WHO I HELP
We are all in the midst of a difficult and scary transition. We're trying to figure out how to hold onto ourselves, what we know, and the things that we hold dear. It's all so uncomfortable and filled with whirlingly unbearable emotions. It may seem like too much to even get your head and heart around.
My passion lies in supporting and empowering people to bravely move through the complex transitions that come up in their lives; I am part therapist, holding space for life's ambiguities, and part coach, cheering you on.
We're in this together. There are 3 extrinsic things that make humans happy - personal growth, relationships, and helping people. We need each other, now, more than ever; to connect and talk and validate the swirl of this unknown.
We need to piece together creative routines and our "new normal" realities. I can support you as you create new ways to take care of yourself in this hard time.
I believe that challenging events can be a catalyst for connection and growth, personally and nationally. Therapy is a safe haven to sift through the confusion and process uncomfortable feelings so that you can come back to yourself.
Anxiety is in the air and it's it's easy to absorb. You deserve a safe space to get support and learn research-based tools to calm the swirls of uncertainty.
I am a Relationship Therapist … but you could actually call me your partner in self-reflection. I am compassionate, warm, down to earth, and have a ton of empathy for how we deal with the complexities of relationships. I bring a healthy dose of humor to the work that we do in therapy. Working on yourself is freaking hard, so why make it harder than it already is, thank you very much.
I live in South Minneapolis. I was an actor in my last chapter, and so thankful to have found work that connects with people’s stories in a similar way. I am socially conscious, LGBTQ friendly, and do my best to work on being aware of my privilege and how it affects the world around me.
