About My Clients

My ideal clients want to make positive, meaningful changes in their lives. You understand that you are the expert on your own life and want me to walk alongside, offering support and encouragement as you navigate your path. You are open to seeing things differently and coming up with new ideas to make changes that are important to you. Together we will work through life's challenges by utilizing your strengths and new tools you will learn.

My Background and Approach

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist, with over twelve years of experience in helping children, adolescents, individuals, couples, and families to help resolve anger issues, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, and family relationship issues. I work with clients to uncover your strengths, as well as the interactions that are not helpful. We work together to make your relationships healthier and more enjoyable. My main goal is to help create relationships that are supportive, challenge us in healthy ways, and allow space for us to grow into our best selves. We are always learning, growing, and evolving which can challenge the expectations we have in long-term relationships. My professional experience includes working in an office setting, client's homes, schools, and communities. I have worked with families involved in Child Protection and adolescents involved in the criminal justice system. I have a masters degree in Psychology and a bachelors degree from the University of MN

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I honor and welcome clients from all backgrounds. We each have our histories and experiences within multiple systems (families, schools, communities, nations, cultures, religions, etc.) and these experiences help create the amazing, unique beings that we are. This multitude of uniqueness enhances our world and deserves to be respected, valued, and cherished. I work to understand the privileges I am afforded in our society and fight against racism, sexism, violence, oppression, and discrimination of any kind. As a human being, I make mistakes and have a lot of learning to do. My intention is to create a safe space where you can explore parts of yourself and your experiences that may be difficult to examine. I welcome feedback regarding how I can create safer space for you and your concerns.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
