I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Iowa, working for over 10 years in my field within the realms of Child Abuse/Neglect, Domestic and International Adoption/Foster Care, Hospital Social Work, Inpatient, Outpatient, and Crisis Therapy. I completed my undergraduate degree from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies and my Master of Social Work degree through the University of Denver. I specifically enjoy working with families, teens, the parent/child relationship, and women during pregnancy and up to a year post-pregnancy.
I absolutely love spending time with my partner and four small children, watching reality tv, trying new restaurants, traveling to new places, and spending time with my friends and extended family. I grew up in Iowa but have also lived in Tennessee and Colorado recently.
