I have been in private practice as a licensed counselor in the Twin Cities since 2009.  Prior to this I was an executive coach for C-Level Executives, and provided human relations training and education as a consultant for numerous organizations.  I taught counseling skills and other courses at the graduate school level as an adjunct faculty at the University of St. Thomas.

In my final year of master's level training I interned at the Hamm Memorial Psychiatric Clinic in St. Paul. In this setting I provided individual therapy and group therapy to adult populations.
