I am a life coach and clinical social worker who helps individuals develop into their highest form of emotional wellness.

I bring 30 years of experience to share with my clients on issues related to mental health and wellness. My therapy practice focuses on working with children, adolescents and adults utilizing a wide range of theoretical lenses. Specialty trainings include play therapy, parenting, trauma, anxiety, depression, relationships, and mind-body work. There are two ways to work with me. In my private therapy practice I work with individuals and families ranging in age from 3 through senior years. I accept most major insurances and am licensed in Iowa and Illinois. In my life coaching practice I work with adults who are interested in taking their personal growth to a higher level. Lifewell Coaching is geared to align with your specific goals and desired results. We can explore a range of areas in your life, such as: career, work-life balance, relationships, family, health & wellness, or money mindset. Whether it be to improve self-confidence and communication skills or to reach any goal, I teach my clients the self-awareness tools to put their thoughts and feelings in line with the results they want to accomplish. I am passionate about helping people reach their highest potential. I believe in the power of a positive thought and an open mind.
