I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families interested in making a positive change to their lives. I utilize a holistic approach to therapy, which includes attention to the mind, body, family, and community.
I have worked for 20+ years as a licensed therapist with families and children in day treatment programs, in their homes, and in a clinical settings. During that time, I have learned that therapy can be a place for us to become aware of strengths that we may not know are there. It can be a place of discovery, and integration. I am most interested in working with clients who want someone to work with them to make concrete positive change in their lives.
I completed my BA in English Literature at the University of California, Santa Cruz. I earned my Master of Arts Degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of San Francisco and am licensed through the State of Minnesota as a Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a board approved supervisor.
I also enjoy keeping up with the people who used to be my children (sons in their mid 20’s), mountain biking, swimming, reading, and nurturing deep friendships.
