Licensed Mental Health Counselor
As a clinician, I utilize a holistic and supportive approach when meeting in sessions. I strive to develop an environment of connection, safety, and comfort for you to be able to discuss your concerns. I will work collaboratively with you to ensure that your goals are being met through the therapy process. My desire is for you to be able to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I work with adults and adolescents (age 13+) and have experience treating trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship and family conflicts, anger, and school/workplace issues. I am certified in Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), which is an effective tool that is used to heal from past situations, memories, and events that still have a negative impact today.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Iowa State University and my Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of South Dakota. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa and a Nationally Certified Counselor.
I accept Aetna, Anthem EAP, Wellmark (except Wellmark/Mercy Value Plan), out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna/Midlands Choice, Medica Insure (but not Medica-UHC or Medica Inspire by UnityPoint), and HealthPartners (except HealthPartners Bridge or HealthPartners UnityPoint). My private pay rate is $160 per appointment.
For questions, or to schedule a session with me, please request an appointment online or call my direct line at 515-996-6979.
