“My style is to support you in connecting with and understanding your deepest agendas and to facilitate the expansion of your capacity to live authentically, with all the parts of yourself. Many people have an intuition of when it’s time to make changes, but are uncertain about how to do this, or where to begin. I’ll help you generate the right conditions for change by first working to thoroughly understand your inner landscape, and what it’s like to be you. I’ll assist you in refining your own instruction manual, find a useful balance between self-acceptance and self-discipline, and live a more integrated life. I bring an open mind, open heart, curiosity, creativity, and sometimes playfulness into my therapy work.

I have experience working with a wide variety of people navigating major life transitions, identity evolution, and issues including depression, anxiety, shame, breakups, divorce, imposter syndrome, career questions, self-esteem, addiction, quarter-life crisis, midlife crisis, covert (negative) narcissism, and existential explorations. I have previous experience working in assisted living facilities, hospice work, drug and alcohol counseling, and real estate. I’ve lived in Wisconsin, California, and now Minnesota for the past 11 years. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, bike rides, podcasts, and spending time with my dog.”
