Minnesota is known for The Mall of America. In a way, life can be like a shopping mall. There are many places to go and many ways you can spend all your time in it. When you have a great life, you have enough money to buy whatever the mall has to offer as well. 

When your mental health is poor, you can end up being lost in the mall and have nowhere to go. A counselor can be your map to figure out where you should go. Talk to a Minnesota-based counselor today!

One of my greatest pleasures of being a counselor is the honor of witnessing and helping a client along their personal journey to a life worth living. I assist my clients, which include adolescents and adults, to find healthy perceptions of themselves, identify skills, and strengthen their relationships to find peace, hope, and joy. There is no single approach for every client, and I have been trained in a range of modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and client centered techniques. I have a Master’s degree in C...

I was not one to follow any traditional path to anything- much less to counseling. I grew up in rebellious times and quickly decided I was a non-conformist. But what exactly did that mean-in theory or practice? It's taken me a lifetime to find out with lots of detours along the way. This is now known mostly as 'lived experience'. Something each of us have, but sometimes do not highly value. What I can definitely tell you is that my practice is rooted in empathy and social justice. Much of my work (but not all) assists men who are seeking to improve and better...
