I am devoted to providing solutions-focused therapy in an effort to help patients reclaim their lives from eating disorders, weight issues, and other mental health obstacles, with emphasis on improving the mind/body connection. I have been in the field for over 20 years, and a team member at PNC for over 15 years. It has been both challenging and rewarding, and never a dull moment! I especially appreciate the skills and talents of a multidiscliplinary team, and admire their dedication. Previously, I have practiced at the Mayo Clinic, and provided in-home family therapy before that. In my spare time, I rejuvenate through a variety of entertainment and recreational activities, including an adventure club, dinner club and book club, as well as kayaking and cross country skiing. I have also been involved in community theater in the area, and enjoy singing, dancing and acting as an outlet. I continue to support the Methodaires, a women’s song and dance troupe that I participated in for several years, which presents a Spring Show as a fundraiser for the International Diabetes Center at Park Nicollet and the Park Nicollet Cancer Center. Last but not least, I relish the time I get to spend with my husband our 11 grandchildren. We often head back to my home town of Duluth to walk the canal, hang out at Park Point or drive up the North Shore.
