I am currently a Master’s Intern from St. Cloud State University’s Marriage and Family Therapy program. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Community Psychology from St. Cloud State University. Prior to working with Lighthouse Counseling, I interned at a day treatment center where I worked with adolescents, helping to teach coping skills related to cognitive behavior, emotional regulation and anxiety management.
I am influenced by Systems and Biopsychosocial Theories and believe in utilizing an integrative approach to therapy, combining different therapeutic approaches to meet the unique needs of each individual/family. I recognize the courage it takes to enter into therapy and I am committed to fostering a comfortable environment where your unique goals can be achieved.
I am certified as a PREPARE/ENRICH facilitator, which helps couples enrich their marriage or prepare for marriage during their engagement. My interests include working with children and adolescents, ages 0-18, couples and families, individuals suffering from self-injurious behaviors, and helping individuals/families manage and balance technology use in their daily lives.
