* Currently not seeing clients. 

“My approach to therapy, and to life is with humor, fun, honesty, openness, genuineness, and reverence for the individual experience. My hope is for everyone who walks in to leave feeling heard, supported, challenged and empowered. It’s also important for me to provide a judgment-free place where you can discuss issues of culture, gender, spirituality, race and sexuality. In the therapy process, we work together in clarifying your needs and goals, and preparing and empowering you to work on them. The pace and desired results are tailored to you. In our process, I provide intervention, support, and education based on my expertise and experience, with consideration of your unique personality, challenges, strengths, and resources.”

Over the last 9 years, she has worked in a variety of settings, with a wide range of clients and concerns. She specializes in individual work with adolescents and young adults, clients with co-occurring mental health and substance use problems, men-specific concerns, transitions/life changes, trauma, anxiety, depression, clients with chronic illnesses and pain, as well as Personality disorders and other Severe and Persistent Mental Illnesses (SPMI’s).

Candace is married with two cat children. Outside of work, she likes to spend time video gaming, hanging out with her siblings, nieces and nephews, watching soccer, or cooking up a masterpiece in the kitchen.

Candace graduated from Valparaiso University in Indiana with a Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. She is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in the State of Minnesota.
