Lydia Mossman, LISW
Lydia graduated with a Master of Social Work from the University of Northern Iowa. She provides therapy for adults and children 12 years and older with a broad range of mental health needs. She has special interests in trauma, depression, anxiety, and working with people struggling with relational conflicts and life transitions. She has advanced training in EMDR, CBT, and DBT.

Lydia believes that what makes the practice unique is they are person centered driven practice, with empathy regard for the patients and their strengths and problems.  With seeing a patient as a patient and not a diagnosis, she believes this is the best way to keep treatment patient focused.  Outside of work Lydia enjoys being outdoors, doing yoga and volunteering in the community. What Lydia would like her patients to know about her is the she is constantly amazed by the strengths of her patients, and how they overcome adversity. It is a huge privilege and honor to do her job and work with her patients, she does not take this privilege lightly.


Jessica Targoff, LISW
Jessica graduated with a Master of Social Work from the Silberman School of Social Work at City University of New York.  She provides therapy for adults and children 12 years and older with a broad range of mental health needs. She has special interests in anxiety, depression, mood disorders, PTSD/trauma, LGBTQ, substance use and addiction, self-esteem issues, stress reduction, and guilt/shame resiliency. She has had training in CBT, DBT, and ACT. 

Jessica feels the clinic is able to hit all different aspects and personalities while keeping the smaller and personal feel. "We are able to see a broad range of people and different age groups, where we all have different personalities that will make it easy to have somebody that will work well with any patient."  Jessica's main concern is to make everyone feel welcome and safe to share life stories.  Outside of work Jessica enjoys traveling to the ocean, bike riding, reading and playing with animals.  She has also volunteered with Holocaust survivors in New York and Veterans at the VA in Des Moines. Jessica would like her patients to know "I am interested in your stories, and I want to help guide you in the direction they need to accomplish their goals while feeling comfortable when you first walk through the doors."
