All About


Hello!  I am a Licensed Masters Social Worker, and I received my bachelor's of social work at Appalachian State University. In addition, I received a Master's of Social Work and a substance abuse certificate from Western Carolina University.  I have worked in mental health and chemical dependency for approximately 20 years.  I have worked in acute care, inpatient substance abuse rehabilitation, and outpatient therapy.  Before relocating to North Dakota, I lived in North Carolina for 30 years. 
I enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQ +; clients who live with depression, anxiety, and trauma.  I have a passion for individuals with dual diagnoses as well. I can work across the life span, such as clients of all ages, couples, and individuals.  I enjoy making the therapy process feel more like a conversation rather than a sterile clinical experience.   I like to design therapy sessions that will be productive and value the client's time.  
I enjoy nature, camping, fishing, photography, and time with my dog in my spare time.  I also enjoy a good conversation over coffee listening to relaxing music.
