About Me

As a licensed marriage and family therapist I utilize various therapeutic approaches based on the needs of the client. These approaches include narrative, solution focused, and experiential therapy techniques to help my clients achieve lasting change.

I graduated from the University of St Thomas in 2010 with a Bachelor's degree in psychology. After some time off I returned to school and received a Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Mary's University of Minnesota. I have been practicing as a fully licensed clinician since 2016.

In February 2022 I plan to complete the certification course offered by Postpartum Support International to better support my perinatal clients.

My services

Individual Therapy

I offer individual therapy for those who are struggling with issues related to pregnancy and symptoms that arise as a result of those issues. I will be certified through postpartum support international in February of 2022. 

Family Therapy

Issues related to growing a family can impact everyone. Sometimes having a space for a family to come together and communicate their thoughts and feelings in a non threatening environment can lead to joint family growth. 

Couples Therapy

Are you and your partner struggling with your relationship as a result of infertility or pregnancy related issues? Couples therapy is wonderful resource to open up with another and get the support for you to live your best lives together.
