The craft of psychotherapy is part science and part artistry. I am informed by current research and also my extensive clinical experience (35 years) to build a solid therapeutic relationship with you. Once this occurs the trust will exist to allow us to create unique solutions your concerns. I take a cognitive behavioral approach, but find it helpful at times to explore your past as a way to help get "unstuck". I help clients to learn to better deal with emotions, to be assertive and to build self-confidence to feel better. I work with a wide variety of problems - see my web page for more details. My therapeutic style is engaging, warm, sometimes humorous and down to earth.

Psychotherapy is all about the art and the science of change. In my role as a psychotherapist my role is to gently discover the problems that people come to me for, what they have done to change those problems and what they would like to see happen. I then help them understand the nature of their problems from the standpoint of their thinking, emotions and behavior. I teach people about the neurophysiology of the brain and how that relates to change. Through the use of illustrations, handouts, and metaphors I help them to see that the change they want is possible for them. I give them specific step-by-step directions about how to effect this change and encourage and coach along every step.

Often people enter therapy feeling "stuck" in some area of their life - they have tried everything they can think of and still the feeling or situation persists. It shows great determination, resilience, and wisdom that you are reaching out to a professional at this point. Together we can work to understand how this situation came about, uncover what your real wants and needs are, and realistically consider what your options are for moving forward. If you are taking the initiative to look into therapy, then I am endlessly optimistic about your ability to make the changes you'd like to see.

In 55345 - Nearby to Excelsior.

If you’re looking for someone who nods and smiles and leaves you feeling oddly confused about what you’re accomplishing in therapy, I’m the wrong person for you. Any trained professional should be able to offer you ‘a safe, compassionate space’ to talk about your feelings. But if you want to see real change in your life, you need to do something different. My approach is goal-oriented. I want to help you clarify and achieve your goals. Once we figure out what you’re struggling with, we’ll come up with an action plan, with weekly assignments designed to get you unstuck, and heading in a healthier direction.

Sometimes you just need to be heard so that you can figure things out without all the chaos going on in your life. I'll help you to define exactly what you're frustrated with and then we'll talk about what you can change, how you can be more forgiving toward yourself or others, and where you can start. I won't always agree with you, but I'll be honest about where you have power to change and respectful of your ability to make decisions for yourself.

The goal of my psychotherapy practice is to create a safe place for clients to learn how to change patterns that no longer work for them. I see each of my clients as uniquely molded by past and present influences, and I endeavor to understand the impact these influences have on my clients' lives. I use an approach of curiosity and compassion to help my clients better understand themselves, and gain self-acceptance. I accept my clients for where they are at, and I commit to helping clients get to where (and who and what) they want to be.

A respectful, collaborative, optimistic and holistic approach is used. People are best understood based on how they relate to others. This is rooted in the patterns learned in their most significant relationship experiences – usually their relationship with their parents. So your family history is very important. Since reality and meaning are created by you, what you think about your problem and yourself is very important. It is also significant what is happening for you in the present moment, in the therapy room and in the therapeutic relationship. Your problems will be undermined by looking at some of your beliefs about yourself, the world and how you might be unknowingly perpetuating the

There are many approaches to psychotherapy. As a PhD psychologist and marriage–family therapist for over 28 years my approach has been highly influenced by the executive coaching and consulting work I've done in the business world where there is a high demand for results. Many clients have given feedback that I'm much more active and involved compared to therapists they've seen in the past, and they appreciate this rather than just sitting back and listening without much comment. I have a very strong desire and commitment to help every client that I see make major changes in their life leading to greater fulfillment and happiness—this is what I strive for with every individual!

Research supports that people change through the therapeutic relationship. Regardless of techniques or training, the most important variable is the relationship between therapist and client. It is a place where, with a good therapist, clients can say whatever they want without being judged. There are few places in life where people can experience that. When we have started to talk about the problem, we are already starting to change.

Why am I the way that I am? Why do I feel stuck struggling with the same problems? Can I overcome my tendencies? Will I ever understand what makes me tick and why I act the way that I do?

You or a loved one may have struggled with substance abuse. You may be successful in many areas of your life, while feeling stuck in certain patterns that you would like to change.

Within my private practice, I offer individual adult psychotherapy. My approach while working with you is to see you as a unique individual. Developing a therapeutic relationship that can assist you in coming to know, learn and understand your internal world. Our internal world is made up of conscious and unconscious thoughts, feelings, fears and anxieties that do impact our external choices. My treatment approach is to help you open up more awareness of yourself internally to be able to grow more skills to care for yourself in different ways. I believe we develop symptoms when our internal selves feel stuck and unable to grow. Therapy is about fostering growth.

In 55408 - Nearby to Excelsior.

I'll help you explore what's getting in the way of living the life you want, and support you as you start experiencing more of what's important to you. You'll gain insight into your personal challenges and learn useful tools for managing yourself, your relationships and your problems. My philosophy is that our past experiences and the ways we've learned to deal with stress and relationships often leave us unprepared to cope with current issues. We tend to rely on old habits to solve problems and end up feeling frustrated or disappointed. With support, you'll discover your capacity to feel more comfortable with yourself and share that with others.

Mental Health Counselor

Therapy with me is less about starting with behavioral change (which will emerge as you become ready for it) and more about self-discovery, healing deep wounds, and finding a path to living more authentically. I can be a guide, a witness, and a partner in your journey through the world. My training is in existential-phenomenological psychology, which is focused on body-mind integration, the importance of relationship, the stories you tell yourself, and building agency. It is similar to narrative and attachment work. Our work together will be driven by what you bring to sessions and your needs at any given point and is a freeform rather than structured one.

Therapy Affordability Meter for Excelsior, MN

Some budgeting needed

While counseling can certainly be an expense for individuals and families in Excelsior, with proper budgeting, it is entirely do-able and the risk/reward is worth it. For some families, it may be difficult to sustain a commitment to therapy without proper insurance coverage. If this is you, ask your therapist about low cost options as practitoners in and around Excelsior may have flexibility or sliding scales. Low cost counseling and affordable therapy are also sometimes offered by listed city and university level clinics, check with your local Excelsior public health department.
