Education: BAS in Community Health Education and Masters in Social Work from UMD. Licensed as an Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the state of Minnesota since 2004.
I’ve worked in mental health for 30 years and I feel honored to have met so many people who have allowed me to hear their stories of resilience. I have several approaches to counseling but my predominant approach includes building connections through mutuality, empathy, and acceptance which I learned from Relational Cultural Theory (RCT). I’m a generalist practitioner and have experience working with people who have concerns about depression, anxiety, trauma, relationships, self-esteem, identity development, stressors, adjustments/transitions, phase of life, substance use, social justice, and racism.
