Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I offer a therapy space that is reflective, non-judgmental and collaborative. My speciality for several years has been working with struggles in pregnancy and the postpartum period. Many of the parents I meet with are experiencing challenges with bonding, work/life balance, family stress, unwanted thoughts and hopelessness. I also support individuals and couples with grief related to fertility challenges and pregnancy loss.
Another area of expertise and interest of mine is with grief and traumatic grief. My training in this is compassion-based and focuses on sharing, honoring and coping after your loved one has died.
I also treat anxiety disorders, depression, and struggles related to work, relationships, and life transitions. I primarily use interpersonal therapy (IPT), compassion-based therapy, and mindfulness approaches with my clients.
I received my masters degree from Drake University and have been in clinical practice for 15 years. My certifications are in perinatal mental health and traumatic grief.
I accept Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield (but not Common Spirit, Mercy CHI Employees, or Value Plans) and most out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance plans. My self pay rate is $185 for your first appointment and $160 after that.
If you have any questions about the services I provide, or would like to schedule a therapy session, please use the form on this page to contact me.
