I have my master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Minnesota. I have over four years of experience in the mental-health field, and during this time I have worked in a variety of settings, including: in-home skills services, adult day treatment, group therapy, individual therapy, community mental health, and private practice. Most of my experience has been working with teens and adults. Furthermore, I have worked with individuals who are dealing with a wide variety of issues, including: depression, anxiety, PTSD, domestic violence/abuse, bipolar disorder, low self-esteem, and career related issues. I also have a special interest in working with individuals with disabilities and their family members.
I take a very warm, positive, and strengths-based approach. I also believe that one of the most important aspects of therapy is comfort and trust within the therapeutic relationship, therefore I am always open to questions and feedback. Furthermore, I use a variety of techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and positive psychology.
Thank you for reaching out and I look forward to working with you.

She was very upfront about how we would proceed. She is welcoming and friendly and is great at listening and responding to what I have to say. She also helps by using guiding and open ended questions that really make me think about a variety of situations.
