The therapy process is personal in nature, therefore, I believe that it is very important for anyone who is seeking therapy find the right therapist for them. In my practice I rely on several theoretical approaches such as: interpersonal psychology, psychodynamics, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems. My eclectic approach develops a comprehensive and personal approach built on my premise: how we feel, think, and act is because of genetics, upbringing, and life experiences.
I am a licensed psychologist with over forty years of counseling experience working in college counseling centers, family sexual abuse treatment centers, sexual assault centers, community mental health centers, youth mental health centers and private practice. I currently have a full-time private practice in Minnesota working with adults.
My approach is collaborative; I work with the client to help them gain self-understanding in order for them to make positive changes in their life. My style of psychotherapy is active, engaging, and warm. I value a working alliance with a client to discover their feelings, thoughts, motivations, needs, and behaviors.
