I graduated from College of Saint Benedict's Bachelor of Social Work program and St. Cloud State University's Master of Social Work program, which has given me insight and perspective in social justice and advocacy. Throughout my experience in college, I was blessed to have my internships at a Level 4 alternative elementary school and in a public K-12 school setting. After graduating, I spent two years working as a school social worker, and pursued further clinical education with a Post-Graduate Certificate in Mental Health Counseling. I have most of my experience helping children, adolescents, and young adults identify and regulate anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, school /college challenges, ADHD, anxiety, mood concerns, stress, trauma, and adjustment. I use a variety of methods in my therapeutic practice based on goals with a focus on cognitive behavioral therapy, eclectic therapy, expressive and play therapies, and mindfulness.
