Alexa Tennyson, MA, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

Psychotherapy can include individual therapy, couples therapy, or family therapy and address a variety of issues such as depression, addiction, relationship issues, or anxiety. Depending on what you are looking for in therapy, we will work together to come up with a customized treatment plan for your individual situation and your goals. I have trained in a variety of treatment methods, but find that I most commonly use mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, and family systems in my work. We will explore your family history, how you grew up, and important relationships. We will also help you to develop coping strategies that use mindfulness, relaxation, and behavioral changes.

I look at therapy as building a proverbial toolbox. The tools that fill this toolbox are coping skills. Some things we try will work for you while other coping skills won't. We work together to figure out what will work best for you. You will find that psychotherapy with me addresses your primary concern, not mine! I work with you to identify goals and we work to achieve those goals.

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.

Not everyone who attends therapy is suffering from major depression or anxiety disorders. Sometimes we all need a space to process our feelings and experiences in order to grow and become better versions of ourselves. One of my favorite things as a therapist is to walk with someone who has great awareness and insight, while also wants to become healthier and grow into a better version of himself/herself. I truly believe that therapy can be beneficial for everyone because the process of being vulnerable, open, and connecting with another human brings about knowledge, growth, and satisfaction!

Meridee Rilen, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

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.

Psychotherapy can be an intimidating word to describe the process of working on your emotional well-being. I try to take the intimidation and mystery out of the counseling process with a straightforward, yet kind approach, whether I am working with individuals, couples, or families. The biggest predictor of success in therapy is the connection with the therapist. No one can be a good fit for everyone. Consider your first visit to be an audition for the therapist to see if it feels right for you. I have extensive experience working on issues of anxiety, depression, life transitions, sex and porn addictions, and trauma, to name a few. I do in-office and online counseling.

Psychotherapist

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

As a collaborative therapist I view you as the expert on your life. I am your guide through the process of growth and not your leader. Through a systemic approach we will look at how relational contexts influence our construct of the world. This includes all aspects of life including influences from family, community, and society. We do not look at a mental health diagnosis as the only answer. Instead we attempt to stay away from the label a mental health diagnosis may create. Each individual experience in therapy is a unique journey based on your own particular needs.

Chad Allen, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

I believe that the difficulties we encounter in our lives develop in relationship and get healed in relationship. Because of the nature of the therapeutic situation and the relationship you form with your therapist, psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to explore the ways in which you may repeat frustrating or painful experiences in your life, to relieve suffering and grow your capacity to tolerate unpleasurable (as well as pleasurable) feelings, and to experience yourself in a new way.

Psychotherapist

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

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!

Therapy can help with a number of different issues. We offer a systemic approach to understanding problems. In other words, what is happening in your relationships, home, school, or community that is impacting your mental health? In addition, how is what you are dealing with affecting the relationships you have? In discovering this, we can move forward with how to manage feelings of anxiety, depression, stress, or other mental health issues.

Anna Grimm, LMFT, EAGALA Certfied

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

I work with individuals, couples, families and groups as they seek to overcome obstacles in their life and/or better understand themselves. I believe in our ability to heal, and will approach our work together from a solution oriented approach and one in which we work together as a team to both develop your treatment goals and meet them. In addition to the more traditional approach, I also use several creative methods in the journey to meet your goals - such as the use of photography, art or immersion in nature. I am also certified by EAGALA to practice Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Learning, and find horses incredibly gifted at helping humans find healing.

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

Psychotherapy is a very general term that refers to the process of a trained professional helping an individual, couple, or family sort through their feelings, thoughts, and relationships. I have been providing psychotherapy for over 10 years, using a very practical, problem-solving, strengths-based approach. Often this involves the use of hypnosis, but not necessarily. I like to identify up-front with my clients the goals they are looking to achieve, so that we can assess together over time how well we're doing at reaching them. We adjust the process along the way to help them get the maximum benefit out of their sessions with me.

Psychotherapist

JoAnna Smith, MA, LMFT

Therapist/Life Coach

Within driving distance of South St. Paul

I adopt a holistic approach to therapy. I view you as an integrated whole--a person with unique goals, hopes, and fears. I do not endorse a 'one size fits all' approach; thus, my services are tailored to your specific needs. I offer strength based and solution focused services. Thus, I emphasize your existing skills, help identify your areas of growth, and offer you specific strategies to promote your personal growth. Our work together challenges unhelpful thinking patterns and self-defeating behaviors, increases self-empowerment, promotes physical health and emotional well-being, and creates the space for your hopes to materialize.
