ABOUT CHANEL

I know that reaching out for help can be one of the hardest things any of us do. If you are suffering from the lasting effects of trauma and have been reluctant to seek therapy, I'm here to hold space for you. Our sessions will be collaborative, strategic, and goal-focused. Above all, they will be respectful of your path. We will identify what's not working in your life and allow time to step back, reflect, and perhaps shift your approach. I have helped those with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, feeling stuck, feeling unfulfilled, unmotivated, lack self-confidence, difficulty coping with major life changes, and/or trauma.

 

I take a cognitive-behavioral approach to help clients. Within that framework, I've trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), traditional CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) for a variety of problems, DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), mindfulness-based treatments, and trauma-focused treatments.

Anxiety, stress, and depression can affect our day-to-day.  I can help clients incorporate self-care and mindfulness for a more fulfilling and balanced life, and help them learn to be guided by their strengths versus their perceived weaknesses or past.

I hope that with a combination of authenticity, humor, and compassion, I can assist you in your work to heal, change, and grow through life's ups and downs. If you're looking for symptom relief and living a life that comes from the best in you, I encourage you to reach out and begin this journey together.


In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading, hiking, and tinkering with my saltwater aquariums.

FEES & PAYMENT OPTIONS

RATES

Please call for rates: 816.396.6002

FEE FOR SERVICE

Fee-for-service therapy has the highest level of security and confidentiality, as only a judge may request my client records via a subpoena. Insurance companies are not involved, thus your mental health diagnosis will not become a part of your medical record and stays only between you and me. This choice protects you from acquiring a pre-existing behavioral health condition on your medical record.

INSURANCE

I am currently cash pay only; however, I am willing to negotiate fees. 

PAYMENT

I accept cash, checks and credit cards. Payment must be made at the time of service. 

CANCELLATION POLICY

Because the appointment time is reserved for you, if you must cancel your appointment, it is important for you to do so at least 24 hours prior to the appointment time. Late cancellations are subject to the full fee of the session.
