Mary A Palmer, LICSW, LMFT, TEP, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Eagan
During my forty years in the field I am continually amazed at the power of human connection. My goal as a psychotherapist is to enable each individual that I work with to experience their most empowered, real and authentic self in the here and now. This experience in therapy includes concentrating on strengths that we all have yet in our darkest times fade from our awareness. My commitment to my clients is to have available as many options as possible so no matter what the presenting issue, I will have the skills needed.
I will bring to my work with clients my post-graduate training in Family Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Neurolinguistic Programming, Hypnosis, DBT, EMDR, Transactional Analysis, and a certification as a Practitioner/Trainer in Psychodrama, Sociometry, and Group Psychotherapy.
The clinic within which I work has available many adjunctive healing methods including acupuncture, chiropractic, and body work/massage. Practitioners work closely together to bring about amazing results. I also am trained in MN couple communication and provide a reflective relationship tool called THRIVE.
