I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Iowa and a Nationally Certified Employee Assistance Professional. My educational degrees include a Master of Science in Education from Iowa State University majoring in Student Personnel Counseling and Administration. I also have a Master of Science in Education majoring in Mental Health Counseling from Drake University. I have completed two years of Basic and Advanced Clinical Pastoral Education at Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa.
I have been a Counselor with Employee and Family Resources for nineteen years working with individuals, couples and families as they consider their individual growth, making changes to improve their relationships, while identifying and pursing their personal goals.
I enjoy working with individuals and couples. I believe in and practice Choice Therapy and Cognitive Therapy focusing on practical changes one can make. I also appreciate the positive spiritual resources available for each life and respect the values of the people I work with each day.
