About

My practice is a trauma-informed and strengths-based approach focused on empowering clients to actively assist in their mental health journey. I use a blend of cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy, play therapy techniques, art therapy techniques, and other personally expressive interventions with clients. I place a high value on clients’ personal autonomy and collaboration in establishing mental health goals.
I received my Trauma-Informed Master of Social Work from the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls, Iowa. My experience includes provision of counseling to youth in elementary schools up through the college years. I also enjoy working with adults of all ages, families, and clients residing in nursing home, retirement, and assisted living centers.
My practice is client-led and incorporates spiritual and cultural sensitivity, as well as the special healing needed to counter trauma’s impact on the mind and body. Attaining holistic and positive lifelong mental health begins with strong therapeutic rapport, a client-focused outlook, and ensuring mental health therapy occurs in safe settings.
