I am licensed in Minnesota with 5 years of professional work experience and over 10 years of experience in various behavioral health settings including residential, outpatient services and crisis response. I have experience in helping clients with stress and anxiety, trauma and abuse, depression, & coping with life changes. I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
My vision in therapy is to create a sacred and safe space to meet you where you are at in your experiences and offer support as you navigate the challenges and obstacles you face. I learn about life through your experience and with your invitation, I can share what I notice or offer support. I am a student to learning about life through your experience and I am also a teacher through sharing my training, education and wisdom about your circumstance. My theoretical orientation is eclectic in that I am passionate about evidenced based practices and the integration of ancient wisdom such as mindfulness strategies, reiki and holistic healing modalities. I have received training in cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness based self-compassion, eye movement desensitization and reprocessing, motivational interviewing, narrative therapy and person centered approach.
You are the healer of your own life and I am your guide to finding the tools that encourage this. I am here to support your innate gifts and uniqueness as you find your path to achieving your wildest dreams. I admire the courage and strength that you are demonstrating by investing in yourself. Investing in yourself is the greatest gift you can receive. It is also a gift for your loved ones, when you are well resourced and supported. Thank you for considering me as a partner on your journey!
