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. Areas of specialized training and practice include working with individuals experiencing an 'unhealthy relationship with food', relationship challenges, Neurodiversity and collaborative family practice (for more information please visit http://www.collaborativedivorcekansascity.net).
I am also trained as a professional Coach, providing personal, career and dispute resolution coaching (Collaborative Neutral Coach/Child Specialist; Divorce 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 have worked in community mental health, corporate, corrections, children's residential, university and private practices. I am currently licensed as a Psychologist in Missouri, am a CASA-trained parent facilitator and professional Coach. I have received training in Internal Family Systems (IFS) work and am a Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist.
