As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), my practice is rooted in a compassionate, strength-based, and goal-focused approach. For over 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with many diverse populations while helping individuals, couples, and families navigate through many of life's challenges. My expertise lies in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, anxiety, depression, addiction, and trauma. My journey as a therapist has been guided by a commitment to understanding each client's unique experiences and strengths. I believe in creating a supportive and nonjudgmental environment where clients feel safe to explore their thoughts and emotions. I empower my clients to overcome their challenges and achieve their personal goals by focusing on individual strengths. My goal-focused approach ensures that therapy is structured and purposeful, with clear objectives and measurable outcomes. Throughout my career, I have continually sought to expand my knowledge and skills to provide the best possible care. I integrate evidence-based practices and tailor my therapeutic interventions to meet each client's specific needs. Whether working with someone struggling with the complexities of ADHD, the overwhelming nature of anxiety, the grip of addiction, the deep wounds of trauma, or the heaviness of depression, my approach remains consistent: compassionate, client-centered, and dedicated to fostering resilience and healing.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with many years of experience helping people, mostly adults. I love helping people. It is such a privilege to participate in your care. I am the 'original' judgement free zone (before that other company chose that phrase; you know the one). I am a mid-westerner, and bring my midwestern sensibilities to my approach. Our relationship is collaborative and supportive. I encourage you to be an active participant in understanding yourself better from the inside out, your triggers, strengths, and past successes; to develop and strengthen your inner resources; I am creative in my thinking, and encourage you to consider the same: reading books, creating affirmations, drawing, etc.. Patience is required (of which I have much), while I serve as a container for unpacking and exploring your thoughts, feelings, beliefs and life experiences which are interfering with your growth. I do not choose your goals or make decisions for you as I cannot live your life for you. When I am not working, I enjoy knitting. "We do not harvest our inner crop on the same day we plant the seed"
