Relationships are essential to navigate life with support, encouragement, and connection. I collaborate with clients to gain understanding into who they are and how they relate to the world. My role as a therapist is to offer curiosity and pose challenges alongside clients as they create meaningful change. Therapy offers a unique space to explore vulnerabilities, share in celebration, and discover new ways of interacting.
I hold a Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and completed my graduate work at Saint Mary's University of Minnesota. I am currently working under the supervision and licensure of Amanda Pikala, MA, LMFT. My clinical experience includes working with adolescents, couples, family systems, and parent-child dyads. I bring a systemic lens to the clinical work that I do in order to address relationships that may or may not be physically present in the therapeutic space. In addition to my clinical experience, I have specific training in PREPARE-ENRICH, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and have completed basic training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). I am also pursuing additional training in EFT.
The process of therapy is most successful when the therapeutic relationship elicits trust and comfort. This includes being able to show up as you are, in your humanness, and be challenged to grow. I am privileged to be a guest in your story as we navigate the current season of your life together. Because the therapeutic relationship is key, I offer 20-minute introductory consults to be able to virtually connect together, ask pertinent questions and preview our dialogue. Please email me with questions or to request an introductory consultation. Together we will celebrate victories, wade through challenges and explore future possibilities. Welcome, I’m glad you’re here.
