Our story starts in 2009 when founder, Randy Floyd, LSCSW, opened a psychotherapy office in Overland Park, Kansas. For the next five years, we treated children and adults with anxiety disorders and more generalized problems involving excessive worry, anxiety and stress reactions. While we really enjoyed the office setting, we just wanted something a little different than traditional psychotherapy. So......In 2014, we took it to the next level, closed the office, and became a community based program. Wow! We are having so much FUN ;) Being in the community allows us to see people for who they (as unfiltered as they want to be), while also allowing us to teach them Cognitive Behavioral skills in the environments in which they live, work, go to school, and play.
Midwest Anxiety is a community based program for children, teens, and adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, and more generalized problems involving negative thoughts, feelings, or behaviors. Unlike traditional office-based psychotherapy, we work with people in “real life” situations in their natural environments (home, school, sporting events, etc). Instead of coming to us in a stuffy office, we come visit you in your world. We believe this “hands on” approach gives us the best opportunity to see your strengths and help you overcome your struggles in the environments that you live. Our mobility also allows us to work with people in "real time." No "see you in a couple weeks" for your next appointment. We work in the moments (daily if needed) and in the environments of your struggles. Understanding in real time in your natural environments helps us implement step-by-step Cognitive Behavioral strategies to modify negative patterns as they arise.
We employ an interactive, action-oriented Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) approach, integrating features of behavioral modification into cognitive restructuring. Cognitive Behavior Therapy is different from other kinds of psychotherapy or "talk therapy." CBT is an educational, goal-oriented approach, which focuses on how you think (cognition), how you feel (emotion) and how you act (behavior). Specifically, the interaction between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors determines quality of life.
We believe in a goal focused treatment that emphasizes your strengths, while teaching you skills to better manage your struggles. We are constantly working to make progress and believe positive results are not beyond you. We hope to see you soon!
