Integrated Care During Medical Appointments.

WHAT WE DO

- Behavioral Health Screenings
- Brief Consultations during Medical Exams
- Traditional Counseling and Therapy

Despite the complexity of people’s lives, health care typically responds with fragmented services. At LCHC, we recognize a person is unlikely to make changes to their diet, exercise regularly, or follow their prescriptions if they're suffering from untreated anxiety, depression or substance abuse.

Counseling and medication can help. Sometimes, changes in behaviors by the individual or family and changes in thinking can help people better cope with chronic medical conditions.

Take a free screening to help you determine if your recent thoughts or behaviors may be associated with a common, treatable mental health issue. Online screening courtesy of Mental Health America in Sheboygan County.

My greatest reward as a therapist is helping my patients explore ways to facilitate positive change in their lives. I provide a warm, nonjudgmental environment -  a safe place to explore the issues that may be deterring you from living the life you want.

I enjoy spending my time with friends and family, whether it is outside or up at our cottage!

I was originally born in Virginia, but my family moved to Wisconsin when my dad retired from the military. My husband and I enjoy country living just outside of Fond du Lac.

I previously worked in child welfare for several years and participated in various internships, including medical social work, school-based mental health counseling, domestic violence advocacy, and a nursing home.

I enjoy reading, watching TV, traveling, and being outdoors to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather (for the brief period of time it comes to Wisconsin). I have a bucket list of travel destinations in the US & internationally, that I have started crossing off slowly, but surely.

I'm originally from Green Bay and moved to Manitowoc in 2017. My previous experience includes working with populations experiencing homelessness, substance use treatment, juvenile justice and program development.
