Making the decision to seek out professional support can feel overwhelming, regardless of whether or not you are new to therapy. You may have countless questions, feel a number of emotions, or be unsure of where to even begin. I want you to know that you’re not alone. Seeking help takes tremendous courage, and taking the first step can be particularly challenging.
I am dedicated to providing a safe, affirmative space for you to explore, connect, and grow. My goal is to provide opportunities for you to challenge unhelpful patterns of thoughts and behaviors and develop new, more constructive ways of coping with life’s challenges. My approach is client-centered – that is, our work together is collaborative and tailored to your unique experiences, beliefs, and preferences. My approach is also strength-based, meaning I strive to empower you to access your inherent strengths and resources throughout the change process. I look forward to meeting you, hearing your story, and working together towards a life full of joy, hope, and meaning.
I have experience working with children and adults from a variety of backgrounds who struggle with symptoms including, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment, impulsivity/hyperactivity, adjustment to life changes, and relationship conflict. I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and am completing my Master of Social Work degree at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities.
