I am a Kansas native and have been in the helping professions for the last 5 years, and am currently pursuing licensure as an LCP (Licensed Clinical Psychologist).
Starting therapy can be a somewhat intimidating first step in improving your mental health, which is why I strive to create a welcoming and open environment for my clients. I have been passionate about mental health and the study of psychology since early in my academic career, and I thoroughly enjoy providing support and healing for people of all walks of life.
Every individual has their own unique story and background, which is something that I value and respect with each of my clients. I believe in cultivating a healthy and strong therapeutic relationship built upon empathy and trust; it is an essential part of the healing process.
I am an LGBTQ+ affirming therapist.
I am happy to work with adults, young adults, and adolescents. My specific focus is on clients who desire help in working on the following issues, among others:
I enjoy working with clients to maximize their own wellness and overall well-being; which I conceptualize as embodying prolonged happiness and satisfaction in different areas of life.
As I have developed and honed my clinical skills as a therapist, I have come to value an integrative and holistic approach to therapy. I believe this provides the best care for my clients, and enables us to maintain a collaborative relationship that is essential for healing and rapport.
My initial therapeutic approach draws upon a variety of techniques and interventions commonly used in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which helps us to understand and improve upon our core beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors.
I currently accept Ambetter and all Kansas Medicaid plans, including:
For self-pay clients and clients who have other health insurance and would like to schedule on a self-pay basis, my self-pay rate is $150 per session. I also offer a sliding-scale session fee to a limited number of clients who may be in the midst of financial hardship.
