Hello, I am a doctorate level licensed psychologist in Edina, MN. I've been in private practice for more than 20 years but have been working with children and families for over 30 years. I work primarily with teens and college students/young adults as well as adults, families, and provide parent support. I am holistic in my approach, utilizing Cognitive Behavioral, mindfulness, psychoeducation, and integrative health approaches to improving emotional health. I think the most important part of initiating therapy is finding a therapist that you connect with and is a 'good fit'.

I have worked with children and adults, both with and without intellectual/developmental challenges. My goal is to help people achieve a sense of mastery, autonomy, and purpose in their lives. By identifying and building on strengths you already have, we can work together to help create more balance and contentment in your life. I enjoy fostering mindfulness and other skills which reduce distress and build resiliency, and have co-authored a book on children and anxiety.

As a child and adolescent clinical psychologist, I strongly believe in the power of evidence-based psychology to improve the well-being of children, teens and young adults.
As a parent of a struggling teenage son, you want to do whatever you can to help get your teen on the right path. I help struggling teenage guys discover their identity, realize their strengths, and use those strengths to catapult into adulthood with a sense of competence and confidence. Adolescence is an exciting time where teens form their unique identity, build meaningful social connections, and learn to think in an innovative way. Ironically, what makes adolescence so exciting can also make it enormously stressful for both teens and their caretakers.
