*** Leawood location is available, including evenings and Saturdays. The Blue Springs office is full *** Are you depressed? Feel unable to get out of bed, paralyzed by fear or overwhelming heaviness? Do you wonder what happened to that happy couple you used to be? Do you worry about your children's behavior? Luckily, you aren't alone. You don't have to solve your problems by yourself. Get help in a safe environment where you can explore your feelings and devise a strategy to turn things around. Change happens when you actually do things differently.
I help children, adolescents, and adults in a relaxed atmosphere. I have expertise in relationships, depression, and anxiety. I treat bipolar disorder, panic, abuse, workplace issues, hoarding, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Consultation with teachers and schools. I have an innate ability to connect with children and teenagers, helping behavior problems, attention deficit, and learning disabilities!
I use cognitive behavioral therapy techniques, proven as the most effective therapy. This increases positive, realistic thinking while reducing negative, fear-based thoughts. Psychiatrist available for medication evaluations, at Blue Springs Office. Saturday appointments available at Leawood location. All major insurances accepted. FREE email consultation. Describe your situation, I'll make recommendations.
