I really love what I do.  Life can so easily feel out of control and overwhelming and it is my belief that we all need a little help at some point in our lives.  I am happy to help you find and maintain the joy, peace, and meaning that sometimes gets lost in our busy and chaotic lives.

I have been working in public health and social work for the past 15 years, and am a licensed independent clinical social worker.  I moved to Minnesota from Columbus, Ohio in 2002, and then moved to Northfield with my family in 2004, where I opened a private practice.  When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, hiking, and traveling.  Below you will find more information on my work history:
