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.

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.

Your family may be feeling like it is being turned upside down as your developing young adult struggles to find their place in the world. I work within the family system to re-establish the balance that is necessary for a healthy, growing family and find order within the chaos. Teens and young people may appear to be rebelling; fighting back against all of the families efforts to offer guidance and support. We can work together to turn this energy into a productivity and success in academic, social, and all other aspects of life.

I enjoy working with all my clients, however, I have specific training working with troubled youth. The world is hard to navigate as adults and can be even harder as a young adult, teen, or adolescent. In my experience depression and anxiety are secondary to the trauma caused by unresolved issues. These issues affect both children and adults. This can often express in opposition to rules, defiance, self harming, alcohol and drug use. I can help. I understand what its like to feel misunderstood in a world filled with overwhelming decisions.

Oppositional Defiance Therapists
All children are oppositional from time to time. But their behavior can become incessantly and openly uncooperative such that it stands out relative to other children. Oppositional Defiant Disorder (or sometimes referred to as "ODD") tends to be evidenced by frequent temper tantrums, excessive arguing with adults, the questioning of rules, active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests. You may also see deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people, blaming of others, being touchy or easily annoyed by others, frequent anger and resentment, mean and hateful talking when upset, a spiteful attitude and revenge seeking.

These therapists can help with oppositional defiance in Lees Summit or provide counseling for parents handling an oppositional defiant kid in Lees Summit, oppositional defiant teen or oppositional defiant children in Lees Summit.
