I believe all clients hold the key to their own success and can be guided to that end in a safe, trusting, honest environment. Building relationship and skills for growth, understanding and healing are among my goals in therapy. My personal journey through adoption, trauma, abuse, raising a child with mental health concerns, spiritual enlightenment, natural mental health, divorce, and remarriage have become the gifts I share though therapy. I believe the keys essential to reaching any goal lies within each of us believing in ourselves and knowing that someone also believes in us.
My experience is in working with emotional dysregulation, anxiety, depression, selective mutism, trauma, oppositional behaviors, family change, loss and grief, parenting skills, adoption issues, spiritual awakening and trauma. I enjoy teaching adults and children how to take control of their lives in mind, body, and spirit to navigate a stressful world .
I am trained/certified in a wide variety of areas. Accelerated Resolution, Brainspotting, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Sand Tray, Mindfulness, NLP, EMDR, Coaching, Breathwork, Clinical Hypnotherapy, Trauma Focused, Healing Touch, Family Systems. I am also a Minnesota Board of Social Work Approved Clinical Supervisor.

I work with clients who may be struggling with depression or trauma related to their relationships or family. During our initial sessions, we will delve deeply into the issues at hand, and collaborate to create a plan for addressing them in a way that helps you get your life back. Most of my clients see a gradual lifting of symptoms within the first month and sustained improvement thereafter.

I've seen the greatest impact for clients and their trauma by utilizing Accelerated Resolution Therapy and/or Brainspotting. I've been amazed at the response and changes in clients after only a few sessions.
