PRACTICE OWNER, lPCC SUPERVISOR & PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in the state of Minnesota. I am approved by the Florida Department of Health to also see individuals in Florida via telehealth. For about 27 years, I have been providing services in the mental health field; Counseling for the past 9. I practice primarily from a trauma-focused, person-centered (it’s all about you and the gifts you already have) and systems (relationship dynamics) perspective; incorporating other therapy techniques as needed. Because of this, I would call myself an Eclectic Counselor above all else. I have a Master’s of Science degree in Community Counseling and a Master’s level certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Play Therapist and have been trained in EMDR and have completed training in AIR Network and IFS. Humor, compassion, empowerment and honesty are often present as I help others work through whatever challenges they may bring to our meetings. I work towards building genuine and trusting relationships with the people I work with, as I believe this is the true space for change. I also like to encourage use of experiences and art or play to explore, learn and make meaning.
I am excited to join you on your path towards making change and can’t wait to get started.
Some of the areas I have experience and training in are:
0-5 Assessments & Treatment, ADHD, Adjustment/Transitions, Attachment, AIR Network, Anxiety/Stress, Behavioral Issues, CBT, Depression, EMDR Trained, Emotion Dysregulation, Family Conflict/Changes, Grief/Loss, Internal Family Systems (IFS), LGBTQIA+, Motivational Interviewing, Parenting, Play Therapy, Self-Exploration/Self-Esteem, Telemedicine & Trauma.
