I am passionate relationships and so I love working with couples and families in therapy. I specialize in treating couples who have grown apart and feel disconnected. These couples be struggling with infertility, the stress of being a parent, or may have trouble communicating. They may also be reeling from the impact of an affair and struggling to trust one another. I also work with couples who are not only disconnected emotionally but sexually and want to get that spark back and regain the passion in their relationship. Other couples I work with are coping with a spouse dealing with depression, PTSD, anxiety, or postpartum depression and looking for ways to support their spouse through a rough patch. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy with couples which is backed by research to be an effective method for improving the satisfaction and feeling of connection in a relationship. This model is grounded in attachment research which is at the core of relationships and my framework for therapy.
Another passion of mine is working with those impacted by adoption of foster care. As an independent contractor with MN Adopt I am eager to work with families touched by adoption whether at the beginning of the adoption journey in the thick of it, or with adult adoptees who are navigating relationships and identity concerns. I use an attachment approach with adoption and love to include parents in the process of therapy to foster a secure bond (relationship) between parent and child. I am familiar working with behavioral concerns in adoptees, grief and loss, adjusting to life transitions, discipline concerns, transracial adoption, open adoption, adoptees who have been through emotional, physical or sexual abuse or abandonment/neglect. I am also experienced working with depression, reactive attachment, separation anxiety, generalized anxiety, PTSD, and oppositional behaviors in adoptees.
Another area of interest for me is working with women and couples during the pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting years. I am experienced working with those facing infertility, miscarriage, stillbirth, infant loss (SIDs), ectopic pregnancy, traumatic birth experiences, postpartum depression and postpartum anxiety as well as parenting concerns. I love including dads in therapy as well, especially in this area of life!
I am open to seeing clients with all faith backgrounds but have specific experience providing counseling for Christian and Catholic clients who wish to include their faith in counseling.
