I received my master’s degree in counseling at Sioux Falls Seminary and completed post graduate studies in mental health counseling at the University of South Dakota. Prior to working in community mental health, I served in the nonprofit sector.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), Licensed Professional Counselor Mental Health (LPC-MH) and Qualified Mental Health Provided (QMHP) with over ten years of experience providing therapy services
On a personal note, I enjoy playing piano and guitar. I am a backpacker, hiker, kayaker and stand-up paddle boarder. I am a small business provider in the community, wife, mom, and puggle-dog wrangler.
