I have been with Dakota Counseling Institute since 1993, serving as Clinical Director since 2002. I oversee the clinical aspects of the mental health outpatient program and the Pathway program. I am a graduate of Dakota Wesleyan University (BA 1985) and Central Michigan University (MA 1987). I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, have the endorsement of Qualified Mental Health Professional by the State of South Dakota, and I’m trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).  In addition to my administrative and supervisory duties, I have a small caseload of individual clients, specializing in trauma related issues.
