“I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it, you’re not gonna be the last to go through it,”
- Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson -
I am licensed in Minnesota with 12 years of professional work experience. I have experience in helping clients with a wide variety of issues: stress and anxiety, depression, coping with addictions and recovery, relationship issues, & life transitions. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you!
I emphasize building rapport with clients and developing a relationship that is supportive and conducive to the healing process. My specialties include motivational interviewing, solution focused therapy, person-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy. I also incorporate mindfulness as well as DBT skills.
I believe that a client focused and strength based approach combined with hope, honesty, and humor can be helpful in creating positive change.
In my free time, I enjoy hiking, skiing, and traveling. I adore dogs, and plan to adopt one next fall!
“I was with someone recently who asked: ‘Well, don’t you think that if you do too much therapy it will take away your artistic process?’ And I told them: ‘The biggest lie that we’ve ever been sold is that we as artists have to stay in pain to create.'”
