Anxiety, discouragement, and sadness are becoming commonplace, with a fear of the unknown. Individual therapy for adults and adolescents, couple, and family therapy are available.

A client who comes to me with honesty, is willing to work towards their goals is an ideal client. Anxiety, trauma, depression and family problems are problems that I treat with skill and sensitivity. Parents who need help parenting, children who suffer from a trauma, teens who are depressed and stressed out, couples who can't figure out why they are fighting so much when they really love each other, wives who struggle with low self esteem, people of any age who are very lonely, all need someone to help them sort out their challenges. "We are all just trying to do life!" That often that means asking for help.

I help children, adolescents, and young adults become the best version of themselves mentally, physically, socially, and emotionally. I understand the demands and pressures placed on them and utilize a “Values, Holistic, Mindfulness, Well-being” model to help them achieve “Psychological Flexibility.” This means becoming more aware of thoughts and feelings, having more control over actions and performance, and becoming the best version of themselves.

Accepting New Clients! For whatever brings you to therapy, I will foster a safe and open space that provides support and validation while being a non-judgmental witness to your personal story. Working collaboratively, we will create and work towards therapeutic goals through the exploration of past and current experiences and how they have built beliefs, making connections from past and present. As we explore these connections, we will work to identify how they create negative or unrealistic core beliefs, while instilling more helpful and positive ones that can lead to greater overall wellbeing and a more positive sense of self.

My mission is to empower individuals to grow and reach their full potential by working through life's challenges in a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship. Sessions are client-focused, allowing room for the individual to create personal goals. The therapeutic relationship is a safe place to explore the self and process problematic or stressful issues. By sharing thoughts and feelings, core beliefs unfold, allowing for greater insight. In therapy, we can work to diminish turmoil, restore our connections to others and reduce feelings of anxiety, sadness and frustration.

I once read a story about a sea lion that somehow ended up in a barren desert. It was dry and parched and the closest thing resembling the sea was a mud puddle. He was sad and lost and knew he didn't belong, but he had been there so long and knew of nothing else, so he considered it "home". Too often, we find ourselves like this sea lion, living an unfulfilling existence, or in surroundings that aren't consistent with who we are. We passively accept our lot in life or sabotage efforts to live with passion and joy.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Chanhassen, 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 Chanhassen 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.
