Beth Neu

Therapist, Intern

Using a strengths-based approach, I am passionate about working with people of all ages who want to get past whatever is getting in the way of living the life they want. From adults who are managing a sense of overwhelm, depression or anxiety, to teens who are seeking connection, I am skilled at creating a warm and safe space for healing and growth. Using humor and creativity, we work to find a way forward, together. Regardless of what has you seeking support, I offer a non-judgmental and caring place to share what’s on your heart.
I creatively help adults, adolescents, couples, and families increase the skills they have to cope with a variety of life stressors, unexpected and daily. I’m trained in multiple modalities, including EMDR, that addresses anxiety, depression and the effects of trauma. I have experience working with difficult life transitions, PTSD, and complex trauma.
We truly are unique as human beings and so are our responses to stress and trauma. I’m committed to helping you look at your strengths first, as a way to approach challenges, through a lens that is both hopeful and empowered. Together, we will bring curiosity and compassion to our work together, using therapy techniques that feel safe for you.

Erin Holznagel,  MA

Therapist

Prior to practicing therapy, Erin was a licensed police officer in Minnesota for over 12 years and recognizes that the unique experiences of public safety personnel require a highly individualized approach to therapy. Erin’s desire to help others create meaning out of loss, provide avenues of hope, and a space to heal, ultimately led to her transition from law enforcement to her work as a therapist.

Erin believes we are all influenced by the systems we are a part, including our families, our work, our schools, our relationships, and our communities. Our experiences and whether our beliefs or values are challenged or supported often impact every aspect of our lives. Erin offers a neutral, nonjudgmental atmosphere and utilizes trauma informed care practices and evidence-based treatment options to reach your goals and improve your overall well-being.

Erin recognizes that each story is unique and understands it is not always easy to talk about problems that exist. When it becomes too difficult to share your story out-loud, Erin is trained in Brainspotting which is a non-verbal treatment option that works to identify and release those primary sources of emotional and physical pain, trauma, and a variety of other challenging symptoms. Erin believes that trauma does not need to end in tragedy and utilizes a Post Traumatic Growth approach in her practice. This approach recognizes that significant life events and adverse experiences can result in negative life outcomes but can also be a catalyst to positive growth afterward.

Erin is passionate about working with individuals to identify their needs’, resources and the flexibility needed for lasting growth and change.

Michelle Rosenau, LPCC

Therapist

I believe that there are points in everyone’s life where we become “stuck” or dissatisfied with parts of our lives, whether that be due to external circumstances or an internal struggle within ourselves. During those times it can be very difficult to see ourselves as resilient, strong and capable of meeting the demands of our lives. My goal is to walk beside you, providing support and the skills to address your needs, so that you can determine how to move forward in a way that feels good to you. I strive to provide a supportive therapeutic relationship where you can truly feel comfortable to come as your are. If you are considering therapy, I invite you to reach out.

Laura Sosalla, MA

Psychotherapist, EMDR trained

I specialize in working with military, law enforcement, first responders, emergency medicine ~ and the unique challenges you and your loved ones face. Prior to becoming a trauma therapist I spent years working closely with probation and parole, CPS, LEOs, nurses, and doctors. At some point along the way I started asking myself, “Who is watching out for those who help, protect, and serve?” This question led me to shift focus towards working with the people I used to work alongside.

I work from the foundation of neuroscience that painful thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviors are NOT indicators of mental illness, weakness, being broken, or a failure. But, in fact, are natural and normal human responses to ongoing exposure to high stress or high risk situations, traumatic events, unresolved grief or loss, experiences of betrayal and broken trust, overwhelming adversities, or from harmful relationships. Similar to healing from complex physical injuries ~ It also takes time, patience, and hard work to heal and grow from the impacts of complex trauma.

What does this mean for you? My style is laid back, collaborative, and educational (yes, you’ll get homework). I’m always up for laughing at ourselves and each other. But we’ll also focus on the solutions necessary to manage the pain from these “injuries of experience” while we do the hard work to heal from the inside out, to personally grow, and create lasting change, Similar to healing from complex physical trauma – It also takes time, patience, and hard work to heal and grow from the impacts of the experiences we live through, endure, and overcome.
