8 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a person-centered therapist who believes in the potential in each individual. I have worked with individuals from highly varied backgrounds and work to see the potential for growth in each person. I have experience teaching, training, and providing therapy for individuals of all ages. I help largely through helping people find their motivation, self-worth, and potential in order to solve issues ranging from past traumas to current dilemmas. Through my career to this point I have been trained in Motivational Interviewing, Mediation, Thinking for Change, and Clinical Hypnosis. In session I also use techniques ranging from CBT, Adlerian psychology, and more. My experience has often involved individuals struggling with severe mental illness, substance use/alcohol use disorders, trauma, PTSD, and domestic violence. I have also done work with individuals working on parenting skills for typically developing children as well as those with developmental/intellectual delays. I am married and we have two sons.

35 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker with a Doctorate in Psychology practicing in Minnesota with over 35 years of experience working as a counselor or therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including trauma, victims-survivors of intimate partner violence, those who have been abusive toward a family member or others and those who have witnessed hurtful behaviors in the home or Community, parenting problems, sexual violence, bullying experiences, emotional regulation, depression, anxiety, relationship issues and chemical health concerns. My counseling style is warm and interactive. It has been my experience that the best results leading to any healing or through a helping process are based in establishing a professional mutually respectful relationship. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in the use of stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, Adlerian thinking, a Feminist - Oppression perspective, with a Developmental and attachment lens. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek support, information and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here ready to be by your side to support and empower you as you are journeying on your current life path. I look forward to working with you!

I see the therapy process as a partnership and the client (You) are the most important part of that process. It is your process and I see myself, as the therapist, as a part of the process like a guide. Feedback is important to me, as I can use this information to help guide you in the way that is most helpful. Most of my work is done in a model that is based on helping you find your strengths to resolve any problems that you identify. I use cognitive behavioral therapy, which helps you examine how what you think, and how you are thinking can impact your experiences. Also I focus on helping you find solutions to your situation and ways of looking at things that help you to find solutions. I also encourage people to find their own ways of self-care and rejuvenation, because all of us need to use the best self-care that we possibly can, in order to find the best quality of life for ourselves in this world.

Greetings! I have been a licensed psychologist in Minnesota for over 30 years, and during that time I've worked in public schools, in higher education as a counselor educator, and doing individual counseling work. At the core of my work is a deep respect for the clients and students with whom I work, and a strong belief in people’s ability to grow and transform themselves when provided with the support they need. I am well-versed in a variety of counseling theories and techniques, but it really comes down to the way you would like your counseling experience to look and feel. Let's not worry about adhering to a certain theory. Rather, let's figure out what you want and need. And if this is your first counseling experience and you don't know what you want it to look like, no worries. We'll figure it out together. While each client may have a different counseling experience, if you are my client you can expect a few things. We will have a thorough conversation about what you would like to be different in your life and how counseling can help you get there. Our conversations will be mostly strengths-based, meaning we will focus more on finding solutions than immersing ourselves in problems. But sometimes people need to talk through their problems before moving forward, and if you need to talk difficult past experiences, or times you have been marginalized or discriminated against or otherwise mistreated, we will talk about that for as long as you need, and you can expect to feel strongly supported. If you have experienced trauma or loss, we will talk about that. If you come to a session and just need to vent to a caring listener, that is what will happen. But the overarching goal of our sessions will be to help you move forward and figure out a path to a more fulfilling life.

Education and prevention work; we do have remarkable transformations in our lives when we learn, apply, and follow through on simple principles that are freely available to us, but that we may not be aware of, see, or remember. Our focus is based on the experience that many of our perceptions, thinking patterns, and corresponding feelings are (paradoxically) what cause or generate much of our own psychic pain and suffering. Learning how and why this may be so is to unlock a great mystery. Gaining knowledge of how our perceptions arise, evolve into our beliefs, reactions, and behavior patterns is “therapeutic,” and can open new ways of being in the world. My professional experience over the last 25 years includes working as a behavioral health provider, healthcare consultant, professor, and executive. Clinically, my work ranges through assessment, forensic evaluation, education, and prevention strategies across counseling, and training services for individuals, groups, and organizations. Academically, my appointments have included professorships in both Community and Clinical Psychology, and applied research publications in behavioral healthcare involving patient satisfaction and healing factors, barriers to healing and recovery, designing outcome measurements, and the use of technology in clinical environments.

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family in Barrett?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Barrett therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

Barrett therapists in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of Barrett therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Barrett therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words with a psychotherapist.

With a lot of people in MN, therapists may be booked out with clients.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Barrett counselor?

Before seeing your Barrett therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions while offering mental health services. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy in Barrett.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist for therapy if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice from a therapist. A Barrett licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy with a Barrett counselor can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles that a counselor can help with.

Is mental health care and therapy with a therapist worth it?

Therapy with a licensed counselor is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health therapist has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Barrett, Minnesota can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Barrett has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions during telehealth appointments?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
