Starting therapy can be an overwhelming process during a challenging time in your life. My goal is to provide a space where you feel heard and seen while you share your story in a supportive environment.
I enjoy working with young adults and adults who are experiencing challenges with body image, body dysmorphic disorder, problematic eating patterns, anxiety, depression, and life transitions. I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is tailored to each client, thus I use a variety of techniques. I use techniques from internal family systems (IFS), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), compassion-focused, and psychodynamic. I have specialized training in internal family systems (level 1).
I earned my Doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Minnesota State University Moorhead and my Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Bethel University. I am working under the supervision of a Licensed Psychologist.
