Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Hiawatha, IA
Supervised by Jess Pladsen, LMFT #000397

About My Clients

Are you queer? Do you have a queer family member, partner, or kid? I provide queer & gender-affirming mental health care, WPATH-based psychosocial evaluations & letters of support, & mental health support to individuals, couples, parents, and families like yours who are often navigating confusing & less than accepting social & care scenarios. Have you experienced trauma? Unfortunately, queer people are more likely to have trauma. I help clients like you process trauma so you can move forward.

My Background and Approach

As a queer person, I know our community has historically been harmed by the mental health field. That's why I use transparent and collaborative postmodern models to provide affirming, trauma-informed, strength-based care. I am a tLMFT in Iowa, and I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP), and Certified Family Trauma Professional (CFTP). I see clients at Prism Therapy Group and, starting fall 2023, the LGBTQ Clinic at the University of Iowa, where I am a Doctoral Candidate in Couple and Family Therapy.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm active in the LGBTQ+ community. I've facilitated a free virtual LGBTQ+ Support Group since 2021 that meets Wednesdays from 4-6:30 PM. I have also: started LGBTQ+ support groups in other locals; been a Transgender Day of Remembrance vigil guest speaker & host; spoken at local schools & colleges; hosted queer cultural competency trainings; published peer-reviewed research centering queer mental health experiences; and more.
