Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor
SUD treatment and treatments off the beaten path so to speak such as equine therapy, horticulture therapy, art therapy, et cetera.
Something I am very passionate about in the SUD treatment field is client centered care. In the last several years I have worked with several different populations including but not limited to: LGBTQ+, survivors of trafficking/exploitation, anishinaabe peoples, at risk youth. In working with diverse populations, I have learned that every client is their own individual person so treatment should be individualized based on the client. I employ motivational interviewing and the bio/psycho/social model as well.
I enjoy spending time with my son and cats. My son has helped me understand patience more than I thought I did. Every day I learn from him as he learns from me. I also enjoy swimming, fishing, cooking, and jigsaw puzzles.
