In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

The phrase "Yes, and..." is a fundamental concept in improvisational theater. It means accepting what has been presented to you, and building upon it to move the scene forward. In other words, it's about saying yes to what's happening in the moment, and adding to it rather than shutting it down. This concept can also be applied to life and therapy practice. Life is full of unexpected changes and challenges that we don't always have control over. We can either resist these changes and say "no way!", or we can accept them and say "yes, and..." to move forward. This means acknowledging and accepting the reality of our situation, and then actively working to improve it by taking positive steps towards a desired outcome. In therapy, "Yes, and..." can be used as a technique to promote growth and change. It involves accepting a client's experience without judgment or resistance, and then building on that experience to explore new possibilities and opportunities for growth. By embracing a "Yes, and..." mindset, clients can move beyond limitations and challenges, and explore new ways of thinking and being. Overall, the concept of "Yes, and..." encourages us to be open to new experiences, embrace change, and be willing to take risks. It's a powerful tool for personal growth and development, and can help us to navigate life's challenges with grace and resilience.

Work History

Hey there! I've been a child and family therapist since way back in 2001. Let me give you a quick rundown of my experience: I've been working as a therapist at my own practice since 2016. I do in-person therapy at a barn with horses. Yep, that’s right, outside in nature, in a pasture, in the barn, and sometimes in the office when people would rather sit and talk. I love doing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, it is an amazing way to reach therapy goals that can hard to reach in a typical office setting. I also provide telehealth therapy. This allows you to meet with me where ever you are, comfortably and conveniently. While I started my own practice I also worked at Clearwater Counseling in Woodbury, MN from 2017-2020. There, I offered a variety of therapies to kids, teens, and adults, including play therapy, talk therapy, trauma-focused therapy, animal assisted therapy, art and play based therapy, family therapy, and parent education. From 2014 to 2017, I was a therapist at Treehouse Psychology in Shoreview, MN. I offered similar therapies to children, adolescents, and their parents. From 2011 to 2014, I was a home-based therapist with Family Innovations, working with at-risk children and families. I provided clinical therapeutic skill services and worked closely with schools and other professionals to help children and families succeed. I took a break from work between 2007-2011 to be home with my kids. What a wild ride that has been! Between 2004 and 2007, I worked as a Family Options Case Manager at St. David Child Development, helping high-risk families navigate life and connect with resources and support. From 2001 to 2007, I worked as a Senior Therapist and Mental Health Practitioner at Behavioral Dimensions, where I provided home-based therapy to children with autism. So, that's a quick rundown of my background! I hold a Post-Graduate Certificate in Marriage and Family Therapy from Bethel University.
