Working with teenagers and adults experiencing anxiety, panic, worry, or obsessions & compulsions is my specialty.
When working together, the first step is for you to begin telling me about yourself so I can better understand how you’re feeling and what’s occurring in your life. Many of my clients find having someone to talk to enormously helpful.
Sometimes having someone to talk to isn’t enough. In this case, our next step is to start cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a scientifically proven psychotherapy, tailored to your unique situation. CBT explores the way your emotions, thoughts, and behaviors interact. By identifying unhelpful ways of thinking and behaving, CBT can quickly help you feel less anxious.
For many people, problematic anxiety, worry, and/or panic won’t go away on its own. I encourage you to schedule a free phone consultation, which will allow me to assess your situation and provide recommendations.
Ensuring those I work with are getting the best care is important to me, so I continually update my knowledge with the best available research. One way I do this is through my affiliate memberships in numerous professional bodies including the American Psychological Association, the Minnesota Psychological Association, the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, the Association for the Advancement of Philosophy and Psychiatry, the International OCD Foundation, the Society for Humanistic Psychology, and the Society for Theoretical and Philosophical Psychology.
I've provided psychological assessment and treatment services since September, 2014 and have been employed at Maplewood Psychology since July, 2016. During my clinical training, I worked and received supervision at the following sites: University of Minnesota Student Counseling Services, Brakins Consulting and Psychological Services, Watercourse Counseling, and Argosy Student Counseling Services.
Currently, I'm enrolled in the clinical psychology doctoral program at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology, one of few clinical psychology programs in Minnesota accredited by the American Psychological Association.
My clinical work is supervised by Dr. Jean Eich, PsyD, LP.
