Office

I have offices located in Ames (downtown) and Des Moines (Sherman Hill) and available appointments at either location weekly. If you're an existing client and would like to schedule an appointment please click below. If you're a new client please scroll to the bottom of the page.

In-Home (House Call)

I offer house calls as a short-term or “crisis” service. Meaning, I recognize that sometimes an appointment cannot wait (or it’s really impractical when you have a newborn). As a mother, doula, and childbirth professional for the greater part of the past decade I’ve seen (and experienced) a lot when it comes to postpartum experiences. I’m used to seeing new moms (and partners) at home in their pajamas covered in dried breastmilk and spit-up unsure about when they last showered. In fact, I’m not only used to it – I expect it. It is my hope that this service might help bridge the gap for families waiting to be able to attend traditional office visits.

At present, this service is only available to those living in Central Iowa; however, I also offer web-based services farther away. Unfortunately, insurance plans do not cover house call mental health services (I’m working on it); therefore, for now, this service is out-of-pocket.

Web-Based

I am able to provide web-based/telehealth services to Iowa residents (this is a licensing and insurance billing regulation). This is a convenient option for anyone who may have difficulty making it to an office for an appointment or who does not wish to have a house call visit.  

Payment

I am an in-network provider with Wellmark (Blue Cross / Blue Shield), United Healthcare, Medicaid (Iowa Total Care), and Midlands Choice (Medica, Health Partners, Cigna). I submit claims directly to these insurers. As a client, you’ll only be responsible for any copays or deductibles.
