I am a licensed marriage and family counselor in Minnesota with 22 years of experience working with individuals and families. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including persons experiencing anxiety, depression, substance use issues, schizophrenia spectrum disorders, and personality disorders.
My counseling style is warm and solution based. I believe in meeting people where they are at in their journey, as it takes a great deal of courage to share personal life struggles. In my perspective, the development of a trusting therapeutic relationship is a crucial component in creating a safe working environment. This therapeutic relationship will also assist the person in identify areas of their life they would like to improve and specific personal goals to incorporate in the development of a treatment plan. Together we will work to mutually define next steps towards these identified goals and ultimately work toward their desired outcome.
I do recognize that it takes a great deal of strength and vulnerability to reach out for help, and I sincerely commend you for taking this first big step! I am looking forward to the chance to work together and to help you live your best life!
