Licensed psychotherapist/family therapist who has been practicing in the Minneapolis and Edina areas for over 35 years.
I am a highly trained therapist providing individual, marriage, family and group psychotherapy for a wide range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, self-esteem, addictions or just wanting more out of life. I provide therapy for short or long term work. I help create a comfortable and safe relationship where vulnerable issues can be explored and understood together.
Therapy is about empowering individuals and helping them to develop more fulfilling lives. In my office, clients are guided to explore past experiences and their impact on present emotions and behaviors. I help clients to process and deal with issues to gain a greater knowledge of themselves.
Through the therapeutic process, we delve into the unconscious and bring deep-seated issues to the surface, so that each client gains the ability to direct his or her own life. I have been helping people develop their personal strengths to understand and adjust their ways of relating to others for over 35 years. I have seen countless clients transform themselves through therapy.
I believe that the relationship between a therapist and client is central to effectively processing issues to achieve desired change. Clients know me as a compassionate listener, a keen observer and someone who challenges them in a way that helps them grow. I help create a comfortable and safe relationship where vulnerable issue can be explored and understood together.
