Alaine Lagasse

(BSW, MS, LPC, Minnesota, &, Alaska)

About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Minnesota and Alaska with 8 years of experience working as a readjustment counselor. As a readjustment counselor I worked with military veterans transitioning from military to civilian life. I assisted clients with various concerns associated with combat and sexual trauma including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substances abuse, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical and emotional trauma and/or abuse.

My counseling style is interactive but somewhat direct as I believe in honesty and facing our fears. I also believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I respect and honor all, including those who identify as Straight, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness and acceptance & commitment therapy. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Alaine is the best therapist I have ever worked with. I feel comfortable speaking my truth and she is always so supportive and understanding. She never fails to provide me with resources, advice, and most of all, Alaine is a wonderful support system. This has been one of the hardest years of my life and Alaine has helped me navigate it and better my mental health in so many ways. I could not have grown and changed so much without her help. I am so thankful for her and everything she has done for me! I highly recommend Alaine as a counselor.
