About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in Wisconsin. I have been working as a therapist for the past four years, and have several years of experience as a social worker who has worked in Child Protective Services and in-home Autism therapy. I have worked with clients who experience a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, sex addiction, alcohol and drug addiction, incarceration and legal problems, and sex offenders. I have the most experience working with adult males who are reentering society after a period of incarceration, but I'm comfortable working with anyone.

When it comes to scheduling, I am looking to add additional clients for weekends and some evenings during the week!

I graduated in 2017 with a Masters in Social Work from the University of Wisconsin - Madison! Go Bucky! My undergrad experience was completed at University of Wisconsin - Whitewater where I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I enjoy talking and learning about others through their experiences and stories, and I find that I am a great listener.

My counseling approach is client centered! I enjoy building rapport with clients and challenging them to reach their full potential. I utilize a combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused, and Mindfulness techniques, as well as focusing on meeting you where you are at in your journey. My goal is to help you reach your goals by providing support and motivation!

Change requires vulnerability, empathy, and willingness. Taking that first step means you're on the road to improving your life and I hope to be a part of that journey.

I look forward to working with you.
