Work History

I am a licensed school counselor in Nebraska and a provisionally licensed mental health therapist in Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri, a telehealth practitioner in Idaho, and am a Nationally Certified Counselor. My clinical practicum and internships gave me a variety of experiences with substance abuse, attachment and trauma, career/professional development, and more. I served as the school counselor for Central Park Elementary in Omaha for two years before deciding to join The Cord: Where Science Meets Connection and be part of their Council Bluffs team in 2021. I see clients in person and virtually as an independent contractor at The Cord. I am interested in working with individuals of all ages, backgrounds, and experiences. I specialize in emotion training, social-emotional learning, professional/career development, anxiety, depression, and attachment and trauma issues.
