Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Licensed Independent Mental Health Practitioner
I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and licensed independent mental health practitioner who approaches work with adults, children, and families through a psychodynamic, trauma-informed lens. I value the vastly unique experiences and inherent complexity of all people. I believe in the importance of listening carefully and allowing my clients to teach me who they are throughout the process of participating in therapy. I aim to create a safe, trusting space where parts of the self can be explored, experienced and understood.
I am honored to provide therapeutic services to the people of Grand Island and surrounding communities.
