Now accepting patients at my new Outpatient Mental Health Clinic in Phillips, Wi. I am a dual diagnosis therapist skilled in working with individuals experiencing mental health concerns, addiction/substance use disorders, or both. I am a consummate professional that has treated a variety of patients varying from age 6 and up. I hold the following credentials: Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Substance Abuse Counselor and Clinical Supervisor in Training.
I offer both in-person and Telehealth therapy. I would love to work with you! Life and humanity has more than its fair share of challenges. There are good reasons for your struggles, and you are not alone. Whatever it is you would like to change or work on, there is HOPE!
Life is hard, plain and simple. Life is even more difficult when you or a loved one are struggling with mental health and people around you are constantly invalidating and dismissing those real emotions. The stigma that surrounds mental health is powerful—it can make the idea of therapy seem as though there is something wrong with you, when in reality, there is such power in realizing you need help and reaching out for it. Sharing your story in a confidential space may seem daunting, but ultimately, the process can lead you to greater self-awareness, self-esteem, and most importantly, a more fulfilling life.
Hello, I have been a therapist for about 12 years now. I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults within that time. I find I enjoy helping people overcome their trauma and take control of their healing. I use a client centered approach to meet your needs using multiple modalities that will fit your needs.
While it can be true that everyone might be looking for something a little different in life, it has been my experience that most people want to feel loved, understood, and accepted. If we didn't experience these things growing up, or don't know how to extend these messages to ourselves, it makes sense that no matter what good we accomplish in life at some point we can end up feeling lost. If this sounds familiar, I'm here to help remind you of the person you were before you may have lost your way. I work with adults who have experienced trauma, and those with childhood wounds. I also provide services to children, and couples.

I specialize in a wide range of psychological evaluations. Most of these are related to the criminal legal system. I assess risk of recidivism and amenability to treatment for those charged with sexual offending, both in the adult and juvenile system. I evaluate for competency to stand trial and whether there is support for a plea of Not Guilty by Reason of Insanity. I use formal testing, actuarial predictive instruments, review of records, collateral information and clinical interview to formulate my recommendations. I also see therapy clients who seek a fuller understanding of who they are.

Trauma, a difficult childhood, deep loss—they leave a mark. We’d all love to believe that what happened “back then” doesn’t have to affect us in the “here & now.” But they do. Painful experiences change how we feel about ourselves, our relationships, and how we view the world. We want to move on but we're stuck. No matter how hard we try to push the pain back or down or away... it leaks back in and we find ourselves living in the same old pain with the same old problems: Stuck. Exhausted. Frustrated.
