Work History
10/2021 to Current
Licensed Psychotherapist Fairview Health Services Woodbury, MN,

I am a licensed clinical social worker providing online psychotherapy for adults in a private practice setting. I have expertise working with clients with chronic illnesses/injuries. My approach is warm and respectful with the belief that therapy is both an art and a science. I use a combination of cognitive-behavioral and somatic therapies that incorporate, respect and nurture the mind/body connection using scientific evidence-based practices. I work collaboratively with clients in a safe, compassionate, and empowering way and am building my client base in both the North Lake Tahoe/Truckee regions and the East Bay of California. I have experience with a diverse population of people with depression, anxiety, grief & loss, life transitions, trauma, and relationship issues. I value a strengths-based perspective to build emotional harmony and overall quality of life. Both the Sierra and Bay Area are locations with great natural beauty, vibrance and creativity and when resourced positively within a therapy environment, can be a unique asset for client resiliency. I am welcoming new clients now.
