A client who comes to me with honesty, is willing to work towards their goals is an ideal client. Anxiety, trauma, depression and family problems are problems that I treat with skill and sensitivity. Parents who need help parenting, children who suffer from a trauma, teens who are depressed and stressed out, couples who can't figure out why they are fighting so much when they really love each other, wives who struggle with low self esteem, people of any age who are very lonely, all need someone to help them sort out their challenges. "We are all just trying to do life!" That often that means asking for help.

I once read a story about a sea lion that somehow ended up in a barren desert. It was dry and parched and the closest thing resembling the sea was a mud puddle. He was sad and lost and knew he didn't belong, but he had been there so long and knew of nothing else, so he considered it "home". Too often, we find ourselves like this sea lion, living an unfulfilling existence, or in surroundings that aren't consistent with who we are. We passively accept our lot in life or sabotage efforts to live with passion and joy.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Excelsior, MN provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Excelsior build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
