I am a Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker. I received my Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Kansas in 2006. Before being in private practice, I worked in community mental health with adults with severe and persistent mental illnesses and am able to provide assistance around navigating complex systems such as Medicaid/Medicare benefits, other insurance issues, legal documentation, home healthcare and other medical/mental health issues. I specialize in working with adults, specifically in the areas of life transitions and aging, chronic illnesses, couples and individuals struggling with infertility issues and families impacted by children with special needs, specifically Autism Spectrum Disorders. I have experience in the areas of military social work and working with military families.
