Vulnerability is hard. To reach out for help takes a great deal of courage. It also is an important act of resiliency. At the heart of my work as a therapist is the belief that every individual possesses a unique and important story. It is through the storytelling experience where we begin to explore, question, examine, and re-shape pieces of our narrative that are no longer serving us, while also building on strengths we often overlook. As a therapist, I believe being invited along in such a journey to be an incredibly special privilege.

I find that the most important part of our work together is building a trusting and honest working alliance together. Utilizing a trauma-informed approach, my therapeutic style is grounded in person-centered therapy and incorporates aspects of CBT, DBT, and mindfulness practice. I specialize in providing therapeutic services to adults and adolescents. 

I specialize in working with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, OCD, depression and other related mood disorders, substance abuse concerns, trauma, and PTSD.  I have clinical experience and am trained in ERP, an evidence-based practice designed to address OCD.  I have clinical experience implementing Prolonged Exposure therapy, an evidence-based treatment aimed to address PTSD.  Utilizing a strength-based approach, guided by the encouragement of self-compassion practices, I am passionate about working with individuals to rediscover their resiliency.

I have experience working in various levels of care, from Inpatient Services, Partial Hospitalization Programs, Intensive Outpatient Programs, and Outpatient Therapy. This clinical experience can help to conceptualize the spectrum of mental health services, offering direction, and understanding navigating care options. Through our work together, you will observe my commitment to providing quality, client-focused care. As finding the therapist who is the right fit for you is very important, I invite you to please reach out with any questions.

I am not in-network with Health Partners. Maple Grove Therapy and Wellness has several therapists who are in-network. Please continue to read through other bios to see if they might be a fit or call with questions.

I am fascinated by the infinite variety of ways humans can get themselves in and out of trouble. I’m passionate about helping others and understand that the therapeutic relationship is equally important to the technique being used. I value getting to know one another in a completely non-judgmental and person-centered manner. You are the expert on your experience; I’m here to help you explore it.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC). I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a master’s degree in Educational Psychology. My interests include anxiety, panic, depression, self-esteem, self-efficacy, chemical dependency, behavioral addiction, trauma, and empowerment’s impact on everyday functioning.

I believe therapy is best when done in a judgment free, safe environment. My approach is to be a partner with my clients in a journey through struggles and successes on the way to a better, more empowered life. Along this path I can offer encouragement as well as support  while seeking to help others feel deeply understood no matter where they are coming from.

My background is working with families as well as individual adults and adolescents. I have experience working with chemical dependency, family strain, blocks in communication patterns, anxiety, depression, self-harm, and low self-esteem. I am open to seeing individuals, couples, and families. 

I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Dependency and Community Psychology. While obtaining my degree I became very interested in how family can impact people’s day-to-day lives. I went on to earn  a master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. 

My approach is based mostly in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) though I like to draw from many counseling theories and approaches. I offer a realistic approach that focuses on identifying what is in your control and how choices impact one another.

Often the choice to begin therapy feels vulnerable for many. I provide a warm and empathic space to explore stressors, difficulties with adjustment, shame, or mental health symptoms that are impacting your quality of life. I enjoy exploring values and increasing awareness into beliefs and cognitions to allow individuals to make change. I use several modalities including Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), solution-focused and mindfulness-based strategies in addition to several trauma therapy techniques including Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART), Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TF-CBT) to help you reach your goals. I approach therapy using a holistic mindset taking all areas of wellness into consideration (mental, physical, intellectual, environmental, spiritual, financial, social). I have a special passion for serving individuals living with autoimmune conditions including Diabetes, Lupus, and Hypothyroidism among others. I am familiar with the complexities surrounding shame, grief, and burnout in living with these conditions and I am willing to hold space despite where you may find yourself in your journey.

I began my career working with children and families in youth residential treatment dealing with co-occurring issues (mental health/substance use disorder/behavioral needs). I went on to receive my Master’s Degree in Social Work from University of St Thomas/St Catherine University in 2013. I have worked in a variety of settings including family medicine clinic, school social work, and eating disorder treatment. I have also worked abroad in Australia serving individuals struggling with substance use disorder and homelessness.

