Practice statement:
My practice is geared toward children and adults overcoming impact of trauma and regaining their ability to lead joyful, meaningful and successful lives.  I have extensive training and experience in working with children and teens, who have experienced physical, sexual and emotional abuse, as well as children who may be experiencing less severe symptoms of poor school performance, motivation problems, anxiety and depression or oppositional behavior.  In addition to traditional talk therapy, I use trauma-informed art and play therapy approaches, which are often more accessible to younger children and are often the more age-appropriate interventions, according to research.   I have experience in helping families dealing with separation, adoption, foster placement and child protection issues.  I also work with adults, couples and families dealing with relational struggles, anxiety, depression, anger problems and other struggles.

In my years of practice I learned that human beings are unique and each person requires their own individual path toward overcoming obstacles.  For that reason, therapy could be the most personal experience in people's lives and no one approach or preexisting formula is right for everyone, child or adult.

Practice Statement

I BELIEVE: 1) It is in the context of relationship that we make the deepest change. 2) We grow and excel in an environment with just the right amount of support & challenge. 3) We must feel understood-by ourselves, yes, and often by another--before we can make change. 4) Engaging in our passions make us come alive. These four core beliefs guide my work as a psychologist, life coach, author, radio host, and performer. Working collaboratively and fostering safe spaces, together we can increase awareness and create experiences that allow our best selves to emerge.

First, I listen deeply and whole heartedly. I then shuttle between what I hear you saying is happening now and how you want your life to be different. As you try new behaviors, I help with 1) Increasing helpful thoughts and behaviors--and reducing unhelpful ones, and 2) Celebrating successes.

While I offer collaborative, integrative individual and couple psychotherapy, one of my favorite parts of my workweek is Tuesday night Group Psychotherapy for Men and Women.

Clients have said that they feel very comfortable and accepted when they work with me, and find that they benefit by the insight they gain and skills they learn. I am trained in EMDR and Compassion Focused Therapy which support each other in helping you resolve past issues and embrace more positive self-concepts. Both involve "brain training" to help you understand why you are reacting the negative way you are, and change it for the better.

Practice Statement: My practice focuses on the intersection of trauma with chronic pain. We know that chronic stress from untreated trauma often shows up as pain in the body. When we address the trauma, the
pain often resolves. Sometimes the trauma is the direct cause of the pain, as in the case of car accidents, and sometimes it is indirect, as in cases of non-specific tension throughout the body that often presents as a result of unresolved traumatic experiences.  Additionally, as a mom of three autistic kids, I am especially sensitive to the ways in which living in a world not set up for autistic individuals can set the stage for traumatic experiences, and
I often work with autistic adults who have experienced trauma.  I also frequently work with people with dissociative disorders, since often dissociation plays a role in chronic pain. I use clinical hypnosis, including ego state interventions, to assist in determining the function of dissociation and what is required to reduce the need
for dissociation.

I believe we are all doing the best we can, and that we need help to do better, especially when our stories have been placed with attachment wounds, abuse, our tragic incidents that impact our functioning. Although trauma work takes time, I have witnessed the joy and relief that comes through investing in ones self by engaging in therapy. I allow space for clients to set a pace that works for them while guiding them toward our established goals. We will potentially laugh, cry, share, and grow as therapy is built on a real relationship between real people. I look forward to hearing from you!

Practice Statement: In my practice, for specific trauma's, EMDR Therapy has proven itself to be highly effective and also a very efficient way of resolving the blockage that trauma often creates. This allows clients to go thru their daily lives without the debilitating, unwelcome, intrusive feelings and reminders that keep them from enjoying their day-to-day routines. Other long-term traumatizing circumstances frequently require a different approach - combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Attachment-focused therapy, and (if needed) EMDR Therapy as well. Since I see each person as unique, I work with each client to evaluate their particular circumstances and then focus therapy as needed to meet those needs.

Populations: Adolescents, Adults, Veterans, Law Enforcement, Couples, Sex Offenders, DID (I have extensive experience working with BPD and Narcissistic Personality Disorder with DID playing a prominent role.  I find that they tend to be long-term clients that require patience in the extreme, coupled with the ability to absorb extremely inappropriate behaviors.  I am willing to journey with the client to resolve those behaviors.  My approach to working with DID is to allow the client to give me a complete picture of their experience with DID because each one is individual. As we work together I ask for specific examples of how each client experiences DID and together we creatively produce a process to reintegrate the client with themselves. Some DID issues are spiritual in nature and some are physical in nature.  It is important to identify the source for effective treatment.)  I also plan on continuing education in the area of DID in 2017.

Modalities: Main Modality is that you are the expert on your trauma. Other modalities include: CBT, Structural, Emotional Focused, Gestalt, Family Systems, Trauma and attachment: Effective treatment Interventions

Practice Statement: No one begins life to be traumatized. It just happens.  When it happens and we get stuck in the trauma, that is where a third party comes in.  I have extensive experience, both personally and professionally, with trauma. My approach is to create a safe place where you can process through the trauma at your own pace.  My therapeutic assumption is that you want to get out of the trauma even more than I want you to get out of the trauma.  My promise to you is that I will gently walk through the process for as long as you need me to.

Practice Statement:

Children are constantly communicating with the people around them. When children are having difficulties or challenges, the first step is always to learn to listen more deeply to the child and then to move forward from there. The right support for children and families can bolster resilience and allow them to thrive no matter what challenge they face. I use a strengths-based approach to use what already works well for a child or within a family system as a foundation for further growth and development.

