I’m a licensed psychotherapist accepting patients in California and Minnesota. I’m also a supervisor for Minnesota state licensure.
The aim of my practice is to collaborate with clients and guide them towards a path of lifelong health and satisfaction. Together we’ll work through your issues and find strategies for coping with the demands of life while simultaneously uncovering any problematic patterns or behaviors.
I grew up in the Midwest and since have lived in many different cities and countries. I believe that my strong upbringing and exposure to the world makes me a better therapist. I attended Loyola University of Chicago and studied English Literature, receiving my B.A. in 1989. I then attended Boston University, receiving a M.Ed. in Counseling in 1993. I am constantly consulting, studying and immersed in psychology and bring this passion into my work with people. I have extensive training in psychoanalysis and all of my work is informed by this lens. The primary aim of psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy is to help you come to know aspects of your mind that were previously unknown, so you can become a better, more whole version of yourself and live your life more fully and freely.
