I am a Licensed Independent Social Worker with a master's degree in social work from the University of Iowa. My professional experience includes working with a variety of people with a range of goals and life issues . I started Connections Family Therapy in 2011. Building this business has helped me be able to focus more on my clients individual needs and at the same time be able to put more focus on my own family.
Currently, I enjoy working with clients with techniques such as NET and CRA to help people discover how they can be at their best physically, emotionally and spiritually.
