While I’m a native Minnesotan, I have been practicing as a clinical social worker in mental health in Los Angeles, CA from 2006-2015. I have worked in a variety of settings and with diverse populations ranging from community mental health agencies, inpatient psychiatric hospitals, to correctional facilities and in private practice. My work tends to be rooted in a strengths-based, solution-focused, collaborative-partnership approach with others as we explore ideas together to help each person navigate their individualized path toward their goals. I love working with students on finding ways to find more balance and self-compassion in their lives by offering support and encouragement during times when life’s challenges seem overwhelming.
