My passion is for helping families and individuals of all ages move toward healing and wholeness. Always fascinated by what makes us the way we are, I sought training in development and the problems that occur when life is hard. I received my doctorate in Child Clinical Psychology at the University of Minnesota. I have worked in various settings with children, adults, and families and served as a clinical supervisor in primary care mental health. I have also raised four children, so I have a lot of first-hand experience with the challenges families face. Outside of the office, I enjoy running, making ceramics, and hanging out with my dogs.
