More on This Provider
I have lived in the mid-west all my life, residing in and around the Mankato area for over 20 years. I have four beautiful adult children scattered throughout the state. I love visiting and spending time with them, and am looking forward to exploring hobbies and interests I haven’t had time for in the past, including yoga, swimming, dancing, painting, drawing, reading and traveling.
In 1993, I received my Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point, majoring in psychology with a human services emphasis.
In 2000, I received my Master of Science degree in Women’s Studies from Minnesota State University, Mankato. My thesis was titled “Art Education as a Social Change Agent: Implications for Feminist and Native American Educators.”
I went back to school in the Spring of 2019 and, in the Spring of 2021, I will be graduating with a Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University, Minneapolis. This degree, along with my work with Eunoia Family Resource Center, continues to help move me toward obtaining my licensure as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).
Over the past 20 years, I have held a variety of counseling positions that have afforded me a wonderful array of experiences working with middle-school aged children, at-risk youth and adults in individual, group and family settings. I have worked with complex issues including domestic violence; parenting struggles; grief and loss; trauma experiences in childhood or related to sexual or violent partner incidents; fears and consequences related to coming out; self-worth; anxiety; and depression. These experiences have largely been working with clients in their homes, where individual strengths; communication, coping, and resiliency skill-building; and creative expression are highlighted and emphasized.
Therapeutic Philosophy and Interests
Being back in school, I love exploring theoretical approaches that I find interesting. I consider each individual and family as unique and tend to tailor my methods accordingly. I primarily lean on narrative, multigenerational, communication, contextual, structural, and eco-wellness models, but continually evolve as I learn more. I am passionate about the environment and our place within it and social justice issues, so I utilize a client-centered, strengths-based wellness (mind-body-nature) lens that guides my work with those who entrust me with their worries, concerns or issues.
I have several areas of interest including learning more about play therapy and working with young children; children and teens dealing with trauma such as serious illness/long-term hospitalization; at-risk teens or youth who’ve become homeless as a result of coming out; learning to become more effective in serving the LGBTQIA+ population; issues impacting veterans; exploring ways to effectively reach populations that struggle with social anxiety; and families and individuals dealing with end-of-life issues.
