I am a licensed independent social worker (LISW). I hold undergraduate degrees in business administration and psychology from Iowa State University as well as a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Iowa and an advanced residency focused on personality structure. I work with individual adults, couples and families on a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship conflict and stress management. With a special interest in personal growth and building healthy relationships, I enjoy helping clients embrace their authenticity and create lives that reflect their values and passions.
I have specialized training in Gottman Marital Therapy, sex therapy, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Existential Psychotherapy. I strive to incorporate a broad range of therapeutic modalities to best suit the needs of my clients.
I approach therapy with empathy, warmth, directness and humor. I am an active therapist, providing clients with the honest feedback they seek.
In my free time, I enjoy running, art, documentary films and reading.
