My Story

I spent 12 years in digital marketing and e-commerce as a small business owner before becoming a Mental Health Therapist. I decided to become a therapist after realizing that I was more interested in connecting with people and learning about their stories than attaining corporate profits. I have a Master’s degree in Counseling and Psychology, and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor with the state of Minnesota. I find it deeply rewarding to help others in finding their own path and feel greatly privileged that my clients allow me to join them on their journey.

Professional Experience

I enjoy working with couples and individuals addressing relationship difficulties such as infidelity/affairs, conflict and communication issues, life transitions, pre-marital counseling, relationship loss, divorce, and emotional disengagement. I also have experience working with adults facing issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, divorce/blended families, and grief.

I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), an empirically validated therapeutic approach to working with couples and relationships. The EFT approach helps reinforce attachment bonds and facilitate the creation of secure connections between partners leading to increased intimacy and fulfillment in their relationship.

I utilize Clinical Hypnosis (Hypnotherapy) to help clients feel relaxed and process trauma at a subconscious level. My training in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) has proven helpful in teaching Mindfulness, Emotion Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance skills.

I consider it an honor and privilege to help people grow and change in a way that is rewarding to them. My role is to create a safe space for growth, empowerment, and healing in your relationships and for yourself.

Testimonials:

Counseling for New Mothers

For new moms, it can be upsetting and frightening to have feelings about motherhood that don’t seem “right.” For some women, a morning run, a healthy diet and receiving help and support from family and friends are sufficient enough to get through the initial adjustment period. For others, talking to a therapist who specializes in dealing with new motherhood issues can be comforting, relieving and enlightening. Therapists who have extensive education and training in post-partum disorders understand that hormone changes, personal and family history, and social support are all vital factors in understanding and alleviating postpartum symptoms.

Police Officer and First Responder Wellness

“Support for first responder safety and wellness is vital to the field and community, as well as the well-being of their colleagues, agencies, and families.”

Therapy for Depression

Are you feeling hopeless, isolated and not your usual self?

"Mindfully Healing embraces a personal growth based model unlike a problem or deficiency based model of traditional mental health... Our clients experience this during their first session."

Why Private Pay is Beneficial for Some Clients?
  • Insurance does not cover relational difficulties such as couples and family therapy, they require a DSM-V diagnosis for one of the members. As a fee-for-service provider, I do not have to give you a mental health diagnosis.
  • Mental health diagnoses can follow you and be documented on health records and can result in affecting life insurance applications, health insurance applications and other benefits or services.
  • Together, we can determine how many times we meet instead of the insurance company making that decision.
  • Since a treatment plan, notes and billing information are not being released to an insurance company, a greater amount of confidentiality is in place for you.
