I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Minnesota and Alaska with 10 years of experience. As a readjustment counselor I worked with military veterans transitioning from military to civilian life. I assisted clients with various concerns associated with combat and sexual trauma including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, substances abuse, and career challenges. As an independent contractor working with the BetterHelp platform I help many people from all walks of life who have experienced physical and emotional trauma and/or abuse. My counseling style is interactive but somewhat direct as I believe in honesty and facing our fears. I also believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. I respect and honor all, including those who identify as Straight, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Questioning. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness and acceptance & commitment therapy. I will tailor our dialogue and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs. It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you!

Therapy provides the powerful opportunity to connect with another person who knows what it's like to experience suffering but who also knows the way through it. It’s easy to feel alone during the painful parts of life such as when others hurt us, we let ourselves down, or plans don’t play out the way we hoped, but the reality is that all of us can relate to these moments because they are part of the human experience. As a fellow human, I can empathize with your suffering. As a therapist, I can help alleviate it with evidence-based treatments tailored to you. I am honored to have been working in mental health for the past six years. I have gained a wide variety of experience during that time working with different emotional, mental, and behavioral challenges among adults, children, and families. I have a special place in my heart for working with fear-based symptoms like anxiety and trauma, which is why I specialize in treating those conditions. We all need and deserve to feel safe within ourselves and our surroundings, and I am passionate about building that sense of safety for others who are missing it. If you choose to work with me, you will be met with non-judgment, empathy, compassion, and a playful sense of humor when appropriate. I value a collaborative approach to therapy where I trust in you as the expert on yourself to help me guide our therapeutic process in the right direction. I am hopeful that together we can begin to bridge the gap between where you are and where you would like to be.

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist. My pronouns are she/her. I am trained in somatic psychotherapy, and I believe that people are not good or bad even when they have some troubling or even harmful behavior. I believe that there is no wrong way to be a person in the world and view all behaviors and choices as a reflection and collection of what has built up inside of or is part of the person making the choice. As a therapist this is reflected in my ability to establish relationships with my clients from a place of curiosity and non-judgment. My therapeutic foundation rests largely on existentialism and feminist theory. The existential foundation includes the belief that we are responsible for ourselves in the world and that we are happier when we are able to find and create meaning in our lives. The feminist theory that is a part of my work means is that when I am working with a client, that we explore the power dynamics in relationships not only from how it feels but also in the context of a larger socio-cultural lens and social location such as context and awareness of privilege. My approach to therapy stems from an underlying belief that all people are worthy and that throughout our lives we internalize reactions from others in the world that make us question our value. Because of that, people often start to think that there is something "wrong" with the way that they think and feel. My approach includes the belief that all feelings and thoughts have a purpose and are not "wrong." This includes anxiety and depression. I am a great fit for individuals hoping to find out what the thoughts and feelings inside are trying to say. Healing starts with accepting who we are, not convincing ourselves that there is something wrong with who we are. I view therapy as a collaboration between therapist and client and expect my clients to bring their own questions to the work we do together. I am typically not a great fit, for someone expecting to be told what to do. I will not do that.

Hello! My name is Bob and I am a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Minnesota. I have 30+ years’ experience providing services in Chemical and Mental health as well as disability services. My early years were serving individuals with the co-occurring disorders of chemical and mental health. They are still my “people”. The past 20 years I have been serving individuals with intellectual disabilities as a supervisor and manager. I believe everyone wants to feel good about themselves and can solve their problems. Sometimes, solving our problems involves others. That's part of being independent and resourceful, knowing when we need others. I like people and will be curious about you as well as your issues. I’ll believe in you! You’ll feel that caring and curious spirit. If you work with me, this is what I’m most confident about: • You’ll like and accept yourself, with all your beauty, current struggles and flaws. • You’ll learn to manage your feelings so they don’t manage you. Doing so will help you be successful. • You’ll rediscover your purpose and become more hopeful. • You’ll discover gifts and strengths that you didn’t know you had. But, you’ll also have realistic expectations of yourself as well as life itself. Being human is beautiful and hard, even sometimes terrible but oh so worthwhile and wonderful. On December 26, 2004 I was body surfing off the Puerto Vallarta. It was the day of the tsunami which devastated Indonesia. A large wave beyond my skill level broke my neck and damaged my spinal cord. That savage gift and personal walk with disability has enhanced all of my skills and knowledge. So, I’m also personally and professionally well-versed in loss, life transitions and transformation. Mental and chemical health have been part of my personal journey. My approach to therapy is person centered: you're the expert on your life and will determine the direction and depth of therapy. There is no substitute for your wisdom, intuition and the steps you’ve already taken to solve your problems. We will work together but like physical therapy most of the work will be accomplished outside of our sessions. I lead with empathy and warmth but once you know and trust me, I won’t shirk from compassionate, respectful honesty. Compassion without honesty is enabling. We will work together in a positive manner. I'll be honest with you I don't think we're a good fit. I primarily use evidence-based techniques including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), motivational interviewing, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) and relapse prevention approaches. I tend to take a solution focused approach but some individuals may need significant time to process and heal from childhood pain, trauma or previous relationships. Dialectical behavior therapy can help you develop skills such as emotional regulation, distress tolerance, mindfulness and interpersonal effectiveness. CBT can help you see the connection between thoughts, feelings and behavior. Motivational interviewing will help you increase your motivation and focus on your progress. Relapse prevention takes a positive approach to learning from your current and past journey to chemical health. As referenced in the opening paragraph, I have worked with individuals who have a wide range of concerns including addictions, depression, anxiety, disability, grief and loss as well as trauma. Most of us are ambiguous about change and it takes courage to seek healing and wellness. If you are ready to take further steps, I’m here to support and empower you. I look forward to working with you, Bob (Robert) Wagner LP PS: Outside of work, I’m passionate about my family, both the biological as well as the family I’ve chosen. I love to read, be involved in my community and sports.

I am a Licensed Psychologist with 20 years of experience. I have worked in outpatient clinics as well as school settings. Most recently, I have started my own private practice, Bryn Lowrie Healing. In addition to using traditional "talk" therapy, I also incorporate many mind-body and energy healing techniques. I am certified in Emotional Freedom Techniques-Tapping. Because this technique calms the stress response in your body, and connects with the unconscious part of your brain, you can get to your core issue more quickly. I specialize in treating anxiety, stress management, weight/food issues, life adjustment transitions, and grief/loss. My approach is to come alongside you to help you to discover your true self again. Healing occurs when all our aspects are balanced: our minds, bodies, spirits, and emotions. I specialize in healing that connects the mind and the body in order to balance all of these elements. The path to healing often lies deep within us; we just have to find it. My sessions involve a variety of methods to help you find your path. I use an integrative approach—drawing upon my years of therapy experience, my intuition, and many healing techniques—to find a combination that will work for you. It is an honor to be a part of your healing journey.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

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

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Hendricks 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 Hendricks 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 Hendricks 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 BetterHelp or clinicians 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).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Hendricks, Minnesota working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Hendricks above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets.

You can also try a Hendricks therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

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

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a 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.

A psychologist 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 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 Hendricks 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 lot of people in MN, providers may be booked out with clients.

If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 56136 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

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

Before seeing your 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. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist 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. A Hendricks 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 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.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy 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 professional 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 Hendricks, 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.

Hendricks 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?

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.
