My Areas of Practice

I am a doctoral-level licensed clinical psychologist who has been practicing psychotherapy in a variety of settings since 2008.  Clinically, I am interested in helping adults struggling with disordered eating, body image dissatisfaction, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, trauma, interpersonal relationship problems, self worth, sexual concerns, and identity development.  I provide LGBT-affirmative therapy.  My initial focus in therapy is building a collaborative, empowering, accepting relationship that facilitates my client's self-compassion and openness to change, and I tailor my interventions based on my clients' individual needs.

I consider it an incredible privilege to be part of a person’s healing journey and to walk beside him or her during very vulnerable times.  I strive to help individuals explore the mind/body/spirit connection and develop curious, non-judgmental, and compassionate attitudes toward their own thoughts, feelings, values, and behaviors while simultaneously developing and practicing concrete skills and behavioral changes.  Through a careful balance of support and challenge, I help my clients mindfully navigate the complex process of healing and create meaningful life changes.

Personal

Outside of work, I relax by spending time with friends and family, particularly my husband, my adorable black cat, and my three nephews.  I enjoy photography, art, making jewelry, gardening, walking and biking around the Minneapolis lakes, browsing antique shops, and finding humor in everyday life.  In my free time, I volunteer for Minnesotans United for All Families, the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society, and the St. Paul Area Council of Churches.
