My experience includes supporting the specific needs of individuals who engage in the following creative spaces: advertising, marketing, public relations, design, music performance and production, media production, culinary arts, styling, fine art, art education, writing + more.
My Background and Approach
I am a dually licensed mental health clinician in the state of Minnesota as well as a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. My experience includes providing counseling + coaching for adolescents and adults in a variety of settings including outpatient, intensive outpatient and residential treatment centers. I also have experience teaching psychology and counseling courses at a local university, am a board-certified clinical supervisor in the state of Minnesota and currently serve on the Minnesota Counseling Association Board of Directors as the Marketing Chair.
My areas of clinical expertise include:
Low productivity or motivation
Balancing creativity with career and/or parenting
Creative block + burnout
Balancing family + self-care + career
Stress + Anxiety
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I embrace creativity in my clinical work due to my own creative inclinations as an art maker and absorber. I obtained a BFA in studio art, with a focus on video art, and completed a holography internship in NYC under holographer Dr. Laser. I also worked in the field of post-production for advertising prior to pursuing a career as a therapist. As someone who values art + creativity and has worked in the creative industry, I understand the dichotomy of the creative process as self-care as well as a source of stress.
