While working with children, teens, and adults , I take on a strength based, client-centered approach that’s collaborative, culturally sensitive and non-judgmental.
I earned my Bachelor of Social Work with a minor in psychology from the University of Northern Iowa. I continued my education and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a Master of Social work degree with specialization in trauma informed care. During my time at UNI, I gained valuable experience working with children, youth, and families. Outside of college, I worked as a Mental Health Therapist, in the school system, counseling students experiencing concerns with depression, anxiety, grief, PTSD, self-identify, self-harm, relationships, and more.

I have enjoyed working with adolescents and adults for several years to provide a calm, welcoming, and laid back approach into the counseling office.
Do you feel defeated and alone? Are you seeking to heal the inner areas of self doubt, worry, fear, pain, and other places where hope is subsiding? Do you need a space to problem solve, slow down, and reflect with guidance from a clinical perspective? I am a clinician with over 12 years of experience providing person centered counseling and would like to help you discover how to find awareness and cope better. A raven is associated with loss; yet it's symbolism is complex. As a talking bird, it represents prophecy and insight which makes complex decisions and shows rich awareness. I am ready to help support you in your hour of need!

I work with ages 3 through adulthood: individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with individuals who have: depression, anxiety, Bipolar, grief from any type of loss, ADHD, Autism, stress, anger, divorce, and those who need a third party to talk to without judgement. I am trained in Adlerian Play Therapy for children and adults to reach beyond traditional talk therapy for self-expression/processing when words are hard to find. It is proven that children say much more in play than they have the words for.

I work exclusively via telehealth and meet with adults that are physically located anywhere within the state of Iowa.
Does it feel like a struggle to manage all the things in your daily life? Do you find yourself easily overwhelmed? Have tension in your relationships? Do you wish to be a great friend/partner/parent/student/employee but feel like you are always falling short? Perhaps you have pain points from the past that you’d like to process. I see and honor the parts of you that are curious about experiencing something different and that are courageous enough to reach out for help. I create a relaxed, non-judgmental space to explore what’s been coming up for you and help you consider what you want your future to feel like.

What type of Waterloo 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 Waterloo?
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.
