About My Practice
As a licensed psychologist in private practice I offer individual, couples, and family counseling services in the 'midtown' Kansas City area. I currently work as an independent practitioner within a small group setting.  Areas of specialized training and practice include working with individuals experiencing an 'unhealthy relationship with food' and collaborative family practice (for more information please visit  http://www.colaborativedivorcekansascity.net).
I am also trained as a professional Coach, providing personal, career and dispute resolution coaching (Collaborative Neutral Coach), and work with local law firms, as requested, offering consultation services around cases involving questions of a behavioral or psychological nature.
Coming from a design background and corporate experience, I took myself back through school to obtain my MA degree in Psychology and Doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City.  I am currently licensed as a Psychologist in Missouri, am a CASA-trained parent facilitator and professional Coach, and have received training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) work.
