- Bethel University: Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy
Professional Experience: When I graduated with my Bachelors of Science degree in Communication Disorders, I worked with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders providing in-home, relationship based interventions. In 2009 I returned to graduate school and received a MA in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2012. Since that time, I have provided individual and family therapy in homes, schools, and outpatient settings. I provide clinical supervision for Clinical Interns, LMFT and LPCC candidates. I provide clinical supervision for county Adult and Children’s Mental Health Case Managers.
Special Interests: I specialize in infant and early childhood mental health and am rostered in Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP). I will complete training in April 2023 for a train the trainer model which will allow for me to train LCFS staff in the CPP model. I also have experience working with children and adolescents who struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, sensory needs, family conflict, child protection/welfare, school issues, and peer and social relationship difficulties. I have been trained in Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) and am working toward certification. Additionally, I provide therapy to adults who struggle with trauma, anxiety, depression, and couples looking to improve their partner relationship.
A Fun Fact About Me: I truly enjoy all the seasons MN has to offer (except for maybe the bitter cold!) and spend as much time as I can outside. I love being active, spending time with my family, and working on projects around the house.
