“I have a passion for helping children and their families find strength, hope and healing.

The focus of my career has been in working with young children and their families who have experienced adversity, stressful and traumatic events.  As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I utilize a family systems approach and attachment theory to help the child and family grow together and find comfort with their relationships.

I earned my Master’s of Science Degree from St. Cloud State University in 2011. Since then, I worked with young children and their families at an outpatient, day treatment program until I joined the team at The Village in 2017.”
