    I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) and my past experience includes working with professionals in medical & pharmaceutical health care. I received my Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling and Marriage & Family Therapy from the College of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences at Argosy University and my undergraduate degree from the University of St. Catherine. I received my Master’s Degree in Theology & Spirituality (MAT) from the University of St. Catherine in St. Paul, MN.  Additionally, I practice EMDR Therapy and am a Certified Prepare & Enrich Counselor.

    At Twin Cities Mental Health & Couples Center, I work collaboratively with individuals, couples, & families to help them cultivate a deeper self-awareness, discover new ways of expression, transform dysfunctional patterns, have more satisfying relationships and ensue a more meaningful life. Research has shown having purpose and meaning in life increases overall well-being and life satisfaction, improves mental and physical health, enhances resiliency and self-esteem, and decreases the chances of depression. My areas of interest include, but are not limited to: individual counseling, couple communication, sexual/emotional intimacy, family life stage issues, PTSD, anxiety & depression, overall mental health, ambiguous grief & loss, cancer-related issues and transformation of consciousness.

    My systemic, non-judgmental, holistic and integrative process integrates family structure, relationship dynamics, specific cognitive- behavioral, experiential, Internal Family Systems, EMDR and spirituality/mindfulness approaches. Words that embody my beliefs and values in the therapeutic relationship are acceptance, respect, empathy, perspective, challenge, meaning & change.
