About My Clients

I specialize in 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

I am very passionate about women's rights. I'm a strong advocate against rape culture, victim blaming, violence towards women, underrepresentation and unequal pay in the workplace, and overall gender inequality. I understand what it feels like to experience emotional, physical, and sexual trauma, finally gather enough strength to tell someone, and not be believed. I understand the pain of speaking up against workplace sexual harassment and being the one who has to leave their job. I understand the pressures of society to be "perfect" and to keep up with the constantly changing standards of "beauty." I understand how traditional gender roles have told us to be quiet, nonconforming and selfless; always putting other's need in front of our own. Additionally, I am passionate about social causes including BLM, LGBTQ+ rights, access to mental health services, and any forms of oppression.
