About My Clients

I specialize in working with teen girls and women aged 13 and older who are struggling with trauma & PTSD; self-esteem & body image; work, school, & relationship stress; depression & anxiety; perfectionism; codependency & boundaries; and women's Issues.

My Background and Approach

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.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The stress of being a woman in today’s society is significantly overlooked. We’re expected to excel in school, have successful full-time careers, raise a family, keep the house clean and the pantry stocked, prepare daily homecooked meals, keep up with society’s ever-changing standard of “beauty,” exercise and eat healthy, maintain a close group of friends, have strong and intimate relationships with our partners, and prove it all on social media. We do all this while battling intrusive thoughts of perfectionism, low-self worth, poor body image, and never-ending guilt. We’re told to hold in and hide our stress while keeping a smile on our face. Even when we feel like we’re drowning and there’s nothing left of us to give, we continue to put everyone else first. The pressure and expectations of us are endless, and let’s not forget the perpetual sexual, emotional, and physical violence we experience that is often ignored.
