Welcome! I am an LPC-MH that has been practicing in the Sioux Falls area over the past 5 years. I like to describe myself as a generalist and enjoy working with a wide variety of people and issues. I became a therapist due to my strong desire to help people make meaningful change that will last them a lifetime. My experience during the past 7 years has included working at an inpatient hospital providing both individual and group therapy. After the hospital, I began working at an outpatient clinic where I did both individual and couple’s therapy.
I’ve developed an interest in working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples; providing individual and couples therapy, as well as evaluations for ADHD. My areas of interest include ADHD, developmental disorders, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, life transitions, stress, trauma, addictions, and relationships. I believe in helping people find the tools that fit them best as they strive toward greater understanding and fulfillment in their lives. This allows people to not just get through a difficult situation once, but gives them the skills and abilities to prevent or manage overwhelmingly stressful circumstances. I look forward to walking with you along your path as you take steps towards bettering yourself and achieving a life that is fulfilling to you.
