During her Master’s program, Hollie worked in two clinical settings – a domestic violence shelter and an in-home family therapy program. After completing her graduate degree and internships, Hollie worked in an outpatient mental health clinic in Racine.

Hollie currently works full-time in a macro-level systems change project to improve elementary-aged students’ mental health. In the past, Hollie also supervised a delinquency program and worked in supervised visitation. As a therapist, Hollie would consider her theoretical orientation to be eclectic but most often utilizes techniques from trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, play therapy with children, and solution-focused therapy. Hollie believes that the most important part of therapy is to have a strong therapeutic relationship. She works to put the client in the driver’s seat of their own life to improve their mood and overall functioning.
