As human beings we are hardwired for connection and joy, yet at times life circumstances, relationship dynamics, trauma, and distress hinder us. Depression, anxiety, and stress make it difficult for all of us to connect with others and thrive within our relationships. With decades of life experience as a leader, parent, and partner, I am passionate about helping others navigate through difficulties with a collaborative and compassionate approach to therapy.
I am currently a master’s level graduate student at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota studying Marriage and Family Therapy. I previously received a master’s degree in Psychological Counseling from Bethel University in St. Paul and a bachelor’s degree in Communications from the University of Wisconsin Steven’s Point. I am also pursuing certification in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), an attachment-based approach to help couples and individuals reduce relational distress.
I am an intern at the Minnesota Couple Therapy Center under the supervision of Kurt Wical, PhD, LMFT and Carolyn Dehnbostel, MA, LMFT. Areas of clinical interest include premarital, couples, individual, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, life stage concerns, and religious concerns and abuse.
I look forward to collaborating with individuals from various backgrounds, including racial, ethnic, religious, and sexual orientation, in a welcoming, compassionate, and affirming environment. I provide therapy to couples, individuals (18+), and families at a reduced rate of $30 per hour.
