I have particular experience, skill, and interest in helping people with issues related to or including trauma, pregnancy , the postpartum phase, parenting, and the menstrual cycle.
Our minds are a complex interrelation between our brain, other somatic systems, our social context, and much else about our environment. Improving mental health calls for a creative and adaptive approach that takes all these factors into account. Treatment works by building together a safe environment so that you can investigate the way your life experiences have led to certain ways of being in regards to yourself, relationships, and our sociocultural environment. Once you recognize these patterns, you can move forward with agency in order to live life in accordance with your desires, values, and sense of an authentic self.

Many of my clients complain of feeling stuck in their present thought processes. They face internal conflicts both big and small. They are aware of the way they want to react to situations and approach life, but often they feel sabotaged by destructive ways of thinking. Often these patterns have developed because of traumatic experiences that have occurred over time. Because of these thought processes, individuals can feel symptoms of anxiety and depression. People usually suffer in silence for years without anyone around them having any indication of their internal battle. This can lead to a strong sense of isolation.

Sometimes when we reach a place of safety in our lives, paradoxically symptoms can emerge, growing louder, calling our attention to care for ourselves in a new way. Maybe you feel stuck in the past. Or too busy worrying about the future to enjoy your life today. Perhaps you're bone-tired, overwhelmed, out of alignment, or don't feel like yourself. Or from the outside things appear great, and you wonder, why am I still a mess inside? Part of you feels ready to set down whatever pain burdens you. Let's get curious about that. If you're in WI or IL considering a new approach to your mental health, I would love to be a resource to you.

As a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner I understand the importance of treating the whole person. Sometimes life can feel so complex that we forget laughter can be the best medicine. What makes you laugh? For me it’s a good stand up comedy show with one of my favorite comedians. What makes you happy? For me it’s a clear schedule and my comfy couch. What motivates you? For me it’s touching lives one by one even it’s it’s via tele-visit.
