Home: Welcome



Life is a journey... 

At Prairie Family Counseling, I am committed toward your healthy growth, change, and well-being.  At times, we all need someone to help sort through the ups and downs of life.  We want to find peace, balance, and understanding.  We want to feel connected to others.    Whether you are are searching help for yourself, your child, or your family, you have already started on a path toward a  healthier future.

 And in this quest--Together We'll Grow.

What to expect on you first session.....

In your first session, I will spend some time getting to know you and the issues that brought you into treatment.  Typically, we’ll review some of the intake documents you completed prior to our session, discuss the limits of confidentiality, and address any questions you may have.  Most likely, you’ll find yourself talking about your current symptoms or struggles, as well saying a bit about your relationships, your interests, and your goals.  This information helps me to start formulating ideas of how best to help you. Your first two sessions will be different from subsequent visits that will focus more on helping you to understand, heal, and grow.

Personalized Care and Guidance

I implement effective psychotherapy methods to develop self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. Since opening the doors of my office in 2016, I have provided patients in the greater New Ulm and Sleepy Eye area a wide range of mental health services. From small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences - my services are personalized to suit everyone’s needs.

A Happier, Healthier You

I have extensive experience and training to provide children, teens, and adults with a safe, supportive, and therapeutic environment.  People seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We will examine and process your thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive manner. Through a combination of talk, art, and play we can work on your path to self-discovery and change.  Schedule an appointment today and see what I can do for you.

Happier Family

Family interactions are key to the satisfaction of the entire family. Rather than viewing an individual as causing conflict in the family, we'll use an approach that helps to identify the family dynamics which maintain the conflict at home.  The work will focus on identifying, working with, and improving the strengths of the family.  Issues addressed include: family conflict, separation/divorce, and couple's counseling.

Feeling Connected Again

Trust and emotional connection are the oxygen of your relationship with your spouse or partner.  All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, rebuild trust, rekindle passion, and again feel emotionally connected to your spouse or partner.  Contact me to rediscover the understanding, forgiveness, and compassion you've had with your loved one.

Stronger Relationships

As men, coming in to consult with a therapist can be difficult.  What it means to be a man can be respected, honored and valued.  Whether you are seeking to work on decreasing depression or anxiety or needing to address issues around anger or domestic conflict; I'll work with your strengths.  With understanding, we'll move toward making healthy growth and change in your life.



Connecting From A Distance

The internet has opened up new possibilities for mental health treatment.  It is a new frontier in providing help to those in need and in removing barriers  to  seeking treatment.  Teletherapy can be a good option for rural individuals where the distance to get help can become a barrier,  improve accessibility for those with physical or health limitations, and allow for greater flexibility in scheduling and reduced wait times.   Sessions from the comfort of your home!
