I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a masters degree in social work from the University of Iowa. My professional experience includes working with young children through adults, as well as working with couples and families. I started Connections Family Therapy in 2011. The business has helped me be able to focus more on clients individual needs and at the same time be able to put more focus on my own family.
