I am a former trial court lawyer who became a school psychologist to help people transform their pain and conflict into resilience and learning. I received my doctorate in educational psychology (PhD) from the University of Minnesota, after studying at the Institute of Child Development, Washburn Center for Children, and Fraser Child and Family Center. I obtained my law degree from University of Wisconsin Law School and practiced complex commercial litigation at the Maslon Lawfirm in Minnesapolis. From these diverse experiences, I have expertise in treating trauma, working with school systems, conducting comprehensive evaluations (ages 2+), treating and evaluating cases in Family Court, and training parents, educators, lawyers, and mental health professionals.
I enjoy working with clients to understand their unique life experiences and customizes services to the lifestyle and goals of clients. I help people of all ages overcome negative irrational beliefs and hurtful experiences that prevent them from achieving their potential and having meaningful, satisfying relationships. Change is hard. We can do it together. I provide a free 15-minute phone consultation to help you decide if I may be a good fit for your situation.
