ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! I am a therapist with Jordan Psychological Center in Overland Park and am currently accepting new clients with little wait time! Mental health is my greatest passion, and I feel so fortunate to be able to serve the mental health needs of this community. I work with people of all ages, including those who struggle with ADHD, Bipolar, Depression, Anxiety, and more. Whatever you are going through in your life, we can go through it together. I use CBT and a Person-Centered approach to my sessions, helping you develop coping skills and offering you kindness and empathy always. Life is hard, and you deserve someone who is unbiased, nonjudgmental, and cares for you. I hope that you will give me the chance to be that for you as you process the complexities in your life.

Melanie Bettes

Licensed Professional Counselor, LCPC, LPC, Coach
Therapy should be as unique as you are. As a therapist, I try to make sure you feel as comfortable as you need to feel in order to discuss the difficult stuff. I draw from my previous career, my education, and my own lived experience in order to make a connection with you, and help you be comfortable. I love to just have a conversation with my clients, getting to know who they are and how their challenges affect them, and subsequently, how to best approach each challenge to address it most effectively.

Paul W Anderson, PhD

Psychologist, Licensed counseling psychologist, Licensed Addictions counselor
I enjoy doing counseling. Not only have I been in private practice as a licensed doctoral psychologist for many years, but I also understand the therapy process from having used counseling for myself. <br>I meet my clients with compassion as well as a skilled and trained intellect focused on helping you find lasting solutions quickly. I provide a safe and understanding space free of judgement. <br>I won't waste your time or money, but I also want to take the time in the first sessions to get to know you and your situation well enough so that when we begin to apply solutions, they are strategic, effective and bring you lasting relief from your pain and concerns.

I am drawn to raw unfiltered courage. Going to therapy a brave choice and it takes tenacity and grit to feel differently and make changes in our lives. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we become the author who writes the brave new ending. Together we will examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding you back identify the new choices and practices that will move you toward more authentic and wholehearted living. Rarely is that decision a whim or an impulse, and most likely you've been thinking about this for a while. Now here you are; being curious and maybe nervous and scared at the same time. In my opinion - that is bravery and brave things are rarely comfortable, but always worth trying. Whether you are looking to make a shift in your relationships, provide help and guidance for your children, or you have reached a point in your own life where you no longer want to "figure it out alone"- you have come to a good place to get moving. It can get better. We all struggle at times - with anxiety, depression, and stress - along with the circumstances in our lives that contribute to these feelings. The "feelings" themselves are never wrong. Where we get into trouble (and can feel stuck in them) is when we can't make sense of it all and isolation creeps in. You're not in this alone.

Carmalyn Lashley

Marriage and Family Therapist, LMFT
Do you feel seen? Do you feel heard? Do you feel you matter? Those are the ingredients that build connection. And connection is vitally important for our happiness. However, so often today that's exactly what we find is missing. And life can hand us things we don't know how to deal with. I'd love to work with you to help you build strategies that build connection between yourself and those you care about. I’m deeply moved by the work people do for repair and healing. Share your story with me. I will listen without judgment and with compassion for your struggle.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, MSW, LSCSW
Everyone at times needs some support or coaching on their life journey. I'd be happy to sit down with you or talk on the phone and compassionately listen to your story and lend some hope and encouragement. I view "problems" as opportunities to work on and overcome the 'threats' within and around us and to open up our lives to new levels of growth.
