About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with clinical licenses in Wyoming, Kansas and Nevada. l have over 15 years of social work experience including 7 years of clinical experience. I have primarily work with children and their parents on social/emotional needs. I have worked with adults with intellectual disabilities and adults with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, change of life issues, career challenges, OCD and ADHD. I have most recently began work in treating adult with trauma and PTSD.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe the relationship between myself and my clients is the most important component in treatment and treat everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, dialectical behavior therapy, and mindfulness based counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and help you.

I look forward to working with you!
