My Approach to Helping

My approach is to help individuals feel. I like to say "to feel is to heal." Often, our inability to connect emotionally with others stems from our early, childhood experiences. These interactions have a direct impact on our current relationships and self-concept. What has worked to this point--what has kept us functioning and even alive--simply may not be working anymore. Together, you and I will examine coping strategies and explore past experiences in hopes of establishing safe, emotional connections with others, bolster resilience, and build a positive sense of self.

More Info About My Practice

Accepting ourselves for who we are in the moment is key to healing and even change. It sounds backwards, right? To change who we are, we must stop trying to change who we are and first accept ourselves. I like to remind myself of therapist Carl Rogers who remarked that "the curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." My relationship with you will be built on acceptance in a judgment-free environment, where you are free to feel and to heal.

My Therapy Focus

I am in private practice with Kansas City Psychotherapy. There, I see clients with a large range of needs such as anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem and self-concept, and anger and am developing a special focus in grief, loss, and bereavement; adults who experienced child abuse; and the process of forgiveness.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

I used to believe in the "light switch effect," the idea that in an instant I should be able to become the person I wanted to be, that it should click. Kicking and screaming, I eventually accepted that change a process--that it takes time. With me, you are not getting someone who has everything figured out, but you are meeting with a trained professional who will be with you, as you explore and wade through your past and present. My areas of focus are important to me because they are personal to me.
