I am licensed in Wisconsin with 10 years of professional work experience, including school-based mental health services for all ages, day treatment services for children and teens, and outpatient mental health services for children, adolescents/teens and adults. The majority of my professional work has been with children and adolescents who present with behavioral issues, poor school performance, or those who have experienced trauma and/or abuse. I also have experience in helping clients with family conflicts, parenting issues, motivation, self-esteem, and overall confidence, and specialize in depression, anxiety, trauma, attachment issues and childhood disorders. I have participated in specialized trainings in Attachment-Based Family Therapy, play and rec therapy, CBT, Trauma-Informed Care, Trauma Reprocessing, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I consider myself to have a calming engagement style and strengths-based clinical approach and find it important to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
