My Areas of Practice
I have spent several years in the field working to find ways to help people find relief from mental health symptoms.  I believe in creating trusting relationships with clients through genuine presence.  I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for the treatment of emotion dysregulation and have completed the first two levels of Sensorimotor Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma and developmental trauma.  I enjoy working with a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, PTSD with or without dissociation, and Borderline Personality.

I was born and bred in Nebraska, which makes me a die-hard Husker fan.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and love watching my daughter grow.  My friends are a big part of my self-care, and I keep in touch with my family back home.  I like to watch and play volleyball and will continue to play the position of middle hitter until my body no longer agrees to do it.
