Therapist serving Saint Paul, Minneapolis, Surrounding cities, and Greater Minnesota; specializes in treating Anxiety, Depression, life transitions, mood and personality disorders. My approach is based on the belief that it is vital to experience negative emotions. In fact, it's healthy to feel anxiety about life's ultimate concerns and is a sign that you care about your existence. I aim to help individuals address their specific issues, find value, meaning, and purpose in their lives; and collaborate toward building a strong inner ally. I explore how to use freedom to fully realize human nature and work to educate the mind and encourage the will to align with the individual's best interests. Life presents us with opportunities for reflection at all levels: be it self/individual, familial, or cultural. Each of us can change our lives in a way that honors our sovereignty and contributes to society. Empowered, balanced individuals are the foundation of strong families and communities- and I want to help you access the fulfilling life you desire.

Of course there is not a singular theory or modality that can be universally applied. I strive to bring a unique therapy tailored to each individual.
