Welcome to The Therapy Place of La Crosse, LLC! I am so happy to provide the people of the La Crosse and surrounding areas with an option for counseling in a private, confidential, and comfortable setting. I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Wisconsin with more than 20 years of experience providing outpatient therapy to a variety of people. I graduated in 1993 from Winona State with a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling and I have been working in the evolving field of mental health since that time. I have extensive experience in treating people with eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, relationship issues, women’s issues, parenting, and family problems. There has been so much advancement in knowledge about mental health and treatment in the past decade. It is very exciting to integrate the information on neurobiology, positive psychology, and mindfulness into treatment approaches and watch people achieve stability and satisfaction in their life. I have been trained in and use a variety of therapies based on client need including ACT, EFT, exposure therapy, positive psychology, CBT, and mindfulness. I work with both adolescents and adults individually and in groups. In addition to providing therapy I have experience in teaching workshops and providing training to various groups.
