I have a passion for working with people and believe there is healing power in a person's story. Because I enjoy nature, hiking, kayaking, and camping, I often will use visuals from those experiences in the counseling environment. My desire and motivation for becoming a counselor includes my love for learning and passion for working with people. I am grateful for all who have touched my life over the years.
After completing my undergraduate degree in human services at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D., I continued my education and graduated with a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Sioux Falls Seminary in Sioux Falls, S.D. My experience includes working with children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families on various issues, including grief, trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, and other areas. I provide EAP and insurance-based counseling services in Detroit Lakes and Perham, MN, and EAP counseling in Fargo. I also am able to provide web-based counseling to clients in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
