I have been working in the mental health field since 2009. The primary counseling theory I like to use is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy but I include other theories and techniques as they fit for each individual client such as play therapy and mindfulness. I work with very young children up to adults with a variety of life struggles. I believe what every client needs is different and I am ready to meet you where you are at.
I have been working at Kayres Counseling LLC since 2014. I earned my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with a concentration in AODA from UW-Stout. I received my bachelor’s degree in Vocational Rehabilitation December 2012.
I have experience working at Northwest Connections, Stepping Stones, and the Dunn County Veteran’s Office. These experiences have given me the opportunity to learn from several different populations. I worked in adult family homes working with persons’ with disabilities such as traumatic brain injuries, autism, personality disorders, and cognitive delays. I worked in collaboration with the client, law enforcement, hospitals, and families of those in crisis to determine the least restrictive environment to keep the individual safe. In addition to making the Chapter 51.15 approvals we provided outreach and support for clients over the phone.
