About Me

I empower individuals and couples to identify concerns and issues within themselves and their relationships that impede a healthy, productive relationship and lifestyle. I have worked with individuals, children, adolescences, couples, and families since opening my private practice in 2012. Research shows that healthy communication in relationships, as well as balancing body, mind, and spirit substantiate and enhance one’s ability to live a longer, more fulfilling life.

ABOUT ME CONTINUED...

    Active licenses are held in the states of South Dakota and Colorado as a Licensed Practicing Mental Health Counselor. I have continuing education that supports the clinical work I do and continue to strive to implement evidence-based practices and theories. I acquired my Master of Science through South Dakota State University in Counseling and Human Resource Development.

    I provide mental health counseling for Individual adults, children adolescences, families, and couples that suffer from various mental health ailments, relationship complications, and traumatic events. I specialize in mental health diagnosis of depression, anxiety, PTSD, bipolar, and ADHD. I am trained in Child Play therapy to assist children and adolescents in their ability to process their emotions, trauma, divorce, loss, focus, anxiety, and depression. For couples, I am trained in the principles of Gottman Couples Therapy and seek to develop the couples ability to manage conflict, effectively communicate, enhance their marriage, and recover from the aftermath of infidelity. I assist traditional, broken, separating or divorcing, reconciling, and mediating families to process conflict, loss, and change of lifestyles.  

I spend time and energy investing in good physical, emotional, and spiritual self-care. These lifestyle enhancements prove to support my well being and role modeling healthy living to individuals I interact with daily. I continue to be an active member in organizations that enhance my ability to care for mental health, children, and family conciliation matters. I attend church and have spoken in my congregation to help others to learn to develop secure communication and lifestyle that supports the goals they desire.
