Interns can be a terrific way to seek a more affordable therapy. They are often top notch in their care because they are so immersed in studying to be a mental health worker that they are primed with knowledge, as well they have at least three people watching over their work (a clinical supervisor, a professorial supervisor and a supervision class in which they are in a group supervision setting). Both Kristin and Elise are currently in training at Mid-America Nazarene University. You can schedule with them directly, their contact info is below.
I believe creating a supportive and safe therapeutic relationship is the introduction to pursuing mental health and well being. Relationships cause brokenness and pain, but they are also the source of healing. My goal is to form a trusting relationship where you feel heard, valued and validated. As we journey together, you will gain insights into your life. You will begin to explore how your past is connected to and currently impacts your present. It is through exploration and a strong therapeutic relationship that you can begin to embrace and work with the life you've been given. I am honored and excited to walk through this adventure with you. My education includes a B.S. in Accounting from Kansas State University and a M.A. in Counseling from MidAmerica Nazarene University, with a projected graduation date in May 2017.
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.
