Education

Ph. D in Advanced Studies of Human Behavior- Capella University (In Progress)

Clinical Approach

I graduated from Viterbo University in 2015 with a Masters of Science in Mental Health Counseling. I am currently completing my Ph.D. in Advanced Studies of Human Behavior at Capella University. I have a passion for working with others to assist them in living “their best life”. I have been blessed to have a wide range of experience including working with parents with custody and placement issues, addictions, court systems and jail population, Alaskan Natives, children, adults, and military members and their families. I am experienced in individual, group, couples, and family therapies as well as psycho-educational groups.

I use an integrated approach to therapy which has a foundation in client-centered therapy. This means we will work together to develop a tailor-made plan just for you. I believe in working alongside each other as a team. This is your time and your plan. I believe most people will say I have a gentle demeanor and a caring personality. I want all my clients to have a positive experience in therapy and feel comfortable sharing their cares, concerns, and dreams.

In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and dogs hanging out at the house, the camper, or riding the ATV/UTV trails.
