Theressa Duren, MA, LAMFT, Pre-Licensed Professional in Saint Paul
I bring an authentic, compassionate, straightforward, and collaborative approach to my work with clients. I believe in the power of genuine connection as a strong motivator for change. It is crucial to provide a trusting and supportive environment, in which clients feel comfortable and cared for no matter the circumstances. I believe offering encouragement, education and supportive guidance are all critical elements of the therapy process. I know firsthand how essential encouragement is to facilitating change! I possess the ability to listen without judgment or blame, and I work hard to create a warm and welcoming environment centered on affirming the needs of my clients.
I specialize in working with couples and provide support for a range of martial stages from pre-marital counseling to navigating the process of divorce. I also enjoy working with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, and ADHD, and anyone going through transition or simply needing additional resources and support.
I feel privileged and honored to be allowed inside the lives of so many diverse individuals through my work as a therapist. I feel it is a distinct honor to help others navigate through difficult circumstances, relationships, emotions, and create authentic connections with all my clients.
