Andrea was born and raised in Des Moines, Iowa. She attended Iowa State University where she played soccer and received a B.S. in Elementary Education. After completing her undergraduate degree, she obtained an M.S. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of Arkansas.

Andrea has experience working with college students, athletes, young adults, and the LGBTQIA+ population through coaching, higher education, inpatient mental health treatment, and community mental health settings. She looks forward to working with adults of all ages, especially those navigating life transitions. Andrea strives for her office to be a safe and welcoming space while providing affirming therapy to LGBTQIA+ persons.

Building and maintaining a trusting relationship with clients is central to Andrea’s practice. She pictures therapy as a journey where she walks alongside the client – going at their pace, empathizing, and truly learning what their experience is like. Although she utilizes CBT and Solution-Focused Interventions frequently, Andrea also believes understanding and processing the past plays an important role in healing.

Andrea resides in Springdale with her wife, Emily, three dogs, Rosie, Muffet, and Huck, and cat, Oliver. In her free time she enjoys hiking, kayaking, drawing, and watching sports.
