About

I have over 15 years’ experience working with individuals and groups in community mental health. I will suggest the most helpful areas to focus your energy on first. Your treatment plan will reflect your larger goals broken down into achievable objectives. I often assign homework between sessions. I am an active participant in therapy. I am an active listener and will ask questions, challenge assumptions and believe in you. My role is to guide, teach skills and provide helpful feedback. Your role is to show up, participate, tell me what isn't working for you and what is. Your opinions and perspectives are important to me.
My approach is eclectic, meaning I tailor my approach to meet my client's needs. My interventions often draw upon Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy skills education, mindfulness practices and Solution Focused Therapy. I will bring my authentic self, my great sense of humor, and my compassion to our work together.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. My life journey has taken me throughout the Midwest. I settled down in Minneapolis in 2005. I live with my spouse, daughter, mother-in-law and three cats. I love fall, enjoy a good pun, and can drink coffee anytime. Please request a free consultation by calling or requesting through my profile.
