“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection.” – Brene Brown
There are times in ALL of our lives when we need some extra support. During those times, it may feel scary and isolating to do our best in staying afloat. I am able to offer a nonjudgmental and compassionate space to work collaboratively with you to weather the storm.
I could be on the shore directing you on where to go or in the lighthouse shining a light on the hazards; however, I choose to be on your boat, with you, working together on the journey towards mental wellness. Together, we’ll identify the right path, manage the hazards, and get you back on shore feeling grounded in life again.
I received my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of South Dakota and my master’s degree in family studies and human services with a specialization in marriage and family therapy at Kansas State University in 2017.
I prefer to provide services within rural communities as I was raised on my family farm in South Dakota. The majority of my hobbies are centered on learning, experiencing other cultures, and being outdoors. I am grateful to be able to call Montana Western my new home because of the rural community, opportunity to work with students with a variety of different cultural backgrounds, AND I get to wake up to the Big Sky every day!
