How many therapists did your parents have you see as a kid? Has anybody in your life commented on your "adoption issues"? How many times a day do you ask yourself where and how do I fit in? Maybe the mindset you used to help yourself survive childhood is now hindering your growth in adulthood. Why aren't there more therapists who are adoptees? These are some of many questions and issues I hope that we can work on together. I aspire, because I am an adoptee, to have you spend less time explaining what adoption was, and more time working on current issues.
I have been providing clinical services in the Twin Cities and Central Minnesota for 15 years, focusing on underserved communities. I am a transracially adopted male born in Quito, Ecuador and raised in rural Minnesota in a primarily Scandinavian environment.
I use CBT and Solution Focused Brief Therapy with people to work through their challenges and achieve their goals. My extensive experience comes from working with individuals in acute crisis, cumulative trauma, adoption issues, anger management, serious and persistent mental illness, Dual Diagnosis, and parenting issues facing parents of adult children.
