**Currently accepting clients** I am proud that my practice is diverse in age and diagnosis. I believe that life is full of possibilities and having the right person as you begin that journey is crucial. People, especially children, process through emotions and events differently and having a flexible approach allows for a smoother transition. I make it my professional goal to meet my clients where they are at, create a safe environment for them to work through the dilemma and emerge with new strength. I promise to work with you, your children, and your family to find, foster, and increase your strengths as a tool to help overcome any challenge.
I’ve been working with children, adolescents, adults, and families in the mental health field in Cedar Rapids for 10+ years. I have experiences with a variety of families from diverse cultures. My qualifications make me effective in my therapeutic work with children. I utilize a variety of approaches guided by training: AutPlay, Adlerian Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, & trauma.
I specialize in working with children ages 3-18 and adults, who are experiencing anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, divorce, separation anxiety, school anxiety & more. I have unique experiences and training to work with children with significant health barriers including cleft-lip & palate, diabetes, birth defects, and I can integrate Christian-based counseling & prayer into my sessions.
