I have been employed in mental health field since 1984.
I have been licensed in Minnesota as an Independent Clinical Social Worker since 2001.
I look at issues from a systemic focus: how do your 'systems' (family, job, school, friends, community, etc.) help or hinder your goals and dreams.
I utilize evidence based practices (proven to be effective through research) as well as what you know to be true about you. I work collaboratively with you. I am not "THE EXPERT" that will solve your problems; we put our respective expertise together to create meaningful change in your life.
I am passionate about helping you free yourself from your emotional distress.
I love dogs, nature, music, dance, movies, laughing and learning.
I am interested in holistic health practices, neuroscience, creativity as personal wellness factor, the relationship between science and spirituality.
I am available for life coaching via Skype, or phone, or in-person psychotherapy at my New Brighton, MN office.
I offer a free 30 minute consultation to see if we would be a good fit to work together.
I can be reached by phone at 651-321-1979, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
