I work at a group private practice in the North Loop of Minneapolis, seeing individuals and families in-person and virtually. In my practice, I incorporate client’s strengths into most sessions, by helping them identify small and big gains, in order to encourage empowerment of their self! I am often more of a listener in sessions, and assist to guide the processing and direction within the session. I offer a balance of problem solving and skills along with examining and processing experiences that led to the challenges currently being faced.

I currently work with adolescents (13+) and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma, life transitions, relationship difficulties, identity, and other stressors. I have experience working with diverse populations including LGBTQ+, adoptees, foster youth, parents, and families in a variety of settings including residential treatment, schools, and foster care system. I have training in Adaptive Internal Resources (AIR) Network, which assists with clients experiencing dissociation and complex trauma experiences. I also have training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TFCBT) and good knowledge of Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I also completed the Permanency and Adoption Competency Certificate (PACC) through the University of Minnesota.
