Life can be beautiful, but also incredibly hard. At times, it may be too hard to carry everything on our own. Whether someone is making the decision to seek help after years of consideration, is experiencing anxiety or depression for the first time, or has given up hope that things can get better, everyone deserves the opportunity to improve their mental wellness and find joy. When our arm is broken, we see a doctor and get the care we need to heal properly. But when it comes to our mental health, it can be hard to give ourselves the same treatment that we would give a physical injury. If it feels like time to seek care for yourself, your child, or your family, I am here to accompany you on that journey.
I work with people of all ages and abilities using a person-centered, systems-informed approach meant to adapt to their specific needs. There are no “one-size fits all” models in therapy, and individual changes occur within the contexts we live in. We will collaborate to find what works for you, and build on the strengths that have already gotten you this far. Additionally, equity and access in mental healthcare is extremely important to me, and it is a goal of mine to provide excellent services to everyone regardless of race, culture, gender, sexuality, neurotype, income, or living situation.
I completed my Master’s Degree at Adler Graduate School and am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) in the state of Minnesota. My therapy style is informed by Adlerian, Humanistic, and Cognitive-Behavioral principles, while viewing problems from a systemic and relational lens. In the office I can usually be found coffee in hand, but in my time away I enjoy outdoor activities of all kinds, finding delicious comfort food, and learning whatever I can about a subject that has captured my attention.
