I am a mental health consultant available for same-day consultations. Your primary care, specialty care or mental health provider can refer you to me for resources, brief, solution-focused therapy and support. I offer face-to-face virtual visits for a variety of health services and conditions.
I provide whole person care to help children, adolescents and adults with life stress, and health and wellness.
Hometown: Inver Grove Heights, MN
Practice philosophy: I work from a bio-psycho-social framework using a strengths based approach and taking into consideration each individual's unique life experience. I believe in the innate healing ability of each of us, and recognize the importance of meeting people where they are. My mission is to use my education, experience, and knowledge to promote the health and wellbeing of the individuals and communities I serve.
Why I became a provider: I knew from a young age that I wanted to work in a helping profession and knew I had found my calling when I began studying Social Work in college. Social Work provided a holistic framework for addressing social injustices and promoting the health and healing of individuals, families, groups and communities.
Best part of my work: Learning something new everyday.
- Spending time with family
