Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. I received my MSW from the University of Northern Iowa in 2018, where I specialized in trauma processing and trauma-informed care. I am a trained EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapist and work with depression, anxiety, anger management, and addiction, among other issues. I like to use an eclectic style in my treatment modalities, and I believe there is no “one-size-fits-all” in therapy. I think people are the experts on their own experiences, so I enjoy working with individuals to tailor their mental health services to meet their needs.
I have a calm tone and demeanor during sessions. I’ll actively listen and allow you to take as much time as you need to express yourself without feeling rushed or pressured. I will let you define what is causing you significant discomfort, and we will find solutions and set goals for your treatment.
Reaching out for help is the first step. During our first session, you’ll have the opportunity to express what is bringing you into counseling. I’ll ask you some questions to understand your social history, support network, and protective factors. If you think we might be a good fit, I welcome you to reach out and get started today!
