I believe that all bodies are good bodies, that to find self-acceptance you must explore your self-hate, and that authentic personal growth looks different for everyone. I am passionate about practicing in a client-centered way and utilizing a feminist approach to explore and challenge notions of boundary-setting, self-exploration, guilt, success, progress, people-pleasing, and diet culture (BMI, ‘Obesity epidemic,’ why diets don’t work, restriction, symptom swapping, minimalism, etc.) I work fulltime at a nationally-renowned eating disorder clinic in the Twin Cities area.

Despite being a professional by day, you have no idea how your life at home started feeling so chaotic and out of control. You and your partner don’t communicate like you used to and you certainly don’t have fun together anymore. Life is consumed by kids, sports, work, and errands. You aren’t having as much sex as you used to either. It feels like you lost yourself along the way and you don’t feel heard or understood by your partner when you try to talk. Things always end up in a fight. You’re exhausted and irritable and you feel alone. Friends and family mean well but they don’t get it. Not really. You need help.
You’re thinking lately that things feel off, out of balance. You feel disconnected. For you it might mean you have a lot on your plate or feel overwhelmed. Or maybe you’re struggling to say how and what you actually feel to your important people and this feels like not being heard. And maybe you’ve been thinking – or even hearing from others – that you haven’t been showing up as your best self lately. You might be noticing this in your mood or in your enjoyment of things - including your relationship. It's all been a little much.
Do you feel like you are pretending - that you’ve got it all together and that your life has a purpose? Do you feel out of control or increasingly frustrated about your situation, and terrified that you will not be able to find a way out? Do you, unsuccessfully, try suppressing these negative feelings? Are your relationships suffering and filled with pain?

Starting out with a new therapist or beginning therapy for the first time can feel scary, maybe even downright terrifying.

I approach therapy as a collaboration. We are a team. You set the destination you want to get to, and I’m here to help you navigate.
