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.

Grief & Bereavement Counseling

Bereavement and grief aren’t light-hearted topics. Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction for any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger and deep, deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social.

Counseling for Trauma

Most people will experience trauma in their lifetime whether it’s a car accident, abuse or neglect, the sudden death of a loved one, a violent criminal act, exposure to the violence of war, or a natural disaster. While many people can recover from trauma over time with the love and support of family and friends and bounce back with resiliency, others may discover effects of lasting trauma, which can cause a person to live with deep emotional pain, fear, confusion, or posttraumatic stress far after the event has passed. In these circumstances, the support, guidance and assistance of a therapist is fundamental to healing from trauma.

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.”

"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."
