin exploring your experiences.
Transitions are a natural progression in life, which at times can leave us feeling alone, overwhelmed, and terrified. Much like the seasons; our hopes, dreams, and relationships change. Maneuvering through these chapters in our lives can be a daunting process. In my experience, when a person can share their struggles within therapy, they can begin to better understand their thoughts, emotions, and how this influences their relationships with others.

Over the last several years, I have expanded my scope and focus to relationship work, premarital/marital/divorce concerns, sexual issues and the high conflict couple dynamic.
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 have been in private practice for over twenty years. During those years I have counseled both individual clients and couples with a variety of issues. These issues include relationship issues , life transitions, abuse, depression, eating disorders, grief, stress, anxiety, sexual identity, and parenting issues. I believe we all go through difficult periods in our lives where we need someone to talk to who can give understanding, support, guidance, tools, and suggestions. I believe that counseling can often help our lives become less painful but instead become more hopeful and fulfilling.

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.

The primary areas of focus include trauma, life transitions, pregnancy/post partum, & relationship stress.
Life is a journey, a journey that is most difficult when traveled alone. I strive to walk with clients on their path towards healing and happiness. Working from a client-centered approach, it is essential for me to understand each client as an individual to develop trust and a partnership in therapy. Relationships, trauma, careers and other stressors take a toll on a person's ability to flourish. I believe that each person has potential for growth from those experiences. My goal is to help you regain your footing on your path to living a full and vibrant life.

My approach concentrates on thought and behavior patterns, relationship dynamics, and how these combine to affect you daily.
You may find the life you are living isn't healthy, or is in need of some change. With over 20 years in private practice, I have had the opportunity to help men and women make significant improvements in their relationships and in their life direction. If you are an individual needing to make a significant change, or a couple needing relationship help, I offer an individualized and practical approach. First, we will find what isn't working for you and identify the core changes you want to make. Then, together we will map out realistic steps to make that change happen.

"Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes." C.G. Jung-- You might suffer from anxiety, depression, grief, and/or relationship issues , but the key is that you are willing to explore why. My philosophy is holistic in that I feel like it is important to examine each part of life because I truly believe everything is connected when it concerns mental, emotional, and physical suffering and pain. I have recently completed a yoga teacher certification so I am able to incorporate somatic principles and movement into my work with clients.

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.

I believe that mental health is a vital component in creating a complete and satisfying experience of personhood. It's as important to take care of your inner life and psychological well-being as it is to take care of your physical health. I feel that every individual is unique, and therefore every therapeutic relationship is unique. For counseling to be effective, it is essential that you find a therapist with whom you feel comfortable and understood. The key ingredient for successful results in psychotherapy is a strong relationship between you and your therapist.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.

If you're looking for a Kansas City relationship therapist, these professionals provide relationship therapy and counseling in Kansas City.
