Meet Gretchen Klefstad, MA, Therapist
My office is a safe space to express yourself, your worries, and your deepest thoughts. You will be met with respect and kindness. Together we will work to process emotions and life’s challenges in order to move forward with a clearer, more focused mind. I strive to help clients find a deeper understanding of themselves, their emotions, their purpose and meaning in life.
I work with individuals experiencing a variety of challenges including anxiety, depression, grief, substance abuse, and life transitions. After working with a variety of clients, I have a deeper understanding of the many systems influencing people on a daily basis. Everyone experiences life differently and I am here to listen to your story, explore connections, and support you through the many ups and downs.
I approach therapy in a holistic way incorporating mind, body, and spirit. There are many different ways of helping and together we can create a counseling experience that fits best for you. After spending time in India, I have been exploring the use of meditation, mindfulness activities, creative interventions, and physical activation in my practice. These tools and strategies can help lower depression and anxiety while cultivating a deeper understanding of one’s self. I am currently working towards licensure as a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC) in Minnesota, under the supervision of Joan Hause, MA, MFA, LPCC.
During graduate school, I came to understand what a gift it is to share a space with clients and witness the determination and resilience of humans. I am excited to continue this work with you.
