My Approach to Helping
I offer compassion and support while challenging you to try out different ways of thinking, feeling, and acting. I will help you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and explore different options to facilitate meaningful change in your life. My goal is to empower you to move toward the life you want, including developing a balance of responsibilities (workschoolfamily, etc.), play (recreationfunhumor), and meaningful connections.
As a Licensed Psychologist and Health Service Provider in the state of Iowa, I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing difficulties with anxiety, irritability, depression, relationships, or family-of-origin, including painful or traumatic experiences from the past.
A good fit between client and therapist is important to the process of therapy, so I offer a free 10-15 minute phone consultation for you to get a sense of whether I would be a good fit for you. I look forward to hearing from you!
