The purpose of this statement is to provide information regarding my professional background and counseling philosophy to assist in your decision and commitment to the psychotherapeutic process. 

               I received my Bachelor’s degrees in Sociology and Social & Criminal Justice from Montana State University in 1991.  I received my Master’s degree in Counseling from Chadron State College in 1994.  I have been licensed since 1995 and have retained licensure continuously.  This licensure, as well as my Master’s degree signify that I meet the professional and ethical standards for providing independent psychotherapy services.

               The specific type of counseling and therapy I provide will be based on your individual needs.  I am a holistic therapist and subscribe to my Native American Forefather’s belief that all things are connected.  I work with adults, children, and families to assist them in bringing their lives into harmony.  I frequently use cognitive/behavioral, play therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing).  I specialize in family counseling, crisis intervention, multi-cultural topics, lifestyle issues, Pathological gambling treatment, HIV/AIDS, debriefing, and attachment.  I have worked extensively with people experiencing grief, loss, trauma, anxiety/panic disorders, and depression.  I have worked in the emergency room, clinic, community agency, and individual settings.

               I work with parents to help them explore their parenting styles, determine what has been effective, and change ineffective techniques to increase the positive skills in families with children, adolescents, and teenagers.  Occasionally, it will be necessary to discuss the need for additional referrals to another professional or agency to better meet your needs.  These referrals may include, but are not limited to, a community psychiatrist, inpatient psychiatry facility, youth crisis care, or Indian Child Welfare.  Such referrals are always made with your input and knowledge, and generally with your consent.

               All of the issues discussed in therapy are strictly confidential.  Information concerning treatment can be released only with your written consent, or in the case of a minor, his or her parents or guardian.  There are three exceptions to confidentiality which are mandated by law: 1. If you are a specific danger to yourself or others; 2. Information involving the abuse of a child, a developmentally disabled person, or a dependent adult; 3. Information which is subpoenaed by a court of law.  In the above instances, I am mandated by law to report these to the appropriate agency and/or person.   If possible, I will discuss such a report with you before making it and will allow you to be present during the call to the agency.

               Although I am active in giving feedback, asking questions, and evaluating a client’s situation, I do not establish the goals of criteria for completion; it is my role to offer you guidance to help you sort out these issues.  With younger children, I will create with the guardian a case plan to work toward agreed upon goals.  I promise to be fully present during our sessions, to honor your values, and to use all that I have learned from my education, training, and experience to assist you in this process.  Please keep in mind that successful therapy requires your motivation, commitment, and follow through as well as mine.
