Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Master of Science, Couple and Family Therapy - Iowa State University
Bachelor of Science, Psychology - Iowa State University
I received a Master’s degree from the Couple and Family Therapy Program at Iowa State University in 2011, where I also completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology in 2009.
I have direct experience working with adults and children from various racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. I have practiced in a number of settings including community agency, school, and private practice.
Depression, Anxiety, Pre and Postpartum Mood Disorders, Phobias, Relational/Couples Issues, Premarital Issues, Attachment Issues, Stress Management, Life Transition/Phase of Life Issues, Parenting, Infertility, and Personal Growth.
I take an approach to therapy that is based on the premise that people have an innate ability to heal themselves with the support of others. I focus on client strengths and empowerment. The therapy I provide is typically short-term but varies client to client. I am an active therapist who strives to give clients new tools to use in their everyday lives.
I am focused on providing individual, couple, and family therapy. Services I provide include but are not limited to: cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy, attachment therapy, systemic therapy, solution-focused therapy, intergenerational therapy, and motivational interviewing.
