I have experience working with: ADHD, anxiety, autism , 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.

Sometimes putting yourself first is one of the most challenging things to do, asking for help taking care of your mental health feels overwhelming these days. Add in daily stressors of managing schoolwork, job stress, family drama, peer conflict and just struggling to function normally can be too much for children and adults. As adults we may worry about how we look and seem to others, or have some other underlying issue we aren't comfortable sharing with others or may struggle to build deeper meaningful relationships to build our support network. Counseling can offer an outlet to process your concerns outside of that network.

Trauma also disrupts families; constant conflict, deep emotional wounds, lack of empathy, and violence. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP) and a Multicultural and Social Justice advocate.

Overwhelmed, it's hard to breathe, tears well in your eyes, and you are fatigued with worry. Maybe the flood of emotions started recently or years ago. Perhaps someone hurt you, you saw something terrible happen, or you always felt down, scared and alone. You want nothing more then to feel confident again to move forward; free from hurt. My focus is on helping others resolve what is most troubling for them.
