Family Counselor

Jessica Willemsen, MSW, LSCSW, LAC, LCSW, CTS

Clinical Social Worker and Addiction Counselor

6901 Shawnee Mission Pkwy, Suite 219, Overland Park, KS

Though individual therapy is an essential piece in mental health recovery, the addition of family therapy can further the recovery process. Very few of us live as isolated life, remaining unconnected to others--no family, friends, or coworkers. Therefore, helping an individual communicate with their family, and helping the family to not only understand but learn how to help their loved one--can be an important part of the recovery process. Whether it be trauma, addiction, or mental illness such as Bipolar, Depression, or Anxiety, family therapy can help build a healthy support network. We all need supportive people in our lives. Family therapy can help.

Family Counselor

Sherri Jacobs, M.S., LMFT, M.A., ATR

Marriage and Family Therapist, Art Therapist

InterUrban ArtHouse 8001 Conser, Suite 290, Overland Park, KS

There is no such thing as a one person problem. As a marriage and family therapist, I am trained think in "systems" and navigate with families and even co workers in a system how to improve their system by exploring everyone's contribution. Bringing entire families systems into a therapeutic setting can be dynamic, powerful and transformative to issues that might have been lurking around for generations. My background of working in inpatient psychiatric hospitals eventual led me to working with families, as I witnessed thousands of people over the years get better, only to return home to a place where the rest of the family hadn't been offered the same opportunity for therapeutic growth.

Family Counselor

Adam Lynch, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

435 Nichols Rd., Suite 200, Kansas City, KS

Family means so much to God, so it should mean so much to us. Consequently, family dynamics can be quite challenging to work through when issues arise. The struggles that come from families of origin can stifle growth in a marriage and cause a lot of friction in raising children. Not to mention, having children can introduce many new dynamics that consist of anything from their behavior issues to significant emotional distress and social challenges. I can help you navigate through these challenges effectively either with your children individually or within the context of family therapy.

Family Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

10551 Barkley Suite 320, Overland Park , KS

Family problems are best dealt with by not starting with behavior but starting with what's going on in the inside of people and what unspoken motives and needs are going unseen. I work from a warm, empathic standpoint in which I try to enter your shoes and understand your experiences as you do, not as others do. Insight is not the main goal (although that certainly happens), rather formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that really catalyze psychological growth and healing. Benefits include increased: feelings of vitality and realness, hope, self-esteem, emotion regulation, etc.

Family Counselor

Brian Heydon, Ed.S., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

8080 Ward Parkway, Suite 330, Kansas City, KS

I utilize Imago Relationship Therapy, based on the book "Getting the Love You Want" by Harville Hendrix as the primary tool in assisting families. The Imago approach assures that every member of the family is heard, validated, and understood, in the context of their individual experiences of one another. Usually the health of the parental/caretaker relationship with one another sets the tone for the entire family. I assist in clarifying family values, family roles, appropriate responses to one another, and strategies for more healthy communication and understanding. What is almost always exposed is the love that we've misplaced or have taken for granted in our struggles to connect.

Family Counselor

Learn how to connect again, communicate effectively, love abundantly and resolve conflicts within your family through counseling! I look forward to helping your family!

Family Counselor

Kristen Burrus, MS, LMFT, LAC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

11261 Strang Line Rd, Lenexa, KS

I approach therapy from a systems perspective, meaning the whole not the individual. When there is one person in a family with a challenge, the whole family system is affected. I like to have everyone in the house involved in therapy if possible. You are the experts on your life, and each person will have a different perspective. To be helpful, it's important I get all the pieces of the puzzle.

Family Counselor

Andrea Gerry, MS, LMFT, EMDR Trained

Marriage and Family Therapist

8400 West 110th Street, Suite 250, Overland Park, KS

Naturally families are always seeking to solve the problems that face them. However if everyone develops and implements a separate plan there is often chaos instead of calm. There are even times where the solution creates a new problem. In Family Therapy the family joins to collaborate and discover unique solutions together. The time spent in collaboration and discovery creates connection which ultimately helps heal the relationships between family members.
