I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and co-founder of The Hoarding Project. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families. In my St. Paul, Minnesota private practice, I specialize in work with issues of trauma, grief and loss, specifically with ambiguous losses. I work with a variety of populations including refugees, families living with a dementia diagnosis, and hoarding disorder.
I earned my master’s degree in marriage and family therapy from Bethel Seminary in 2006, and will be completing a second master’s degree in family social science in May of 2013.
