About My Practice

I have been practicing as a mental health counselor for over a decade. Prior to practicing in Boise, I earned a Master of Social Work degree from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, currently ranked the number one MSW program in the nation. I worked in St. Louis for two years post graduate as a Clinical Case Manager and counselor. Throughout my career I have worked with numerous populations in a variety of settings.
