Licensed Master of Social Work
COMING SOON - JUNE 2023
Master of Social Work (MSW) - University of Iowa
I received a master’s degree in social work from the University of Iowa. I have 7+ years of experience counseling and working with young adults, adults, and children. I also have experience utilizing various therapeutic modalities including but not limited to: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Anxiety, Codependency, Coping Skills, Depression, Grief and Loss, Life Transitions, Peer Relationships, Personal Growth, Relationship Issues, Self-Esteem, Spirituality, Stress, Trauma & PTSD, and Work-Life Balance.
After working in the healthcare field for 19 years, caring for people in some of the most vulnerable seasons of life, I made the decision to go back to school to become a mental health therapist. I view my job as a sacred task. Meeting with a stranger and revealing the core of who you are can be very intimidating. I work hard to create a safe, trusting, and accepting environment where you feel permission to be fully yourself. The foundation of my work is the relationship that I have with you, the client. I do not have a one size fits all approach, but I meet you where you are in your personal journey of healing. If faith is important to you, I am happy to incorporate that into our work.
