My approach to individual therapy is integrative in that it involves a combination of experiential, existential, and cognitive-behavioral techniques.
I have also been trained in EMDR and have a background in treating trauma (from the time I spent in the Veterans Administration’s (VA) hospital substance abuse treatment program in St. Cloud, MN, the VA Hospital medical psychology program in Minneapolis, MN, the intensive care and burn units at Ramsey Hospital in St. Paul, MN, and the VA Hospital in Bay Pines, Florida (specializing in health psychology and PTSD/trauma treatments).
After assessing your unique needs, listening deeply to your concerns, and learning about your story, we will collaboratively create a treatment plan that utilizes your strengths, acknowledges the mind-body connection, and takes advantage of my expertise and knowledge of evidence-based theories. I believe following these steps can help guide our work together and let us know that we are on the right track.

According to researchers, teletherapy or video therapy is just as effective as in-person therapy. Researchers have also found that video therapy can reach more veterans with PTSD than in-person therapy.
Teletherapy can include a variety of virtual options for meeting with a therapist. At this time, I am only conducting video therapy sessions. This is hosted through a secure client portal via an appointment link that is unique to each session. My goal is to ensure that our teletherapy sessions are as safe as possible. I do this by upholding HIPAA standards, and by using secure, confidential, and encrypted software to protect your vital health information.
Note: To partake in teletherapy, you will need access to the internet, a computer that is equipped with a camera and microphone, and a quiet “safe space” where you can talk freely without disruptions.
