As a marriage and family therapist, I strive to offer you a genuine, empathetic presence and safe space to help you navigate your way towards healing and growth. I see the ways that life stressors, stuck patterns, uncertainty, trauma, and grief impact day to day life.
I believe that change takes place through relationships. I am committed to providing you warmth and support within the therapeutic relationship. Whether we are honoring difficult emotions or sharing a laugh, I strive to always meet you with authenticity and trust through a collaborative approach. I am dedicated to respecting your lived experience, autonomy, and goals for your future.
My clinical areas of expertise include identity development, life cycle transitions, infidelity, men’s mental health, parent-child relationships, and adolescence. I have extensive experience providing services to individuals, couples, and families within education, in-patient substance treatment, residential foster care, and jail-based settings. I completed my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy at Mount Mercy University and am currently pursuing a PhD in Couple and Family Therapy with the University of Iowa. My academic interests include intimacy, identity security, transracial foster-care placement during adolescence, and adult attachment.
It is both an honor and a privilege to join you on your healing journey. Whether you are excited to begin or feeling overwhelmed at the prospect of starting therapy, it is my goal to join you exactly where you are at. Come as you are; I look forward to working with you.
