A Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologist for over 25 years.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist practicing for over 25 years, with a focus on working with children, adolescents, and adults on a wide range of issues, including depression, anxiety, attention problems, learning concerns, Dyslexia, and autism. A large part of my practice involves providing neuropsychological evaluations to children, adolescents and adults.
I utilize evidence based treatments such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to people reaching their treatment goals. I have a special interest in providing services to adults who want to help find a work-home-live balance. I also enjoy working with adults who want to improve their parenting and follow their life values.
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology, with emphasis in Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychology from the Oklahoma State University in 2000. I am Board Certified in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology by the American Board of Professional Psychology.. Additionally, I hold a Masters of Science in Education from the University of Eau Claire, and specialize in helping parents and teachers understand the many learning and emotional concerns children experience in their lives.
I completed an APA accredited two-year Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology Internship and Fellowship at Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, and I worked as a Child Psychologist in a hospital setting in St. Cloud, Minnesota for a number of years. Since that time, I have lived and worked as a psychologist in Eastern Iowa for the last 15 years.
I founded Hope Springs in 2009 in order to meet the many needs of children, adolescents, and adults in Eastern Iowa. It was important to be that patients received strong psychological treatments, but also for them to access a place where they are treated warmly and with respect. I have provided supervision for several post-doctoral psychologists and pre-doctoral child psychology practicum students and interns.
