Psychologist in Kansas City, MO
Adolescence (and young adulthood) is a challenging time. Many of my clients feel stuck between pressure from peers, family members, and anxiety about becoming an adult. The internet has changed adolescence--for better and for worse. There are more opportunities to find people like you and to learn, but many also struggle with social comparison, bullying, low self-esteem. Therapy can be the safe space adolescents need to get support outside of friends and family.
If you are new to the social justice scene and need a dedicated space to discuss your own White privilege and feelings of fragility, therapy is the perfect place to learn and grow. I work with other White folks to reflect on their culture, thought patterns, and behaviors that contribute to racism and White supremacy. I will suggest readings, activities, and discussions that help you process personal reactions while centering leadership and calls to action by BIPOC leaders.
Women juggle so many roles and expectations. Whether you feel the pressures of parenting, sexism in the workplace, lessons absorbed through the patriarchy, or learning how to have a truly egalitarian relationship, counseling can help! I have over 10 years of experience and use a feminist approach with all of my clients. Get started today and schedule an online appointment!
