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.

Michelle Jones, MSW, LICSW, LADC
I am a licensed clinical social worker who uses counseling and therapy to help individuals change how they perceive the world and start to change certain patterns of behavior. I am very passionate about my work and I enjoy helping clients transition from contemplation to action and change. My areas of interest include addictions and co-occurring mental health disorders. I believe that the first step to recovery is seeking help and I have personally experienced pain and heartache due to addiction and other mental health difficulties. My therapy style could be described as eclectic, combining motivational interviewing with other approaches to meet clients where they are.

Kaleigh Frey, M.Ed., LPC, 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.
