About My Clients

My clients are unique - each with their own story and way of living, loving, believing, and moving through the world. MANY individuals struggle with emotional health on a daily basis. Often times, those struggles are intensified by previous experiences (hello, trauma!) or beliefs about themselves that seem to get in the way of health or personal success. I'm able to work with you to help figure out the ways in which you want to sore, and to heal from the things that may be weighing you down.

My Background and Approach

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from NDSU and a Master of Social Work from the University of Wisconsin Madison. I specialize in working with survivors of trauma, and those struggling with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem. I am trained in Trauma Focused- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), both of which are used to treat a wide range of emotional challenges, including (but certainly not limited to) Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Major Depressive Disorder. I have also been trained in ASIST, which allows me to help clients obtain safety when experiencing suicidal thoughts or behaviors. My approach to therapy is casual! I have a therapist of my own, and I believe in a therapeutic relationship that is unpretentious and friendly. My hope is that individuals find a therapist that feels like the right fit for them, whomever that therapist may be.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have a strong passion for holistic wellness, and even a little "woo woo" from time to time. I would love to incorporate your spirituality into treatment. I believe that "weird" is beautiful. I believe that Black lives matter. I believe in compassion first, and always. I believe in protecting sacred, Indigenous land and peoples. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally. I am an advocate for social and racial justice. I LOVE my pitbull, Zoey, especially on the days she participates in session as my co-therapist! I believe that we all come from various walks of life and are shaped by our experiences, and I value individual differences and celebrate the quirks and oddities that make us all unique. If you are thinking I may be a fit for you, send me a message. Let's chat!
