If you’re seeking help to manage depression or suicidal thoughts, then I might be the right fit. Maybe you’ve used substances and have fallen dangerously close to addiction as a result of your depression. You realize that you want someone who fully believes in you, period. Clients who work best with me have goals that center around growing awareness of their own attitude and mindset, shifting into positive thinking, and daily mindfulness. They may feel plagued by suicidal thoughts, but want to create safety plans that include important people and alternate activities. Ultimately, I want my clients to know and believe in their worth.

I help children, teens, and adults that struggle with anxiety, depression, personality disorders, and ADHD, here at the Anxiety & Depression Clinic of Columbia. I am most helpful when clients show up with a problem to address, and a willingness to be a bit vulnerable. My ideal client desires change, and wants to get "unstuck", even when that means we roll up our sleeves and get some real therapy work done.

A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing. Within my practice I use a holistic, mind-body approach including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) to alleviate the effects of trauma in both children and adults. Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, and tends to plague us all to varying degrees, at one time or another, whether it's the Big-T Trauma of an automobile accident or the loss of a loved one; or the smaller-t trauma a child experiences when encountering emotions that he or she can't yet put into words.

“What is wrong with me? Why can’t I just be normal?” That’s what you’ve thought to yourself countless times. The answer? It’s not you, it’s trauma. Trauma wreaks havoc on our lives, easily causing both depression and anxiety. It doesn’t stop there. It also sets us up to experience major difficulties with functioning in our personal and professional lives. It’s time for you to heal. If you’re ready to learn how to reduce your symptoms and explore the impact of trauma in your current relationships and on your well-being, then you’re in the right place.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 65203, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 65203 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 65203 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 65203

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 65203 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 65203 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 65203 or family therapy in 65203.
