About me

I am licensed in Nebraska with 13 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients of all ages with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, & depression. I also have experience with clients ages 4-18 years of age who struggle with severe behavior issues, anxiety, depression, trauma, and challenges of life. I have worked with the parents/caregivers of varying ages with parenting concerns, life struggles, and trauma.

I have been described as patient, compassionate, and caring. I am straightforward, often clients have said our sessions are more like a conversation. I have an undergraduate degree in elementary education, and I say I like to sneak into therapy. Also, I must be a detective at times, and in conversation, I will often learn things I may not have otherwise because clients feel it is irrelevant. I can see patterns of behavior or possible triggers. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment.

My mission is to see clients be successful in achieving their goals not only in therapy but in life. I always say, “I am here to guide you, and you do all the hard work.” When goals are created, I make sure it is realistic, achievable, and short to start with, long-term goals will come when and if the client wishes to create them. I may push a bit but never outside of your comfort zone. I feel it is important, to be honest in therapy, to help keep clients in a comfortable and safe environment. If I recommend something and the client is not comfortable or knows they will not do it, being honest about it saves time and a different recommendation can be made.

Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!
