I have worked with individuals from highly varied backgrounds and work to see the potential for growth in each person. I have experience teaching, training, and providing therapy for individuals of all ages. I help largely through helping people find their motivation, self-worth, and potential in order to solve issues ranging from past traumas to current dilemmas. Through my career to this point I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing, Mediation, Thinking for Change, and Clinical Hypnosis. In session I also use techniques ranging from CBT, Adlerian psychology, and more. My experience has often involved individuals struggling with severe mental illness, substance use/alcohol use disorders, trauma, PTSD, and domestic violence. I have also done work with individuals working on parenting skills for typically developing children as well as those with developmental/intellectual delays. I am married and we have two sons.

Are you having thoughts and feelings that are self-critical, overwhelming, don’t mesh with your values, or are you procrastinating on your goals? Perhaps you and your partner are struggling in your relationship. I would be happy to help you. Sadness or anger may weigh us down. Trauma is often at the root of all of these, and I will honor your direction in how directly you choose to address the trauma. I work with clients, both individuals and couples, who struggle with anxiety, depression, and trauma; some have family members with addictions or a severe mental illness. In gaining skill in identifying and evaluating thoughts that often go unnoticed and un-checked, you can improve how you think and how you feel. The process can be hard, you are worth it, I am so glad you are reaching out!

In addition to CBT and DBT, I specialize in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, and Christian Counseling. I have experience working with adolescents, adults, and families.

I believe the right fit is extremely important in choosing a therapist. I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW), with 25 + years of experience working in a variety of settings. My academic studies were completed at St. Cloud State University with undergraduate degrees in Psychology and Communication and a Master’s degree in Community Counseling. My work experience includes private practice therapist, hospital emergency department clinician, college counselor, mental health insurance case manager, adoption supervisor, trauma therapist, hospice social worker and grief group facilitator. My approach is person centered with a strong emphasis on trauma and loss. Past experiences have an impact on our daily functioning, coloring our view both positively and negatively. Unresolved grief and negative experiences can impact an individual years after the event. By addressing these issues in therapy, individuals can reclaim their decision-making power, make choices in their life out of fullness rather than as a reaction to internal strife. My therapeutic approach is influenced by the Peso Boyden Psychodynamic Theory (trauma focus), Client Centered and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use a combination of techniques from these theoretical approaches to guide and direct therapy. Using therapeutic skills to identify feelings, thoughts and beliefs help to increase self-awareness. The Client sets the pace as unresolved areas of pain are recognized and named. Specific techniques are offered to aid in emotional resolution. This process reduces symptoms allowing the individual to regain a sense of control. In addition to therapy, I also teach clients self-advocacy skills. I enjoy helping them successfully navigate complex systems to get their needs met. These may include conflicts with health, school, insurance and long- term care organizations.

I am trained in cognitive-behavioral therapy, exposure and response prevention, dialectical behavior therapy, and motivational interviewing.

As a therapist, I engage in a therapeutic relationship to help support people throughout their journey with mental wellness and self-discovery. Throughout this journey I support with compassion, empathy, and active listening. As we embark on this journey I help guide to build insight into current patterns to explore how they are currently impacting our overall well-being and support throughout the discovery of positive changes. I work with adolescents and adults that have difficulty managing relationships, emotions, and life transitions. Additionally, I also focus on sex-specific programming assisting in the exploration of healthy boundaries, relationships, and sexuality. Throughout my practice, I support clients in understanding how their environment impacts their mental wellness and general well-being. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist. I have experience serving individuals that have difficulties with anxiety, depression, effects of past trauma, and challenges with relational boundaries. My model for change is increasing the insight of the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and pulling from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. This integrative approach allows me to support my clients in the best way that serves them

These opportunities have given me a wide range of experiences and skills to work with a variety of individuals seeking to better themselves and their mental health.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Richfield area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Richfield therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Richfield due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Richfield may not take health insurance, some in the state of Minnesota may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Minnesota you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Richfield, Minnesota working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Richfield above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

You can also try a Richfield therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Richfield therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in MN, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours.

No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Richfield counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Richfield licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Richfield, Minnesota can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Richfield has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
