Emotional suffering hurts. There are times when everything we know how to do isn't enough. I'd like to help. I provide psychotherapy to couples, individuals and families through my private practice in Burnsville, MN. While I consider family and marital relationships to be my specialty, I serve clients with a wide ranging set of concerns including anxiety, depression, personality and character issues, premarital counseling, grief and transition, chronic illness and life adjustment problems.

My clients tell me that I have a calm presence that helps them concentrate on themselves and their ideas for change, while my focus on their family system helps them better understand their behavior, choices and emotions. If you become my client, I won't rush to judgement, solutions or advice. Instead, I make it my goal to get to know you and your experience, taking time to empathize and understand you before I imagine and suggest changes to your thinking or behavior. With professional degrees in theology as well as psychotherapy, I have a passion for helping my clients access their own spiritual resources to assist their recovery and healing.
