My Areas of Practice
I am grateful to be returning to Park Nicollet and honored to be a clinical mental health practitioner working to enhance the lives of patients and their families by helping them to understand themselves, their challenges and reinforcing their strengths. I utilize evidenced-based practices: CBT, DBT, both in individual therapy and group therapy; as well as family based therapy, client-centered therapy and solution-focused therapy. I have worked in diverse settings: working bilingually in a Latino Mental Health clinic in St. Paul, working in a Community Mental Health clinic in South Minneapolis, working in a HealthPartners clinic in South Minneapolis, working in a Community Mental Health clinic in Southwestern Minnesota, working in Park Nicollet/Melrose Institute; and working in the ER at Regions Hospital in downtown St. Paul. Truly I have been enriched in knowledge and experience, by listening to patients tell their personal stories.

I am a second generation Polish American who was born and raised around the Minneapolis area. I am an avid gardener and I feel I learned to be a better gardener while living in rural Minnesota. I go to the theater, attend art shows, and listen to indie/alternative music. I enjoy observing and photographing wildlife in their natural habitats. I am a fan of college and professional football.
