About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in the State of Minnesota. I have been helping individuals, couples and families as a therapist for over 4 years. Previously, I worked with individuals and families as a hospital chaplain for more than 17 years. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relational issues, parenting challenges, career challenges, grief and loss, life transition and change. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My clients value my honest approach alongside my deep care and compassion to help each person be their best self. 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 conversation and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek 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!
