I am a Licensed Psychologist who currently practices in Lenexa, KS. I grew up in Lenexa and am thrilled to be able to provide services to this wonderful and thriving community. I graduated from Texas Christian University (GO HORNED FROGS!) in 2000 and received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology in 2006. I have been licensed as a Psychologist since 2007 and have experience with both outpatient and inpatient mental health services. I am married and have two wonderful children. My hobbies include recreational activities, socializing with friends, and being with family. I enjoy cheering on my sports teams (GO CHIEFS!), and feel it is of paramount importance to keep a healthy balance between physical wellness and emotional well-being. If you are looking for a clinician who understands the work-life balancing act, I would be a great resource.
My passion is connecting with and helping others. I pride myself on being a genuine person and am typically able to build a quick rapport with clients. I feel humbled when being invited to participate in and be witness to others' life journeys. Every individual is unique and presents a different set of strengths and growth areas. I will provide a collaborative approach to tackling life's issues while increasing your ability to see your gifts, accept yourself, and build resilience. I am also well-versed in the emerging field of nutritional psychology and the gut-brain axis. I would be happy to discuss how nutrition plays a role in your overall wellness and mental health.
