The modalities I draw from include CBT, ACT, DBT , and a person centered therapy.
I can provide a safe space to talk through your big life transitions and stressful situations.

Have you experienced trauma and are unsure how to move forward past difficult parts in your life? We can work together to figure out those triggers and move forward healing from those traumatic events. Together, we can find strategies that work best for you in therapy that you can carry with you in everyday life. Whether that be working on building skills or talking through difficult situations.

I'm eclectic and collaborative, weaving Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in with techniques from DBT and other person-centered and strengths/solutions-focused perspectives.
I possess the magic, quick-fix for all of your problems... just kidding. As a lifetime therapy participant myself, I know this path is not always short, shiny, or easy, but my job is to walk it with you & see you through it when you are ready. My work focuses around challenges of life: self-esteem, compassion and regulation, relationship/social issues, life transitions, trauma, mood disorders, grief, issues specific to women and adolescent/student athletes, perinatal mental health, and more. I am an LGBTQI+ ally, and eager to work with humans of all backgrounds, orientations, preferences, identities, cultures, & ethnicities.

I work with adults and teens age 14+ on problems ranging from getting over a breakup to overcoming a lifetime of trauma. I use humor and compassion alongside technique and knowledge to help clients calm their thoughts, develop meaningful connections with others, and resolve even long-standing problems. I use concepts from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy ( DBT ), solution-focused therapy, and psychodynamic techniques to identify and challenge damaging thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors, ultimately helping clients create a story of themselves that is authentic and empowering.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, down, or anxious and don't know what to do or where to go? Do you feel very alone and nobody else understands or has experienced what you have/or are experiencing? Are you having trouble sleeping due to looping thoughts running through your mind? Have all your old ways of coping stopped working? We all need support and guidance along our journey. Sometimes we need more than what our family and friends can provide. When circumstances happen making life more difficult, you may need some extra help. Together, you and I can find the right path and tools to get you back to feeling more like yourself.

Coming to counseling is often not an easy decision to make, and I commend you for taking the first step and researching your options. In order for the process to be as beneficial as possible, it is important that you find someone that you can trust and open up to. Counseling often involves discussing tough topics and areas in your life that you are struggling with, so an empathetic and understanding counselor is important.

As a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri and Kansas, I use various therapeutic modalities to respectfully connect with children, adolescents and adults based on the needs of each individual. I completed EMDR training to help individuals work through traumatic events and target negative thinking. After learning about the impact of trauma on the brain, my interest in neuroscience led me to complete a concentrated training program in Neurofeedback to explore the benefits of its non-invasive, self-healing power to balance dysregulation in the brain.

Life gets tough sometimes and everyone needs a little help. Sometimes that help comes from friends or family, but other times that help can come from a professional. Reaching out to a counselor is tough but frequently can be the first step towards improvement in life. It is important to find a counselor with whom you feel comfortable enough to do the tough work and talk about the hard issues. I enjoy learning whether that is from formal training and classwork or from the people I work with. I consider therapy a collaborative experience where we learn from each other.

Many people with anxiety attempt to control their thoughts, avoid, or perform behaviors to prevent unease or a negative outcome, only for worry to return. This feels intuitive, but actually prolongs distress long-term by reinforcing the ideas of intolerance and that there is something to fear. It's human nature to experience some discomfort. With Exposure Therapy, you can gradually minimize fears with support and thrive *in spite of* discomforts the brain, body, & life send your way. Let's replace the confinements of certainty with the freedom of uncertainty.

What type of Lees Summit 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Lees Summit?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
