The goal of my psychotherapy practice is to create a safe place for clients to learn how to change patterns that no longer work for them. I see each of my clients as uniquely molded by past and present influences, and I endeavor to understand the impact these influences have on my clients' lives. I use an approach of curiosity and compassion to help my clients better understand themselves, and gain self-acceptance. I accept my clients for where they are at, and I commit to helping clients get to where (and who and what) they want to be.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to South St. Paul.

I'll help you explore what's getting in the way of living the life you want, and support you as you start experiencing more of what's important to you. You'll gain insight into your personal challenges and learn useful tools for managing yourself, your relationships and your problems. My philosophy is that our past experiences and the ways we've learned to deal with stress and relationships often leave us unprepared to cope with current issues. We tend to rely on old habits to solve problems and end up feeling frustrated or disappointed. With support, you'll discover your capacity to feel more comfortable with yourself and share that with others.

I am a relational therapist who works from a narrative perspective. That means that I preference the knowledge and experience of the people who chose to work with me. While I can offer tools, theories and techniques to make the changes you want in your life, our work together will always be centered around your personal values and preferences. I take great care to work at a pace that is right for you and on goals that you identify. I use warmth, humor and curiosity to create an impactful therapeutic experience.

Often people enter therapy feeling "stuck" in some area of their life - they have tried everything they can think of and still the feeling or situation persists. It shows great determination, resilience, and wisdom that you are reaching out to a professional at this point. Together we can work to understand how this situation came about, uncover what your real wants and needs are, and realistically consider what your options are for moving forward. If you are taking the initiative to look into therapy, then I am endlessly optimistic about your ability to make the changes you'd like to see.

In addition, how is what you are dealing with affecting the relationships you have? In discovering this, we can move forward with how to manage feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, or other mental health issues.

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55122 - Nearby to South St. Paul.

Psychotherapy is a very general term that refers to the process of a trained professional helping an individual, couple, or family sort through their feelings, thoughts, and relationships. I have been providing psychotherapy for over 10 years, using a very practical, problem-solving, strengths-based approach. Often this involves the use of hypnosis, but not necessarily. I like to identify up-front with my clients the goals they are looking to achieve, so that we can assess together over time how well we're doing at reaching them. We adjust the process along the way to help them get the maximum benefit out of their sessions with me.

I adopt a holistic approach to therapy. I view you as an integrated whole--a person with unique goals, hopes, and fears. I do not endorse a 'one size fits all' approach; thus, my services are tailored to your specific needs. I offer strength based and solution focused services. Thus, I emphasize your existing skills, help identify your areas of growth, and offer you specific strategies to promote your personal growth. Our work together challenges unhelpful thinking patterns and self-defeating behaviors, increases self-empowerment, promotes physical health and emotional well-being, and creates the space for your hopes to materialize.

“In my early professional years I was asking the question: How can I treat, or cure, or change this person? Now I would phrase the question in this way: How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for his own personal growth?” --Carl L. Rogers, founder of Person-Centered Therapy We often come to understand ourselves by talking out-loud, and both listening to ourselves and also being truly heard by another person. Therapy helps us feel listened to and understood, in a confidential and non-judgmental way. For therapy to work well, it helps if we are viewed with “unconditional positive regard” and accurate empathy. Once this happens, we can then begin to build new skills and new thoughts to help us become the person we hope to be.

Therapy with me is less about starting with behavioral change (which will emerge as you become ready for it) and more about self-discovery, healing deep wounds, and finding a path to living more authentically. I can be a guide, a witness, and a partner in your journey through the world. My training is in existential-phenomenological psychology, which is focused on body-mind integration, the importance of relationship, the stories you tell yourself, and building agency. It is similar to narrative and attachment work. Our work together will be driven by what you bring to sessions and your needs at any given point and is a freeform rather than structured one.

The craft of psychotherapy is part science and part artistry. I am informed by current research and also my extensive clinical experience (35 years) to build a solid therapeutic relationship with you. Once this occurs the trust will exist to allow us to create unique solutions your concerns. I take a cognitive behavioral approach, but find it helpful at times to explore your past as a way to help get "unstuck". I help clients to learn to better deal with emotions, to be assertive and to build self-confidence to feel better. I work with a wide variety of problems - see my web page for more details. My therapeutic style is engaging, warm, sometimes humorous and down to earth.

Research supports that people change through the therapeutic relationship. Regardless of techniques or training, the most important variable is the relationship between therapist and client. It is a place where, with a good therapist, clients can say whatever they want without being judged. There are few places in life where people can experience that. When we have started to talk about the problem, we are already starting to change.

There are many approaches to psychotherapy. As a PhD psychologist and marriage–family therapist for over 28 years my approach has been highly influenced by the executive coaching and consulting work I've done in the business world where there is a high demand for results. Many clients have given feedback that I'm much more active and involved compared to therapists they've seen in the past, and they appreciate this rather than just sitting back and listening without much comment. I have a very strong desire and commitment to help every client that I see make major changes in their life leading to greater fulfillment and happiness—this is what I strive for with every individual!
