About me

I am licensed in State of Iowa with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with coping with addictions, sleeping disorders, chronic medical/health adversity, LGBTQ+ issues, geriatric-related life changes, career difficulties, military related issues, anxiety, and depression. After gathering from you a comprehensive history and your identified goals for therapy during our initial session, I will work with you to tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. For some, take the first step to sign-up for therapy can feel intimidating and unfamiliar. I am committed to fostering a supportive and accepting environment to assist you with reaching you identified goals and become a healthier you.
