I have been a contracted group facilitator for Gilda’s Club Twin Cities for nearly 2 years where I have facilitated support groups for people living with cancer, those caring for someone with cancer, and/or grieving someone with cancer. I also conduct individual and customized membership plans where I match someone with a specific support group and connect them to other resources within and outside of Gilda’s Club. The work I do at Gilda’s is some of the most meaningful work I have ever done.
I also have a private practice out of Edina MN, where I see adult individuals dealing with trauma, chronic pain or illness, and mood disorders. As a licensed Clinical Social Worker and a Registered Yoga Teacher, I provide a holistic approach to traditional talk therapy by integrating the body, mind, and spirit to enhance the healing process and treat the whole person. I incorporate complementary and integrative modalities such as yoga, meditation, breath work, guided imagery and EMDR to traditional practices of therapy.
