Functional Family Therapist
“There are many ways.” I am a relational therapist and feel that all behavior and communication serves a function to get needs met. Our job is to work together to find healthier ways to reach those goals. I strive to create space in which this can happen. I use the connections I form with each client and their family to collaboratively shape my intervention and our therapeutic path.
Some of my specific interests include working with emotional regulation, gender, and the LGBTQ+ community.
I work out of our Bloomington location but serve all of the Hennepin County area.
I have been working as a mental health practitioner since 2014 including individual, couples, group, and family therapy. Prior to this I worked for 11 years as a youth advocate and mentor primarily serving families affected by domestic violence.
I completed my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2013. I also have an undergraduate degree in Women’s Studies.
