Emotional Well-Being


Individual counseling services: I love working with people who are interested in learning and growing but may be stuck in a particular area of life. My approach to therapy is holistic and designed to help you live in a way that is authentic, healthy, and congruent with your personal strengths, values, and/or faith. Whether you are struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, or other emotional challenges I will help you know and accept yourself on a deeper level and find solutions that are right for you.

My years of experience in behavioral health and in coaching people to know themselves well has led me to believe that nothing is more important than living an authentic life. Unresolved personal and family issues and being out of sync with who you are leads to all sorts of symptoms and problems. In addition, many things happen in life that are beyond your control, such as the biology you inherit and various traumas you may experience. The purpose of counseling or therapy is to help you understand your particular challenges and find ways to improve your ability to function well and experience emotional health.

I have narrowed my areas of interest and expertise to the following list:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Other mood disorders such as bi-polar or adjustment disorders
  • Stress
  • Grief and loss
  • Integrating your faith or Christianity into how you live your life
  • Personal growth
  • I work with adults of all ages and older adolescents

If you are interested in counseling or therapy services, these typically happen face to face in my office in Arden Hills, MN. I am a provider for most of the major insurance plans and EAP organizations. Some people prefer to pay out of pocket for various reasons and my fees are typically in line with my normal reimbursement from insurance plans.
