Cris Roman, M.A., LMFT

Though I am marriage and family therapist, I also have great interest in working with individuals.  I am an Adlerian/Jungian therapist who takes a holistic, narrative approach and specializes in depression, trauma, and disruptive emotions. I have been trained in both Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and EMDR. Having personally practiced meditation for fifty years, I take joy in coaching others how to be mindful. I will work with clients to challenge what Adler termed “mistaken beliefs” when necessary. Recognizing that we all have our own unique life histories and stories, I pride myself on being non-judgmental and supportive.
 
After years in the world of mass media, from writing to publishing to lecturing to satellite communications, I wanted to engage in the most individual, empathetic way possible and I have been passionately pursuing this second vocation for over a decade. I've spent many years working with adolescents, adults, groups, and also spent three years on the Minneapolis streets with the homeless. I've also lived in many different cities over the years, such as Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Denver, and even Tokyo. Given my broad background, I believe that I may bring a lifetime of experience and a certain degree of wisdom to our therapeutic work

I bring humor, positive energy, joy, and empathy to my practice. My goal is for clients to feel comfortable and understood, to help them see their potential and make strides to become the best version of themselves. I enjoy working with individuals of all ages (5 and up), couples, families, and groups. My practice has included in-home crisis counseling, therapy for in- and out-patient treatment facilities, as well as working with clients within the correctional system (youth and adult).

Originally from the East Coast, I am Puerto Rican and fluent in Spanish; I’m proud to offer bilingual services for our Spanish-speaking clients. I identify with being a mother, a Christian, a woman of color, and an animal lover, though I have extensive experience with clients of all backgrounds and struggles. I enjoy working with a wide variety of clients, using a variety of therapeutic approaches. I specialize in working with clients with trauma, codependency, those feeling “stuck” in relationships, and those wishing to break disruptive patterns in their lives. My additional training in EMDR, DBT, CBT, TF-CBT, Imago, and psychodynamic theory allows me to offer additional therapeutic options to these clients.

Kaleigh Frey, M.Ed., LPCC, NCC

I bring passion and motivation to my work with clients. I strongly believe that healthy relationships heal and because of that I focus on building strong, collaborative relationships with my clients.

I enjoy working with clients with varied struggles and concerns. My areas of focus include anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, addictions, specifically gambling addiction, bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and identity development. I have also enjoyed working with college students, or adults ages 18-23, and helping them navigate what can be a particularly difficult time in their life.

I employ mindfulness and yoga techniques in my practice as a therapist as well as in my personal life. I also enjoy listening to podcasts, cross-stitching, and spending time with my cat, Charles. I grew up in Northern Minnesota and am always grateful when I can go back and enjoy the lakes, trees, and nature.

Ann O’Fallon, M.A., LP       

I have lived a full life and had all kinds of experiences. I have learned the value of letting go of habits that harm me and developing perspectives that open me to love and hope. I greatly enjoy working in partnership with others who are going through difficult and challenging times. I believe that by working together toward your desired goals, lasting change can be realized.

My experience has brought me expertise in many areas including grief and loss, parenting, aging, anxiety, depression, professional challenges and interpersonal conflicts. I am a good listener, hold much compassion and have a sense of humor about life. I will work with you to peel away thoughts and actions that contribute to your dissatisfaction with life, and support your core beliefs to be a better you.
