Hello! I’m Lanie, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Missouri and Kansas. I believe it is very necessary for you to feel confident and secure with those you trust to connect with on your path in this world. I also believe that it is a more genuine relationship when you have some idea of your provider’s life education vs just formal education. I completed my Master's Degree in Counseling with an emphasis in
Marriage and Family Counseling in 1999 at the University of Missouri Kansas City. I have been very fortunate to be able to have a career filled with 22 years of work that is incredibly diverse in the cultures, issues, people, settings and approaches involved. I believe this has been partly due to my own history including such diverse influences.
I’ve spent most of my career working with people who have experienced complex trauma including children and adults recovering traumatic loss, abuse, abduction, first responders, military and other healthcare providers who struggle to know where to turn. I have been proud to assist non profit, government and private agencies in resiliency efforts such as active shooter drills and consultation to assist in creating trauma informed care and judicial systems.
I have found mindfulness based therapies such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy to be very effective in combination with an understanding of the neuroscience of habit change. As we work together you will become more present, “make room” for adversity, define your identity and commit to a life filled with rich meaning and a sense of purpose.

I've been talking to Lane for a while now, and I feel that she understands me and helps me in a way that works best for me. I couldn't ask for a better match with a therapist.

Lane has a gift for therapy. She listens, helps and makes you feel at ease to share your experience even if it is painful. I trust her because of her acceptance and nonjudgmental attitude. She is bringing healing to my life.
