Group Counseling in Kansas City


I believe that self-compassion, emotional intelligence, and mindful presence are essential components of any healthy individual.  One of the best ways to develop these skills is through group therapy.  Counseling Groups are open to individuals from all walks of life including any race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, or sexual orientation.  Together, we focus on a variety of life issues, including strengthening relationships, managing break-ups or divorce, enhancing intimacy and sex life, or processing challenges related to one’s sexual or gender identity (including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, or Questioning (LGBTQ).  We also address a wide range of additional concerns such as shyness, communication issues, self-worth, shame, anxiety, depression, sexual trauma or abuse, sex addiction, drug and alcohol addiction, body image, .

There are less Kansas City therapists, counselors, social workers, and psychologists these days who also conduct group therapy.  Group counseling is an excellent way to enhance individual therapy, as well as address the challenges faced by individuals dealing with anxiety, depression, anger management, grief or loss, life transition, and other chronic mental health problems.  My approach is collaborative and open-minded when it comes to determining what type of therapeutic goals are best for you.  We begin by enhancing communication skills, getting in touch with underlying feelings, and working through resentment or trust issues that may have led to unhealthy behavioral patterns.

Adolescent General Mental Health Group Counseling

Individuals learn new coping skills, how to manage chronic problems such as depression, anxiety, mood swings, or relationship issues, and how to avoid problematic experiences with alcohol, tobacco, or drugs.  Each individual will engage in a candid discussion about their home life, challenges at school, and difficulty in relating with parents, family members, or authority figures.  This could include addressing issues regarding oppositional defiance, adjustment disorder (such as divorce or loss), and dealing with past trauma.


The cost for each 2-hour weekly session is $50/session.  A 4-week minimum pre-payment for Group Therapy and Education is required and enrollment is ongoing until cancellation.  Refunds will not be issued for days missed once the group has begun nor will missed days be credited for future sessions.  Clients can cancel their enrollment with 2-weeks advance notice prior to the beginning of the following month’s first session..
