About My Clients
I provide therapy to adults experiencing difficulties, conflicts, or dissatisfaction in their life. Together, we’ll identify what’s causing these problems by talking about your present, past, dreams, fears, strengths, creativity, and hopes. The goal is to help you feel better. Some areas where I might be helpful to you include: anxieties; addictions; unprocessed traumas; relationship difficulties; gender and sexuality issues; and life transitions.
My Background and Approach
Prior to starting my own practice, I was a clinical fellow at the Minnesota Psychoanalytic Society and Institute (MPSI), where I worked in a low-fee therapy clinic. I recently completed training in the two-year psychodynamic psychotherapy certificate program at MPSI. Previously, I interned in a community mental health center, where I worked with adults living with severe, persistent mental illness, and spent two years working in the addictions and recovery field. Before transitioning to a career in mental health, I taught languages, literature, and film for fifteen years. I earned my undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and MA, MSW, and PhD degrees from the University of Minnesota.
