About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) in the State of Iowa, working with individuals & families in a variety of clinical settings. My nonjudgmental and genuine nature allows me to develop trusting therapeutic relationships. I will partner with you to process and problem-solve. I work with people on a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and lifecycle transitions. I have specific training in helping people recover from trauma.

My counseling style is supportive and interactive, and I am a good listener. I believe in treating others with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused, strengths-based, and motivational interviewing. I will personalize our work together to meet your unique and specific needs.

I look forward to learning more about you!
