About me

I am a individual counselor licensed in the great state of Minnesota. I have over 20 years of counseling experience mostly working with bereavement. I have experience working with depression, anxiety, OCD and ADHD. Having ADHD myself and children with ADHD, I am able to bring some personal experience with managing everyday life and parenting. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines Cognitive-Behavioral, Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Rational-Emotive Counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek out help for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
