About Me

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker specializing in adult psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic psychotherapy. I maintain a private practice in the central Twin Cities Metro at University Avenue and Highway 280.

I bring to my practice completion of training as a psychoanalyst, advanced training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and several years training and working with adults in a psychoanalytically oriented mental health clinic. I also have a personal history as a private practice lawyer and corporate legal executive. This experience informs my work with clients facing difficult professional challenges or seeking support for navigating highly demanding or stressful work environments.
