About Me

My therapy approach is to empower and guide you in a natural unfolding of your potential. Grounded in the belief that every person has the wisdom within them to achieve true joy and freedom in life, I am here as your guide and support. My aim is to help you to access the wisdom within you through a process of increasing awareness, creating new pathways for joy, and integrating your experience in a way that helps you to feel balanced and centered in your body, mind, and spirit. I offer a compassionate and supportive environment for this process to take place.
I specialize in Mind-body psychotherapy, integrating Reiki healing and Kum Nye Tibetan yoga techniques for chronic pain and health issues, anger, anxiety, relationship difficulties, depression, eating disorders, trauma, addiction, spiritual self-development, and more. I graduated in 2007 with a Bachelors degree in Psychology and took off for some much needed life experience to deepen my understanding of myself and the world around me. I discovered Buddhist teachings, psychology, meditation, yoga, and philosophy which have deeply enriched my understanding of suffering and it's causes as well as it’s cures. After some wonderful experiences connecting with these teachings and the beauty of the West coast, I returned to Minnesota to complete my Masters in Social work through the University of St. Thomas and College of St. Catherine School of Social Work in 2013. I've worked as an in-home therapist and in an eating disorder clinic, facilitating individual and group sessions. In 2016, I was finally able to realize my dream to open an integrative clinic with my sister. Through our private practice, we've been able to offer yoga and meditation classes, Reiki training, mind-body psychotherapy, acupuncture and reiki, as well as other unique classes such as sound journeying and how to create herbal tinctures.
In our sessions, we may talk about what inspires you, what holds you back, and how to break unhelpful patterns in your life. Meditation, yoga, Reiki healing, mindfulness practice, and communion with the earth may be integrated in to our sessions if you are interested. You're Mind-Body holds the key to your healing and I am simply a guide. I love to add humor to our sessions and aim for you to leave our time together feeling light, calm, and clear.

Blaire has been so great to work with! She is proactive, gives great suggestions on supplemental resources and has a calm and understanding demeanor. I’ve had a great counseling experience so far and can’t wait to continue.

Blaire has a way of making you feel so at-ease when she's speaking with you. She has helped me through some of the most difficult events of my life, and I am lucky that she was the counselor assigned to me. I can't thank her enough with how much she has helped me shape my mindset.

In the short time I have formed a therapy relationship with Blaire, it is obvious how passionate she is about helping others. She is very considerate, listens and responds in a great time, she is patient and she is so thorough in her responses. It makes me feel so validated and I truly feel like I can improve the quality of my life and start to heal with her help. Thank you so much Blaire for all that you do. I appreciate you. You are an amazing human being.

So far I've been really satisfied with the conversation and direction we've been going. Its been very helpful to open up about some struggles and get a new perspective on everything and how to make little changes with big impacts.

Blaire has such a warm energy that she shows every time we speaks! I appreciate her guidance and how kind she is.
The way that I can connect with her on a spiritual level is amazing as well! This is something that has made her a unique therapist, unlike anything I’ve had before. Highly recommend Blaire! :)

Blaire has helped me so much in such a short period of time. I was losing hope from therapist at my local hospitals and she has shown me that there are better options. I am truly happy that I downloaded BetterHelp.

I’ve only been using BetterHelp for a little less than a month and I’ve recommended it to at least 5 people. Absolutely love it!
