I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), Minnesota and a Licensed Addiction Dependency Counselor (LADC). I use the type of therapy that is custom-made for your particular circumstances which may include, anxiety, depression, trauma and other mental health and substance abuse issues. For most of us, life is both amazing and terrible. It is part of the human condition to suffer. There are many times when we get overwhelmed with our suffering and end up dealing with such mental health issues such as anxiety and depression and which, in turn, leads us to relationship and substance abuse issues. In order to build a rich full meaningful life, we need to learn how to reduce the impact and influence of painful thoughts and feelings and learn how to manage those issues that get in the way of moving our life forward. I work with adults, couples, families, teens, and significant others helping to put together a roadmap for moving your life forward. As we work together, we will focus on helping you develop the kind of psychological flexibility so that whatever life throws at you, you can have the tools to move your life forward toward a life of meaning, purpose, and well-being.
I am a licensed alcohol and drug counselor, currently in supervision to become a licensed professional clinical counselor. I specialize in serious and persistent mental health disorders and co-occurring substance use issues. I have experience working with individuals, couples, families, and groups in both residential and intensive outpatient settings. I employ an existential approach in which the client is encouraged to focus on free will, self-determination, and finding meaning. Despite whatever messages yourself, your family, your friends, or society has given you, you have value as a human being and as a unique individual. I would love the opportunity to meet you and provide direction in any way I am able.
