I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Kansas, and have been in private practice in Lawrence for the past 17 years. Prior to that, I worked at the Leavenworth, KS VA Medical Center for 5 years.
I provide individual and couples counseling to adults, and specialize in providing treatment for anxiety disorders such as panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety disorder, and generalized anxiety disorder. I also provide treatment for depression, difficult life transitions, and grief and bereavement, and postpartum depression. I help couples and individuals cope with relationship breakups and divorces, heal from infidelity, and learn how to navigate the rocky terrain of blended families. I also enjoy teaching clients about mindfulness meditation, and have studied the work of Jon Kabat-Zinn, PhD (father of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) since the early 1990s.
I encourage you to take a look at my site in order to learn a little bit about my practice. Finding a psychotherapist you are comfortable with, and who will understand and help you with your issues can be difficult and stressful…..and a website can provide only so much information. I am not a “yes….uh huh….um hmm….” sort of therapist. Instead, I focus on actively helping my clients find solutions to their problems.
Please feel free to call or email me for further information as you go about making this important decision. I always take time to chat with prospective clients, and welcome any and all questions.
