Healing for emotional, relational, and spiritual wounds
I'm a psychotherapist in Minneapolis. I love nature, art, travel, and wildlife. I study Chinese language and ancient Chinese philosophy. Before becoming a therapist, I was a touring musician and wrote software for organizations such as NASA and Mayo Clinic.
My approach to therapy combines my own life experiences with my broad training in counseling psychology's theories and applications.
Because of my commitment to easing suffering, I work with people regardless of gender, race, or political leanings. I believe everyone deserves access to therapy whether you live in an urban or rural area.
I bring a perspective of having grown up in an extremely challenging environment of male violence and poverty in rural Appalachia. Class dynamics and privilege in various forms are important cultural areas of concern for me.
As a speaker of Mandarin Chinese and a student of Chinese civilization, language, and culture, I specialize in helping Chinese students who are needing help dealing with the stress of adjusting to a new culture and the pressures of school.
