Compassionate Help and Support for Kids and Families
Eagan and New Hope, MN based psychotherapy that builds on existing strengths to increase the possibility that children and families can live easier, better, more fulfilled lives.
Please note that I am not currently accepting new clients, but I do have a wait list for people who are looking to work with my supervisees (with whom I work very closely). I work with children 18 months to 18 years old, parents, and families.
I love working with transgender or gender expansive children and LGBTQ+ families, and I also enjoy supporting children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD), developmental delays or disabilities, histories of trauma (including medical trauma), and other emotional/behavioral challenges. I value caregivers as experts on their families. I partner with caregivers to make a plan that will benefit the whole family, using a strengths-based approach in which what already works is a foundation for further growth and development.
I also work individually with parents of all sorts. Parenting is a massive challenge, and it can bring up all sorts of things, from parents' past and present. Being able to work through those things can be powerfully healing for parents, allowing them to be their best selves for themselves and for their kids.
