Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor Director of Outreach
For too long addiction and mental health issues have been neglected and stigmatized in our society. I’m trying to do my part to change that.
As a staff counselor and director of outreach at Club Recovery, it is my mission to aid those who are struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues. I hope to achieve this mission through direct counseling work combined with community outreach and education.
I am currently a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) in Minnesota with over 10 years of experience. My experience includes individual, couple, and group counseling in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
In my work with clients, I utilize positive psychology which builds on a person’s strengths as a basis for change. Also, every counseling theory and technique I use is backed by scientific evidence which are known as evidence based therapies.
My specialization is in relapse prevention and healing psychological trauma. I currently hold certifications as a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and Certified Advanced Relapse Prevention Specialist.
Other interests outside of work include: spending time with friends and family, physical fitness, MN sports, grilling, photography, music, movies, yoga, meditation, reading, and the outdoors.
