Rhonda has been practicing in the area for over 11 years and loves being on the journey with you through life's struggles and victories. Her journey to therapy blossomed through her own healing process. She is a trained EMDR therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) targeting the root of beliefs that hold us back. She is certified in E-IMR (Enhanced Illness Management Recovery) focusing on when we abuse chemical substances to cope, masking and exacerbating mental health symptoms. Her approach to the therapy process starts with building a relationship with you to better understand your needs then grows through her eclectic style.

She also enjoys exploring your spirituality with you as you heal.
Rhonda is also a clinical supervisor, serving those wanting to work independently in the outpatient setting. Clinical Supervision is a safe and confidential place to explore your "why" along with your theory base and countertransference. Discussions of professional ethics and relationships, along with diagnosis, treatment planning and assessing risk are some of the topics that take place in these sessions. She supervises master's level Social Workers on their career path to becoming independent clinicians in both ND and MN. She is also an approved supervisor for counselors seeking LPC and LPCC licensing in MN.
