I have been interested in a helping profession since I was a child. I first went to school for nursing, and then found social work with an addiction and psychology specialty was more my calling. I am motivated in helping to support individuals in achieving their life goals and transitions as well as overcoming obstacles for a greater overall well-being and improved quality of life. 

I have worked with children and adults in a variety of service settings including in office and in-home as well as practice in a rural area. I have a master’s degree in Social Work with minors in Chemical Dependency and Psychology from the University of North Dakota. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Addiction Counselor in both North Dakota and Minnesota. I am a licensed clinical supervisor with the North Dakota Board of Addiction Counselors. I am also a certified EMDR therapist working with trauma as well as addiction being a specialty area of practice. I work now primarily with adolescents 13 and older, as well as adults including elderly. I am also a hospital consultant for First Step Recovery in which I provide chemical dependency consultation/assessments in the Sanford Hospital for patients who are inpatient and may benefit from chemical dependency services.

I have worked both inpatient and outpatient mental health, dual diagnosis (mental health issues and addiction issues) and chemical dependency services. I was the program director for Sister’s Path, a residential treatment center for mothers who resided there with their children, from 2008 to 2010. 

I have also been an adjunct professor for UND since 2014 as well as for Minnesota State University Moorhead for since 2015. I am currently teaching the Substance Use course at UND.
