I am passionate about helping Iowa children, adults and families find their path to hope and healing. I provide clients with a safe, nonjudgmental therapy space where they can feel comfortable building the skills they need to thrive and take care of their mental health. Together, we build a treatment plan that works best for them and help clients achieve their personal goals. I have experience working with a range of clients concerns including Trauma Informed Care, play centered therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and strength-based therapy. I am trained as an EMDR therapist, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing.

I have experience working with clients to address grief and loss, depression, anxiety, LGBTQ issues, sexual assault, domestic violence, self-esteem, chronic stress, relationship issues and more. I utilize play therapy techniques such as stories, art, and games to allow children to express themselves at their own pace in a safe and relaxed environment.

My goal as a therapist is to create a safe environment, where you feel comfortable enough to be open and honest; a place to share your concerns and fears. I believe in your ability to make positive steps toward a more fulfilling life.
