It is my firm belief that you are doing the best you can to navigate life and all the challenges it brings. How you do so has been shaped over time, beginning with your earliest experiences in infancy and childhood and then, continued to evolve across your lifespan. Working collaboratively, we will explore how your past has impacted your present. Then, we will uncover how you can move forward in new ways that will increase your happiness and well-being. 

This road to self-understanding and self-awareness can be a challenging one, but don’t worry, together, we got this.

I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Winona State University, followed by a Master’s Degree in Child Development from Erikson Institute in Chicago, IL. Currently, I am wrapping up a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy at Adler Graduate School. This means I am a therapist in training and am currently an intern here at Emerge.

I have spent many years providing therapeutic services to children on the autism spectrum, and their families, using the DIR/Floortime model—a relational developmental approach to supporting children and their families. Recently, I have begun working with adults on the spectrum and their family members.

I enjoy providing therapy for children and families, individuals and couples. I currently have some sliding scale spots available for those who need more flexibility.
