About me

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has worked with thousands of people over the past 15 years. I work best with people who have a desire for self growth, want to increasing their self awareness and believe in a higher power to assist with achieving this. We are so much more than our thoughts and emotions. My approach primarily focuses on developing self awareness by teaching people how to understand their thoughts, behaviors and emotions. I use a variety of styles that focus on Positive Psychology including but not limited to Hypnotherapy, Eneagram, Inner Child and Parts Work, ACT, CBT, Solution Focused and Existential . We unconsciously think, behave and feel certain ways about ourselves, others and/or the world and want to change but don't know how. We also over think trying to fix an issue, however, it clearly does not work and often does more harm than good.

I am passionate about the use of insight oriented techniques such as mindfulness, meditation and hypnosis. I became Certified as a Hypnotherapist by the National Guild of Hypnotists in 2016 and have extensive clinical hypnosis training through the Minnesota Society of Clinical Hypnosis . I have over 200 hours of education training in various hypnosis methods. I have been utilizing hypnotherapy in my mental health practice and have witnessed incredible change that people were unable to achieve through talk therapy alone . Hypnotherapy assists with uncovering and healing the unconscious blocks that contribute to unwanted, repeating patterns. Learn more about Hypnotherapy check out my website:
