Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MN)
Lifeforming Growth Coach
Certified PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitator & Trainer
Certified Harrison Assessments Provider
We all are on a unique path in our life journey. My experiences have given me a passion to counsel, coach, and consult others to support them as they navigate through the complexities of life, and as they adjust from one season of life to another, both personally and professionally. My hope is to help others embrace their authentic experience.
As a Counselor and Coach, I specialize in premarital, marital, remarriage, and stepfamily dynamics. I have a doctorate degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and am licensed as a Marriage & Family Therapist in Minnesota. I am also trained as a Lifeforming Growth Coach. I have worked with couples for over 20 years in marriage ministry, both on church staff and as a volunteer.
As a Consultant, I have worked with organizations around customer service, collections, real estate, and higher education initiatives. Additionally, I have had extensive coaching and training in real estate sales and marketing. I earned a master’s degree in Organizational Leadership from Bethel University, which lends to my ability to consult systemically on special organizational projects. I am driven to help others on their professional journeys of growth and development.
I offer a unique perspective blending a systemic lens, marriage and family therapy training, along with business, teaching, and ministry experience to counsel, coach, and consult. I am trained in DBT (Dialetical Behavior Therapy) and EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization Therapy).
I find assessments to be helpful tools that provide insights and new levels of awareness. I use the PREPARE/ENRICH Assessment in my work with couples, and Harrison Assessments for those seeking answers about next steps on their career path. I also integrate StrengthFinders into my work. My top five Strengths are: Positivity, Learner, Activator, Responsibility, and Includer. For those who are familiar with StengthFinders, these are a true reflection of how I am wired and how I work and engage with others.
My hope is that people may be encouraged in their journeys to make healthy and wise choices with their personal and professional relationships and goals as they discover and embrace their unique path. I look forward to connecting with you to determine how I may be able to walk along side of you as you navigate the current season of your life. I invite you to contact me to explore how I may best support you on your journey.
