Licensed Independent Social Worker
Master of Arts, Social Work - University of Iowa
I have been working with individuals and families within a therapeutic setting for the last several years. My experience has come from residential settings, schools, and in outpatient capacities.
My areas of interest and strengths include improving confidence, behavioral concerns, life transitions, anxiety disorders, depression, relationship issues, family issues, work problems, trauma, and assisting in achieving personal goals. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families.
I believe that therapy should be provided in an environment that emphasizes a safe and trusting relationship. I approach each client from an individualized viewpoint, and take special care to emphasize client’s personal strengths and resources in order to aid them in addressing their goals related to the therapeutic process. I work with children, adolescents, adults, and families and do so using a number of different approaches. These include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, EMDR, trauma focused interventions, play therapy techniques, and always approach sessions through a client centered, strength based lens.
