It is incredibly vulnerable to seek support, and even more vulnerable to trust another human to help guide you through this journey. I believe YOU are the expert on your life, and my job as a therapist is to help you connect with the best version of yourself. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore your truths to move into living a life that is authentically yours.
I value connection and authenticity and believe both are necessary to have a meaningful experience. I believe that there is no “one way” to do therapy. My approach is collaborative and empowering to help you explore and gain awareness of your truest self. I value working with you to create a space that feels safe, productive, and supportive. I look forward to hearing your story and working alongside you to create a life that you feel is meaningful, true to you, and worth living.
I have experience working with children, adolescents, and families from a wide variety of backgrounds with concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, attachment, identity questioning, and self-esteem. I strive to work with individuals and families to change unhelpful patterns while creating therapeutic goals to help move through the healing process together.
For my education: I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology and Music from Bethel University and my Master’s in Social Work from the University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine University.
