Stacey Tweedt, MA Psychotherapy, LPCC, LADC-S; When we give our power away or shrink ourselves, it creates a vacuum & we are compelled to fill it somehow (surrendering to others, losing ourselves in relationships, addictions or dysfunctional /sabotaging behaviors). We react by either processing or projecting it & this pattern will continue to repeat itself until it is addressed. That pattern prevents a major human function from happening, which is to feel the truth of all our feelings to some degree. Both men & women, boys & girls are shamed away from feelings, often through violence, abuse or neglect whether by families or culture. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor & Addictions (LADC-S) Counselor-that has worked in the fields of addiction, corrections, social work and mental health recovery for 15+ years, providing clinical services in a wide array of settings. As a therapist, my goal is to empower clients to build fulfilling, values-rich lives. I work with individuals and couples in recovery (The Gottman Method Certified Levels 1&2). We will work together to develop insight, identify personal values, and implement skills that will foster growth. I use an integrated approach including; Gottman Therapy, Adlerian, Schema Based, Solution Focused, Cognitive Processing, Somatic Experiencing, Polyvagal Theory-Informed, Mindfulness and other skills based therapies/interventions to support learning, symptom management. I approach therapy with directness and a sense of humor. I’ve learned much about the human experience — no one is immune to suffering. Everyone experiences pain. We are resilient & we are all deserving of happiness.

Their experiences can result in a range of stand-alone or co-occurring issues with anxiety, major depressive concerns, trauma backgrounds, personality concerns and issues related to neurodiversity conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), selective mutism, panic attacks, Tourette’s syndrome, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and autism spectrum disorder. Additionally, I have experience working with people going through grief and loss associated with chronic pain, major illness, death, suicide, divorce, abandonment, foster care, adoption, child abuse and neglect, juvenile delinquency, addictions and dependence, poverty and systemic societal barriers to quality of life goals, sexual identity and LGBTQ+ concerns and those interested in reframing their choices to more sex-positive and alternative lifestyles.

I also find benefit at times from Gottman Relationships and Conflict Resolution materials and Narrative, Person-Centered and Schema Therapy. And overall, I tend to find many of the people I see appreciate my understanding and attention to Solution Focused best practices. I see each client and their struggles as being unique and requiring an individual plan that is important to them, regardless of what others might think would best benefit them to work on first. I try to approach each client with empathy and genuine regard and strive to help my clients find wholeness. For these reasons, I appreciate many aspects of person-centered therapy. I also incorporate a behavioral approach toward facilitating change. I believe everyone can benefit from the skills taught in Dialectical Behavior Therapy. I aim to teach people how to increase their emotional regulation and distress tolerance while increasing their use of mindfulness and coping skills and making needed lifestyle changes that maximize their mental health and quality of life balance and improve their interpersonal relationships.

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

Before seeing your Coon Rapids 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 Coon Rapids.

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 Coon Rapids 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 Coon Rapids counselor can be dependent on your process.

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 Coon Rapids, 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.

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.
