30+ Years Serving the Minneapolis-Metro

Counseling & Therapy Specialist

I help individuals, couples, families and groups to benefit from insights they develop through their counseling and therapy. The process of therapy helps clients become self-reflective and teaches them to use that knowledge to understand their behavior.  I draw from my extensive training in a variety of therapeutic approaches to tailor the treatment for each situational need.

Specialties Include:

I believe that the basis for successful therapy is a strong therapeutic relationship. Building on this alliance, I use a variety of techniques to collaboratively help clients reach their goals. Therapy is not a one-size fits all endeavor. Depending on your needs, we may address your thought patterns, emotions, and/or behaviors that you’d like to change.

Research shows that Psychodynamic Therapy has lasting results whereas Cognitive Behavioral Therapy does not. It’s good to use CBT with other models of therapy.

Education & Psychotherapy Licenses:

I have trained under the best leaders in traditional and new therapies, including the leading researchers in the field of counseling and psychotherapy. This greatly deepens my understanding of people and increases my ability to help them understand their emotions, thinking, behavior and relationship patterns.
