I am a licensed mental health counselor who provides client-centered, trauma-informed, individual therapy. My holistic and integrative approach provides flexibility for therapy to match client needs. I work with my clients to create a strong counseling partnership. Within that partnership, I believe that identifying strengths and incorporating self-compassion are necessary components to creating an ideal environment for growth and healing. I work primarily with adults to resolve issues associated with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, life transitions, adjustment following sudden life changes, pregnancy/birth-related issues (including perinatal mood disorders, infertility, loss, surrogacy, and adoption), grief/loss and trauma.
I am a graduate of both The University of Iowa and Drake University and have a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I began my counseling career as an intern in the training program here at Mind and Spirit Counseling Center. Since that time I have received specialized training in both trauma-informed therapeutic practices and perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADS).
We were never meant to go through life’s challenges alone and, above all, I want people to know that we don’t have to. When you are here in my office, I strive to ensure that you are in a welcoming, calming and comfortable environment. When I'm not here at the Center, my passions include artistic/creative projects, reading, music, comedy, exploring nature and time with my family.
