My Approach to Helping
I have the goal to create an understanding and caring environment for every person that walks in the door. I help my clients see the different paths available to them to better understand themselves and get the enjoyment out of life that they deserve.
I offer services to adolescents and all ages of adults. Therapy should not be “cookie cutter,” but should take all areas of the individual into consideration. I look at whole body health, specifically for anxiety, depression, grief, and life transitions. I am especially skilled at working with:
Holistic Therapy: Our physical health can greatly impact our mental health, and vice versa. We can be suffering from depression and feel low and fatigued. Your ability to complete everyday tasks don’t have to be impacted because I use a custom plan to ensure you regain control of your life.
Women and Pregnancy: There is a lot unsaid about pregnancy and birth. The unknowns and surprises of body changes and mood changes can put a strain on your mental health. I am here to not only support you through this big change but guide you to answers for your questions for pregnancy and postpartum.
Phobias: Anxiety can create phobias, or irrational fears, for parts of life that are unknown. I understand the intensity of the phobias and want to ensure you start to reclaim your life. I know fears such as emetophobia, agoraphobia, and germaphobia.
Health has always been important to me. Learning how psychological, behavioral, and cultural aspects of our everyday contribute to physical health and illness are key as these to some degree affect us all.
I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology from Carroll University in Wisconsin and my master’s degree from the Chicago School of Professional Psychology, with an emphasis in health psychology. Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, exercising, baking, and crocheting.
