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.

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

M. Kelly English, MSW, LICSW, LADC

Kelly will be joining Shoreview Mental Health Center in March 2018!

I am dually licensed as a Clinical Social Worker and a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor. I have
extensive experience working with clients who struggle with addiction, their families and loved ones,
and those experiencing co-occurring mental health disorders.
 
I am a mindfulness based practitioner and use meditation and Eastern psychological principles that can be applied to life in practical everyday ways. Learning how to slow down and calm our body allows our minds to also begin to settle so we can gain clearer perspectives. Our rushed pace often contributes to us operating on auto-pilot, and perpetuates patterns that contribute to our life's difficulties.
 
Depression, anxiety, perfectionism, addiction, low self-esteem, grief, loss, aging, financial challenges, family relationships: all of these, and more, are part of the human experience. While we can’t change the things that happen to us in our lives, what we can change is the way we relate to our suffering and the ways in which we move forward.
 
I believe that having a strong therapeutic bond with one’s therapist provides an anchor of safety and security so that necessary healing work can be done. I would be honored to accompany you on your therapeutic journey.
