Our Services

In our work with older adolescents and adult clients, we practice psychodynamic psychotherapy. This approach to therapy promotes healthy development and the capacity to free yourself from unsatisfying or painful patterns of living.  It emphasizes developing your capacity to be in relationships in a life-giving way.  You will do this by telling your story to your therapist and working in close collaboration with your therapist to make meaning of your story and create possibilities for change.  Special attention will be paid to the way that your past relationships are shaping present relationships, to body and mind, and to dreams and fantasies as well as conscious experience.  Together with your therapist, you will work to alleviate personal suffering and to expand your capacity for work, love and creativity.

Groups: We offer a weekly psychotherapy group focused on helping group members learn how to have deeper and more satisfying relationships. Participating in a psychotherapy group can be a safe and transformative way to learn about how others experience you, to understand the protective habits that may be getting in the way of your innate capacity for closeness and intimacy, and to practice reaching out to people in a genuine, courageous way.  To learn more, visit our Group page.


Workshops: Throughout the year, we offer 1-day workshops on topics including couples communication, yoga for grief, and stress-relief.  Stay tuned for more information!

In addition to our work with older adolescents and adults, we work with children and young adolescents (ages 5-12 years old). Parents often seek therapy for their children who are experiencing change in their families (i.e. divorce, re-marriage or a blended family), or who have received diagnoses such as Asperger’s Disorder, ADHD, depression or anxiety.  We also work with adolescents in high school and college struggling with identity issues or with various mental health diagnoses.  Play therapy, motivational interviewing and a psychodynamic perspective guide our work with children, adolescents and parents.  Contact us for a consultation to see if our services might be a good fit for your child.

If you have questions about any of our services, don’t hesitate to call us at 612-326-6686.  We would be glad to talk with you!

Couples Psychotherapy

There are few relationships as powerful and, at times, as challenging as our relationships with our partners.  Couples therapy can help you to build and strengthen your foundation as a couple, and can help you cultivate a more satisfying partnership.  Common themes you might address in couples therapy include improving communication, increased sexual satisfaction, navigating relationships with in-laws and children, and the role of money in your relationship.  The idea of couples therapy can seem intimidating and as a result, couples often wait until they are in crisis to seek help.  While therapy can be helpful at any time, there is often a more immediate potential for safety and growth when you begin this kind of therapy while things are relatively good and stable.
