I am a licensed therapist in both Iowa and Wisconsin (LISW & LCSW) 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, emergency departments, 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 Brief Therapy (SFBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Although I'm trained in a variety of approaches, I view each client as unique in their needs, preferences and goals.
