I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Minnesota and Wisconsin. I have worked in the counseling field for over 30 years. I have an additional Masters Degree in Theology and a Pastoral Ministry Certificate. I have a national certification as a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor. I am trained in A-R-T/ Accelerated Resolution Therapy.
I am experienced in working with depression, anxiety, relationship and parenting issues, job and workplace issues, emotional abuse, chronic illness and life stage changes. My counseling style is caring and interactive. I am client centered and solution focused. I take a holistic approach of Mind-Body-Spirit.
I offer Christian Counseling. I believe in treating each person with respect, kindness, and work with many different faiths or types of spirituality. I have provided 20 years of marriage preparation and enrichment retreats to over 5000 couples. I specialized in Remarriage and blending of families. I enjoy learning from each client and humbled by each persons sacred story. I was raised Baptist, became a Catholic when I married and all my Lutheran friends say that I am a Lutheran! I am now divorced. With God 's Grace I move forward on my daily walk. I have HOPE and in each session we can seek God or not. It is your relationship with God and that is respected.
