The human experience is messy and unpredictable. It takes courage to ask for help, and I am here to meet you where you are. Unfortunately, counseling is not one-size-fits-all, but together we can craft an experience that matches your needs. I offer a warm, safe environment that allows self-exploration of thoughts and experiences without the fear of judgment or shame. I enjoy using humor and creativity in my practice and often challenge my clients to reach their full potential. Together we will work to achieve personal growth using a collaborative approach of empowerment and trust.

Making the decision to begin therapy can be difficult, and it is a brave step in taking care of your own wants and needs in life. I deeply value the various aspects that make up the journeys of others, as we all have our own unique stories. Often through reflection, when we allow ourselves to slow down and notice what we are experiencing in the moment, true self discovery and capacity from within can be cultivated. With compassion and openness I walk beside my clients as they work toward relief and resolution.

“When people don't have any curiosity about themselves, that is always a bad sign.” Irvin Yalom Hello! You reading this seems to be a good sign; it tells me you have an interest in examining your life, as something probably isn’t working the way you’d like it to. I use a humanistic therapy approach, specifically existentialism, reality therapy, and attachment theory — although these might not mean anything to you now, they will — as I enjoy sharing everything I know with the hope it will help create additional meaning in your life.

Hi! A misconception I have realized in therapy is that a client will look for their therapist to "tell them what to do". I believe that YOU are the expert in your own life and I am more of a co-pilot. Those who have been clients in the past will smile when they hear, "I'm just in the passenger seat holding the map, we will go down any street you want, and we can turn around if that was a wrong turn", or "You're driving this bus!" I know how much courage it takes to make the first step, and I am proud of you!

What type of Ankeny mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Ankeny?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
