Who We Are
I am a licensed clinical professional counselor in Overland Park, KS with an MA in counseling. I have taught as an adjunct professor in the psychology department at Mid-America Nazarene University, presented nationally on attachment and psychotherapy and authored several publications on spiritual formation. Currently, I am working on my certification in psychoanalysis at The Brookhaven Institute for Psychoanalysis And Contemporary Theology.
Interns can be a terrific way to seek a more affordable therapy. They are top notch in their care because they are so immersed in studying to be a mental health worker that they are primed with knowledge and they have at least three people watching over their work (a clinical supervisor (that would be Aaron in this case), a professor supervisor and a supervision class in which they are in a group supervision setting). All of which means that you get at least three minds thinking about you and caring for you. Elise and Kurt are currently in training at Mid-America Nazarene University. You can schedule with them directly through using their listed emails or through the 'Contact' page.

We all live our lives in relationship with others and our environment. These relationships are the building blocks of our lives, and therefore our sense of self. We are molded by the ways in which we relate to our friends, family, community, and culture. I hope to create and maintain an environment of safety and acceptance where the impact of these relationships can be identified and explored in a way that brings personal insight and healing. My education includes a B.S. in Intercultural Communication, a certificate in Conflict and Dispute Resolution from Missouri State University and a M.A. in Counseling from MidAmerica Nazarene University, with a projected graduation date of May 2018.
Throughout life we, as complex individuals, have the potential to go through many difficult and unique situations that are specific to our own experiences, and it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and isolated during these times. My desire is to walk through these situations alongside you through positive relationship building as well as empowering you in your own life. I received a B.A. in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and an M.A. in Counseling with an emphasis in Marriage, Couples, and Family Therapy from MidAmerica Nazarene University with a projected completion date of May 2019
