I believe therapy is a process that takes effort from both the client and the therapist working together to achieve the client's goals. Through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other therapies, I show my clients how they can replace their current thoughts with more positive and adaptive thoughts, which will change their mood and behaviors. I believe that clients have control of their treatment and can achieve a lot more than they think they can. I will work with clients in providing the skills that will help them achieve their goals.
I am licensed in both Iowa and Nebraska and can diagnose co-occurring disorders. I have experience working with substance use issues, incarcerated individuals, veterans, children, teenagers, adults, couples, trauma and grief. Although I mostly employ CBT, I also offer mindfulness, trauma therapy, grief therapy, parenting skills, communication skills, marriage and family counseling. I am also fluent in both English and Spanish.
I graduated from Bellevue University. But, aside from having a degree, I have a lot of past personal experiences that are similar to my clients. Therefore, I can empathize with many situations and provide a unique perspective to the issues you are dealing with. I hope to meet you soon!
