My work as a therapist is grounded in the honor and privilege it is to help others find healing and strength as they share their experiences with me. I have a strong desire and passion for supporting healthy caregiver/child relationships. I am trained in Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), which is an evidenced-based model to support caregivers and their young children (0-6 years old) process their feelings related to traumatic events they experienced. I specialize in working with the birth to age 5 population, and I am an Endorsed Infant Mental Health Specialist (IMH-E®-III) through Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health – Infant and Early Childhood Division.
I received my Master of Arts degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University and I am a Minnesota Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I am a Regional Program Supervisor in our St. Cloud location, and oversee the Early Childhood Mental Health (0-6 year olds) programming. I have been employed with The Village since 2009.
