Here For You

As a Licenced Professional Counselor - Mental Health, I strive to use my expertise in order to create a comfortable and safe environment for you, for both in-person and telehealth sessions. Since 1995, I have been providing counseling to individuals who have entrusted me with their story and their hope for solutions. I consider that trust to be a privilege. I respect each individual, with the goal in mind to help that person find or regain sight of their inner self and strength, which can lead them in the direction of living life better. In 2009, I had the fortune to open a private practice serving a small area of southeastern South Dakota. Now in 2023, Better Living Counseling is prepared to expand! Through telehealth, we are happy to serve all of South Dakota with more Midwest states to come in the near future!

Within us lies a deep strength and power to not only endure, but to find joy, happiness, and success, finding our compass from within as well as allowing help from those who care!

Together, let us get you on your way to  Living Life Better
