This picture is the best representation of what I do every day :) You come in with some amount of tangled up thoughts, plans, feelings, and situations. I will do my best to help make sense of them!
My private practice is located in downtown Hartland, and I look forward to you coming in! I believe that most clients aren't as interested in my education from long ago, as they are in the experience they will have when they walk in my door. I do have a Masters Degree and am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, but I am mostly a mom & wife, and a therapist running my own practice, which I have done for the past ten years.
After working at a non-profit agency in Colorado for several years which focused on family therapy, I made the leap into private practice in early 2010. It was scary, but empowering. I had always been an employee, but I love the freedom of being able to be creative in how I work with clients in ways that work for both of us.
Many of my clients are interested in wellness, and my love for health and wellness has been a great fit. I recently completed a certification in holistic psychotherapy, and often work with clients on overall health as a large part of mental health. My ideal client will be willing to make changes to their lifestyle to support emotional health.
I like to discuss themes and concepts in session and try not to get stuck in the weeds of any particular situation. I believe we all struggle with certain patterns, and I wish for clients to apply larger concepts to a variety of situations in which they find themselves stuck. Let's work together on shifting your thinking!
