I specialize in women’s issues, such as Childhood Sexual Abuse, Sexual Assault, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and Post-Partum Depression.  I am also certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for people experiencing trauma. I am experienced in treating depression, anxiety, and other related issues as well.

I received my Bachelor of Social Work degree from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas in 1995 and my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Missouri at Kansas City in 2001. I am currently licensed in the state of Minnesota as a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, and I am a member of the National Association of Social Workers. I have been a volunteer advocate for victims of sexual assault in both Minnesota and Kansas. I have also worked with seniors helping them get the needed resources to safely stay in their homes. I am committed to helping you reach your goals and live a balanced life through listening and collaborating with you on a plan.

I am a mental health practitioner that specializes in homelessness, crisis de-stressing, and re-stabilization. I have experience working with addiction, bipolar, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit hyperactive disorder, anxiety (generalized, social, and panic attacks), depression, and grief. I have worked as a behavioral health technician for multiple treatment facilities and as an Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS) mental health practitioner. Prior to moving to St Cloud, I partnered with Glorybound Ministries for 8 years. Glorybound is a ministry that comes alongside families who have a loved one incarcerated or in treatment due to addiction. While partnering with Glorybound, I obtained my bachelor’s degree in psychology and went on to pursue my master’s degree as a Licensed Professional Counselor Certified (LPCC) through Liberty University. Upon completion of my master’s degree, I will be pursuing dual licensure as an LPCC and LADC (Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor). Most recently, I worked for Place of Hope which is a homeless shelter in the St Cloud area. Currently, I collaborate with Cook’s Counseling Service and Place of Hope to provide counseling services to a population in need of mental health services-the homeless. My hope is to provide Life Recovery Groups as well very soon.  There is hope, you are not alone. 

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
