Announcement icon Masks are required in our waiting room however during session masks may be removed.
I work from a person-centered perspective. I am able to provide Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Mindfulness, and many other therapy techniques as they fit for the client’s needs. I am especially experienced in working with those who have intellectual disabilities due to my extensive background in providing direct care. I am also well versed in working with members of the LGBTQIA+ community as I identify as member in the community.
I work with any age group but mainly focus on the younger population. I have had training in substance abuse counseling and performed as a substance abuse counselor for 2 years. I have been trained in Play Therapy as of 2021.
Please call or email to receive our new client paperwork and to schedule an assessment, either in-person or via Telehealth. I currently work in the Newton and Marshalltown office as well as the surrounding school districts in these areas.
