Lino Lakes is called a “community with a vision” because they are constantly trying to improve on their town. One of the things they pride themselves on is their parks and recreation. With 18 parks that have over 6,000 acres and 30 miles of trails, there is plenty to enjoy in Lino Lakes. 

However, if you are trying to deal with an anxiety condition such as social anxiety disorder (SAD) then you are not going to be able to enjoy much in these parks. SAD makes it difficult for you to be around other people and can even cause panic attacks. Luckily, there are many of the best therapists in the state in Lino Lakes who can help.

11 years of experience as a mental health therapist

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and have been providing counseling services for 11 years in both face to face and virtual platforms. During my time I have been able to assist many individuals struggling with a wide variety of struggles including depression, anxiety, low self esteem, severe and persistent mental health symptoms, relational and family concerns, and substance abuse issues. My approach to counseling in each and every session is one that is focused on meeting the individual where they are. I am focused on making this process warm and comforting for you as I understand that the concerns being brought to the sessions are ones causing great discomfort. The theoretical approaches I utilize are Person Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Reality Therapy, and Behavioral Therapy. Again, all of this is just saying that together we will begin processing through the concerns being presented and identify ways in which you can begin working through them. I understand that it takes a great deal of courage for one to reach out and ask for help and I commend you on taking this step. I am so blessed that you are choosing to allow me to be apart of this journey with you and am looking forward to meeting you. At this time I am able to provide services via the chat sessions, phone sessions and messages. I respond in the chat Tuesday through Saturday checking in several times per day.

I am proud of you for taking this first step toward improving your situation! Have you been in therapy before and found it helpful, but weren’t quite ready to make all the changes you wanted in life? Are you ready to do the work and face your shadow side? Looking for a therapist who can be honest and direct with you so you will stop self-sabotaging and get out of your own way? Then come learn some new skills with me! As a professional who has been in therapy before, I understand it’s not always easy. Therapy can be quite beneficial, but there are times it will require a lot of deep self-reflection, hard work, patience, time, and the uncomfortable reality of facing the parts of yourself that aren’t so nice. In fact, there are moments you may not like therapy or even me! I will be honest with you and not just tell you what you want to hear, but of course compassionately. This is a safe space, with no judgment. Therapy does require getting outside one's comfort zone, and while this may seem intimidating and scary at first, I assure you, you don’t have to be afraid because you’re not alone; I am here to guide and support you through the process of your healing journey. Don’t let your fear, anxiety, depression, grief, attachment trauma, or any other issues continue to prevent you from making the changes you want in your life. More than likely, these thoughts and behaviors protected you at some point in time, but now they’re running your life and making you feel miserable instead of happy. Don't be a victim of your circumstances. Once you come through the hard parts you will be all the better for it as you transform into the person you always knew you could be! As an INFJ, Enneagram 4, self-identified HSP, and Pisces, I have all the feels! I enjoy utilizing my strong empathy with a holistic (mind-body) approach to therapy, combining solution-focused & strengths-based techniques along with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and alternative methods such as progressive muscle relaxation, mindfulness meditation, breathwork, and cultural sensitivity, etc. I am a certified yoga instructor (CYT-200) and am working on my certification in Integrative Mental Health. My style of therapy is more direct, yet collaborative, so I like to ask thought-provoking questions, offer feedback, and provide practical tools for you to work on outside of the session as well as expect you to engage in sessions and have a say in what we talk about. I can only help you when I know what is going on in your life and you attend sessions consistently. If you are motivated to do the work and take that next step, I am here to encourage and empower you! One of my main approaches is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which is a short-term therapy technique that can help people find new ways to behave by changing their thought patterns. The goal is for you to continue using these tools long after therapy so you can become your own support. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Minnesota with over 8 years of experience working as a mental health counselor. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Theater, and English from Dartmouth College and a Master of Arts in Counseling from Bethel University. I have extensive experience as a school-based therapist working with PreK-12th graders and their families. I have also worked in private practice and online settings providing therapy to teens and young adults. I have worked with a wide range of clients of varied ages with various concerns, including stress/anxiety, low self-esteem, identity development, codependency and attachment issues, life transitions, depression, grief/loss, social anxiety, and insomnia. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I), and Experiential Play Therapy. I am still growing experience in complex trauma (C-PTSD), crisis intervention, self-harming thoughts, and the use of Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) tools for emotional dysregulation.

Life can be challenging for all of us and I believe it takes courage to be vulnerable. I understand opening up to a person can feel overwhelming. I strongly believe that if you don’t feel a connection with your therapist, it won’t be useful. I strive to build a supportive and collaborative relationship with my clients and provide an empathic, nonjudgmental, safe environment. I am truly honored when people trust me with their story and I believe that partnering allows us a space to heal and grow. Many times life challenges can leave us feeling defeated, but I work towards helping client’s embrace and build on their strengths by offering space that allows for continued self-discovery and realization. We can work together to help you identify and set achievable goals through embracing your strengths and offering you tools. I am currently practicing in the state of Minnesota, as a licensed clinical social worker. I have over 10 years of experience working with clients with diverse backgrounds. I use approaches which include, person-centered, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, solution focused, trauma informed and mindfulness. But most importantly I ensure that I meet my clients where they are and that my clients feels valued. I tailor our sessions to meet your needs and goals.

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

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

Before seeing your Lino Lakes 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 Lino Lakes.

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 Lino Lakes 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 Lino Lakes 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 Lino Lakes, 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.

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.
