Fostering wellness for Americans and New American
culturally appropriate services
We strive to Educate and Integrate
Promoting wellness is much more than eating healthy and exercising. From day one, we work diligently to create a balance between mental, physical and emotional health in each person. We understand the stigma related to minority families and mental health and understand the specific path we must take to alleviate that stigma.
We have trained counselors to provide counseling services. Motherland Health understands that you may want to take care of yourself, but transportation, lack of childcare and language barrier may stand in your way. We work hard with each individual to eliminate those barriers by providing transportation to meetings and appointments with Motherland Health, and having capable, trained individuals to spend time with your children during your appointment.
At Motherland Health, we understand that not everyone grew up with the same life. Our culturally trained staff works hard to understand your background and cater your care specifically to the culture that you identify with.

I have had a passion for mental health and community wellness my entire life and live to make people happy. Struggling with mental health myself, I know how alone that can make someone feel. If I can take that loneliness away from just one person, it will all be worth it.
Resource Manager/Office Manager
I have always had the selfish need to help others and enjoyed working with individuals from all walks of life. I have over 10 years of experience working in the mental health field, as well as dealing with mental health issues in my own life. I have experienced the impact that it has, not only on the individuals, but also family and community members. My goal is to help individuals and their families find and utilize the help and resources they need to live happy and healthy lives.

I am a Licensed Addiction Counselor in North Dakota. I am a certified facilitator for Cognitive Behavioral Interventions for Substance Abuse Facilitator Training an evidenced-based therapy designed to help individuals that are struggling with co-occurring disorders. I strive to maintain fidelity of this treatment model in my work. I work hard to help families and individuals see the changes and benefits for sober living and addressing mental health concerns.
Family and volunteering have always been important for me. I am a member of NAADAC, the association for Addiction Professionals and American Counseling Association. I enjoy spending time with family and traveling in my spare time.
Mental Health Counseling
We want you to be the total package.
There is no perfect route to wellness. We know that some people need more focus on their physical wellness than others, and others would rather focus on mental wellness. We work on the entire person so that they can live a balanced life, as they see fit.
We are the village you're looking for.
You know the saying, "it takes a village to raise a child"? We can be that village for you! Let our trained staff spend time with your children playing games, exercising and having fun while you focus on achieving a healthy and well-rounded you during your counseling appointment.
We bring you to the care.
Our licensed drivers will pick you up from your home to come to your appointments with Motherland Health and bring you back home. All you have to do is let us know if you (and possibly your children) need transportation when you sign up for your appointment with Motherland Health.
We are always looking for individuals that are eager to help out the community, and always appreciate the generous donations that keep our doors open. If you are interested in volunteering, donating, scheduling appointments, hearing us speak about Motherland Health or just want to chat, please fill out the form below.
