I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who works with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families who are experiencing a variety of challenges and life stressors. I provide a person-centered approach that meets clients wherever they are at and work hard to create a welcoming and safe environment that helps promote healing, growth, understanding and healthy relationships. My treatment approach is informed by my training within a family systems perspective, and I work to honor the unique social, emotional and spiritual needs of each client throughout our time together. My hope is to come alongside and support the goals of those seeking therapy and help them move towards greater insight, increased understanding, strengthened resiliency and meaningful change within their lives.
My clinical experience began while earning my undergraduate degree in Psychology during my first internship as an advocate for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault with the ACCESS organization. My second internship was completed at Washburn Center for Children within their therapeutic preschool program where I helped provide group therapy experiences for 3- and 4-year-old children within inner city Minneapolis. It is there that I discovered how much I enjoyed working with children and their families. When working to complete my Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Mount Mercy University, I participated in the Center's Graduate Clinical Training Program. After obtaining my degree and license, I was hired by the Center in 2018.
Everyone I come into contact with is unique and has their own story and experiences. I feel honored to have the privilege to come alongside people, be present and bear witness to the stories and experiences people share with me. I love listening to people and see myself as a stepping stone within their overall story as they work to achieve their goals and move toward healing and hope. When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband, reading, cooking, baking, watching TV and movies and being with family.
