Hi, I’m Karley! 

I offer individual mental health therapy to children (6+), teens, and adults as well as chemical health assessments and therapy. I strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their feelings and use a collaborative approach to healing and wellness.

I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches but specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). My approach is grounded in evidence-based practices that are designed to help clients identify negative thought patterns and behaviors that may be contributing to their difficulties. Through CBT, I help clients challenge and reframe these thoughts, leading to more positive behaviors and improved emotional wellbeing.

When working with children I believe in the importance of partnering with parents to provide the most support for the child. Increasing emotion identification and self-regulation skills through games and activities in session and then allowing the child to bring that information to their adult as the expert to help incorporate new skills into the family system.

When working with adolescents, patience is key to developing trust in the therapeutic process. Navigating social situations and family dynamics can be difficult and I can be an additional support for your teen while they are growing into their own individual.

When working with adults, I utilize a client centered approach, which means I value collaboration and believe in working with you to help you get what you want out of therapy. Analyzing patterns and creating goals to better manage anxiety and depression while creating space to process life’s stressors such as addiction, family systems, parenting, and so on.

I completed my master’s degree in Counseling and Psychological Services and Addiction Studies through St. Mary’s University of Minnesota in Spring of 2023. I started my clinical practicum experience at Maple Grove Therapy and Wellness in September 2022 and have stayed on as a full-time clinician after my graduation.

Please reach out if you would like to set up a free consultation to see if I would be a good fit for you or your child.
