Hi. I have many years of doing substance abuse counseling in a hospital setting in Iowa. I have also worked as a school counselor with grades K - 8, I have taught Psychology courses on the college level and am familiar with all aspects of counseling theories and brain development. The college course I enjoyed teaching the most is "Wellness." This course discussed all aspects of both physical and mental health, which, of course are connected. I incorporate wellness and long-term balance in my counseling sessions.

My experience with Alice has been wonderful. She is just the humorous, stern, and smart person I needed to hear from when I was struggling most. She's very knowledgeable and responsive, and you can tell she wants you to feel your best.

I came to Alice with only the goal of working through my grief. I finished therapy with tools and knowledge to conquer not only my grief, but also the feelings of anxiety, guilt and more that I had to suppressed and dismissed. Each session I learned so much more about myself. Alice is a wonderful therapist. She listens to everything I say, and finds the little details of things which I overlook. She made me realize a lot of things about my past that make me the way I am now, and how I can break the cycles of my past. Alice is very reassuring, and always makes sure to point out things in my life which I should be proud of and feel good about. If I return to therapy in the future, I will no doubt choose Alice to be my therapist.

Alice is amazing! She has walked me through some really difficult times. I feel supported and nurtured by her. She reminds me that it's ok to laugh and that I can break down overwhelming tasks into smaller manageable steps. I'm so very thankful for her!

Alice has been my therapist for about 6 months , and believe I am the luckiest person ever to have been matched with her as my therapist. I am not new to therapy and it took sometime to admit I needed therapy and go back to it, but Alice has made it so easy to talk to her whether that be video appointment or a simple written message. Alice has helped me unlock the confidence I thought I didn't have. She is understanding when it comes to rescheduling or cancellations. I trust her methods in the way she approaches my concerns and helps me work through difficult times. She is a therapist that will be there and encourage you always.
