About Me

Hello! I am a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Iowa. After I obtained my Master's degree, I started my career at a community agency providing substance abuse counseling and problem gambling to adults. More recently, I have been working with young adults struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, and stress management. My appoach as a therapist is very client centered; you will be directly involved in your therapeutic decisions. I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy techniques as well as solution focused techniques during sessions. I highlight each of my client's strengths, discuss coping skills that worked in the past and brainstorm for new coping skills to move forward on making better life decisions.
