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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

12400 W 62nd Terrace, Suite A, Shawnee, Kansas 66216 | 9137875444

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.

Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

1225 N. 78th St., Suite A, KANSAS CITY, Kansas 66112 | 913-515-6919

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.

7923 Santa Fe Dr, Overland Park , Kansas 66204 | 913-294-7769

Addiction is largely about emotional regulation (fancy words for feeling balanced on the inside). We grow in regulation through relationship. Really. The brain actually grows new paths and ways of operating when in an attuned, empathic relationship with another. I work from a warm, empathic standpoint where 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), nor are tools for abstinence (also a part though) rather, formative moments of feeling tuned into, deeply understood and emotionally held are the goal. These offer new emotional experiences that catalyze psychological growth and healing.

I have 15 + years working with individuals with many types of addictions in inpatient and outpatient treatment settings. As an addiction specialist (CRAADC), (CCDP-D) and (SAP for DOT), I currently provide treatment for individuals with drug or alcohol abuse in an outpatient setting. I also offer support and assistance within the family dynamic to assist them with understanding the dynamics of addiction, co-dependency, and boundaries.

I also provide DUI evaluations and DOT SAP evaluations.
