Understand, Act, Transform

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I work with couples and individuals. Learn to resolve conflict, improve communication, enhance your sex life, and stay on track as you overcome challenges like anger, depression and anxiety. Look forward to feeling revitalized and reconnecting with the best parts of yourself. Life is short. Live with meaning and purpose. My style as a therapist is active and warm. I work to create trust and understanding, as well as movement toward your goals. I grew up on the East Coast, lived in Portland and Seattle for a few years, and have lived in Minnesota since the 90s. I'm married and have 3 grown children. I love to garden, bike, hike and spend time in nature. Office hours: Monday 1-6 / Tues & Weds 10 - 7 / Thursday 10 - 6

“Thank you so much for your amazing work - we both left our session today feeling like we partially broke through a massive barrier. I know we still have work to do, but we actually found a bit of peace tonight thanks to your strong skills as a therapist.”

Existing Client

“I've had some bad experiences with therapists over the years. They labelled me and I felt weird. I don't think they understood my problems or how to help me. You've been different. You aren't afraid to think outside the box. I feel calmer than ever.”
