Gundersen welcomes new counselor to Sparta and Tomah

Donna Kettner

Gundersen Behavioral Health in Tomah and Sparta are pleased to welcome an expert mental health counselor to their staffs.

Donna Kettner, a licensed clinical social worker, has lived in Sparta and cared for patients in Sparta and Tomah for the past 11 years. She will be providing individual and family mental health and alcohol and other drugs abuse services to children, teens and adults in the Gundersen Tomah and Sparta clinics.

"I have been working in rural mental health for over 25 years and love it!" says Kettner. "I come with experience working with a wide range of mental health and physical problems and believe my expertise fits very well with rural populations. Secondly, I have been in leadership positions most of my career and really enjoy collaborating, mentoring and working with the medical team to provide comprehensive and integrated services to the patients we serve."

"I look forward to joining the Gundersen Behavioral Health team and Family Practice providers to continue on providing excellence in services to the Tomah and Sparta community."

Gundersen's approach to mental health care is also a big attraction for Kettner, who supports the comprehensive "mind-body-spirit" practice in medicine. She's been training in the approach and says the teamwork among mental health and physical medicine improves treatment and results for her patients.

Outside of work, Donna has a busy life and knows a bit about teens. She is parent to a 16-year-old boy, and has through the years fostered 27 teen-age girls.

To schedule with Kettner in Sparta, call (608) 269-6731 or in Tomah call (608) 374-3853.
