About Me

Hi, my name is Willa and I am a Professional Clinical Counselor, licensed in Minnesota, and Nationally Certified, with more than fifteen years working as a counselor and life coach. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including teens dealing with family conflict, depression, anxiety, ADHD, anger, relationship issues, and substance abuse issues. I also helped many adults and adolescents who have experienced physical trauma, sexual abuse or emotional abuse.
My counseling style is warm and interactive and solution-focused, meeting you where you are at in your personal life. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused Acceptance and Commitment, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Mindfulness. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Willa is amazing! She is a fantastic listener, but also provides impactful advice and feedback. She helped me learn how to set healthy boundaries and gain self respect.

Good at what she does. Her timing is what's impressing me. She seems to understand it the way I do.

I appreciated Willa always checking in on me. She encourages me to tell my story and guides me in the direction I need to go. I have even discontinued my antidepressant but come winter I may need it again. Seems to be the pattern. Thanks Willa

Willa has been a JOY to work with. She is kind, straightforward, joyful, patient, and so wise. I felt so heard, valued and seen throughout each session. With her help, I have been able to confront issues I had stuffed down for quite some time & now feel so much peace and freedom in those areas. In addition, I feel a confidence to be who God created me to be, a boldness to assert my desires and needs, and a strength in my own decision making abilities. She is amazing!
