You will name your goals and desires for counseling. You will receive a nonjudgmental approach, a time to reflect on your past and present decisions, looking at the outcomes, looking at cycles that may be destructive or promotive and how actions can deter, limit or achieve your goals. If there is anxiety or depression, we will determine the level it is affecting you, then proceed to choose ways to help you to bring it under control.

Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker

Through therapy you can uncover the confidence that's hidden inside you! It may be covered up with layers of people-pleasing, guilt, anxiety, depression, guilt or fear. I help you discover your hidden truth so that you can develop healthy relationships and create positive changes in your life. Counseling is often necessary to uncover the hidden hurts, the unmet needs, and the repressed or unexpressed emotions, which are preventing us from getting to the truth, which will set us free. In many instances, there can be no true healing and spiritual growth until we are released from painful memories and unhealthy patterns, which now interfere with our present behavior and attitude.

Psychotherapist

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Paola

I utilize a contemporary self psychological psychoanalytic approach to working with individuals. This means I work with you to understand and heal the roots of issues and problems. I do not seek to dissect people and point out all that's wrong with them (that's the old model that says insight alone is what cures). I come from a current stand point that uses empathy to see people in light of their whole self and story and developmental psychology to respond to people in ways that, along with giving insight, helps put them back to together (instead of pulling them apart).

Psychotherapist

Sara Minges, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Playful Awareness was created to give clients a fresh perspective on mental health and to help them create a "life worth living." Psychotherapy involves many different specialties, however the most important factor in achieving positive outcomes is the therapeutic alliance between the therapist and client. If a client does not believe trust has been established, they will be less likely to open up and honestly address their issues. My approach welcomes clients to openly share what is bothering them and supports teamwork in coming up with a solution that will best meet the client's needs.

Psychotherapist

Stephen Brannen, PhD, LCSW, CCDP-D

Diplomate in Clinical Social Work/Dual Disorders

Within driving distance of Paola

My approach to counseling is what I describe as humanistic, cognitive behavioral therapy. I respect the right of each individual to make choices and encourage my clients to make the right choices and decisions for them. I believe in the bio-psychosocial model of assisting clients, and thus work with each in developing an understanding of their unique situation from this perspective. I am very comfortable in engaging with other providers such as primary care physicians in maximizing the benefits provided to my clients.
