I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho, completed a Bachelor of Science in Psychology while attending Albertson College of Idaho, and went on to achieve a graduate degree at the University of Denver in Social Work with an emphasis in trauma. My work history includes employment at the State of Idaho as a Child Protection Worker, Children’s Mental Health Clinician, and as a certified as a Designated Examiner. My career then moved forward into a regional medical center emergency department. Most recently, I worked in the admission department and provided oversight to an inpatient detox & rehab facility at Intermountain Hospital.
I am a licensed clinical social worker. My passion is working alongside those who are invested in becoming the best version of themselves, while creating opportunities for insight and growth. My focus will be to collaborates care with the specialists on your team. Challenges are inevitable.

I can help you or a loved one bridge the connection of mind, body, and soul in an approach to healing and recovery.

Dawn is delightful and always positive with a heathy dose of practicality and reason. I truly adore her, and she’s helped me walk through quite a few events that I wasn’t able to talk with anyone else about. I can’t recommend her enough. You’re the best, Dawn!!

Super sweet, good at listening, not pushy with trying to tell you how to better yourself. She’s makes the money you spend on this worth it.
