Clinical & Licensing Supervisor
I am licensed in the state of MN as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). For over 25 years, I have been providing services in the mental health field; Counseling for the past 8. I practice primarily from a 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, a Master's level certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a Play Therapist and have been trained in EMDR. 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 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, 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.