Additionally, I am also an approved clinical license supervisor through both the Board of Social Work and Board of Behavioral Health for clinicians working towards independent licensure. I find balance in connecting with family and friends, spending time near water, traveling, and watching incredibly cheesy movies.

Life can feel overwhelming, scary, confusing, and hopeless, full of emotions and unpredictable. So often, we are stuck in the past, haunted by previous experiences, weighed down by shame and guilt, or overcome by emotions. I believe everyone possesses remarkable resiliency and is passionate about helping people find their happiness, gain new skills and perspectives, understand more, and find their strength as they grow and heal.

I have experience working with all ages and specialize in working with pre-teens, adolescents, young adults, and families. I have helped support individuals and families struggling with a wide array of difficulties such as trauma, anxiety, depression, attachment, parenting struggles, behavioral challenges, self-esteem, ADHD, anger, school or work difficulties, and chemical dependency. My approach is strength-based, relational, and client-centered, focused on developing a supportive, respectful, and honest relationship with clients to help them move toward growth and personal empowerment. I specialize training in evidence-based therapies and trauma therapy of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).  I am also trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).

My path to becoming a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker began at the University of Wisconsin-Stout, where I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. While working at an inpatient treatment center, I obtained a Master’s of Social Work degree from the University of St. Thomas and St. Catherine’s University.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults. I provide individual, family, and couples therapy. I am trained in EMDR, which I use during individual sessions with both adults and children when treating trauma, anxiety, relationship stress, and negative self-beliefs. I am also trained in EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy), which I use in couples therapy and individual therapy. I take a relational approach in sessions and have experience in helping others work through conflict and anger when working both with individuals or couples. Whether you’re married, dating, experiencing a breakup, or having difficulties with your parents, siblings, or friends, therapy can be a tool to help you explore these relationships and feel more grounded in life. 

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and have been providing therapy since 2015. My experience includes working with children (12+) and youth to build up their coping skills toolbox while experiencing depression, anxiety, and impulse control issues in a residential setting. I also have experience providing family education and support for parents of children suffering from a variety of mental health issues, including depression, suicidal ideation, anxiety, trauma, and eating disorders.

I am passionate about the relationships in my life and enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I feel happiest when I am outside or doing yoga. In 2019, I went to India to learn more about how to incorporate yoga and mindfulness into my life.

I seek to help people find hope and light in dark times. I love working with youth, young adults, and adults to help mend concerns and disconnects within important relationships because relationships are a foundation of life. In addition to relationships, I love working one-on-one to help clients find new ways to heal and cope with life situations: mental illness, life changes, grief, loss, transitions, and any other obstacle that is ever-present in life today. Each person has their own story, and I am humbled to help clients navigate theirs.  My mission is to help clients to navigate the stressors of their daily life better and develop a life in which they are proud.

I offer client-centered care, helping to guide clients to develop skills to manage distress within their current functioning. I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy and use this as a skill to help clients manage the distress of daily life and process through trauma. I have an added skill of utilizing faith as a tool to help manage and navigate life situations.  I also utilize Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to help understand and organize human behavior and how to make changes in daily life. For my own balance, I love spending time with family, my husband, playing piano, gardening, and going for runs.

I have found that the most important part of my job is to help an individual or family gain a better understanding of their own values, emotions, and communication patterns.  Once we can define our own needs, we can then work to communicate those needs to our support system more effectively. I work with individuals, families, and couples to accomplish those goals. I am a direct and transparent communicator and have found a balance between a nurturing and firm approach.

I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which is designed to help an individual determine if their current thought patterns are helpful or unhelpful and how to challenge the unhelpful ones. I also utilize Prolonged Exposure and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Both models help an individual to process through a traumatic event.  I have experience in facilitating Exposure and Ritual Prevention Therapy for Anxiety Disorders as well as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

I have worked in a variety of settings including a school, inpatient hospitals, residential treatment, partial hospital programs, intensive outpatient group programming, and outpatient therapy.  These various settings have allowed me to gain a depth of perspective and a better understanding of the journey that an individual or family may take when they experience mental health.
