About Me

First, I am a Faith Based Counselor. I believe in intertwining Christian principles in my work.. I respect your point of view. I am a Mental Health, Addiction and Anger Management Counselor. I have been working in this field for 25-years in Montana, Nevada and Alaska. I have managed programs for agencies in Montana, Nevada and Alaska and have been in private practice 8-years. I have great respect for all of my clients, no matter what issues are brought to counseling. I tailor my counseling to my client's specific needs.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I genuinely like and enjoy my clients and develop great counseling relationships.

I usually utilize Cognitive Behavioral, Person Centered, Humanistic and Rational Emotive Therapies. I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families – adolescents and adults suffering from depression/mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/abuse, addiction and substance use, divorce, infidelity, family conflict, relationship issues, self-harming, suicidal ideations, and grief.

If you are struggling with life issues and/or grief you do not have to struggle alone. I offer hope, help, care, and support.

Totally recommend Dee, I was able to get over something I have struggled to let go for years from the very first session with her.
