I have practiced for more than twenty five years in a variety of therapeutic settings. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of South Dakota and a Masters of Science Degree in Counseling and Education from Northern State University. I have served on the South Dakota NAMI Board, Advisory Council for South Dakota Advocacy Services, and other state organizations, striving to improve the level of services available while removing the stigma of mental health. My goal is to help restore your hopes and dreams for your future and begin a journey to healing and satisfaction in your life.
Life can bring upon stressors and trauma that seem impossible to overcome. It may make you feel overwhelmed, defeated, anxious and scared. Counseling can help make these difficult emotions and situations less daunting.
I have experience working with individuals of all ages and backgrounds. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor of Mental Health and am trained and certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I utilize a variety of therapy approaches to help those struggling with depression, anxiety, ADHD and behavioral concerns, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and trauma response, physical/sexual/emotional abuse at any age, life transitions, parenting concerns, and family therapy.
My goal is to inspire you to continue on your journey, even when you feel like giving up, until you reach your destination goal. If you would like a partner to join and help you through your life journey, please give me a call today.
