  • Experience

    In addition to my teaching at St. Mary's University of Minnesota, I lecture at the University of Minnesota Medical School Department of Psychiatry. I have previously taught as an adjunct professor in the PsyD Program of the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. Professionally, I am a licensed psychologist in private practice. In my practice, I see adults, couples, adolescents and children for a variety of presenting issues and concerns. My area of expertise is domestic abuse. I have worked providing therapy to perpetrators, victims, and child witnesses of domestic abuse for almost 15 years. From 2002-2014 I practiced at Domestic Abuse Project in Minneapolis, MN. There I also supervised the Internship Program for interns and practicum students.
