Have you ever wondered about your adoption story? Has there ever been doubt, fear, anger, pain or confusion when it comes up? What’s it been like for you to process your personal experience of birth family, loss, grief, race, identity, or even those seemingly benign curiosities about your narrative that come up from time to time? For parents, of course you want to help your children as they embark on that path. This can often feel uncertain or overwhelming, with so many subtle nuances that feel way too complicated to handle without appropriate support.

My aim is to provide a space for you to feel safe. A space where you are important and your words are trusted. A space to be heard, with dignity and without judgement. If you are feeling stuck, lonely, frustrated, or sad in your life or in your relationship you don't need to go through it alone. You don’t deserve to struggle in silence. Whether you are dealing with complex trauma or just feeling a little off; nobody’s problems are too big or too small for talk therapy. For couples: You may feel that you are at the end of your rope with your relationship or it just needs a little tune up, either way therapy can help.

My therapeutic approach is influenced by Narrative and Dialectical Behavioral therapies, somatic and mindfulness practices, and trauma-focused techniques.
As a human navigating this ever-changing world, each of us holds knowledge, power, and peace within ourselves. Especially now amidst health unrest, we might not always feel this way. My therapeutic goal is to hold space for you, support you, and help you enrich your life as part of mental and emotional wellness. My therapeutic vision is to convey "every day therapy for every day people”. I am committed to social justice and believe that larger social dynamics can influence a person's mental health. I strive to have a validating space for all identities, and I advocate for anti-oppression on both community and systemic platforms.

My approach to therapy involves a relational model with emphasis on the narrative of your life with its themes and patterns as well as the attachment style you learned from your childhood.
I believe that every ones of us bears a glory, beauty and strength. That sounds nice, but the reality is our stories are full of brokenness, pain, darkness, and shame – choking off the truth of who we really are. My aim is to help you grow in understanding your story, the “mythos”, that has shaped you and how you see yourself, God and the world around you. I believe that by inviting you to sit together in those moments of deep pain and darkness in your journey we can start to understand the true and deeper mythos of our lives - that we are loved and known by God.

Narrative Therapists
Narrative Therapy uses the client's storytelling to indicate the way they construct meaning in their lives, rather than focusing on how they communicate their problem behaviors. Minneapolis Narrative Therapy embraces the idea that stories actually shape our behaviors and our lives and that we become the stories we tell about ourselves. There are helpful narratives we can choose to embrace as well as unhelpful ones. Although it may sound obvious, the power of storytelling is to elevate the client--who is the authority of their narrative--rather than the therapist, as expert. Check these therapists for find Narrative Therapy in Minneapolis.
