I like people.

I’m a counselor committed to helping couples and individuals discover and become the most authentic version of themselves. My work with couples is focused on identifying barriers to connection and equipping them with the tools they need to overcome them. My work with individuals combines a wide variety of techniques drawn from therapeutic traditions like CBT, narrative therapy, polyvagal theory, and mindfulness to help people come home to themselves. One of my passions is helping people learn and grow. I’ve got a podcast on relationships called Super Together, which you can subscribe to at I’ve also created some e-classes for couples which you can purchase at If you’d like to schedule an appointment, please feel free to request one here. If you have a question I can answer, please feel free to contact me using the info at the top of the page. I hope to connect with you soon! AVAILABILITY UPDATE April 2021: If you need to meet with me at my Leawood office, there is currently a short wait. If you're able to meet at my Westport office (even in the short term), my scheduler can usually find a spot within one week.
