I specialize in helping people get past their "stuck points".   We all have stuck points and blind spots.  We all do things that cause us to say to ourselves, "I wonder why I did that!"  
I have worked in the mental health field and specifically in the area of trauma since 1997.  All of us have experienced some kind of trauma or neglect in our lives.  That's because we're human. We make mistakes as people, as parents, as imperfect but beautiful beings.  Or maybe it wasn't anything to do with family.  Maybe we become a victim of an accident, crime, a natural disaster, poverty, etc.  This affects how we see and feel the world around us.  It is often the impetus behind any of our behaviors. This can also affect our performance in school, sports, interactions with families and friends.
I have utilized EMDR, Trauma Model therapy, brain spotting, DBT, CBT and Ego state therapies.  I work with children and adults of all ages.  Don't  let your own fears hold you back from reaching your full potential!

I am a licensed mental health and substance abuse psychotherapist. I hold a master’s degree in art therapy and appreciate being able to use alternative methods in fostering overall well-being. I am diligent in understanding research and brain-based practices to promote sustainability. I believe strongly in a systems-approach which looks at both external (family, friends, teachers, caregivers, community) and internal supports to help achieve well-being.
I utilize therapy approaches such as EMDR, ego-state, brain spotting, DBT, CBT, play/art, sandtray to achieve treatment goals for children and adults. 
Thank you for taking the step into a judgment free zone so that you can have your best self!

I feel that therapy is a collaborative process and I enjoy working with my clients to meet their personalized goals. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I look at things from a systemic perspective, which means I take more than just the client into consideration (ie their family, work, school, friends, and greater community) to see how these may be impacting their current challenge. My main focus within the therapy room is to make sure that you feel supported and safe while navigating life's challenges. My style is integrated, using a blend of models to meet each client where they are at and tailor to their specific needs.  I enjoy building up each individuals strengths and seeing them integrate that into their process. 

I enjoy working with children and adults of all ages, couples, & families. I enjoy seeing clients at our office in Ripon, as well as in the Omro and Ripon school districts. I work with a variety of mental health concerns, including relationship difficulties, sexuality and gender, depression, anxiety, body image and self-esteem, and adjustment.

My therapeutic approach involves recognizing and fostering one’s own strengths. We all develop ways of thinking, behaving, and coping to help us survive or reduce pain in certain situations. Problems arise when we continue to use those patterns in situations or at times when they no longer serve us in a healthy way. But change and healing are more than possible- we are hardwired to grow and heal. This is not to say we need to be “fixed,” but rather we can strive for healthier and more useful ways of living with who we are, what we’re facing, and where we are in life. Wherever you are in life and in your process, together we will approach it with dignity, honor, respect, integrity, and ruthless compassion. Keep hope alive, live with humor and humility, and hold fast to your dreams and authentic self.
