When I help adults with anxiety , depression and self esteem, we work together to discover the negative things you tell yourself about you.
Are you struggling with low self esteem and doubt? Do you feel anxious, trapped and "get in your head" a lot? Do you often feel sad? These feelings can seem overwhelming. The good news is you deserve to feel better and I can help you do this. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa and Kansas. I'm also a Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor. My practice supports those who want to create a richer more meaningful life by reducing stress, anxiety and fear and create a greater sense of self confidence and purpose.

What are your stories?" I pay attention to details, and have created concise handouts from many books: How to Have Healthy Conflict and Healthy Relationships, Anxiety as the Control Disease, How to Self-Soothe and be Mindful, How to Release Anger and Resentment, and Factors in Emotional Resilience.
My ideal client is commited to personal growth. I believe we are all fragile creatures, yet capable of resilience. We experience painful thought/feeling states and then we weave stories to explain them. Narrative Therapy has been a natural fit for me: the client defines the goals, we examine the details of self-limiting stories, including family and cultural "scripts." We work to co-create stories about identity that have more space for possibilities and emotional resilience.

*Not currently enrolling new clients* Trauma happens when stressful experiences deplete our physical, mental, or emotional resources. Unresolved traumas can persist as anxiety , depression, substance abuse, and a variety of other distressing symptoms that wreak havoc on our daily lives. I do not believe that we "get over" our traumas, but rather that we find a way through them. As your therapist, I will walk beside you in your journey through trauma as you regain control over your personal story.

Though I specialize in working with long term mental health problems such as anxiety , depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder & Asperger's, I also support those addressing short term stressors & other issues.
*Not currently accepting new clients* At times in our lives, each of us need objective support. I have guided and witnessed others as a mental health professional for the past 14 years, and throughout my life as a family member, a friend, and a teacher. I believe that at our core, each of us has the resources we need, though they may be difficult to access. Listening to and appreciating each person in a respectful way is at the heart of how I approach life. I also find humor, practicality and creativity to be strengths I offer.

I have worked with people struggling with addiction, grief, divorce/marital issues, anxiety , depression, trauma, legal problems, behavioral concerns, family and relationship issues.
NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. I believe that one primary role as a therapist is to hold on to hope when you believe there is no hope and to help people find strength and courage in times of vulnerability. When someone considers working with a therapist often it is because they have begun to feel lost, or alone, or confused. Or when facing hard things like divorce, death of a loved one, addiction, trouble at work, difficulty sleeping and constant worry. Life is hard. You don’t have to walk it alone. Contact me - I am willing to walk with you.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.

If you're looking for an Iowa City anxiety therapist, these professionals provide anxiety therapy and counseling in Iowa City.
