Help Other Couples and Share this Profile:
I have over 20 years of clinical experience counseling couples and families focusing on adult and child mental health issues, as well as family challenges. In recent years, couple and marital therapy has made up over half of my total caseload. I am committed to relational as well as individual health and wholeness within the context of enduring, committed relationships.
I believe that my reputation would suggest that I am practical and skills-based in my initial marriage therapy strategies as I play an active role in helping couples stop the damage and begin to constructively solve conflicts and grow in compassion and understanding for one another. When the ground work is laid, therapy usually shifts to building intimacy including its emotional, social, familial, sexual and spiritual components which facilitate individual as well as relational healing.
In addition to my private practice, I am an adjunct faculty member at Bethel University where I supervise interns and teach students in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am also a former adjunct faculty member at St. Mary’s University and in the Family Social Science Department at the University of Minnesota where I completed my doctoral work in 1993.
