She has worked as a therapist for over 30 years in both in-patient and out-patient settings for adolescents and adults. She began her career in correctional settings and has experience working with diverse populations. She provides training for professionals as well as teaches on a college level. She is a Master’s level therapist credentialed as a LCAC by Kansas Behavioral Regulatory Board.

Challenges Inc. is a licensed multi-service facility emphasizing personal treatment plans and holistic strength-based treatment approach. Strength based treatment focuses on how to help people achieve goals without the stigma of negative labels. We teach skills to accomplish goals utilizing holistic methods but will refer to appropriate medical practitioner if pharmaceutical medication is required.
