To those around you, you may look like you have it all together. But on the inside, you are screaming. You're hiding the obsessive thoughts and "crazy" compulsions you engage in so you can maybe lower your level of anxiety. You can't sleep due to your anxiety. You've tried to make changes, but it never gets better. These are secrets that you think no one will understand.

I work with adults with Anxiety, ADHD, Insomnia / sleep issues, parenting or relationship stress, substance & behavioral addictions, trauma & life stressors in general.
I'm Amy and I’m currently accepting new clients with Wellmark BC/BS (primary), or who would like to self-pay. I believe everyone can benefit from therapy but starting the therapeutic journey to self-improvement can be daunting. I would count it a privilege to walk with you as you take these steps. With over 15 years of experience working with adults aged 18+ to address a variety of stressors, interpersonal issues and behavioral concerns, I'm trained in a variety of therapeutic methods, but tailor my approach to each person’s needs.

You’ve been feeling “off” for a while now. Your life isn’t necessarily falling apart but you’re not happy. You’ve thought about going to therapy many times but then you end up procrastinating. You tell yourself you should be able to figure this out on your own and that therapy is for people with problems worse than yours. But lately something has tipped the scales. Most of the time you handle your emotions pretty well but now it’s too much with everything you have going on. You’re stressed, anxious or depressed. Some days you’re not even sure how you feel.

Seeing clients across Iowa via Telehealth! I have a tremendous understanding of the social, emotional, psychological, and societal impacts of Adverse Childhood Experiences, and am aware of the importance of identifying and addressing toxic stress in both children and adults. I am also well-versed on the numerous symptoms of trauma. I understand how these symptoms can perpetuate other secondary effects such as addiction, eating disorders, difficulties with learning and processing information, and building and sustaining relationships.

Your life is amazing in so many areas, yet you can’t seem to get your anxiety to step aside and let you live your life to the fullest. You worry, your mind races with directionless thoughts, you’re distracted, and you’re too often irritable. Those awkward moments replay in your head and endless fears play and replay in your head. Then this presents challenges for you and your relationships. Maybe the anxiety is even coming from your relationships. Either way, let me help you come up for air. I know there is a lot on your plate, and these constant struggles with your thoughts, feelings, and moods are the last thing you need.

Currently accepting new clients! Something feels off. Sometimes it’s obvious what is affecting you, but often you’re less certain. Perhaps you have some ideas about what’s wrong, but you aren’t sure how to feel better. Maybe you are experiencing relationship issues, or just feel like you are alone even when you know you have people who care about you. It may even be possible that you are uncertain there is anything wrong at all because you’ve always felt this way - but is it really this hard for everyone? There are many people just like you that could be living happier and healthier lives - they just don’t know how to get there.

Welcome, I know the first steps in asking for help can be challenging and I am glad you are exploring the possibility of counseling and how it can enhance your life. Most people exprience difficulty or obstacles at some point in life, the good news that difficulty doesn't have to be permanent. I strive to create an environment where people can express themselves, learn more about themselves, challenge themselves, and overcome life's obstacles. No obstacle is too small or too big for us to tackle together.

****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”.

What type of Des Moines 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 Des Moines?
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.
