About me

Hello!
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Wisconsin with over 22 years’ experience providing direct care for new parents and infants, children, adolescents, young adults, adults and families. I have worked at an inpatient residential treatment center for adolescents and a community mental health clinic. I am also a consultant for the Wisconsin association of infant mental health (WI-AIMH).

In 1999, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stout with a Master’s degree in mental health counseling. In addition, I have specialized training through the University of Wisconsin Madison in infant early childhood and family mental health. I am also trained in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), child parent psychotherapy (CPP) and reflective practices such as yoga and meditation.

It is my passion and honor to be a guide for people in my community in finding their path to a life worth living. I encourage a whole life approach where we will focus on you as a person versus any diagnosis that you may have been given. I strive to create a safe, nonjudgmental space that welcomes people of diverse backgrounds. I hope that when we talk, you feel safe, supported, and empowered to make lasting changes.

When I am not counseling, I am a parent of a teenager, training for RAGNAR road or trail race, doing yoga, playing viola, learning, reading and crafting. I try to practice what I teach. Change and growth take effort beginning with small intentional steps. We aren’t moving backward as long as we decide to move forward. In seeking counseling, I know you are ready to take the steps to create change even if you are not sure where to begin. I look forward to working with you to build the life you want to live while healing from previous challenges.

Psychotherapy is above all a collaborative approach with the goal of helping you to achieve your goals in a healthy manner. Together, at your speed, we will discover your strengths and perhaps even find some new talents.

I have appointments available weekday evenings and weekend mornings/evenings Central Standard Time.
