Understand, Act, Transform

I'm a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and AASECT Certified Sex Therapist. I work with individuals and couples. Learn to resolve conflict, improve communication, enhance your sex life, and stay on track as you overcome challenges like anger, depression, stress 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 you move toward feeling more content. Depending on your particular challenges, this may mean we focus on building skills and strengths, exploring blocks, unpacking past/current influences, or a combination of these. I'll help you tap into your natural capacity for healing. A little about my background: 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 live in Arizona during part of the year. I'm married and have 3 grown children. I love to garden, bike, hike and spend time in nature. I look forward to talking with you. Office hours: Monday 1-6 / Tues & Weds 10 - 6 / Thursday 10 - 6 (last appointments start at 5 pm Monday thru Thursday)

“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.”
