Clinic-Based Therapy Services

I believe that we are all inherently worthy and deserving of having spaces in our life where we can feel seen, heard, and understood, allowing us to connect with the most authentic version of self. As a therapist, I strive to create this dynamic in my therapy room. My style is supportive and nurturing, yet direct when necessary. I am a trauma and attachment based therapist. This means when I sit with folks, I am thinking about all the experiences that have happened thus far and shaped who they are and how they view the world, honoring each part of themselves and their story while also moving towards growth that is authentic to who they want to be. I take a strengths-based approach to emphasize the wisdom they already have on their journey through transformation and healing. I currently hold a Master of Social Work and am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker through the Minnesota Board of Social Work.

I see therapy as a collaborative effort, tailoring my therapeutic approach to the unique needs of each of my clients as they work to reprogram limiting beliefs, and create a life that is in alignment with their values. Many of the interventions I utilize in my practice are strengths-based and person-focused, this often includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Systems Therapy, mindfulness and Somatic-based approaches. I have experience treating anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, attachment issues, grief and loss. I enjoy working with adolescents, individuals, couples and family systems.

I would be honored to begin working with you as you navigate your healing journey and connect with your most authentic self.

Telehealth Services

To expand and improve our care options for clients, ACP offers Telehealth (phone or video) appointments. Telehealth uses phone or video conferencing to connect you with highly qualified and experienced providers in real-time from the comfort and convenience of your own home or office. Before your telehealth appointment, you will receive details for how you will connect with your provider. If you will be connecting via phone, the provider will plan to call you at your scheduled appointment time. Please be ready to take the call and also check that your phone allows calls from blocked numbers (accessible within your phone settings). If you will be connecting via video conference, your provider will email you an invite to join the appointment. Please call our office to learn more about ACP’s telehealth services and to schedule an appointment.
