I hold a masters degree in social work from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. from Grinnell College. I teach junior and senior field seminars, working with students to link social work theory and practice. I serve as Social Work Supervisor at the William Mitchell Child Protection Clinic. I also maintain a private practice where I use an eclectic approach to individual, couples, and group therapy, incorporating cognitive, creative and holistic techniques to assist clients in sustaining authentic identities, coping with difficulties and overcoming trauma.
