21 years ago, I met a therapist who helped me change my life and to find contentment within myself. I wanted to give back to others the same gift I received of serenity and acceptance. I enjoy watching clients gain insight into themselves and make changes. My personality keeps the group light practicing social interactions and showing compassion meeting the client where they are and supporting clients. My clinical focus includes acceptance and self-awareness. I have specialty training and certification in military and PTSD, grief, and trauma. I have worked with adults who struggle with substance use and mental health concerns for 16 years. I attended the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks and the University of Minnesota in Crookston.
