About Me

I believe in the importance of warmth and humor in therapy and am humbled by the bravery of students sharing their stories with me. I approach therapy from a humanistic, feminist, and psychodynamic lens. This means that I respect clients' rights to set their own goals, pay attention to the impact of our intersecting identities, and place great importance on the relationship between therapist and client. Therapy can be a safe place to acknowledge, grieve, and heal from attachment wounds or trauma. I enjoy working with sexual exploration, development, and communication. Healing from disordered eating and body shame are passions of mine as well. I previously worked at The Emily Program, Metro State University, The Domestic Abuse Project, and UMN-Fairview Hospital. I am a queer-identified cisgender woman and enjoy serving students across all identities. Outside of work, you can find me walking my beloved dog, curling up with a book, tending to houseplants, or chatting with friends.
