Clinical Trainee
Fosston Secondary, Magelssen Elementary, East Polk County, Red Lake County

“My clinical approach is to build on relationships. I have a philosophy that growth cannot come without first having trust, especially with children. My reasoning for pursuing this career is to be able to give children support in critical stages in their development to further provide them with chances to achieve their greatest selves. My advise for anyone interested in services is to remember that we are all allowed grace and support when there are challenges in life. We are all humans and stumble. I hope to be the hand outstretched to help you stand back up because your wellbeing is a priority.”
