My purpose is to treat you holistically and pay attention not just to the mind, but also to how your present issues are connected with your body and your spirituality.
I am licensed by the state of Wisconsin as a Professional Counselor, a Substance Abuse Counselor and also as a Registered Nurse. My vast experience as an outpatient therapist and as a charge nurse at the University of Wisconsin Hospital inpatient psychiatry department has solidified my knowledge of both acute and chronic mental illness, physical illness and medication used to treat them.
I am experienced in helping people who are having problems adjusting to life issues and changes. My practice includes adolescents, adults of all ages and couples. I am skilled at treating depression, drug and alcohol problems, women’s issues, grief, relationship changes, anxiety, anger, loss, job stress and coping issues. I can help you examine your life to change whatever is not working. I believe in the human ability to heal and am readily willing to work with you when you want to make changes in your life.
