 About My Practice

As a licensed psychologist in private practice I offer individual, couples, and family counseling services in the 'midtown' Kansas City area. I currently work as an independent practitioner within a small group setting. Areas of specialized training and practice include working with individuals experiencing an 'unhealthy relationship with food' and collaborative family practice (for more information please visit http://www.collaborativedivorcekansascity.net).

I am also trained as a professional Coach, providing personal, career and dispute resolution coaching (Collaborative Neutral Coach/Child Specialist), and work with local law firms, as requested, offering consultation services around cases involving questions of a behavioral or psychological nature.

Coming from a design background and corporate experience, I took myself back through school to obtain my MA degree in Psychology and Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City. I have worked in community mental health, corporate, corrections, children's residential, university and private practices. I am currently licensed as a Psychologist in Missouri, am a CASA-trained parent facilitator and professional Coach, and have received training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) work.

I really enjoy taking advantage of opportunities to learn and to share information with others. A sample of my presentation topics include:

    Raising Resilient Children

    Preventing School Bullying and Violence

    Effective Anger Management for Youth
