I am a Marriage and Family Therapist working with families, couples, teenagers, and children in Minnesota. I have been licensed in Minnesota since 2010 and prior to that time, I was licensed in Iowa working with individuals and their families, managing chemical health. I have experience working with a variety of people and populations. Some of the brave people I have worked with include those dealing with addiction, trauma, family of origin issues and mood disturbances.
My approach is gentle and warm and is guided by Motivational Interviewing and strength based modalities. I am trained in CBT and DBT and utilize Narrative and Solution Focused therapy. Ultimately, I believe people are resilient and powerful when they have the support, encouragement and acceptance they deserve.
I feel honored to sit with people and families needing support and would love to work with you, where ever you are on your journey.
