I am currently an intern in the Graduate Clinical Training Program who practices counseling with children, adolescents and adults. I have a special interest in working with individuals and families to address anxiety, behavioral issues, parenting, attachment issues and life transitions. I bring a commitment to a collaborative, client-centered experience that recognizes each individual’s strengths and goals.
I am a graduate student in Social Work at the University of Iowa with an emphasis on family-centered practice. I also earned a Master of Fine Arts in nonfiction writing, as well as a BA in international studies and English, from the University of Iowa. I previously worked for over a decade in education, teaching students of all ages, ranging from preschool to college. I also worked for seven years as an advocate for individuals and families experiencing domestic violence.
I believe my role is to listen without judgment, with genuine interest and to be an empathic witness to the individuals who share their experiences, challenges and stories with me. I enjoy spending time with my family traveling, attending festivals and being in the outdoors. We also find lots of joy in our two chihuahuas. I love exploring my own curiosities through reading and learning of all forms.
