Licensed Mental Health Counselor
My goal is to support my clients as they cope with life stressors, heal from trauma, and navigate through life changes, while empowering them to reach their personal goals to create a healthier future.
I work with adolescents (12+) and adults. I treat anxiety and panic disorders, eating disorders, depression, grief and loss, family and relationship conflict, stress-related problems, and low self-esteem. I take a unique approach with each of my clients, utilizing a goal-focused and person-centered approach while incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and other evidence-based therapeutic techniques.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Family Studies/Human Development from Arizona State University and my master’s degree in Professional Counseling from Grand Canyon University, where I specialized in treating adolescents and young adults with eating disorders in a residential treatment setting.
I accept Wellmark/BCBS (but not the Mercy/CHI/ Value Plan) and out of state Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, Cigna, Medica Insure and Medica-UHC (but not Medica Inspire by UnityPoint), Optum, UMR, UHC/UBH and Iowa Total Care insurance. My private pay rate is $160 per appointment.
