Relationships in all areas of our lives are so important for well-being. If you are looking for help, someone to listen, or are simply curious about life changes you are experiencing, I will work with you to build a collaborative relationship, as this is key to the therapeutic process. I have a passion for working with people as they journey through life's difficulties and transitions, and seek to turn toward the joy and peace available to them in their lives. I view family/friends/community as an important part of this healing process, since change happens best through relationship and connection. I have experience working with and supporting individuals, couples, and families through a wide range of issues and struggles, including trauma, marriage/relationship difficulty, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, grief and loss, and anger issues. Some of my special interests are in neuroscience as it relates to therapy and the process of change, the mind/body/spirit connection, and mindfulness meditation. I take a gentle, mindful, client-centered approach to therapy, focusing on your needs while listening with an open heart and spirit. It is a great privilege to walk with you as you find your strength and resilience through your healing journey.

I received a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota. I am trained in EMDR, a powerful intervention for processing trauma; EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), a model of couples therapy that allows for decreased conflict, increased positive communication, and deepening connection; and  Prepare/Enrich, a pre-marriage and marriage assessment.
