    Hello There:

    It is nice to meet you.

    I have worked in a wide range of therapeutic settings including residential care, group practice, and managing a private practice in the Sioux Falls community. I work with clients affected by depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, life transition, mood and emotional distress. 

    I have specialized training in the following areas: 

         COUPLES –(Emotion Focused Therapy Level  III, Gottman Level II)

         HIGHLY SENSITIVE PERSONS (HSP) 

         COMPASSIONATE INQUIRY TRAINING

         CERTIFIED INTEGRATIVE  NUTRITIONAL MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDER (CINMHP)

         ECOTHERAPY & WILDERNESS THERAPY GUIDE

         PASTORAL CARE PROFESSIONALS 

    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.

    I hope to have the opportunity to work together!
