I’m a licensed professional counselor in Kansas and a provisional licensed professional counselor in Missouri. I’m double board-certified and I’m a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional as well as a certified grief counselor. My specialties are treating insomnia, chronic pain, and dissociative disorders. Right now, I’m making myself available to people across Missouri and Kansas who are struggling as the coronavirus is changing how we live. Some people are now socially isolated. Others are scared. Many are dealing with the sudden loss of income or kids whose schools are closed.
I want to help as many people as I can, so I’m going to offer some small video groups. These are groups of up to 4 people in addition to me. They’ll be 90-minute groups offered at the same time and with the same people for four weeks. It’s a chance to interact with others, share concerns and also share support. I will give tips and tools as appropriate (such as for dealing with anxiety).
I’m offering these sessions for free. I’m asking that if you can afford counseling you don’t take advantage of this offer meant to help people who can’t afford it. (I do have a sliding scale that starts at $30 for individual (private) sessions.
I can only work with people who live in Kansas or Missouri because I’m not licensed in other states. And because this is real counseling, I’m going to need you to fill out and submit the paperwork I require prior to our session. This group is for adults age 18 and up.
I don’t have any idea if people will be interested in this. If there is demand, I will add some additional times.
- 9:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Tuesdays, March 24th and 31st and April 7th and 14th
- 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Wednesdays, March 25th and April 1st, 8th, and 15th
- 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. Thursdays, March 26th and April 2nd, 9th, and 16th
To sign up, you will need to fill out these forms and return them to me (Alicia). You may fax them to 816-406-0046 or if you feel comfortable with it, you may scan them as a PDF and send them via email to email@example.com . If you wish to, you can password-protect the PDF file and send that password to me separately by text or email.
After I receive your intake paperwork, I will contact you to arrange a 5-minute meetup by video so that we have a chance to make sure everything is working as it should. I’ll also make sure you understood the agreement and ask if you have any questions about it. After that, I’ll see you at our group time!
