My Approach to Helping
I'm a Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist (LCP) in the state of Kansas, and an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider (ADHD-CCSP). I utilize a strengths-based approach incorporating principles from solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and positive psychotherapy. I have training and experience working with adolescents and adults in community mental health centers, juvenile corrections, and inpatient psychiatric facilities. I work primarily with adolescents, families, and adults dealing with depression, anxiety, oppositional behavior, ADHD, self-esteem, and career planning. I also offer coaching for parents of children with ADHD and executive functioning deficits, along with career coaching for youth and adults exploring career possibilities or making career changes. I have specific training in mindfulness, ARC framework, anger control training, Functional Family Therapy, and career assessment, and is currently pursing a certification from Mizzou as a Youth Development Specialist.
