Licensed Mental Health Counselor
I am an approachable therapist, focused on providing a non-judgmental space for clients to process life’s stressors. I am committed to working with you to accomplish your goals for a healthy, fulfilling life.
I work with adolescents (14+) and adults. I have a variety of professional experiences in the treatment and support of mental health and wellness. I have experience working with co-occurring diagnoses, depression, anxiety, PTSD and other trauma-related disorders, anger, and relational issues. I also have an interest in working with the LGBTQ community.
I have been trained in Trauma Informed Care and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), a therapy used to process current and/or past trauma and reduce the effects it has on your life. I also use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), mindfulness, and strength-based approaches with my clients.
I received my master’s degree in Mental Health Counseling from the University of Northern Iowa and I’m a National Certified Counselor.
I accept Wellmark/BCBS (but not the Mercy/CHI/ Value Plan) and out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, Aetna, some Cigna plans, Medica Insure and Medica-UHC (but not Medica Inspire by UnityPoint), Optum, UMR, and UHC/UBH. My private pay rate is $160 per appointment.
