About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in both California and Michigan.

I earned my undergraduate degree at Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. I earned my graduate degree at Washington University's George Warren Brown School of Social Work in St. Louis, Missouri.

I have been an active duty military spouse for 28 years. This role has taught me to set goals, be proactive, prioritize, coordinate and collaborate.

I have spent the majority of my 20-year-career working in the medical setting, both as a hospital discharge planner and most recently a Behavioral Health Consultant (BHC) in a community clinic. A BHC works with individuals to reduce negative behavior and promote positive choices. For example, by learning to accept what you cannot change, working towards being psychologically flexible, identifying your values and commit to following them, you will be able to live a life that is more meaningful.

My approach is Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT). The goal is to alter the conversation from "problem talk" to "solution talk" by focusing on individual strengths and successes rather than on deficits. Intervention strategies are designed to build on what individuals are doing right, which helps individuals imagine what a better life may look like and the steps to take to move in that direction. My style is similar to that of a coach; positive, enthusiastic, supportive, trusting, focused, goal-oriented, knowledgeable, observant, respectful, patient and a clear communicator.

I look forward to working with you!
