I work with adults and adolescents on a variety of concerns including PTSD, childhood trauma, relationship ruptures, abuse (including narcissistic), Bipolar , depression, anxiety, gender, sexuality, & ADHD.
Feeling disconnected, misunderstood, or like you are on the outside looking in? Do you feel unseen or unheard and want a therapist that strives to really see and hear you? I approach all clients as an interaction between two people, not just you talking. I often offer feedback, insights, and sometimes direction. I also love to laugh and swear with my clients, and I sometimes even cry with them. Most importantly, I see you as a unique and strong individual with a story to tell and a healing journey ahead of you; and I would be honored to share this journey with you.

****Not accepting new clients. After undergrad I moved to North Carolina where I received my M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a certificate in Marriage and Family Counseling. I was licensed in NC for two years prior to making the decision to move back to Iowa. I work with all ages, but primarily focus on ages 10 years or older, and I am comfortable with working with most diagnoses. I am a CBT therapist that will also at times use a Solution-Focused and DBT approach. I remind clients who are searching for a therapist, “Therapist are like shoes. We do not fit you all. You need to make sure you find your right fit”.

I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker. I worked several years on a dual diagnosis unit, which provided me with a strong foundation in working with people facing both mental health and addictions issues. The importance of working hard and doing your best were instilled in me at a young age. This helps me support others in seeing the best in themselves. I grew up in a small rural area and enjoy being active and being outside. When I am not working, I am typically enjoying time with family.

Bipolar Disorder Therapists
The defining feature of bipolar disorder is mania. It can be the triggering episode of the disorder, followed by a depressive episode, or it can first manifest after years of depressive episodes. The switch between mania and depression can be abrupt, and moods can oscillate rapidly. But while an episode of mania is what distinguishes bipolar disorder from depression, a person may spend far more time in a depressed state than in a manic or hypomanic one.