I work primarily from attachment/attunement, child-centered, sensorimotor, narrative, and solution-focused theoretical perspectives. From those foundations, relationships take center stage. A main goal for the therapy I offer is to enhance and deepen family relationships while increasing positive interactions, enjoyment, and well-being.

Psychopharmacology: n/a 
Practice Statement: I have been working in private practice for over 18 years and am broadly and deeply trained in both psychotherapy and holistic/integrative wellness. I specialize in customizing the methods of psychological, emotional, and psychospiritual healing to the client, co-creating both the therapeutic environment and the work to fit individual needs. In addition, I am available to consult with physicians to support the client’s physical health and wellbeing through integrative practices. 

 

Couples work often involves the exploration and untangling of childhood attachment injuries and traumas that adversely affect bonded adult relationships. I specialize in helping couples establish/re-establish intimate bonds of safety and attachment to one another. For couples “on the brink” of separation or divorce, I offer Discernment Counseling - a limited-session targeted approach to assist in determining the best course of action to move forward and get relationally un-stuck. 


Weekly Therapy Groups are offered yearly between September and May, and are designed to help participants practice symptom management, mindfulness, authenticity, self-compassion, and relational support. The group is mixed gender and the ages typically range from 20s-70s. Some clients return yearly and others get what they need over the course of one cycle. This popular group is closed, meaning that once the group begins for the year, no one else is added.

Practice Statement:

Therapy provides a safe space to work together in exploring solutions to challenging thoughts, feelings, and situations. Interventions are tailored to individual situations and client needs. This can include use of EMDR for trauma processing and challenging negative cognitions, CBT with a psychodynamic and humanistic approach, and play therapy with children. Individuals and families experience moments of distress that impacts everyone in the home. Repairing relationships requires developing communication skills and openness to change. This includes anxiety, depression, behavioral concerns, attachment, school transitions, complex issues (ex: trauma, grief/loss, parenting changes) & substance use. As a Registered Play Therapist, I approach child distress as a response to changes in family structure, nurturing and consistency in caregiver relationships, and coordination between parents, social resources, and schools. My play therapy room adds an extra space for a child's healing and growth to occur.

Consultation for Therapists on Trauma: Yes, I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant. I work with individuals and groups working towards EMDR certification. 
Psychopharmacology: None
Practice Statement:   I work with adults and teens who are experiencing chronic or acute PTSD, anxiety, depression and related disorders. As an EMDRIA Certified Clinician and an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, I have found that Eye Movement Reprocessing and Desensitization (EMDR) is one of the best methods to stimulate the brain’s natural ability to move toward health. I also incorporate Narrative therapy and Internal Family Systems into the work. I have specialized training in racialized trauma, early trauma protocol, attachment-based EMDR, and complex dissociation.

I use a collaborative approach and an empowerment model to increase your choices and control which will allow us to create the conditions necessary to access your brain’s adaptive information processing (AIP) system using EMDR. This system will support and guide the process that heals your traumatic injuries and promotes new possibilities for your life.

I explicitly acknowledge that white supremacy impacts every single aspect of our lives as citizens in the United States, including every single aspect of the mental health system. I strive to understand my own conditioning within this system and intentionally engage in an anti-racism practice model.

attachment work, DBT with lots of work around being able to handle
emotions and Prolonged Exposure. In my experience folks need to learn
how to experience emotions without avoidance, challenge myths, process

trauma emotionally and do some exposure. I do not treat people as fragile
as I believe that is a disservice to clients as well as participating in their
avoidance. I have been in practice for 20 years and mainly treat PTSD,
OCD, CPTSD/BPD, Anxiety Disorders, Phobias, Depression, ADHD,

If you feel anxious, depressed, sad, or unsafe, or if you feel you're not good enough, or unworthy, not smart enough, if you have feelings of anger/rage, shame or guilt, etc., chances are you have experienced some degree of trauma in your life. Alcohol, drugs, over-eating, work-a-holism, shopping to excess, etc. are some of the ways can we use to suppress and/or over-ride these uncomfortable beliefs and feelings we carry from past trauma. One does not need to continue living and suffering in this way - healing and happiness are available to you.

With effort and a little time you can heal. The path to healing is simple, but requires effort on your part. I'm skilled at this work and have years of experience. I have guided many clients on their path to freedom and happiness, and I'd be happy to work with you.

Consultation for Therapists on Trauma: Yes
Psychopharmacology: no
Practice Statement: I have extensive experience working with survivors of both single incident and complex trauma throughout my career. I seek to create an environment where clients‘ strengths and the strengths of their communities and cultures are honored and built upon as they learn to navigate their external and internal world with greater freedom. I honors that many survivors of trauma have found little benefit from psychotherapy or have even found it harmful. My approach to trauma work is client-driven, only discussing trauma details if and when the client believes it is in their best interest. I firmly believe that significant healing from the impact of trauma can occur before discussing the details of the traumatic incident itself. 

 

I currently provide therapy for clients ages 14 and up. Services are offered via telehealth throughout Minnesota. I also offer Trauma and Tension Release Exercises (TRE) as a stand alone service outside of therapy if you are already engaged with another therapist or have engaged in significant trauma therapy in the past and are looking for additional tools to aid your healing journey.
