Andrea Hendel, MA, LMFT

Therapist and Owner

I have been a therapist for over 20 years.  I specialize in trauma treatment and am Certified in EMDR Therapy and  Cognitive Behavior Therapy.  I have advanced training with Law Enforcement, First Responders and their families to address daily stress and work related trauma.  I am an EMDR Consultant and have specialized training with substance abuse and eating disorders.  As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I provide Individual Therapy and Couples Therapy and am trained in both Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Prepare/Enrich. I have worked in residential and correctional treatment centers for a large part of that as a therapist, manager and program director.

Karen Hutchins, MS, LPCC

Therapist

As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I provide individual therapy to adults, age 18 and older. I have experience working with depression, abuse, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, stress management, and adjustment to life changes.

My approach to therapy draws from several different models, in order to tailor treatment to your needs.  I offer EMDR therapy to address traumatic experiences and struggles with negative beliefs. Other therapeutic interventions include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, assertiveness training, mood management, anxiety reduction, and incorporation of meditation and mind/body connection.  As someone who has experienced the benefits of practicing yoga and meditation in my personal life, I value holistic treatment.

Erin Holznagel

Therapist Intern

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.
