You are valid and you deserve to be here. Life can be incredibly stressful and sometimes requires us to sit down, breathe, and figure out how to get through it. As a therapist, I am here to help you do exactly that. Therapy can be vulnerable and even intimidating, so my main goal is to let you feel seen and heard, safe and accepted. Supporting your mental health is a journey that will allow you to learn more about yourself while creating a therapeutic relationship that is affirming and inspires growth.
At CARE Counseling, I provide therapy to female, male, and non-binary clients from age 7 and up. My work is driven by a client-centered perspective that uses skills from CBT, mindfulness, and strengths-based therapy. Using a trauma-informed, culturally sensitive lens is important, as I have experience working with diverse individuals, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community. My experience also includes providing services to those who have encountered anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, relational issues, and difficulties adjusting to life-changes. I especially enjoy working with those who may be new to therapy.
I have had the privilege to earn an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Luther College and my Master’s in Clinical Social Work from the University of St.Thomas. I am currently under supervision while working towards my independent license. As all are welcome in my office, I am excited to meet you and start this journey of supporting your mental health.
