I am licensed in Wisconsin as a professional counselor with nearly 20 years of experience. I help clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, motivation, self esteem, confidence, & depression—all of the life challenges that throw us off course. I have found it important to bring a holistic approach to care and well-being, recognizing the synergistic relationship of body, mind, spirit. I offer respect, sensitivity, and compassion, recognizing and honoring the uniqueness of your personal journey. Our work together will be strength-based, collaborative, and experiential—designed to meet your unique and specific needs. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy takes courage. Congratulations on making that commitment to you. It's surprising how wonderful life can be when we are able to take action and get involved in our own healing.
