About Me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Minnesota, a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling and Psychological Services and a Post-Masters Certificate in Marriage and Family from Saint Mary’s University. I belong to the following professional organizations: Minnesota Women in Psychology, Minnesota Association for Marriage and Family Therapy, and the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

 

I have experience working in inpatient and outpatient counseling situations as well as providing in-home therapy. I draw from a wide range of resources to assist my clients in the healing process. Some of these are: psychodynamic therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), family systems theories, solution-focused therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and mindfulness. I am trained in Emotional Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and utilize this with clients who request this or for whom I feel may benefit from it. I have a passion for the expressive arts and incorporate various art forms into my work. I enjoy integrating faith and spirituality into my work with clients who desire this.

 

In my leisure time, I enjoy spending time with my two boys and husband as well as my family and friends. I enjoy walking, reading, biking, and yoga, as well as a variety of creative activities, such as drawing and painting.

 

My desire is to work with you to help you create a life that works for you. Every person and situation is unique. I feel fortunate to be a witness to the stories of clients. No experience is wasted. Each experience holds possibilities. 

 

I specialize in working with the following concerns:

 

  • Abuse (Physical, Sexual, Emotional, Spiritual),
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety
  • Body Image
  • Co-Dependency
  • Depression
  • Dissociative Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Family of Origin Issues
  • Parenting
  • Relationship Issues
  • Religious/Spiritual Concerns
  • Shame
  • Self-Esteem
  • Trauma

 

 

I understand that choosing a therapist can often feel overwhelming. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have questions or concerns. 

 

"Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” Brené Brown
