I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who specializes in working with adults and older adults who are experiencing emotional distress and/or who are concerned about age-related cognitive changes. I believe early assessment of memory or other suspected changes reduces anxiety, provides information that can improve brain health, and helps clients and their loved ones prepare for the future. Cognitive evaluations include interview, testing, review of results, and a report to you and/or your healthcare provider. Cognitive evaluations are conducted at Des Moines University, Behavioral Health Clinic. Please call 515-271-1716 to schedule.
If you seek relief from anxiety, stress, or depression or are striving toward greater self-awareness and positive change, I am privileged to enter my clients' personal and emotional worlds in therapy and walk with them in search of greater purpose, meaning, and happiness. I have a warm, casual interpersonal style and utilize CBT and supportive strategies.
My primary practice location is at DMU Behavioral Health Clinic (3200 Grand Ave. in Des Moines). Please call 515-271-1716 for information and scheduling. In-clinic and telehealth appointments are available, and most insurances are accepted. For additional private practice information (Medicare/BCBS only, please visit: www.MemoryandMeaningClinical.com.
