Hello, and welcome! I am Calah, a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who has practiced serving whole families individually and as a group for the last three years in Minnesota, and served my community before licensure in many nonprofit roles. I believe in connecting the mind, body, and soul so you can live an integrated and present life. I have worked with clients in foster care, youth coming out of corrections, individuals managing addictions, people going through life transitions, Young adults ambivalent about their future, and clients with severe mental health disorders. I believe in Narrative therapy and reclaiming your life experiences and crafting your own future and there is a lot to gain from having someone supporting you on the way! I practice a Somatic inspired therapy modality and have experience in play therapy, art therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and integrating CBT skills for mindfulness.
I am excited that your steps of your journey led you here! I want to hold space for everything that got you to this moment and hold space for everywhere you're headed!

After just two sessions with Calah I already feel like I’m making progress on my therapeutic goals. Calah makes me feel comfortable talking about challenging subjects that allow for a space to work through them. I’m so grateful that I found a therapist who is as helpful as Calah has been!

Calah is a great listener and makes some wonderful associations. Not really have a whole lot of expectations going into this process, I've very pleased. Thank you!

Calah is so sweet and caring. Very solution driven while offering guidance on how to navigate your emotions in a way that is comfortable for you. After our first session I knew she was going to be a great fit for my counseling needs.
