As a graduate with a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of South Dakota, I am passionate about working with individuals in high pressure careers and those dealing with stress and trauma. While completing an APA-accredited internship at the Bay Pines VA Medical Center in St. Petersburg, Florida, I obtained specialized training in anxiety and trauma and helped individuals in outpatient and residential treatment settings.
After completing the doctoral internship, I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Hennepin Healthcare working with individuals impacted by intense stress, cumulative trauma, and high pressure careers. I’ve also worked in several large VA Medical Centers, obtaining the most up-to-date evidence-based trainings.
I have served as a strong advocate on several boards, including the Minnesota Psychological Association Executive Committee, Board of Directors of the Society of Clinical Psychology of the American Psychological Association, and the Early Career Psychologist and Graduate Student Representative to the Board of Directors.
