My Approach to Helping

I am the owner of a mental health private practice called Cornerstone Therapy and Recovery Center in St. Paul, Minnesota. We believe that the best way to help people is by creating a safe and caring relationship. These are the foundations of any healthy and successful therapeutic experience. We try to understand a person's internal world and experience of reality and then tailor the therapeutic approach to who they are and what they need. We try hard to communicate and demonstrate to people that we actually care and that we're not just "being nice" because they're paying us to be nice. We actually do care and that is what makes the work we do worthwhile to us and the people we help.

More Info About My Practice

There are 9 therapists at Cornerstone. We all have various specialty areas as listed below. We accept most insurances and have a sliding fee scale for those who do not have insurance. There are 4 female therapists and 5 male therapists. We encourage you to visit our website at cornerstonetherapyandrecovery.com

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

We all have 10 to 40 years of experience providing psychotherapy and have all been trained in a number of therapeutic approaches. We have experience working with a variety of issues and problems. Our primary specialties at present are men's issues, sex addiction, infidelity, childhood trauma and neglect, family of origin dysfunction, codependency, anger management, women's issues, psychosexual and psychological evaluations, teens with sexual behavior issues, college students, and relationship issues. We have a comprehensive outpatient outpatient treatment program for men who have compulsive sexual behaviors. We also provide therapy and support to spouses and partners of men with sex addiction issues.

How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist

If I was in charge of training potential psychotherapists, I would have them all do at least a couple of years of therapy themselves. Therapists are only human. They have life struggles just like everyone else. My own life struggles and my experiences in getting therapeutic help and working them through is one of my most valuable assets I have in helping people. I've been in the chair of my clients and I know what has been most valuable for me. I have worked on my own personal healing and growth for 40 years and have a lot to offer others as a result. I approach therapy as a helping trained professional and as a person. This is what has been the most helpful for me when I've needed help. Of course I do have extensive training as a professional and use these tools with my clients but I like to think of myself as a Certified Human Being first and a Licensed Psychologist second.
