Our experiences shape us to be the complex people we are. I see myself as a person making meaning out of my world and experiences, informed by values of radical kindness, justice, and equity. My work centers around peace-seeking and I strive to offer an authentic, friendly, and casual space where people are free to be and explore their whole selves. I welcome my clients to express all parts of themselves, good, bad, frustrating, and beautiful. My goal is to always honor my clients’ thoughts, dreams, and experiences.
Anti-racism, anti-imperialism, and anti-capitalism lie at the center of my values in therapy and ceaselessly inform my practice. Cultural humility drives my understanding of those around me. Before working towards my MA in Marriage and Family Therapy from St. Mary’s University of Minnesota, I worked in several nonprofit organizations centered on justice and equity and received my BA degrees in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and American Culture and Difference Studies from the University of St. Thomas.
I am not fully licensed and am currently practicing under my supervisor, Mark Reese, MA LMFT at Edges Wellness Center as a practicum student. My direct approach with clients combines Existentialism, Critical Theory, Feminist Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Narrative Therapy, and Experiential Therapy to guide our sessions in a way that suits them best. I have a deep interest and personal connection in working with LGBTQ+ folks, non-normative relational styles (e.g., kinky, non-monogamous, multiamorous), and people exploring their authentic selves. Commitment to understanding and healing ourselves is a deeply personal expedition and I’m honored to partner with my clients along the way.
