About me

I am licensed in Minnesota with 11 years of professional work experience. I am certified as a Tele-mental Health provider, and I specialize in trauma informed care, including intergenerational trauma. I am trained in Play Therapy, Sand Tray Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I am patient, understanding, and nonjudgmental. Another form of care that I can provide to clients is Brainspotting. Brainspotting is an advanced brain body technique for healing emotional trauma, abuse, anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, and multiple other mental health diagnoses. It is one of the few techniques that effectively addresses the root cause of psychological stress and trauma. I have experience working with teens who want help with anger management, motivation, self esteem, and confidence. I also enjoy working with adults and elders. I have many years of experience working with Native Americans and the Ojibwe culture. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. I am here to support & empower you in that journey.
