I am a client centered therapist with experience working with children,
adolescents, families, and adults. My goal is to collaborate with you to
create a plan that fits your needs. I strive to create a therapeutic space
that is safe, secure, and supportive to help encourage growth and change.
As a therapist, I firmly believe that there is no such thing as a
'one-size fits all approach' - everyone deserves respect, compassion, and
a therapy plan customized to their unique history and concerns.
Taking that first step in reaching out for help is one of the most
important. But it is not always an easy one. I hope to provide a safe
and compassionate space to begin change in clients lives. I am an
LISW who has worked in different mental health settings for over a
I see a wide range of clients from youth through adults, with a
variety of needs including adjustment issues, anxiety, depression,
behavioral problems, Autism based skill building, and trauma. I work
from a solution focused strength-based approach to assist my clients
in identifying resources and personal attributes that they possess or
can be developed to bring about desired change within themselves,
their relationships, and within the family dynamic.

I obtained my Masters Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from
Grand View University. I work with children, adolescents, and adults, so
you will find that my office consists of many toys and games. I also
spend a lot of time at the gym, so I like to advocate for incorporating
physical activity into daily routines. Incorporating physical movement
in session can be beneficial especially when working with children, but
it is not required.
