Helping people who feel stuck get unstuck is my passion. Finding balance and addressing feeling disconnected or overwhelmed. Offering enthusiastic support and new perspectives on the underlying reasons a person or couple is struggling and then how to make real change.
We will build awareness and incorporate new skills to address whatever feels hard right now. And working towards being more content.
I have an authentic, welcoming, and direct approach. My clinical focus is supporting people in finding satisfaction and enjoying meaningful relationships, including working through both big and small transitions.
I have additional experience in supporting people during pregnancy and the postpartum time, being a team while experiencing parenting challenges, blended families, coparenting after a divorce, healthy sexual interactions, dating and new relationships, and those with a history of trauma. I am an advocate for social justice and marginalized groups and am an LGBTQ+ ally.
I'm pursuing a Master of Arts in Counseling focusing on Marriage, Couples, and Family Counseling at Adler Graduate School. Most recently, I worked as an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) in private practice, offering empathy, support, and care to new parents to help them to meet their goals. I also have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Washington University in St. Louis. I find my training in Dr. Sue Johnson’s Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) helpful to frame the challenges couples face using an attachment lens.
I am an intern at the MN Couple Therapy Center in Burnsville under the supervision of Cindy Fredrick, MA, LMFT. I provide non-judgmental, informative, and compassionate therapy to couples, individuals (18+), and families at a reduced rate of $30 per hour. I look forward to working with you in person at our Burnsville location or via telehealth.
