Building a community at CARE is my passion and driving force each day as the CEO. I wholeheartedly believe that providing the team at CARE with exceptional training, smooth, well thought out processes, clear expectations, ample support, flexibility, good benefits, and the best group of clinicians in the state, they will undoubtedly provide the best services possible to support our community at large.
Like everyone, I have multiple roles and identities that intersect and inform my work. I’m a proud female business owner, mom, boss, wife, friend, psychologist and so much more. I lead by example by authentically showing up, being transparent, and inspiring growth, learning, and humility. I’m honored to get to work with such an incredible group of professionals and look forward to our continued growth of our team knowing we’re creating an unparalleled professional experience while supporting thousands of people in our community.
Although my focus at CARE is on being a thoughtful, supportive leader to inspire growth and professional development; I also continue to see a small caseload of clients and supervise a few doctoral level clinicians. This brings me balance, fills my cup, and grounds me in the clinician, supervisee, and client experiences at CARE.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology at the University of Minnesota and my Master of Arts and Doctorate at the University of Saint Thomas in Counseling Psychology. My practica experiences were at Ramsey County Mental Health Center, Relate Counseling Center, and the Clinic for Attention, Learning, and Memory (CALM). I completed my pre-doctoral internship and my post-doctoral fellowship at Washburn Center for Children.
