As a licensed mental health counselor, I specialize in working with emerging and younger adults (16-40) who are survivors of traumatic/adverse events and those who struggle to cope with intense emotions/impulse control. I also have experience working with those with sexual/gender identity related struggles. My clinical style combines existential and behavioral theories with Yoga & Ayurvedic teachings. I primarily draw from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills and the Trauma Conscious Yoga Method in a way that meets each client on their unique journey.

I view successful therapy as an experience where your strengths and values are supported while you navigate toward your chosen life direction. Do you feel it would be of value to better tune into your needs? Are you striving for a more fulfilling life and recognize that you are ready for a change?

Everyone goes through difficult times and needs a little additional support sometimes. I am interested in assisting you in finding ways to meet your personal goals.

I have the flexibility to work with both adults and children in individual, couple, or group sessions.
The world we live in is fast paced and in a state of constant change that can add complexities and challenges to our lives, our relationships, our internal thoughts and our emotional states that we can’t anticipate and may not be ready for. When things become complex it can be helpful to have a therapist to support your growth into the person you want to be in an empathetic and judgment-free environment. Just like every person, your story and life circumstances are unique, they brought you to the exact place you are at today.

My life experiences combined with my training give me a compassionate understanding of people and their struggles. Mother of six, one killed in an accident, grandmother of seven, one developmentally delayed. These traumas, though sad, have been great teachers. I use humor and common sense in my own humanistic style. Improving your sense of humor will help with personal growth, relationships, grief, pain, and your emotional and physical health. Designing Therapeutic Gardens gives me a sense of the cycle of life and I use Healing Horticulture with some of my clients.

Are you looking for support as a whole person on your journey to wellness? Mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health are all vital aspects of wellness- when one area suffers, the others often do too. Seeing you as a whole person rather than just a diagnosis, I can support underlying concerns rather than masking symptoms. I enjoying working with clients on eating disorders, athletic injury recovery, and living with a chronic health diagnosis. I also have 9 years of experience providing support to college-aged students, including the transition to college, career counseling, and student success counseling.

Many of my clients need help with anxiety, pain, bad habits, relationships, sexuality, fears, and phobias. Issues my clients have and specific treatment areas (see my web site) range from tooth grinding, reducing chronic pain, improving performance in sports, stopping smoking, weight loss, anxiety about medical or dental procedures, sex issues, sleep problems, spiritual conflicts, setting goals and addressing mental "blocks," resolving past issues in life, to improving relationships. I help people learn to relax and how to have personal "tools" to "dial down" stress, pain, and anxiety to become healthy, happy, and centered.

Accepting In person and Virtual clients beginning January 23. Do you feel like you don't belong? That life experiences have left you different emotional, physically, mentally? Wanting to feel included in to those around you is a natural human desire. It is not selfish or weak to seek help, to address the changes in your life that have led you to this place of isolation, to feelings of depression or anxiety. You are not alone and it is not your fault.

Currently screening for "Real Solutions for Managing Anger" men's group! Each moment there is the opportunity to find a new strength in yourself. Your goals may be undefined, feel too far to reach, or may not even be on your mind. That is alright. What matters is that you are here, looking for support, understanding, empathy, or whatever else may alleviate your pain. You are not your mental health issues. You are complex, unique, and strong. Life is like a roller coaster of experiences and emotions, and sometimes, we need support with all the chaos.

Do you feel stuck, overwhelmed, lonely or not good enough? You are not alone. In fact, females are twice as likely to experience depression than males. Whether you are struggling with trauma, anxiety, parenting stress, relationship issues or body image, you can feel better. The more we realize our power and our right to set boundaries, value ourselves and choose the path of our life, the more happiness we cultivate.

What type of Des Moines 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 or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Des Moines?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering 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.
