About Me

Specialty Areas

In addition to working with people on a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns, I specialize in:

  1. Entrepreneurs (I've been an entrepreneur since 2010)
  2. Creative professionals.
  3. Gifted & highly sensitive people of all ages.

However, while these people groups are of special interest to me, you do not need to fall within these categories to work with me.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and executive coach based in Minneapolis, MN, and I see clients across North America.

My Style

We all have strengths, and most of us have things we don't like about ourselves. I work with the whole person to help them reconnect with their strengths and understand the nuances of what's bothering them.

As someone who has been on my own therapeutic journey and had a robust career before becoming a coach and therapist, I understand that self-care and change can be complex and scary. But it can also be life-changing.

My style blends candor with warmth, insight with empathy, existentialism with practicality, and humor with compassion. I appreciate it when people are candid, kind, and genuine with me, and that's how I treat my clients. 

My practice affirms non-binary and LGBTQ+ people, gender equality, proactively dismantling sexism, and the profound impacts of intergenerational racial trauma.

Education & Licensure

I have a masters in psychotherapy and counseling from St. Mary's University of Minnesota and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) within the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health. My supervisor is the wonderful Dr. Mary Wandrei, Ph.D., LP.

My Approach


We all have strengths, and therapy too often only focuses on problems. I help you identify and leverage your strengths to bring lasting change into your daily life.


This focuses on the physical experience and helps those of us who are stuck in our heads get out of our heads. Very helpful For people who often try to outthink their problems.

Internal Family Systems

Think "Inside Out" the movie. I use the concept of us having parts-that-make-a-whole to rework old patterns and learn to better integrate your full experience.

Narrative Therapy

This is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) with a creative overlay. It's considered "evidence-based" which means there is significant research supporting its effectiveness.

My Story

When I became a dad to two (amazing) neurodivergent kids, it kicked off a lifelong journey into understanding the unique strengths and challenges that are inherent to being gifted and neurodivergent. As it turns out, I'd been learning about giftedness my whole life because I – like many – was an "undiagnosed" gifted person.

In 2012, I woke up in the middle of the night with hives all over my body from the stress of having my second child, running a tech startup, and moving for the umpteenth time. This set off my own journey of healing a few decades of unprocessed trauma, grief, and...you know...life.

My career started as a semi-professional hockey player in 1999 at the age of 17. Sixteen broken bones later – including one fractured skull – it was time for a change.

As one does, I earned a degree in International Development, moved to Latin America, and joined a human rights organization. I soon discovered I was more passionate about my hobbies – design and software – than I was about administrative work. 

So, surprisingly, I ended up in advertising. I moved to NYC and became an award-winning creative before finally setting sail to pursue a lifelong dream: become an entrepreneur. I founded a financial technology company that was named CNN's top 15 financial products of the year two years running. It was exhilarating and remarkably difficult – hence the aforementioned panic attack.

Fast forward a ten years and I began coaching entrepreneurs, executives, and organizations and returned to school for a master's degree in therapy. While I specialize in gifted people, creatives, and entrepreneurs, what I really love is helping people become more themselves, regardless of age, gender, or profession.
