Since prehistoric times, humans have been reliant on the stars in the night sky for guidance and comfort when lost. Within therapy, we tend to look inward within ourselves to locate that same guidance and comfort and use our internal guiding stars to navigate our own journeys.
An old Latin saying “per aspera ad astra” translates to “through hardships, to the stars” which embodies that we are capable of surviving rocky moments in life to reach the outer limits of what we want. You already have the answers; let’s explore them together.
I use a diverse array of therapeutic modalities in my sessions with clients, but tend to focus heavily on using symbol and ritual in self care practices. I believe that caring for ourselves is a sacred act. I also know that it can be a struggle, not only to find the time to do this, but to feel worthy of self care. My goal as a therapist is to assist you in reaching a place where you are able to understand and internalize your own worth. I strive to build therapeutic relationships that are grounded in respect, authenticity, collaboration, and strengths-based approaches.
I earned my undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Sociology from the University of St. Thomas and currently obtaining my Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from the University of St. Thomas. My clinical experience includes being a clinical assistant for a private practice in North Minneapolis called Mental Health Counseling Services, as well as past volunteer experience at Regions Hospital within their inpatient psychiatric unit.
