My goal as a therapist is to partner with you to help you take ownership of your journey and empower you on your road to healing.

Every life is a story…Like any good book, the protagonist faces plot twists and unforeseen events. When the plot twists and the unexpected events come to your own story, they can become difficult to overcome.

When walking toward goals in life, individuals, couples and families often encounter challenges that can be difficult to manage and that create conflict.

En el proceso terapéutico, es un esfuerzo de equipo entre mi cliente y yo para trabajar juntos para alcanzar sus metas.

Entiendo cosas pasan en la vida y cada uno tiene sus luchas. No hay ninguna vergüenza en pedir ayuda a los demás.
My passion is supporting families of adoption and the treatment of domestic violence perpetrators. My daughter and I are adopted. It is hard to find an adoption-competent therapist who understands that love is a great place to start, but it’s not enough. I work with families to sit in the trenches with their kids and help lift them up and out. My other area of interest involves leading court-mandated therapy groups for domestic violence perpetrators. I was struck by how many had also been victims themselves. My goal is to get to that root, the reason they believe it’s okay to treat another person that way, and that’s where we start to make progress. I am also accepting traditional therapy clients who are experiencing anxiety, depression, relationship problems, stress, grief, and other issues.
I earned my undergraduate degree in criminal justice from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and am currently enrolled in a master’s program in professional counseling at Grand Canyon University. I worked on behalf of children in international orphanages and within her church’s youth ministry programs. Originally from La Crosse, I now live in Menasha with my husband and daughter. I also likes to read, go for walks, craft, and listen to podcasts. I will be with Samaritan until July to learn and participate in co-therapy sessions as part of my internship.
As a resident mental health therapist, I work with clients with a variety of mental health concerns, who come from diverse backgrounds, and all walks of life. I believe it is important to honor the inherent dignity and worth of each individual client. I seek to support client self-determination as I help clients find their voice. My strengths-based approach empowers clients to explore outside-of-the-box solutions to facilitate their recovery, healing and growth. I see children 6 years old and up, adults, couples and families. My background includes working with children, adults and families through the county Child Protective Services and Juvenile Justice Systems. In addition, I have also served the community through area non-profits focused on serving runaway and homeless youth and their families. I have specific training and experience serving survivors of Human Trafficking and currently participate in a multi-disciplinary community response team combatting these issues within in our community.
