As a therapist, my goal is to help guide clients through the uncomfortable and often painful process of making life changes and better understanding themselves. Many of my clients struggle with trauma that has kept them stuck in a cycle. I am here to help clients navigate through difficult feelings, relationships, and/or experiences and develop ways to live a healthier, happier lifestyle. Also, as an athlete and a coach, I have unique insight working with athletes of all ages and levels. In sports performance , unlocking the mental side of the sport and making it work for you can help you achieve your next level.

My credentials are Singularly Unique in the business of Sports Psychology .
As a sports psychologist, I have a unique practice in that I specialize in working with athletes who have the desire to take their game to the next level. Being a competitive athlete helps me relate to other competitive people in sports or business. My primary focus is on confidence building and the elimination of performance anxiety. I use a 3 tiered approach to training: Perspective Training, Mental Skills Training, and Applied Settings (if applicable at a sporting location). I am the only professional to offer that kind of travel service. We also offer Coaching Certification Programs for those who are interested in teaching.

The clients I have worked with have a variety of issues. Usually these are related to their self confidence and can be impacted by their relationships with parents, teammates, coaches, teachers and competitors. They typically want assistance at guiding them to understand their goals, strengths, weaknesses, fears, distractions and stressors. We will work thru their communication with others, their preparation, focus, attitude and self confidence. Most clients want to understand where their issues started, find solutions to them and ways to be more confident and happy with themselves and accomplishing their personal goals.

Hello there, athlete (and sport parents)! I'm glad you're here. Being an athlete is amazing (most days), but it comes with challenges. Maintaining a high level of performance AND enjoying your sport experience can be tough. Maybe you've lost your confidence, can't shake anxious thoughts, or you're afraid of letting others down. Maybe you're feeling the demands of athlete life. You're probably doing a lot of traveling, training, practicing and competing, sometimes sacrificing a personal life for your sport goals. Challenges with coaches and teammates happen too. Seeking support is such a strong choice. We'll work through it together.

Life can be pretty overwhelming at times. During the stressful times, you may have difficulty finding a way to cope and make the changes necessary to improve your life. The great thing about therapy is that it serves as a way to help you cope with the stressors in your life and helps you make the changes you desire.

I am currently only accepting new clients for Assessments (ADHD, learning disabilities, mood disorders, etc). Do you feel stuck, or at an impasse in your current life? Perhaps the use of a substance or a behavior has become a larger piece of your life than you wanted it to. It could be that anxiety or depression have kept you from achieving what you want, or being who you want to be. Maybe you’ve had a change in your life that’s been difficult to handle. Perhaps your child/teen is having difficulty at home or in school. I have experience working with clients of all ages, and tailor my approach to each individual.

You are an athlete, a performer, a person with a purpose. What ever your passions are, I want to help you chase after your goals as you pursue greatness. No matter the odds or circumstances you are facing, I believe in coaching someone to help them achieve their maximum potential mentally, emotionally, and physically. The topics we will cover will be with you long after your playing days are over. Of course I want to see you have success in the current season of your life, but I am also invested in seeing who you become as an individual outside of sport. The Good Lord has a plan for you. Let's talk about it.

Many come to me for support in their sport or their lives, working through an obstacle getting in the way of their success - whether that is an injury, a lack of confidence, difficulty focusing, or more general mental health issues like depression and anxiety, affecting their ability to fully engage in what they love. Others may be retired from their sport or perhaps just really value exercise as a major component of their identity and want to connect with someone who gets that. My clients love to set goals and put in the work. Where ever you're at, you know you want to improve and you're willing to do what it takes to get there.

If you have ever dealt with anxiety, panic attacks, or fears of letting others down you have been fighting a battle that you don't need to continue to fight. We help individuals control their anxiety by teaching them techniques and tools that will allow them to regain control over their emotions. These are the same skills that professional athletes use to deal with the anxiety and the enormous amounts of pressure they deal with on a daily basis.

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.

Taking the first steps in finding a therapist can be an overwhelming and intimidating experience. This I know, as well as how important it is to find someone that you can be open with and trust. I work with people who experience anything from anxiety, depression and trauma related disorders to pre and postpartum mothers. Navigating life can be difficult and scary at times, just know that you don't have to do this alone.

Transition feels like a natural progression throughout life. Much like seasons change from Summer to Fall; we experience the ebb and flow within relationships, dreams, families, and our internal worlds. Maneuvering through changes can be terrifying and sometimes overwhelming. I find through sharing our struggles one can start the process of gaining insight into ourselves and our relationships. It is my belief that most people have an innate need for connection and a natural desire to be seen, heard, and understood. I find patients begin to develop stronger connections and experience more lasting relief through our relationship.

Find what you truly seek. You've spent enough time searching. Let's get you out of this place. You see the traps you keep falling into, the ones you can’t make it through alone. You know better but need help to get there. Find liberation from your bad habits. Caring so much about meaningless thoughts, tangling yourself in webs of superficiality, losing yourself to old coping mechanisms. Be done with all of it. Let’s do something about those familiar grooves you get stuck in. I work with clients who can see their patterns and behaviors and know there’s a better way. You wanting to change and grow is the key ingredient.

Sometimes we have experiences that make us feel different, out of place, foreign and even unwelcome. Life can bring challenges, pain, and experiences that do not always make sense to us. It's easy to become trapped in those moments, in need of help. I believe in being someone who will listen with unconditional positive regard, without judgement, to you and your story. I seek to help you see your situation from a different vantage point in order to discover something new about yourself and your world.

My therapeutic style is ideal for clients looking to reconnect with themselves on all levels. Clients should come curious about identifying emotional and psychological blocks, as well as where trauma, tension, anxiety, or depression is stored in the physical body. I specialize in treating people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, illness, death, sexual assault survivors, and bi-polar. I frequently work with women who are trying to stabilize their body and mind after childbirth, trauma, or menapause. All are welcome.

Are you facing challenges in life with motivation, work or relationships? Do persistent thoughts invade your daily life? Do you suffer from the effects of adverse life events? Do you want to someone to help you become better? Sometimes our most pressing problems are understanding and growing through the very challenges to find satisfaction in life. Sometimes the problem is confronting and resolving our past to enable us to clearly define our desired future. My goal is to provide safety and clarity to create "A time and Place to change".

Yes I have availability. No, I'm not in network with insurance. Your out of network benefits may cover. I'm very easy to talk to. Do you have trouble sleeping? Are you overwhelmed? Do you have a sense of doom? Have friends and/or family commented on the amount of alcohol or drugs you can take? If so, you may benefit from seeing me. Since 1996, I have worked extensively with people struggling with Substance Use Disorders, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, and Grief. I also take a secular approach to those who have experienced religious trauma. If you have struggled with any of these issues, I can definitely help.

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.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
