I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in MN with experience working as a mental health therapist in a private setting and also as a crisis counselor in a hospital. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, stress management, grief and loss, family and parenting issues, career challenges, and senior mental health along with support for their extended families and caregivers. I have experience working with individuals of all ages and have spent a good portion of my career working with the teenage and emerging adult population.
My style of therapy is focused on fostering a positive environment and building trust using a style of therapy that is self-empowering and non-judgmental. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral therapy with a provision of short term, solution-focused therapy, as well as long term supportive therapy. I try and utilize multiple therapy techniques including: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person-centered, Psychodynamic, Family Systems, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Academic skills training and Communication skills training. Helping clients to discover their own answers is the main goal of therapy.
Change is not easy and believing that you can change means that you have already taken the first step. I want to help support you through these changes. Looking forward to working with you!

Addy helped me through some hard times in my life. I know YouTube creators have pointed out some inconsistencies with BetterHelp, but this is not the case. Addy is an exceptional counselor and you would be absolutely blessed to have her. I know I am. 11/10, would get depressed all over again if it was Addy helping me through it.
Addy has been so patient, kind and genuine with my needs. She’s incredible at giving applicable resources to help me with my depression and anxiety issues and has a real knack for making me feel comfortable in talking to her. She’s just a really sweet, understanding person who doesn’t just give you an assignment or resources. She helps you through them and helps you understand the importance behind the things she assigns. I’m very thankful BetterHelp matched us up.
Addie is the best! She listens to me, provides excellent feedback, and never judges! I am so thankful for all her help!
Adrienne is great! She often sends me check-in messages if I forget to respond or if it's been a while without talking. She really cares for the people she talks to and it shows. Looking forward to working with her more. :)
Adrienne has been very resourceful and a reinsurance for five months!

Adrienne is amazing and understanding. When I tell her anything regarding my situations, she has amazing insight and ways to learn more about my situations or ways to help overcome them. I have learnt more about myself in the sessions with Adrienne, then I have my whole entire life. I can't wait to continue working with Adrienne and learn more about myself and change the way I think.
She asks the right questions. She doesn't "force" it out of you. She gradually gets into it. Personally I like this, and it makes it more comfortable. Your personal space is for you and who ever you would like to bring in, and she is welcoming.
Adrienne is real and friendly! She helped me feel batter really fast. I recommend!
She is an amazing, open minded, smart and an extremely laid back person. It felt like talking to a friend rather than feeling uptight and judged. She is a great counselor, and even though it was for a short period of a week, she helped me think things over in a positive way, and helped me feel at ease.
Adrienne has been very helpful, even through a short time. She is an excellent listener and is relatable. I appreciate her patience and how comfortable she makes me feel.
I loved Adrienne Kovar. She helped me immensely and was very quick to respond which was very nice!
Adrienne is very patient and open minded to abstract situations.
