Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

1201 NW Briarcliff Parkway, Suite 200, Kansas City, Missouri 64116 | 816-699-2047

As a couple therapist I will work to provide you an understanding of what is going on in your relationship that is causing distress. I have extensive training in the Gottman Method and will also draw upon my knowledge of Dr. Sue Johnson's work in Emotion Focused Therapy. If you are in distress we need to work to help you find ways to communicate your needs to one another and to be heard by your partner. There are practical tools that I can give you so that you can learn ways to communicate and connect. Couples utilizing these methods commonly find that they notice some immediate relief and are able to begin to communicate in a way that each partner feels heard and understood.

In working with couples, I utilize a transactional approach, augmented with humanistic cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. My experience has taught me that people come to couples counseling because of trust issues, sexual dysfunction, and a general feeling of giving up. My practice focuses on assisting the couple in rebuilding their relationship by developing positive communication and reactivating their relation skills.

It’s important to understand how we unknowingly bring our past into our current relationships. Learn habits to communicate better, argue in a healthy manner, resolve conflict, productively expression emotions, share your needs/wants clearly, work through unresolved issues, and negotiate change in your relationship. Also examine how to rekindle intimacy while understanding and embracing your partner’s flaws.

Licensed Professional Counselor

8575 West 110th Street, Suite 225, Overland Park, Kansas 66210 | 4846780552

When doing couples/marriage therapy, I utilize an approach that assists individuals in recognizing and resolving conflicts to improve their relationships. Through marital/couples counseling, each couple will sit and discuss their thought and feelings. I utilize an approach that is unique to each couple. It can take some time, but as couples work through the process, they can develop techniques to resolve their issues and develop a stronger relationship and grow with each other.

Couples, whether married or pre-marital, will benefit from developing a more secure bond, leading to increased connection and intimacy. Start your relationship off right by understanding how the ways you've learned to deal with distress are interfering with the relationship you desire. Turn the conflict into opportunities to grow closer to each other that build a lifetime of secure attachment and intimacy.

Relationships account for such a large amount of our time, energy and emotions. I believe they also reflect so much of how we see God and how He works in and through us. I am convinced you can experience a fruitful and joyful relationship no matter how many challenges you face or burdens you feel from the past. This can happen in the context of a relationship where openness and forgiveness are working hand in hand. I really enjoy working with couples and have found a lot of success in helping in the process of healing and redeeming relationships and marriages.
