Counselor, MS, LMHC, RPT-S
I have experience working with: ADHD, anxiety,
, 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.
