Tish Kovac, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

7211 NW 83rd St Ste 150-A, Kansas City, Missouri

We've all been wounded by others because "hurt people hurt people." Sometimes it can be a huge challenge to find someone who is healing in your life, not another source of further hurt and wounding. As much as our friends may have good intentions to help us, even they can wound us by their not taking the time to really understand from our perspective, jumping to advice giving, or minimizing our experience. My focus is to provide the space you need to explore and work through the areas of your life that are causing you distress, leading to the healing you desire.

Stephen Brannen, PhD, LCSW, CCDP-D

Diplomate in Clinical Social Work/Dual Disorders

6301 Rockhill Road, Suite 100B, Kansas City , Missouri

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.

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Kansas City, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it.

If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Kansas City may have flexibility or sliding scales
