Nikki Green, LSCSW, LCAC
I provide individual counseling to adults and teens to help them achieve their goals & live their best life! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor and have worked in a variety of settings gaining years of experience treating mental health and substance use disorders. I challenge people to dig deep to address the root causes of emotional distress rather than just managing the symptoms.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and use this treatment modality frequently as it is highly effective and efficient in treating issues of anxiety, trauma, depression, grief, substance use, etc. One word that summarizes my personal & professional experience with EMDR is FREEDOM!
I absolutely love being a therapist & would be honored to be a part of your healing process. Please visit my website www.nikkigreencounseling.com for more information, to contact me, and for self-scheduling options.

A little about us as individuals!
Sarah is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Licensed Masters Addiction Counselor. Sarah began her journey as a therapist while working with substance use clients and their family’s at a residential treatment facility in Santa Ana, California. This created the foundation that feeds her passion and desire to work with individuals, couples and families who struggle with addiction, anxiety, depression, or any life cycle changes that may be the source of discomfort and conflict within the family system.
Alexis is a Licensed Master of Social Work therapist, has her temp license as a Master's Addiction Counselor, and has completed the Somatic Experience Practitioner training. Somatic Experiencing is a form of therapy created by Peter Levine that is used to treat trauma and stressor-related disorders. Somatic Experiencing is used to process stressors through the lens of the nervous system. Our bodies remember the story it wants to tell, and Somatic Experience therapy works to release stress that might get “stuck” in the body. Alexis is passionate about working with individuals that have experienced trauma, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and addiction.

Jennifer Dawdy, LSCSW, LCAC
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Master’s in Social Work. In addition, I am a Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor (LCAC) and speak both English and Spanish. My passion is helping families by empowering them to discover, learn, and attain emotional and mental wellness. I have dedicated my career to working with families in various capacities including individual counseling, couples counseling, home studies for adoption and other types of placement as well as family counseling.
I have experience working with a very culturally diverse population and I have lived, volunteered and worked in countries in Latin America and Asia. This has helped me become more culturally aware and embrace the diverse experiences of the families I serve. For more than 20 years, I have provided a wide range of counseling and services to families, including; anxiety support, family building counseling, grief and loss counseling, parenting support, addiction counseling, conflict resolution, EAP short-term counseling, and transitioning life circumstances.
In my work and in my personal experience of losing a child, undergoing miscarriages and battling with secondary fertility, I have seen how few specialized services exist for families facing unique circumstances and exploring options of family building. Counseling can offer couples a safe place to process these losses and consider the direction a family wants to take. After visiting family building clinics, I realized that some families would make more progress with a counseling service in the comfort of their own home. Virtual counseling at home is especially helpful in cases of clients who are on bed rest or recovering from a miscarriage or birth. Families may also benefit from talking about various life transitions at home rather than in a clinical setting. I have offices in Overland Park and Kansas City, Kansas in addition to offering sessions in a virtual setting.
I will never forget my unease when the social worker came to my bedside to talk about the loss of our son. But when I heard she had also lost her daughter, I suddenly felt I could open up and talk to her. Your professional won’t know how you feel but for some experiences in life it is helpful to speak to someone who knows the degree to which a heart can hurt and that healing is possible.
I have specialized training to help people with trauma as well as with loss and grief.
