About

I find the most effective way of working with people is to meet people where they are at. It does not make sense to have people try to fit in boxes that are not accurate for their life. I utilize mindfulness and a wellness approach to help increase the positivity of what is going on in a person's life. I am able to provide services utilizing an EMDR and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) approach. I believe that it is the person's right to interview their therapist for best fit, and want to provide this prior to scheduling an intake for anyone. I also provide supervision for Mental Health &/or AODA professionals.
I offer counseling utilizing Positive Psychology and Person Centered with formal training in Mindfulness, which is an evidence-based treatment for depression/anxiety and alcohol and other drugs. I am also trained in EMDR, an evidenced-based treatment for trauma. I try to do best by each person and imagine myself in the person's shoes that I am working with.
I have completed CPT training and Phase 1 & 2 training in Brainspotting, which is a treatment gaining research for trauma/mental health therapy at this time. I also provide services at my office, in home, and via Telehealth at this time. I am available in the Fox Valley (Green Bay, Appleton, Oshkosh).
