Our path in life is not linear. At times curves and bumps can knock us down and alter our course. While not always bad, we may need a helping hand to help assist us along the way. As a therapist, my goal is to help walk with you through these times and see that you held the map all along.

We all need a helping hand at times, and I have had a passion for helping people for as long as I can remember. I work with women, especially those who have a history of childhood trauma. Trauma survivors often have mental and physical health symptoms instead of memories. Symptoms common to trauma survivors are chronic depression, anxiety, mood swings, anger issues, suicidal ideation, self-harm, low self-esteem, chronic pain, and Borderline Personality Disorder. It is my goal to help trauma survivors heal and overcome feelings of never being “good enough,” so they can find peace and contentment and reach their full potential.

My focus is on addressing social, biological and psychosocial aspects of addiction and mental health and how they intertwined in our lives. I believe that every person has the strengths and skills within themselves to create a positive change within their life. My goal is to create a purposeful, safe space where you feel comfortable to explore your inner self, experience growth, and feel supported. I also hope to create a non-judgmental, confidential space where you feel comfortable being vulnerable. Vulnerability can oftentimes feel uncomfortable, but with this uncomfortableness comes growth.

Did you know that when you experience conflict in your relationship, the issue is usually not what it seems? We engage in struggles with our partner for reasons that are often unknown--even to ourselves. By exploring some of the hidden reasons we chose the person we are with and learning the true nature of our conflicts with one another, we can ultimately grow toward a more satisfying, rewarding relationship. Your partner doesn't want to join you? That's OK. You might be surprised how much can change by the things you learn on your own.

Congratulations on your first step towards healing and growth. The thought of therapy can be overwhelming and empowering at the same time. Life is full of transitions, some of them are by our choice, others are imposed on us. I have had the privilege of hearing peoples stories and helping them gain insight and tools along their journey to a more satisfying sense of self and life.

What type of Brainerd mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Brainerd?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
