Eric is a licensed clinical counselor and received his M.A in Counseling and Psychological Services from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota with a Graduate Certificate in Addiction Studies. He received his B.A. in Psychology from Bethel University. Eric is also an adjunct professor teaching courses in Psychology and Addiction Counseling. He enjoys teaching his patients useful skills and knowledge to help them make the changes they want to make in their life.
His approach to healing and change is informed by cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), somatic therapy, and transpersonal psychology. He has received training in Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy and can offer these services to help people move forward in life. He practices through an anti-capitalist lens to help people understand how systems of oppression and control affect their mental, physical, and spiritual well-being. Eric views therapy as an experience that can help people learn to accept who they are and to focus their attention on what is most meaningful and important to them. He provides individual psychotherapy for people struggling with addiction, anxiety, depression, and general life stressors. He believes that developing a safe and accepting relationship with each of his patients is essential for them to learn new ways of thinking and behaving, to create meaning and purpose, and to move towards the life they want to live.
When he is not doing therapy or teaching, you can find him running ultramarathons, downhill skiing, rollerblading, or taking his dog, Harley, for a walk.
