I am a resident therapist completing my supervised hours in pursuit of my Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensure. At Samaritan, I work as part of the school-based mental health team that provides services to Calumet County school district students as part of THRIVE Calumet. I also offer telehealth care to other Samaritan clients age eight and older. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and my master’s in professional counseling at Grand Canyon University. Previously, I completed my internship with Samaritan, and I am very happy to return for my residency. I believe that people know themselves best, so I collaborate with my clients to identify their strengths so we can work together to overcome difficulties and reach their goals. I help people with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship problems, grief, and other life adjustments. I use a variety of therapeutic techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy. I am originally from La Crosse and now live in Menasha with my husband and three young daughters. I also like to read, go for walks, craft, and listen to podcasts.
