I grew up on a farm in Southwest Minnesota where I learned the importance of working hard. I moved to the Canton area in 2005 after finishing my bachelors degree to work as an Addictions Counselor for adolescents. In 2010 I received my Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from SDSU. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Addictions Counselor, and Qualified Mental Health Professional through the State of South Dakota. I also have a Certified Therapy Dog you might find hanging in the office with me. I’ve always had a passion for helping people. I believe in the importance of investing in oneself because you cannot pour from an empty cup. Life can be challenging and I’d love to walk with you through the tough times. I have experience with adolescents, addiction, couples and families, families affected by addiction, depression, anxiety, miscarriage, grief and loss, trauma, self esteem, and more.
