Welcome to a place of support for those relationships most important to you. I offer therapy in a relational context which explores the interconnectedness between self and others. I believe this is vital to well living. When relationships are out of balance, disconnectedness can occur. By creating awareness, empowerment can be found and utilized for change. I invite you to better navigate yourself and your relations!

Many clients who felt anxious about beginning therapy have expressed how quickly they felt comfortable with me. I consider it a great privilege to work with teens and parents during such formative years of growth and transition. My goal is to provide a safe environment that is both supportive and challenging.

As infants, we need relationships to survive. Psychotherapy is about developing a trusting and safe relationship with another and using this relationship as secure platform to stand on while working together. Together we will explore your desires in life and what may be standing in the way of more peaceful and satisfying relationships and achieving your life goals. As symptoms arise and cause distress and unhappiness, I see these as a sign that things are ready to be worked though and understood. Using the mind, body, and spirit, we work to create more peaceful, meaningful relationships with self and others.

Finding a therapist with whom you feel safe and comfortable is essential for a successful outcome. Clients have told me that I am easy to connect with and tend to put people at ease quickly. Creating a warm, respectful and non-judgmental atmosphere is my first priority. I also feel that laughter/humor can be very therapeutic when appropriate!

Albert Einstein is credited with the saying that it is impossible to solve a problem from within the same consciousness that created it. We can sabotage our own best interests or struggle with defensive routines that can blind us to our own thinking. Chronic anxiety can reduce our abilities over time and erode strengths. Many grew up in dysfunctional families that carry a legacy of confusion and family pain. They suffer from fear, anger, hurt, distrust, loneliness, sadness, shame, guilt, or numbness and struggle with the ability to have fun, or be emotionally intimate with others.

Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Saint Paul using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
