I grew up in Minnesota and attended undergrad at the University of Minnesota with a B.A. in Child Psychology. After graduation, I moved to a small town in Iowa. I worked in the health and wellness field before going back for my masters. While in school for my counseling degree, I was working in a social worker role as at-risk youth specialist, assisting struggling students and families. I gained experience in trauma, addiction, social and academic issues. I earned my Masters in Counseling from Drake University in 2014, specializing in school and mental health counseling. I completed three internships, two in schools and one in a mental health facility. Once I graduated, I relocated with my family to the great state of Texas. I spent two years working with adults in substance abuse treatment before going into private practice. Throughout my experience I have gained the necessary skills to work with trauma, mood disorders, addiction, family and relationship issues. I have an interest in the holistic approach and often combine my background in health and wellness when treating clients. I have worked with a variety of individuals that has allowed me to grow as a clinician. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages and mental health needs.
