About Me

Hello....Though it can be difficult, deciding to seek therapy is one of the healthiest steps you can take. Finding the right therapist can be the challenging. From me, you can expect warmth and support, yet I will challenge you when needed. I value humor and strive to make the therapeutic experience one that is safe to explore and grow. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Minnesota with 12+ years of experience helping adults with mood disorders, anxiety, life transitions ( marriage, parenthood, retirement), relationships, trauma, grief, stress, suicidal ideation and self-esteem. I truly enjoy being invited into your world, to help you feel empowered and equipped to get through life's challenges.

Whether you are struggling with mental health issues, are seeking guidance with a stressful situation, or are trying to move life in a new direction, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals. My priority is for you to leave sessions with new support, insight and inspiration. I use a combination of approaches based on your unique needs, drawing on mindfulness and cognitive behavioral practices.

I have experience in working with clients from diverse backgrounds in all kinds of settings. I also focus on working with parents, guiding them through the many stages of parenting. With specialized training in treating Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders from Postpartum Support International, I help parents during infertility, pregnancy, postpartum and traumatic birth experiences.

My practice hours are Monday - Thursday from 9am to 5pm. I generally can respond at least once per morning and once per evening, sometimes more! You can book a live session with me ahead of time, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9am-4pm. Please remember that BetterHelp is not appropriate if you are in crisis or in immediate need of support. In crisis situations, please call 911 or local emergency services. You can also call 1-800-273-TALK (8255) to talk to someone right away!”

Written by M.O. on Jan 30, 2019 after counseling with Jocelyn for 4 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, intimacy-related issues, and self esteem

I haven't seen results in therapy like this ever. Jocelyn really listens to me and helps me process through my trauma, and provides me with tools to handle my anxiety.
