I have been working in helping professions for over fifteen years.  I received my BSW in 2002 from the University of Iowa and my MSW in 2005 from St. Ambrose University.  I have extensive experience in healthcare with emphasis on mental health, aging and advocacy for families and individuals navigating illness.  Because of this experience, I also have sensitivity towards those working in healthcare and the unique stressors and challenges they face.  As a lifetime ally of the LGBTQ+ community, I am culturally competent in serving members of the community and their families and welcome it with high regard. Additionally, I love working with seniors and have rich experience with the aging population and caregivers.
I believe that therapy can be transformative and there is nothing I would rather do than help. Reaching out is brave; when you are ready, I am here to start our partnership in your well being.
