About Me

I am a graduate of Regent University with a Masters in Counseling and a Certified Life Coach with the American Association Christian Coaches (AACC). I am licensed in the states of Kansas and Missouri with offices in Shawnee, Ks. and Harrisonville, Mo. I am ready to serve you with a wide range of counseling services. I help people suffering from emotional, psychological and spiritual difficulties. I work with parents and children on building good communication and healthy parenting skills. I also help individuals with bipolar disorder, clinical depression, and anxiety along with marital problems that seek to destroy marriages. I utilize solution focused counseling approaches that are able to line up with a biblical standard. I firmly believe that “counseling apart from God is only a temporary solution for potentially life long problems”. My counseling includes cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focus therapy and traditional psychotherapy techniques with a Christian based environment that will incorporate faith into the treatment process. When struggling with emotional or behavioral issues, patients will receive holistic treatment that addresses biological, psychological, social, and spiritual aspects of the problem. I proudly work with Veterans and active duty military families who sometimes have different and unique sets of struggles. Additional certification and training includes Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) by Dr. Karyn Purvis, The Explosive Child by Dr. Ross Greene, and The American Association of Christian Coaches. I am also a provider for the Focus on the Family Network and part of the American Association of Christian Counselors.

After my first session, I felt understood and heard. The counselor and I connected very well and he gave me a great insight for the issue at hand. There is hope.

He is awesome. Great listener, helps me sort out my thoughts and gives me things to work on outside of our sessions. This platform has been incredibly beneficial for me. Easy to make an appointment and I enjoy my sessions from the comfort of my home. Defiantly wanted a Christian person who could understand how I want to live my life.

Elton (Michael) has been extremely helpful. He’s been great at listening, relating, asking great questions to prompt deep thoughts and discussions, and cares. He’s also given solid suggestions for reading/listening to help me outside of my sessions.

Elton Priddy has been wonderful to work with on my healing journey. He is easy to talk with and has provided me with valuable tools to assist me. Elton has helped me see areas that I need to work on but have been pushing aside. I love the flexibility of ways to connect with my councilor, it makes it less stressful for me so that I can make positive improvements my mental health.
