My approach to therapy begins with developing a trusting non-judgmental relationship. I believe compassion and acceptance are key to healing, but many times we are our own worst critics. As a therapist, I work with people to develop compassion for themselves by exploring how family dynamics and culture have impacted so that they can understand why they are doing the things they are doing and to develop skills to get unstuck. I believe there is no one size fits all approach to therapy so I use a number of different modalities depending on the individual and their situation. Most importantly, people deserve to have a space where they can be heard, validated, and accepted. With time, trust, understanding, and compassion, people can learn new skills to live a more integrated and full life.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I completed my Master's in Social Work from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I have experience working with LGBTQ identified 18-25 year olds, older adult men, victims of sexual violence, and people with chronic health conditions. I am also certified in yoga-informed psychotherapy through Live Oak.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

If cost is a significant barrier -- if you have an out-of-network insurance plan or high deductible -- I can offer a sliding scale as low as $100 per session. In addition, Lotus Center has a supervised graduate intern with a rate of $35 per session.
