My professional experiences have taught me that my passion is working with children and families. I have a wealth of knowledge in infant and child mental health. Also, I work with children who have trauma histories and the families that care for them. I have experience assisting with adoption issues, family work, anxiety, depression, PTSD, coping with life change, and child and adolescent mental health issues. Working collaboratively with parents is also an essential part of my therapy practice.

I see clients of any age, however, I focus largely on play therapy with children and their families as it is a growing passion of mine.
If you are looking for a therapist who is present, genuine, and offers a caring and therapeutic space, then we might be a match. I love working with clients who are brand new to therapy and might feel a bit nervous. And clients who have been in therapy previously and may already know what they want out of the experience. Wherever you are on your journey, my mission is to meet you right where you are and walk alongside you to achieve the goals and dreams you have, or perhaps work to develop them altogether. I am also trained in Brainspotting which can be especially powerful for clients with a history of trauma.

Waitlist for new clients
I have an extensive background working with child and adult survivors of trauma.
Are you tired of therapists who say that they do relationship therapy only to have you practice basic communication skills? Are you tired of the lack of progress and want to get unstuck once and for all? I specialize in making sure that time does continue to pass by while you are feeling weighed down in the status quo. I'm straightforward and honest. My clients describe me as annoyingly neutral when they try to get me to take sides against their partners. They also describe me as willing to ask the hard questions and willing to keep people accountable. I love helping people navigate every stage of coupling or uncoupling.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Blaine, MN provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Blaine build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
