My Approach to Helping

My approach to therapy is egalitarian, Evidence-based and trauma-informed. When we meet you will find that I am approachable, mature and helpful. My purpose is to help you reach your goals that we establish together. My 10 years of experience as a licensed therapist, Clinical Director and owner of an outpatient treatment center have taught me to meet my clients where they are at and focus on the goals they have identified. I am experienced in treating children with Evidenced-based modalities such as; Adlerian play therapy, teens with a good dose of humor and Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and other approaches like Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing to help you process trauma, when needed, and All ages, including adults, with a combination of Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy and EMDR for trauma, as needed, will help you or your family member reach their therapy goals. I am on most insurance panels and am available to see you, your family or your child in our new offices in the West Towers building in West Des Moines.
