Self Awareness*Mindfulness

Philosophy and Approach: My approach is strength based and solution focused. I use emotionally focused therapy to help individuals and couples obtain their goals and have a successful therapeutic experience. The Substance Abuse Professional (SAP) is a person who evaluates employees who have violated a DOT drug and alcohol program regulation and makes recommendations concerning education, treatment, follow-up testing, and aftercare. I return drivers to work as quickly as public safety concerns will allow. Currently offering both in person and telehealth sessions for SAP evaluations. If you have your CDL or your CDL learner's permit, the very first thing you will want to do is register for the Clearinghouse. Their website address is I am a provider for the Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP). The purpose of HPSP is to provide a statewide confidential monitoring program for licensed healthcare professionals who have been diagnosed with a substance use disorder and/or mental health disorder. LMFT: I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and Level II trained Gottman Therapist. Using the Gottman Method techniques I help couples move away from what Gottman refers to as the four Horseman of the Apocalypse (Criticism, Contempt, Defensiveness and Stonewalling). The goals of Gottman Method Couples Therapy are to disarm conflicting verbal communication; increase intimacy, respect, and affection; remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy; and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding within the context of the relationship. Training and Education: I hold a Master's Degree from the Hazelden Graduate School of Addiction Studies and a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from St Mary’s University in Minneapolis. I have additional training and certification in counseling first responders.
