Hello and welcome! My name is Hannah Puls and I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor issued by the state of Minnesota. I have seven years of counseling experience and have worked with adults with a wide range of health issues including trauma, anxiety and depression, addiction, crisis counseling, family issues, sleep concerns and more. I am experienced in many therapeutic techniques and work collaboratively with my client to find what works with them. I believe that the relationship between counselor and client is the best predictor of success and work to nurture that relationship throughout the therapeutic experience. Depending on client needs, I will utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to challenge negative thinking patterns and draw parallels to desired behavior change. I encourage autonomy in clients and will work diligently with you to come up with solutions that promote independence and self-reliance in the future. I offer sessions in the chat room style so please be aware that you will not get phone/video options for communication. Whatever the reason you are seeking extra support, I am here to offer a non-judgmental space to explore answers and walk with you on your journey.

"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

I am licensed as a clinical social worker in Minnesota with 20 years of professional work experience. I have a strengths-based, values-focused approach. You are the narrator of your life, and sometimes with a few small changes to how we write the story--how we see ourselves, others, and our environment--we can make a major impact on our well-being, self-esteem, and choices. I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues at work and at home, work stresses and conflicts, coping with grief and loss, motivation, self-esteem, and big life changes. I also have experience in executive and professional coaching. I work with clients to create a safe and trusting environment. It takes courage to seek out a more fulfilling and happier life. I believe that we all have the power to heal, grow, and create new awareness and understanding. Talking to someone outside of our circle of friends and family and being asked some questions can create incredible insight that can lead to an overall improvement in well-being. I am here to support you and empower you on that journey.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a North Saint Paul counselor?

Before seeing your North Saint Paul 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 North Saint Paul.

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 North Saint Paul 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 North Saint Paul 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 North Saint Paul, 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.

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.
