Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

In 66112 - Nearby to Paola.

I am not a certified addiction counselor, however, I believe therapy, along with support from out-patient services, such as AA, or NA, will help get you to the depth of the emotion that took you to this point in the first place. Many addictions are driven by the core emotion of shame. Deep shame is not guilt but a sense that "I don't deserve to be here on this planet." Shame usually starts very early in life, often unintended by our caregivers, but never the less, it can lead to destructive behaviors. I am a certified Heart Centered Hypnotherapist, which can help find the root of the shame, change the conclusion, and find healing.

Addiction is oftentimes the result of an underlying issue. In counseling sessions, I encourage clients suffering from addiction to pinpoint the triggers that cause the addictive behaviors. We also analyze the starting point of the behavior and the emotions associated with this form of acting-out. This process may include Narrative Therapy and homework. Each client is encouraged to find his or her own path to healing by uncovering emotions and circumstances from the past. Faith in God is a major factor in the healing from addition process.

Clinical Social Worker and Addiction Counselor

In 66202 - Nearby to Paola.

It can feel like there's no way out, when you are trapped in the grips of a chemical addiction. Whether it's alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs such as cocaine/crack, methamphetamines, heroin, etc, I can help. I hold a license in addiction counseling in the state of Kansas, and have extensive experience working with women in various stages of recovery. Individual therapy is essential in making sobriety stick and experiencing a long-lasting recovery. EMDR can be an essential tool in desensitizing urges and strengthening recovery skills. Talk therapy is also valuable in tailoring each client's recovery to meet their specific needs--there is no one-size-fits-all recovery model.

Addiction Counselor

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66047 - Nearby to Paola.

When it comes to addiction, my job is not to help you quit. My job is to help you have the option of whether or not you'd like to quit or continue to use. If you have tried sobriety in the past with some success but not been able to sustain it or if it seems too tall a mountain to try to climb; a caring, well educated professional can go a long way in helping you maintain a lifestyle of your choice. I do this by fortifying your internal desire for freedom and helping you build a network of support that the addiction often robs people of. I do this work with and empathic understanding of the courage it takes on your behalf to face the difficulty of sober living.
