I grew up in Wolsey, SD and have spent most of my life in the Huron area, which has helped me recognize the need for more mental health providers here. I attended South Dakota State University and received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling. I am also continuing my education to become a Registered Play Therapist. My theoretical approach is integrative as I utilize a variety of interventions to meet the needs of individuals, ranging from person centered therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, trauma-informed techniques, mindfulness approaches, and more. I have experience with a wide variety of individuals, starting from 3 years old through adulthood. Most of my experience involves working with children and teenagers to focus on self-esteem building and navigating everyday life.
In my spare time, you can usually find me watching The Office with my cat Milo or spending time with family and friends!
