Are you showing up in your life the way you want to? Are you able to be present – with family, friends, in your job, in relation to the rest of the world? If something is missing in your life, or you feel disconnected from other people, or, conversely, overly dependent on other people, therapy may be the right thing for you. You deserve to feel good and to enjoy your life. You deserve to be the best person you can be.
My job as a therapist is to listen with empathy, to ask questions, and to gingerly guide you toward better connecting with yourself, with others, and with the wider world. I view therapy as a collaborative process in which the client and clinician – you and I – work together. Sometimes feeling better requires carefully shifting one’s perspective on life and the world, sometimes it requires making a significant change. My overall task as a therapist is to help you as an individual form and improve relationships. Meaningful relationships – with others, with yourself, and with the broader world – contribute to emotional wellbeing.
I use a client-centered approach to therapy, informed by CBT, trauma-informed therapy, strengths-based therapy, mindfulness, existential therapy, and motivational interviewing. I work with individuals 18 and older who are experiencing depression, anxiety, substance use problems, adjustment and transitional difficulties, and PTSD.
I received my Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from Hamline University and my Master’s degree in Integrated Behavioral Health from the University of Minnesota. I am a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) in Minnesota and am currently working under supervision towards obtaining my LPCC (Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor) license.
