Counseling and Therapy Services

Child Psychologist in Kansas City

Counseling and Therapy

I work directly with children, adolescents, and young adults to assess and evaluate problem areas and provide effective solutions.

I apply a number of perspectives, such as clinical child psychology, child development, and educational psychology, including utilization of the latest research and intervention methods to facilitate positive changes in cognitive, behavioral, and emotional growth.

Through teaching my patients important skills, I help them adjust to home and school life. By offering therapeutic support and counseling where necessary, I can assist each child or adolescent in dealing with and managing their challenges and building on their strengths.

Why Therapy?

Therapeutic and counseling services are provided to children, adolescents, young adults, and parents in order to facilitate positive cognitive, behavioral and emotional growth. The goal of the child therapy I provide in Kansas City is to help people manage stress, understand and manage their emotions, and understand and manage relationships.

Therapy targets specific methods that create a deeper understanding of current situations, feelings, and thinking about how these factors impact overall mood, stress level, and life satisfaction. Specific strategies are developed and ideas for how to handle situations are addressed in therapy. As needed and as appropriate, these strategies are shared with parents, family members, or teachers in order to assist in supporting a child or adolescent as they work on new skills and behaviors. I also take great care to ensure that cultural values are respected and accommodated within the therapeutic relationship.
