I’m with you in this. I see you. We are learning new things everyday and facing new challenges. I can tell you a little about me to get started.

I do that with exercise, spiritual self care, creativity and quality relationships.

"Let's practice going to therapy with the intention of wellness, not just when you're in crisis. Therapy is a space to learn more about yourself, your relationships, and how your life experiences impact you. You can go to therapy without having a major life problem and with the intention of growth, remaining productive, and just to talk to a neutral party." -Nedra Tawwab Hello! I'm Sophie! I am licensed therapist in Minnesota with 8+ years of post-licensure experience. I have experience in helping people with stress and anxiety, motivation, self esteem, and confidence, & depression. I am honored to hold space with you on your journey of becoming. I am guided by The Principles of Community/Cultural Health Practices (Adopted by the Health and Wellness Committee of the Board of Directors Of the Powderhorn Phillips Cultural Wellness Center December 9, 1996). "Center practitioners, e.g. instructors, facilitators, teachers, advisors and therapists, will: 1. Embrace a variety of safe, effective options in assessment and instruction, including: a) education for lifestyle changes and self-care; b) cultural and complementary practices; and c) conventional health care services; d) an enhanced sense of community and the philosophy of community in the approach to assessment and instruction. 2. Assist persons in searching for the underlying causes of disease in the cultural and community context. 3. Create a foundation of confidence in self-healing as the context for discussions of disease and health problems. Recognize that a person’s own innate healing capacities are the most powerful means for sustaining and improving health. 4. Help people to take responsibility for their health and get the information they need to be well. A tremendous amount of healing takes place when people take responsibility for their own healing and the healing of their community and when the community takes responsibility for the healing of its members. 5. Engage persons in self-assessment and personal goal attainment that is connected to family, kinship, and community and culture. 6. Teach and guide those persons living with a disease as whole persons and all persons as members of a community. 7. Present, when possible, lifestyle changes and renewed decision-making within a cultural context as preferable to clinical options. 8. Emphasize prevention over treatment and teach that prevention must involve the whole community. 9. View illness as affecting a person within the context of a whole community, not as an isolated event. 10. Teach that the ideal healing relationship considers the spiritual, physical, historical, creative and cultural evolution of the problem and the maturity of the person and the practitioner. © 1996 Powderhorn Phillips Cultural Wellness Center 11. Understand that the quality of the existing relationship between the person and the practitioner is a major determinant of healing outcomes. 12. Recognize that practitioners significantly influence healing persons by the example they set. 13. Understand that quality of life, life cycles, illness, pain and the dying process can be learning and healing opportunities for persons, families and practitioners. 14. Teach each person to learn how their tradition presents the healing power of love, hope, creativity, sharing, trust, affirmation, humor and enthusiasm and how that tradition teaches how to work with hostility, shame, greed, depression and prolonged fear, anger and grief in the healing process. 15. Strive to adopt an attitude of cultural dignity for persons, themselves and other practitioners. Community connections and cultural dignity are powerful medicines. 16. Understand that optimal health is much more than the absence of sickness. It is the conscious pursuit of a community’s highest qualities of the spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, environmental and social aspects of the human experience. 17. Give assistance to persons in tracing and renewing a sense of connectedness to tradition and community in order to establish a large number of people in each community who can facilitate cross-cultural interface as well as assess and establish the standards for community health improvement. 18. Recognize and teach that a person’s wellness, the wellness of the community, and the wellness of the planet are all interconnected. 19. Support people to recognize and accept the wisdom within themselves and their elders and to tap into the life-affirming ceremonies, rituals, practices, disciplines and philosophies from their cultural tradition. Help them to understand their actions and how they view themselves affect and are affected by the community. 20. Honor each person’s and each tradition’s private space in the spirit of respecting sacred space and vulnerability. Recognize that safety is key to the healing process. Honor the place where a person is and the pace at which they choose to move from that place. 21. Teach that the necessary health resources are accessible to all members of the community when the ancient wisdom, the symbols and new knowledge from each culture are visible and when the skills and knowledge of all members of the community are shared." © 1996 Powderhorn Phillips Cultural Wellness Center

Greetings, My name is Dr. Aja King, LPCC and I am a seasoned licensed professional with over two decades of experience who currently resides in Minnesota, I am deeply committed to guiding individuals through a spectrum of challenges including addiction, relationship issues, trauma, and struggles with self-esteem. Central to my approach is creating a nurturing and non-judgmental space where clients feel empowered to express their thoughts and emotions freely. My academic journey led me to earn a doctorate from Argosy University in Counseling Psychology, with a research focus on professional identity development and workplace bullying. This research not only shed light on the impact of workplace aggression on individuals' self-esteem and professional roles but also underscored the crucial link between job satisfaction and interpersonal relationships. I firmly believe in nurturing healthy relationships as they are vital components of our existence and deserve dedicated attention to thrive. Throughout my extensive career, I have navigated various settings including geriatrics, child protective services, substance abuse, and corporate wellness, addressing diverse issues such as end-of-life decisions, career transitions, family dynamics, and mental health concerns like PTSD, anxiety, and depression. I view seeking therapy as a courageous step towards a more fulfilling life, and I am dedicated to supporting clients on this transformative journey. To augment my practice, I have invested in professional development aimed at enhancing clients' understanding of the mind-body connection. Integrating mindfulness and meditation techniques into therapy sessions has proven invaluable in promoting holistic wellness. I have also authored "Finding My Cool," a children's book available on Amazon, which introduces meditation to young readers, inspired by my own children's experiences. In addition to traditional therapeutic approaches, I offer complementary holistic modalities including Healing Touch Therapy, Reiki, and Music Meditation Coaching, recognizing the importance of addressing the interconnected aspects of mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. I design retreat and spa experiences tailored for families, communities, and organizations, offering a sanctuary for relaxation, rejuvenation, and renewal. These bespoke services provide a tranquil space for individuals to unwind, recharge, and reconnect with themselves and others. Whether it's a family getaway, a community event, or a corporate retreat, my offerings cater to the unique needs of each group, fostering a serene environment where guests can exhale deeply and find inner peace. Through curated experiences, I aim to inspire moments of tranquility and serenity, leaving guests feeling refreshed and revitalized. Visit my website for more details www.brave-defiance.online.

Understanding the type of therapy you'd like to search for is crucial before finding a therapist or psychologist in Ellsworth.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses.

Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy in the Ellsworth region and in the state of Minnesota. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

A mental health counselor working through their own in-person therapy practice in Ellsworth or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, couples counseling, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, self help tips, offer life coaching, family therapy, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about therapists and mental health services

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Ellsworth area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling with a therapist compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Ellsworth therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Ellsworth due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Ellsworth may not take health insurance, some in the state of Minnesota may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With a BetterHelp therapist throughout the state of Minnesota you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks). If you're looking for a therapist, Cincinnati offers a variety of professionals who can help with your mental health needs at a price you can afford.

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a Ellsworth 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.

Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth 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. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 56129 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help from therapists in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth.

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 Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth 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 Ellsworth, 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.

Ellsworth 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.
