Audrey has a Masters of Counseling from the University of South Dakota and is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. Before opening her own practice Audrey worked in outpatient, academic, and residential settings. She also spent two years working as a State Youth Coordinator for the Iowa National Guard. As such, Audrey has experience and understanding of the unique struggles that are faced by service members, veterans, and their loved ones. Audrey has also presented at multiple professional conferences including the V.A. & IA National Guard Transitions Conference, Iowa Mental Health Counselors Association Annual Conference, and the Youth and Shelter Services, Inc. Annual Risky Business Conference.
Through counseling, Audrey provides a safe, non-judgmental environment to enable clients to develop tools for growth and sustainable change. Understanding that each client is unique and cannot all be served by the same approach, Audrey is trained and efficient in several evidence-based treatment approaches including Cognitive Behavioral, Family Systems, and Solution-Focused therapy.
Audrey's passion to serve others is not limited to her counseling practice. Audrey has raised two service dogs, which were placed with recipients suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder. Audrey is an active member of the National T.T.T. Society. Audrey and her family also serve as a fosters for a local dog rescue and have helped several dogs find their forever homes.
Please note: I do not participate voluntarily in client litigation matters. If I am subpoenaed to appear as a witness or provide records involving a client, I will contact you to discuss the process. Charges associated with preparation, travel, and time I spend in court will be charged at a rate of $300.00 per hour including travel time to and from location. In addition, I do not make custody recommendations.
