I am a LGBTQIA + affirming provider, and enjoy working with queer , trans and gender creative clients.
I believe therapy can be a space to try on new ways of thinking and being, building insight and self-awareness so you can overcome blocks to creating the life you deeply desire. You can expect me to work hard to understand you and your history, offering an equal mix of nurturing, education and clear sighted perspective. We’ll work together to chart a vision for the road ahead, noting areas for growth, needed skills, and current strengths and resources. In session, and in life, my style is informal, warm, playful and compassionate. I bring a body-positive, sex-positive, feminist and anti-oppressive lens to my work.

I have a history of working with the LGBTQIA + community, people with addiction, aging adults, people seeking sex specific therapy, couples, families, and individuals with a variety of mental health needs.
Adulting is hard, life can be difficult, and the whole thing can be overwhelming. Let's talk about it, let's yell at it, or meditate on it. All of the systems that we are a part of can impact the way we think about ourselves and our ability to connect with others. This can severely impact our mental health and our ability to heal. I am here to help you manage issues related to sexuality, severe and persistent mental illness, sense of self, trauma, loss, and life transitions. Please go to the website link to enter your information if you would like to move forward with sessions.

I value body, sex, and weight positivity, Queer celebration, and am welcoming of kink and poly/non-monogamous relationships.
Making change and asking for help can be one of the hardest things to do. I’m Jenna (She/Her), and my work focuses on building connection and holding a safe space for clients to feel the full range of their experiences. Finding comfort in the uncomfortable, we can change old patterns that don’t serve us anymore, communicate our needs, and cultivate social justice and joy. I am here to celebrate and support your unique passions, and to learn from you what matters most in your life. I work with clients to build resilience and self-esteem, reduce stress, heal from trauma, and achieve greater self-awareness.

I'm Auden O’Connell (she/her) and I’m a therapist, EMDR trained, board certified and registered art therapist. I use a blend of art and traditional talk therapy-sometimes this means a session is all art based, or depending on what the client needs-we might just talk! Collaboration, play, humor, and creativity are all central to my therapeutic process with my clients. I am enthusiastic about creatively collaborating with my clients. My practice is guided through a feminist and body neutral lens. I'm LGBTQIA + ally. I believe that the client is the expert and I am a guide to assist in the client's journey.

I have particular interest in working with LGBTQIA + individuals and supporting clients in developing a sense of confidence in themselves.
I believe that building an authentic relationship with each client is one of the first steps in moving towards peace, hope, and healing. As we seek to understand ourselves and the patterns of distress, conflict, or confusion we fall into, making time to explore our strengths and connections is an important step in building a foundation for positive change. I value meeting each individual, couple, or family where they are at on their journey of healing and working together in developing understanding, confidence, and resilience.

I'm an Italian-/Irish-American, cis-, queer , always-aspiring-to-be-justice-doing, tarot-card-pulling art witch and half-assed-Buddhist who also happens to be a therapist. A professional artist, teacher and mentor of artists for almost twenty years before becoming a therapist, I offer my full authentic self (this may involve some swearing). I am a solidarity worker. This is transformative change work that values your inherent wisdom and lived experience. My work is truly affirming, rooted in the idea that unconditional love for ourselves, when combined with our innate creativity and knowing, is the strongest healing power we have.

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Healthy relationships come in many forms and it's your right to come to therapy without a side of judgment and misunderstanding. I am sex positive and work from a sex positive theoretical background. My sessions should be your safe place to feel connected and grow individually or with partners. I have a special focus on those recovering from religious trauma and/or purity culture narratives. Additionally, I offer community education on various topics of sexuality. Please note that I do not accept insurance as a form of payment.

Who doesn't want freedom in all aspects of life? I believe that true freedom comes from transformation of self from the inside out. We are not on this planet to struggle, rather to find the courage to let our light shine. If you are feeling stuck in your relationships, career, family, or any other aspect of life perhaps it is time for a change. Life is short.

I believe that self-exploration with a compassionate, non-judgmental presence is a powerful experience which results in deep, lasting change. Often times, our experience of the world and ourselves can feel vaguely yet urgently unsatisfying. Sometimes we unconsciously live in a reality which no longer feels like it "fits", but we know therapy is about being empowered to see yourself and the world in new, exciting ways. You don't have to feel stuck in how you experience life. We can work together to experience life more fully. (For efficient scheduling purposes, please email rather than call)

Note: I do not have immediate openings and my anticipated wait is 4-6 months. The world may be telling you that you are not enough, that you need to change in order to fit in. Sometimes that pressure to fit neatly into a particular box is more than you feel you can overcome on your own. That is where therapy can help. My practice is greatly informed by Anna Quindlen's quote: "The thing that is really hard and really amazing is giving up on being perfect and beginning the work of becoming yourself". You do not need to change to meet the world's expectations, you are already perfect as you are and I want to help you believe that.

What type of Northeast, Minneapolis mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Northeast, Minneapolis?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
