Mental Health Professional
I have worked in the mental health field/human services for over 15 years. I was an Early Childhood Teacher for 5 years. Then, I decided to go back to school and change directions to mental health. I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Bemidji State University in 2015 and Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adler Graduate School in 2022, currently pursuing my LPCC licensure.
Through the 15+ years that I have worked in the mental health field, I have held many positions and acquired a variety of experiences including youth counselor, case manager, behavior analyst, mental health program director, program coordinator, behavior modification assistant, etc. I have worked with all ages from 0-99 which has rounded my experience and given me the opportunity to find my niche/passion. In my free time I enjoy participating in activities that involve the outdoors/nature, hiking, traveling, spending time with loved ones, volunteering, etc.
