I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy (LMFT) based in southwest Minnesota. My experience comes from provider direct mental health services to children, teens, and families for over 10 years. I have worked with individuals with varying level so abilities, mental health concerns, and stressors. I have experience working with presenting issues such as: depression, anxiety, trauma, parenting concerns, anger and aggression, relational difficulties, and family dynamics concerns.
I believe creating a positive therapeutic relationship with the people I work with is done best by provider a relaxed, open, and non-judgmental environment. I make an effort to approach each new relationship with an acute sensitivity and respect of each persons’ unique experience. My goal is to take a collaborative approach with others to ensure that they feel heard, are working towards the goals they have created, and in a way that they feel comfortable.
I have formal training in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Child Parent Psychotherapy (CPP), and Illness Management and Recovery. I have also completed an immersive course in Polyvagal Theory and have my 200 Yoga Teacher Training. I use this and many other techniques to approach each problem with a holistic approach backed by current research. I am a strong believer of using body based techniques to calm our body’s natural response to trauma and stress. While I find this to be effective approach, I am open to other approaches as I acknowledge it is not for everybody.
It takes a lot of strength and will power to work towards a more fulfilling and happier life. If you are ready to take that step, I am here to support and empower you.

Felicia is an angel.. I’ve needed therapy since before Covid and that really messed with me getting it when I needed it. But I am so thankful I found Felicia to help me process and talk about my emotions in a healthy way. She’s amazing.

Felicia has already made such an impact on my life in only 4 weeks. She makes me feel ok. Not weird or wrong. She's helping me in so many avenues and I can't wait to see where I'm at in a year! So so glad I took the plunge and Felicia was the way to go. Her knowledge is incredible and she shares it with you in a way that doesn't feel demeaning or bad. She has experience with trauma and couples as well which is already helping. I honestly can't say enough good things. The price is incredible too.

She listens, even when I am just venting or rambling and can somehow bring me back on topic or is able to focus the conversation.
