Kathleen is a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. She is a fully trained Wellness Coach, Certified Parent Coach and Certified EMDR Therapist. As a couples’ counselor, she offers skills and knowledge based on extensive training with Terry Real, Susan Johnson, and Willard Harley. In addition, she is a State Approved Supervisor for the Minnesota Board of Behavioral Health and Therapy and the Minnesota Board of Marriage and Family Therapy.
As a therapist, Kathleen enjoys working with clients from adolescents to seniors who are seeking help with anxiety, depression, family relationships, transitions, personal health issues or stress. When painful memories or "stuck" feelings like shame or anger are getting in the way, she often focuses on trauma work with her clients. EMDR, tapping, and mindfulness all help to clear those darker past experiences or unexplained feelings.
As a Wellness Coach, Kathleen can help you establish goals for better health or personal growth and work toward them. In this role, she teaches clients the basics of self motivation and helps to hold them accountable for planning and following through on the changes they want to make. She can help clients explore current lifestyle choices that will reduce the friction in their efforts to reach their goals. For example, she may explore with you how adjusting your home or work environment or your personal routines may make change feel easier and more fun.
Kathleen enjoys her blended family, being outdoors, movies and plays. She still hopes to learn how to fish and how to play the piano.
