I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker (LISW) with over 7 years experience as a therapist.
I received my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Northern Iowa, specializing in Trauma-Informed Care. I’ve provided mental health therapy in a variety of settings, including inpatient mental health hospitals, medical clinics, community mental health agencies, private practices, substance abuse treatment facilities, crisis phone hotlines, and non-profit organizations for victims of sexual assault.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and have my Victim Counselor Certification. Although I'm trained in a variety of approaches, I view each client as unique in their needs, preferences and goals.
