I have experience working with: ADHD, anxiety, autism, depression, ODD, conduct disorder, school performance issues, abuse and trauma, childhood behavioral issues, problems in transition for children (divorce, separation, grief), self-esteem, and social skills.
As a play therapist, I believe in using the power of play, which is a child's most natural form of communication, to connect with clients and help children resolve their challenges in a safe, nurturing environment. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and Registered Play Therapist with seven years of therapy experience working with children, adolescents, and their families. I was awarded the 2018 Play Therapist of the Year by the Iowa Association for Play Therapy. I have received extensive training under the direct instruction of Dr. Terry Kottman, the creator of Adlerian Play Therapy.

Sometimes it is hard for parents and children to understand each other's needs, wants and desires within the family relationship at any age, let alone effectively communicate our feelings in kind, respectful language without hurting others. As adults we may worry about how we look and seem to others, or have some other underlying issue we aren't comfortable sharing with others or may struggle to build deeper meaningful relationships to build our support network. Most clients have struggles fitting in socially, have relationship problems at home or just need someone besides a partner, or parent to talk to.

I love being open to opportunities and learning new things. My family is extremely important to me, and I have taught my three children to be kind, thoughtful, caring people. It is those traits that I carry with me. I also want to be there for people who are hurting and need someone. We need to be the good we see in the world, to be examples to our fellow humans, and to admit when we are wrong and to apologize for any hurt we may have caused. Be of good humor. I love to laugh and be goofy. Life is short. Dance like no one is watching.

Accepting new clients for in-person or telehealth therapy services! Sometimes life throws us difficult circumstances that are beyond our control, and it can leave us with feelings of hopelessness. These “stuck” moments of adversity can also be viewed as our greatest opportunities for personal growth, and I genuinely believe every client can benefit from this philosophy. Ultimately, once the dust settles from our initial trauma, our character can be measured by our level of determination and how we choose to respond to adverse life experiences, of course, with the appropriate guidance/support from our support system.

Children, adolescents, and adults who have faced challenging experiences in their lives or who are currently facing challenging experiences in their lives need and deserve to exist in spaces where they feel safe, can be heard and are accepted as they are. They often come to therapy because they believe they deserve to heal from their past experiences or cope with current experiences for themselves and those around them. Many of them also come to believe that they are inherently worthy of existing in a space that is safe and accepting of their authentic selves, which can be very freeing.
