I was trained with a cognitive-behavioral therapy perspective, yet my practice draws on a variety of evidence-based therapies. The most important priority for me is to tailor treatment to your particular needs, strengths, and goals.
Why am I feeling this way? Why do I keep doing this?
Why is this happening?
With a supportive and collaborative approach, my job is to help you find answers to why things are happening and to better understand the causes of your distress. Armed with better understanding and insight, I will guide your discovery of tools and strategies to help you resolve problems and overcome the obstacles to your personal growth.
I want you to be a good consumer and find the right help for you. Please feel free to call me and ask any questions you may have before scheduling an initial visit.
A bit more about me
I am a psychologist located in Overland Park, KS, and have been in private practice for 26 years. Having grown up in Omaha, NE, I completed my undergraduate degree at Indiana University. I then landed in Iowa City, Iowa for my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology. I am also a Clinical Adjunct Professor with the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Medicine, teaching cognitive behavioral therapy to psychiatry residents.
I am married to Kelly, my wife of 29 years and have a son Zach, 25 and a daughter Lindsay, 23. I love spending time with family and friends and also enjoy travel, pickleball, and cheeseburgers.
