My philosophy is based on the social work premise that as a therapist I must meet the client where the client is...meaning that I want to understand your needs and goals to help you create the life you want. I offer therapy to assist clients with difficulties associated with anxiety, depression, grief and loss, PTSD, sexual identity and transgender issues. Women in all stages of life and folks transitioning to new identities are of special interest to me. I am passionate about providing specialized services, including trauma processing, to meet the psychological and emotional needs of law enforcement officers and their families.

I served as a national trainer on sensitive transgender health care within the VA Health Care System for six years.
I provide a safe, respectful, nonjudgmental setting to explore and discover solutions to diverse challenges. A critical element of therapy is the development of a trusting relationship between the client and therapist and can impact the healing process. Healing is a unique and individual process, as such, I believe it is important to learn of the uniqueness of each client and their goals for therapy. I work with diverse populations, including LGBTQ adolescents and adults. I have been an advocate/trainer/educator on the health and well-being of LGBTQ people for over 20 years.

I particularly delight in working with queer and transgender teenagers and young adults.
(she/her) Asking for help is one of the hardest things to do. Thank you to the parts of you brave enough to come to this space, ready to ask "can we hold the hard things together?". The answer is yes. That's exactly what I am here for. I could use fancy words to describe what I do but I want to start by saying that what happens in therapy is about what we both bring to our relationship. I hope that it is a place of empathy, compassion, and trust. I hope that our time together deepens your belief in yourself as a whole person, bigger than what has happened to you.

Real change comes from understanding why our own impulses and behaviors hold us back from experiencing our true potential and discovering the skills to create the change we seek. I believe in a holistic, person-centered approach to therapy that helps people find the answers that were inside them all along.

My experience teaching courses in French and world literature and queer, feminist, and transgender theory also informs the way that I listen and support what is creative—and what is writing and written—in my clients.
As a Candidate-Analyst of Lacanian psychoanalysis, I will tune in to what’s causing suffering in your life. Symptoms and crises appear at precise moments in our lives, with logics of their own linked to the unsaid and the unspeakable. This is why the one "rule" of psychoanalysis is free association: saying anything and everything that comes to mind. With the aid of your dreams, which provide access to the unconscious, we will enter into what is at the heart of what is not working in your life, exploring what you want and what is out of control---not in order to "cure" or get rid of it, but to free what's acting in it.

Transgender Therapists
We should make clear that not all the therapists listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialize in helping with aspects of being transgender in Minnesota and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in Minnesota or for a Minnesota transgender therapist these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in Minnesota may meet the criteria for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria (historically called gender identity disorder (GID)) "only if being transgender causes distress or disability." This distress is referred to as gender dysphoria.

The professionals listed here include transgender friendly therapists in Minnesota, transgender friendly therapists in Minnesota, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly counselors.

Counseling for transgender issues in Minnesota can help those living a transgendered life or transgender relationship; or family members coming to understand the life of their transgender child or sibling.
