My employment started at Dakota Counseling Institute in January of 2007. I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor that oversees the clinical aspects of the drug and alcohol program otherwise known as Stepping Stones. I am a 1994 graduate of Dakota Wesleyan University with a degree in Psychology, specializing in Addiction studies. My ties with DWU continue by being an adjunct professor teaching Alcohol Studies and Drug abuse in society. Along with teaching, I supervise interns working towards their degree in the addictions field.
