I am licensed in Minnesota with 5 years of professional work experience as a psychotherapist, and 8 years working in mental health more broadly. Prior to this I worked as a Philosophy professor after earning my PhD in philosophy.
Former clients tell me that I'm approachable, supportive, and a good listener. Many times I have been told that I seem to genuinely care about them--and they are right, I do! I take my job as a therapist very seriously, and I will collaborate and problem solve with you to help you reach your goals. I am a curious person and I will likely have lots of questions for you about your background, your family of origin, your perspective on life and the way you think.
I have experience in helping clients who suffer from stress and anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks and panic disorder, agoraphobia, OCD, ADHD, coping with addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, and confidence. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life and to take these steps towards change! Congratulations on taking that very important step.

Justin is an incredible professional that has helped me navigate many difficult challenges that i’ve faced in my life recently. He is the reason why people say that not all hero’s wear capes.

When I heard about BetterHelp my main concern was the quality of the therapists. However, Justin was great to work with and made my experience positive. You can tell he genuinely cares and gives good advice. Thanks for the help and keep up the good work.

Jeffrey has been a huge help with talking me through my current transitional situation in life. He has also been helping me recognize patterns in my anxiety and panic issues, which I've been noticing less of since I started talking with him.
