Meet Joan Hause, MA, MFA, LPCC
Therapist, Clinical Director, Owner of Indigo Counseling Center
I specialize in helping people who have depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, life transition. I have specific skills and strategies I use to help people lower depression and anxiety. Some of these tools can involve thinking strategies, life movement, behavioral activation. Check out my blog on dealing with depression, "Fighting the Couch Vortex."
I also work with the LGBTQIA+ community. Indigo Counseling is a safe place for gender and sexuality issues. I have a specialty in working with transgender adults. I follow the WPATH guidelines and I can be a support through the transitioning process. Check out my blog piece, "Trans Ally." Additional specialties include lesbian, gay, gender queer, bisexuality, and gender fluid identities and more.
Additionally, I also love to work with "creatives" of all types--writers, artists, musicians, actors, website designers, programmers, graphic designers, gardeners, bakers, thinkers, spiritual questers, readers, poets, entrepreneurs, teachers, therapists, students, bloggers, learners. I help people to unlock creativity, overcome procrastination and find a work/creative life balance. Read my blog pieces, "How to be More Creative," and "Poetry Therapy," and "Minneapolis Therapist Asks: Do English Majors Suffer More Than Most?"
I am a counselor, writer, teacher and supervisor. I have two master's degrees--an MA in Counseling Psychology and the other is a MFA in Writing. I bring my writing and creative background to my work as a therapist. I do traditional "talk" therapy, and also for those who are interested I use creative techniques such as writing and art.
