Licensed Clinical Social Worker in St. Paul, MN
Working with parents is a passion of mine! Being a parent is hard. Transitions and developmental changes, among many factors, can lead to conflict, discipline challenges, emotional outbursts, and family disconnection. If you are struggling to navigate the complicated world of parenting, I can be a guide. I will use a developmental lens and work in partnership with you. Together we can explore problems and find solutions that make sense within your family values, culture, and context.
Life is stressful! I am passionate about using connection, reflection, and curiosity to explore how stress is showing up in your life. Somatic complaints, reactivity, shutting down or withdrawing... these can all be symptoms of stress. I am passionate about building a sense of self-worth, healthy boundaries, sustainable self-care, relational interdependence and moderation.
Anxiety is the worst! While it can take on different forms, anxiety is an unnecessary barrier to living our best life. My approach is compassionate, relational and functional. Together we can explore how the anxiety is getting in the way and how we can gently learn new ways of being in the world.
I believe open and trusting relationships are at the core of successful therapy. When we are willing and able to be vulnerable in a therapeutic relationship, there is so much opportunity for growth.
