LPC

She/Her

I graduated from the forensic psychology program at the University of Denver and started my career at a local community mental health clinic in Minnesota prior to working at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. My career has centered on addressing the needs of marginalized communities (e.g. LGBTQIA+, people of color, individuals in the justice system, etc.). I have done extensive research and presentations in diversity, equity, inclusion, and intersectionality (the layers of our identities).

LGBTQIA+ Therapists for BIPOC Individuals | LGBTQIA+ Therapists for Couples | LGBTQIA+ Therapists for Exploring Sexuality | LGBTQIA+ Therapists for Individuals | LGBTQIA+ Therapists for Polyamory and Open Relationships

My approach to therapy is to meet my client where they are at along their lifelong journey towards contentment, success, and understanding their own intersectionality. Many of us bring different “selves” with us to each interaction in life, whether that be our gender, race/ethnicity, mental health diagnosis, or attachment style. My goal is to help individuals understand how all of these parts of ourselves interact and how we can best approach a life worth living while navigating daily obstacles and life’s transitions. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Motivational Interviewing techniques, and provide both person-centered and trauma-focused treatment. My counseling style is interactive, compassionate, and collaborative with an appropriate use of humor, when applicable. We will work alongside one another as a team throughout your treatment with you leading as the expert on your life, needs, and wants the entire way.
