Therapy Services in Kansas City, Missouri

I provide psychotherapy services in Kansas City, Missouri, helping my clients to create positive change in their lives. I work to foster this investment in yourself through research based therapy and counseling techniques.


Investing in yourself and therapy is a commitment. I do offer two sliding fee spots on my caseload based on income. If those spaces are full I do offer referrals to lower fee services. If you feel hesitant about treatment, call for a consult and see if together we can find a fit for you to begin where you are at.

Individual therapy

Individual therapy, also known as psychotherapy or talk therapy, is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client which aims to facilitate change and improve the quality of life for the individual. My approach is eclectic in nature and I use a variety of resources, pulling from attachment theory and family systems to cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, with the intent to best serve my client’s individual needs. Individual therapy sessions usually occur as a 45 minute weekly commitment. Similarly to efforts to improve our physical health, noteworthy impact of sessions is directly related to frequency.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is a powerful tool in situations of recurring marital conflicts, or ongoing situations affecting individuals and family members in the home.

Emotional-focused therapy for couples focuses on addressing on negative communication patterns and exploring the attachment dynamics within the couple. I have worked extensively with couples experiencing medical trauma related to loss, illness, or infertility, as well as on-going communication difficulties and infidelity. I often pull from research addressing shame in couples, as well as exploring ways to rebuild connection and attachment with each other.

Adolescents Counseling

Adolescent therapy addresses issues that an adolescent is having in the home, with the family or at school. I use a variety of interventions from talk therapy, sand tray, and family therapy in order to increase the connection in the home. I have completed a certification program in play therapy from MidAmerica Nazarene University especially tailored to working with children and adolescent. For further information, regarding the use of therapy for adolescents see the Association for Play Therapy.

Family Therapy

Family Therapy is the most successful approach in the treatment of family conflicts–the therapy process may involve all family members or those essential to addressing the problem. Naturally, the family system influences a child’s behavior and addressing issues as a unit is essential to benefitting children. Family Therapy is also helpful for adult children and their parents and family members to work through life transition, changing family needs and roles.

Depression & Anxiety Counseling

“Depression and anxiety are two of the body’s first reactions to stockpiles of hurt.  Of course, there are organic and biochemical reasons we experience depression and debilitating anxiety--causes over which we have no control--but unrecognized pain and unprocessed hurt can also lead there.” -- Brené Brown

If you experience depression and anxiety, admitting that you are struggling takes tremendous courage. It can be overwhelming to start to address the feelings of hopelessness that are impacting you. Talk Therapy (i.e. psychotherapy) is one of the recommended modalities that specifically helps with depression, anxiety and the unresolved issues that impact you life.

In our Kansas City, Missouri office, I provide therapy services to assist you in learning ways to manage your emotions and gain insight on how your personal history impacts your mood. Furthermore, I take a holistic approach to treatment exploring all the options to best suit your needs. In your therapy process we collaborate together to explore tools and resources that help you work with your anxiety and depression in a new way.
