I'm a licensed professional counselor in Kansas City, Missouri with 6 years of clinical experience in a variety of settings, and I started my private practice in 2019 to offer specialized help with PTSD, anxiety disorders, and ADHD management.
Hi, I’m Nate. I'm a Certified EMDR Therapist, which means I specialize in treating PTSD and trauma-induced symptoms through use of a fascinating therapy called EMDR, a tool I’ve used in a variety of settings (including telehealth) with clients from diverse backgrounds to heal disturbing thoughts, images, and sensations. My general approach could be considered 'eclectic' meaning I use strategies from a variety of therapy approaches which also include CBT, DBT, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy for issues such as panic attacks, obsessive guilt, social anxiety, ADHD management, and others. Perhaps the most important component of any therapy is the working relationship between therapist and client – not merely a conversation, but a powerful time of unconditional acceptance from your therapist, building shared and relevant goals, allowing honest inquiry, and exploring new perspectives. I look forward to standing with you as a clinical ally for healing and growth.
