I have over a decade of experience as a psychologist working with ethnically, economically, and gender diverse populations of children, teens, young adults and families.
Are you a teenager or young adult struggling to find your path in life? Are you still figuring out who you are and what you want out of life? You are not alone. Adolescence is a time of incredible transition and identity formation, and can be stressful and confusing. Despite how challenging this time is and that fact that our frontal lobe has not fully developed, we are asked to make some of the most important decisions of our lives (academic, occupational, relational, vocational). Adolescence and young adults often struggle with anxiety, depression, past trauma, substance use, and identity formation.

Working with children, adolescents and adults who struggle with anxiety is one of my specialties.
Accepting New Clients for kids/teens and adults! You're here because you've had enough. It's exhausting to feel so stressed, anxious or on edge every day. Maybe you've tried a therapist or two in the past and they just kinda let you talk about your problems without truly helping, so you feel as crappy as you did when you began. If you are ready to dive deeper into what's going on and get at the root of the issue so that you can finally get your life back to normal, we are ready to work with you! You need an expert to help you process out what's keeping you stuck in order to become your best self. Change is waiting for you. Welcome!

I have practiced for 39 years in Minnesota, seeing children, adults, couples and families. My practice currently is primarily with adults and couples (and adult teens) who are seeking a therapist who is collaborative, offers guidance and new perspectives, and believes the client is ultimately in charge of change. I value awareness, mindfulness and the process of living out a personal story that is based on strengths and hopefulness. Above all, I believe that if people feel respected and cared for they are capable of growth and moving through even the most difficult times.
