Counselor, PhD, NCC, LPCC-S
I grew up in a small North Dakota community, and have always valued my connection to rural ways of life. I am delighted to be able to offer quality mental health services; look forward to providing services in rural areas where access to counseling services has not always been readily available.
I began my clinical practice in northern New York after earning a Master's degree in college/agency counseling from the State University of New York - Plattsburgh in 2002. later completed my PhD in Counselor Education and Supervision( NDSU 2015) while continuing my clinical practice. I am a National Board Certified Counselor (NCC) since 2002 and have attained the highest level of licensure, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in North Dakota. Additionally, I am a North Dakota Credentialed Clinical Supervisor.
During my early clinical career, I worked in local non-profits providing services to adolescents, couples, individuals and families while also providing counseling groups for at risk youth struggling with anger and body image concerns. Additionally, I spent five years working to support patients and families who were experiencing acute mental health crises and who were entering the mental health system via the emergency care center. My last decade of service has focused on working with individuals pursuing higher education degrees and presenting with a wide range of concerns from life transitions to acute mental health concerns. Additionally, I have a passion for education and have been a counselor educator since 2006, specializing in courses related to trauma, acute mental health conditions, and multicultural concerns.

Personally, I am most at home in nature in the company of animals and my family. I enjoy competing in competitive canine events with our family dogs including agility and obedience and volunteering in our community as a Pet Partners registered volunteer therapy team.
