I am passionate about empowering clients to make meaningful changes and reduce the impact of external barriers to increase quality of life.
Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Minnesota
I am extensively trained in CBT, including Trauma Focused CBT. While I integrate other therapeutic approaches into my practice, I feel that addressing the connection between thought, feelings, and behavior is an important element of the change process.
Having experience with individuals at many different stages of life, I enjoy working through the stress that can accompany major life changes.
I have gained extensive experience working with depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation without intent, and lack of motivation/enjoyment in daily activities.
Anxiety can be complex, as it typically exists because our brains are trying to keep us safe. Unfortunately, this helpful protective response can easily become overwhelming and can impact our lives in negative ways. I enjoy assisting people in finding the balance and using their anxious thoughts to their advantage by directing it in healthy outlets.
