My Areas of Practice

As a psychologist, I work with patients to achieve their personal goals.  It is my belief that therapy is a collaborative process and through a therapeutic relationship which is honest and trusting, patients can increase personal awareness and find healing, balance and acceptance in their life.  I have experience working with a variety of clinical concerns and have extensive experience working with individuals suffering with high emotional intensity.  I utilize evidenced based techniques which most often draw from dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and relational therapy. 

Areas of particular interest include- eating disorders, depression, anxiety, managing chronic illness, life transitions, relationship struggles, borderline personality and chemical dependency.

Personal

I was born and raised in Wisconsin and have called the Twin Cities home for more than 15 years.  I often spend free time with family and friends.  I enjoy the daily adventures in life with my husband and three children, including fraternal twins, and a dog.  My hobbies include reading, exercise, finding new and unique restaurants and knitting.
