Licensed Mental Health Counselor - Iowa
Can assist with: Grief and Trauma, Family Therapy, Child/Adolescent Behavior Issues, Survivors of Domestic/Sexual/Emotional Abuse, Gender Affirmative Care, LGBTQ+ community, Couples Therapy, Anxiety, Depression
I am so mad about providing therapy to children and families, the LGBTQ+ community and survivors of sexual/domestic abuse that I have specialized in these areas. For those seeking gender confirmation surgery and/or hormone replacement, I can provide gender affirmative therapy services. I have experience working with trauma, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, life changes, relationship conflict, couples & other mental health diagnosis. Starting therapy services can be extremely scary, but I work hard to provide a safe, accepting, judgement free & comfortable place for you and/or your family to work through issues, mend relationships, accept yourself & reach your goals.
I am a firm believer that every person is unique & use various treatment methods that are based on the individual's needs & strengths. Some approaches I use are family systems theories, play therapy techniques, person-centered therapy, DBT, CBT & trauma-focused CBT. I am currently working towards play therapy certification.
What you can expect from our time together is to work hard, but laugh often. Life is all about balance after-all.
