Credentials: MSW, LICSW
Office or Location: Upsala and Swanville Schools
Hire Year: 2016
Trained in: Currently I am trained in MAP, EMDR and TF-CBT.
I work with kids of all ages from 6-18 in the school setting.
There are so many things that I like about this job! It is so nice to be able to work close to home and in a small community where kids otherwise wouldn’t have local access to mental health services. I like the flexibility in my schedule, allowing me to work part time and take time off as needed to meet the needs of my own family. Being in two k-12 schools allows me to work with such a variety of students, which is really my favorite part.
Northern Pines has been my home since I was an intern in graduate school. This company has allowed me to grow and seen me through the adventures of life both personally and professionally. I love that it offers room for growth and change, it supports the learning of its staff and puts family first.
Likes or hobbies: In my free time I love to spend time with my kids, cruising the aisles of Target (hopefully without my kids) and spending as much time outdoors as possible, regardless of the weather!
