Outpatient Mental Health Professional
I work with life adjustment stress, depression and anxiety regularly. I enjoy working with; people managing mental health concerns along with developmental disabilities, people working to maintain Schizophrenia spectrum symptoms, people that have GLBTQIA elements that need to be respected when addressing mental health, and people managing symptoms of trauma in their history.
I approach each client with their goal in mind. We co-create the plans and symptoms to address. I use CBT and Adlerian foundations with a person centered focus. There are elements of Behavior Analysis to help keep track of the progress, and the understanding that symptoms don't improve at a steady rate. Sometimes there are steps backward, and from those we learn and improve the skills you take with you.
I grew up in the twin cities and surrounding suburbs and love living here. I'm a fan of public park programs year round; movies, cultural shows, music, snow kites and the winter loppet. I spend time with family and friends often outside. I do enjoy games and scifi/fantasy media.
