Embracing Our Shared Vision

 

Our Story

The catalyst for this team venture occurred nine years ago when we, Daniella, Katelyn, Megan, and Nikki, met while working at the same behavioral health agency. During our work together, we discovered we shared similar beliefs and philosophies about change, life and therapy. In 2015, we all set off on our own explorations of personal and professional growth. During that time, we continued to connect with one another as colleagues and as friends. In 2016, we decided to embrace our shared vision to create a space where our unique insights and skills could come together to benefit all individuals, couples and families.

Katelyn Lindstrom

Approach and Personal Philosophy for Therapy

As a system-based therapist I believe that individuals’ emotions and behaviors are best understood in the context of their interpersonal relationships, and that positive change can occur by supporting healthy development in those relationships. Individuals are each equipped with their own unique strengths and it is by highlighting and encouraging those strengths that they are able to thrive. My role in therapy is to support you in understanding your goals, learning skills to help you reach those goals, and addressing the barriers that may stand in your way through traditional talk therapy and other experiential exercises.

Approach and Personal Philosophy for Therapy

I am a systems-based therapist which means that I believe that we all are a part of multiple systems which provide context for our emotions and behaviors. When working with clients I look for patterns in their lives and relationships that are affecting their functioning and life satisfaction. I take a strengths-based approach which means enhancing what is working in a client’s life while making change in areas that are not. I use humor in therapy as I believe humor is crucial for healing. In the first few sessions I spend time getting to know the client, the client’s context in which they live, and what the client is wanting from therapy. After those first sessions I collaborate with the client on what goals they have for therapy and how we are going to work to achieve those goals.

 

Approach and Personal Philosophy for supervision

I am a systems-based supervisor and I use a developmental approach. I individualize my supervision to the developmental stage of supervisees to meet their needs. I utilize a supervision contract to guide the supervision process and believe in full transparency regarding my supervision process.
