I am a Licensed Professional Counselor - Mental Health and QMHP in the State of South Dakota and a Nationally Certified Counselor through the NBCC. I have a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from a CACREP Accredited program.
Counseling is not just a career for me, it is my passion in life and being a counselor allows me the privilege to work with clients who are struggling. Each day I get to give back to my clients by using my skills, education and knowledge by offering them the opportunity to be heard, gain insight and most importantly make effective changes towards their identified goals.
I work with adults and adolescents. I am trained and skilled at treating most mental health issues. I offer individual, group, and family counseling. I have experience in treating depression, anxiety, bi-polar, mood, adjustment and behavior disorders. I also work with women and teen girls who have experience abuse, trauma, victims of domestic violence or dating violence. Additionally, I work with adolescents to stop self injury.
I use several theoretical orientations including Cognitive Behavioral, Solution-Focused and Rational Emotive Behavioral therapy. My goal is to help you uncover your potential and strengths to reach your life goals.
