Sunrise Wellness

Even in our darkest of days, the sun will rise.

Sunrise Wellness is a growing leader in trauma work, specializing in work with police, other first responders and families to address trauma and stress.  Therapeutic interventions include, but are not limited to EMDR, TF-CBT, Brain-Spotting, TF-EFT, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Strengths Based, the Gottman Method, Prepare/Enrich, IFS and more. We provide Individual Therapy, Couples Therapy, Marriage Therapy and Family Therapy for adolescents (age 16 and up) through adults. Sunrise Wellness therapist’s range from interns, to pre-licensed professionals to licensed therapists (LMFT and LPCC).  We utilize an integrated whole person approach to developing, managing and providing mental health services. It’s important to look at a person’s strengths and to incorporate coping tools that touch on physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects. Our clinicians either have training to work with Police Officers and other first responders, have an understanding of the additional dynamics that are a part of that unique community or are serving/have served in Law Enforcement.

Sunrise Wellness has a passion in working with all people who have experienced high levels of stress or trauma and loss in their lives. We connect with clients to help them believe in their ability to facilitate personal change. Additionally, we are passionate about family systems, life changes, marriage and pre-marital counseling and general mental health.  We provide skills to manage daily stressors and life changes as well as ways to cope with anxiety and depression and other common mental health conditions. Therapists in the office all actively practice Yoga and bring concepts from Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation actively into the therapy sessions.

Making the decision to set up therapy services is a very big step, so we strive to provide a safe and non-judgmental approach from your first phone call and during all therapy sessions. Sunrise Wellness looks forward to working with you.


We see clients both in person and through Teletherapy.

Kyle Severson
Kyle SeversonTherapist, Intern
I have knowledge and passion for helping first responders through the unique challenges they face and stigmas associated with seeking assistance. I was a police officer in Minneapolis from 1998 until 2021 before beginning a second career as a counselor. Clients deserve the autonomy to make decisions and find solutions to build resiliency in their future. Some therapeutic interventions I use include cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and motivational interviewing. I am working under the licensed supervision of Andrea Hendel, MA, LMFT.
