The family and staff would like to thank-you for the outpouring of prayers, love, and support on the loss of our beloved director JC Chambers, who passed away very unexpectedly July 8, 2018.

Stronghold will carry on the mission and serving that began 25 years ago. We appreciate your continued support.



My roots are deep in this area. I was born and raised in rural South Dakota and transplanted to Sioux Falls for my education. I am an Augustana College alum and received my degree in Psychology. After working for a year in a hospital mental health program I decided to further my education by obtaining my masters in Marriage and Family Therapy.

I began counseling at Stronghold Counseling Services as an intern in 2007. After the completion of my internship I continued as a Clinical Therapist at Stronghold.

I currently am licensed as a Marriage and Family Therapist in South Dakota and Minnesota. I also received endorsement by the South Dakota Department of Human Services as a Qualified Mental Health Professional. I maintain a clinical membership to the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy.

We live in a fallen world, and strength comes in walking with people on their broken paths. Hope comes in creating a therapeutic relationship based on mutual respect and genuine care. I provide therapy for adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have a passion for people and their relationships with themselves, others, and God. My metaphor for relationships is like ripples created in water where a stone lands, each member of a system is affected by their choices and by the choices of those around them. I believe in the bottomless grace of God and view therapy as a way of providing others a non-judgmental, grace-based point of view.

In my time away from work, I enjoy my family, all types of sports, and photography. I look forward to working with you.
