About My Clients

Many of my clients have been told they are “too much” and struggle with exhaustion as they attempt to meet the expectations of those around them while minimizing their own needs. My clients are looking to tame feelings of anxiety or depression that may come from difficulty focusing or staying grounded in relationships, parenting responsibilities, or relating to career/academic goals.

My Background and Approach

I walk alongside individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, grief, parenting struggles and life transitions utilizing a person-centered approach, to find treatment options that fit your needs. I am an ADHD-Certified Clinical Services Provider and I can help you build the life you desire honoring your strengths, while helping you identify and support your weaknesses. I earned a bachelors degree in social work from Arizona State University in 2004. After gaining years of life and work experience, I earned a masters degree in social work from the University of South Dakota in 2020. I completed a graduate certificate in addiction counseling and prevention in 2022 from the University of South Dakota. I am licensed to practice clinical social work in the state of South Dakota.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

I offer a supportive space where you can explore options and make choices that are best for you and your healing journey. We can utilize traditional talk therapy or access the midbrain with Brainspotting and Somatic techniques. Integrating several therapeutic approaches has led my clients to their unique path of healing.
