Individual, Family, and Couples
Therapy is how I spend the majority of my day. I work with individuals, families, and couples in a variety of situations. ACT and CBT are my preferred treatment modalities, but I approach every patient from a holistic perspective. This generally includes looking at diet/nutrition, activity level, medications, and over-the counter use of vitamins or supplements.
Career, Relationships, Personal Goals
A more goal-oriented approach, life-coaching looks less like focusing on emotions and more like examining productive vs. non-productive behaviors. It is a short-term and solution-focused strategy for making profound changes in a limited amount of time.
Stress, Burnout, Self-Care
Next to my love for counseling patients is my passion for educating professionals on the topics of youth suicide and stress, burnout, and self-care. I've presented throughout the Midwest region at hospitals, schools, professional training venues, the American Counseling Association of Missouri, Kansas Counselors Association, and The Suicide Prevention Conference.
Critical incident response
Groups, Individuals, Companies, and Schools
When traumatic events occur, having a therapist on-site helps people process how they feel about the situation and return to normal as quickly as possible. I have a variety of experience in critical incident response including sessions at companies, schools, and law-enforcement departments.
Lift Weights, Stretch, or Walk for session
Combine your physical health and mental health needs by engaging in active therapy. Sessions can include light walking, sitting outdoors, lifting weights, or simply stretching. This type of therapy is great for teens and those who prefer side-by-side interaction instead of face-to-face.
Interns and Clinical Licensure Candidates
Those pursuing a master's degree in counseling or clinical licensure are welcome to consider me for their supervision. I love to see new therapists grow their skills and combine them with their education to change the lives of their patients. I am currently approved to supervise provisionally licensed counselors in Missouri and/or Kansas.
