About

My passion is working with children, young adults and their families in dealing with a wide array of issues including depression, anxiety, anger management, trauma, self-esteem, grief, divorce, parenting concerns, and family conflict. I believe that the therapeutic process is a collaborative journey that involves the entire family. As a therapist it is a privilege to witness this journey and to offer compassion, validation, support, and education along the way. I utilize a wide variety of approaches, including play therapy, when working with clients so that each client gets exactly what they need.
I offer flexible hours for scheduling and conveniently located just south of I-80/35 on the north side of Des Moines. I understand the importance of finding the right provider and I am happy to answer any questions that you may have prior to scheduling your first appointment.
