I am committed to developing a therapeutic relationship that encourages authenticity, personal growth, and self-acceptance. When life is challenging and making changes feels too hard, therapy doesn’t have to be. I advocate for small shifts in thoughts and actions to make day-to-day living more manageable and, when built upon, a more meaningful life. No matter what age or stage of life or which type of therapy is the best fit, everyone benefits from a better understanding of their thoughts, motivations, and behaviors.
I employ a person-centered approach to therapy utilizing empathy, acceptance, and respect informed by Humanistic Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).
I received a BFA in painting and printmaking and am currently working towards my Master’s of Social Work, clinical track, from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. My diverse and broad background allows me to be a caring and effective therapist.
