A Bit About You...

You've perfected the art of seeming like you have it all together, but on the inside it feels like things are falling apart. 

You're dealing with high amounts of stress, your worry keeps you up at night, and you have difficulties saying nice things to yourself. 

You have big dreams and life goals, but somehow you can't quite keep up with day-to-day demands. 

Outside influences and pressures are bringing you down. 

You feel empty, exhausted and unfulfilled. 

You have thought about therapy, but you hesitate to take that step. You need to do something different, but you worry that therapy is too drastic.


Coming to therapy does not mean you're crazy, that there is something drastically wrong with you, or that you need to be fixed. Coming to therapy is taking care of yourself, finding security in who you are, and working through the challenges that are holding you back.

Therapy might just be exactly what you need.


I'm glad you're here!


Finding the right therapist is time consuming and daunting. You spend loads of time searching profiles, reading about therapeutic approaches, and wondering if or when you should reach out. 


Please take a look around and if you like what you see, give me a call or schedule a free, no obligation 15-minute phone consultation. I'd love to help you get started!

Get to Know Me

Hi, I'm so happy that you are here! I am a licensed mental health therapist in Southwest Minneapolis. I am passionate about empowering millennials to be more authentic, break out of the mold and do things a little different, and make the changes they are seeking. I'm also pretty great with teens!

I practice from a holistic perspective integrating the mind, body, and spirit into the therapeutic process. I help individuals gain awareness of the connections between emotions, thoughts, physical experiences and spiritual understandings. This deeper understanding of your whole self can lead to enhanced self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-acceptance.
