About me

Welcome!

I am an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker-Wisconsin) with 20 years direct practice experience in a variety of settings. These include; residential, in-home therapy, emergency services, foster care, adoption, and outpatient therapy. I worked as a lecturer and advisor in the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Social Work Program for six years. I also volunteer as a Disaster Mental Health worker for the Red Cross.

My specialties include helping people with depression, anxiety, family challenges, self-esteem, life changes, compassion fatigue, and anger management. My theoretical perspectives/interventions include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Expressive/Creative Modalities.

My approach to therapy is to create an open, warm, and inclusive environment. I believe it is important to work collaboratively and practice flexibility tailoring interventions to individual needs. I strive to provide support while identifying strengths. My goal is to discover potential, foster growth, and achieve a sense of wellness.

I look forward to meeting and working with you as we begin this journey!

She’s a sweet gal, comes from a no judgement perspective and is willing to ask important and thought provoking questions. Would recommend.
