All About You Recovery Counseling Services

Recovery Counseling can help you learn the skills you need to develop, navigate and maintain, a strong program of recovery that is based on your strengths, wants, needs beliefs, and preferences. Recovery is a lifelong journey that can bring many challenges along the way. Recovery Counseling can teach you how to maximize the joy and minimize the struggles along the way. I can help you identify your triggers and stuck points in each stage of recovery and develop plans to successfully work through them.

I believe that recovery services should be developed using a person centered approach, and I believe that it is my job to tailor my services to you. I will help you identify your concerns, issues and struggles related to your substance use and how it has impacted your life. Then I will help you to use the information to set recovery goals that are consistent with your wants, needs, believes and preferences, which will assist you in achieving the life that you have hoped for and  dreamed of. Finally, I will help you develop and maintain your own individualized recovery program.

As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor, I will use my educational and professional expertise to help you map out your long term recovery goals and help you explore and resolve any difficulties you may encounter along the way.  I offer a safe, comfortable  and supportive environment to help you feel as much at ease as possible, even when talking about difficult issues.

Back to College

Going back to college as an adult can be a daunting (sometimes even scary), but very worthwhile experience. We all know that there are many talented and accomplished individuals who never went to college or for some reason or another were not able to complete their degree. For many, earning that “piece of paper” can make a significant difference in their professional or personal life (the achievement of a lifelong dream) – but the idea of returning to school after a long absence can present quite a challenge.

Often adults who are returning to school after years of not being in a classroom are apprehensive about not fitting in (for example, being thrust into a classroom with 18 to 25 year olds), taking good notes, studying, and doing well on tests. The admissions and financial aid process can be a confusing and frustrating experience. Back to College® offers a directory of resources and interactive community specifically designed to help manage these challenges, including an Ask the Experts and online discussion forum.


Birch Counseling

Our mission at Birch Counseling is to promote the growth and development of our clients.  Life can be hard, and everyone gets stuck from time to time.  We offer a safe and compassionate environment, in which confidential matters can be discussed and explored.  Counseling can be helpful if you:

  • Feel sad and unmotivated much of the time
  • Spend a lot of time worrying
  • Get nervous in situations where others seem to be at ease
  • Are concerned about your use of alcohol or drugs
  • Can’t stop gambling or shopping
  • Spend a lot of time thinking about food, or feel you have lost control over eating
  • Are concerned about a family member
  • Would like to get along better with partner
  • Are uncertain about whether you should save or leave a relationship
  • Have been abused sexually, emotionally or physically
  • Need to process a concern that you feel needs professional guidance

The goal of Birch Counseling is to gain a thorough understanding of the problems you bring to us.  We listen without judgment, and help you look at problems from a multitude of perspectives.  We help you to “see different” and develop the skills you need to outgrow your problems.

Changing Gaits, Inc

EQUINE THERAPY

We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) & Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL)

Equine-assisted work honors the natural behavior of horses and herds. Horses are skilled at keeping themselves safe and are adept at survival. Their natural behaviors are optimal for mental and physical health. In many respects, we as humans have lost the instinct to keep ourselves safe and healthy. We entrust horses to show us the way back to health. Work and observation in the horse world lends itself to extremely powerful metaphors into our own patterns, strengths, and nonverbal messages we send out.

Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) implements the power of equine-assisted philosophies and exercises to introduce therapy clients to themselves in a morality that has been found to be more efficient and less threatening than traditional talk therapy.

Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) is a field of practice based on the successes of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP). We have learned that everyone can benefit from equine-assisted work – not just therapy clients. Equine-Assisted Learning (EAL) uses equine-assisted philosophies and exercises in a variety of arenas including parenting and family dynamics, personal coaching, church groups, corporate retreats, and more.

EAP and EAL can help with emotional and behavioral issues, anger management, marriage and relationship issues, abuse and addiction, mental health issues including PTSD, and more. We also work with special needs children and kids that are just going through a tough time.

Changing Gaits Sober Living Community is built on the premise of lifelong sobriety. We are a faith-based residential sober living community that guides men through the transition from early recovery to independent living, focusing on sobriety and personal growth.

Christians in Recovery

Christians in Recovery® is a group of men and women who are dedicated to personal one-on-one sharing of faith, strength and hope as we live each day in recovery. We work to regain and maintain balance and order in our lives through active discussion of the 12 Steps, the Bible, and experiences in our own recovery from abuse, family dysfunction, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships and/or addictions of alcohol, drugs, food, pornography, sexual addiction, etc. CIR is comprised of people just like you.


Clutterers Anonymous

“Clutterers Anonymous℠ is a Fellowship of compulsive clutterers who practice a 12-Step and 12-Tradition program modeled after Alcoholics Anonymous® (A.A.®). Just as alcoholics join A.A. to arrest the disease of alcoholism, and gamblers join Gamblers Anonymous to arrest the compulsion to gamble, we join CLA℠ to arrest the compulsion to clutter, one day at a time.

“Anyone may join CLA, regardless of age, gender, race, color, nationality, or creed. To begin our program, it is not necessary to understand fully why we clutter. There is only one requirement for CLA membership: the desire to stop cluttering.

“There are no strings attached to the CLA program of recovery. There are no initiation fees or dues. We are self-supporting through our own contributions. We are not affiliated with any religious, legal, or political group or connected to any outside enterprise. Our Fellowship is based on suggestion, interchange of experience, rotation of leadership, and service.”


Co-Dependents Anonymous

Co-Dependents Anonymous is a Fellowship of men and women whose common purpose is to develop healthy relationships. The only requirement for membership is a desire for healthy and loving relationships. We gather together to support and share with each other in a journey of self-discovery––learning to love the self. Living the program allows each of us to become increasingly honest with ourselves about our personal histories and our own codependent behaviors.

We rely upon the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions for knowledge and wisdom. These are the principles of our program and guides to developing honest and fulfilling relationships with ourselves and others. In CoDA, we each learn to build a bridge to a Higher Power of our own understanding, and we allow others the same privilege.

This renewal process is a gift of healing for us. By actively working the program of Co-Dependents Anonymous, we can each realize a new joy, acceptance, and serenity in our lives.

The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using cocaine and all other mind-altering substances.

Anyone who wants to stop using cocaine and all other mind-altering substances (including alcohol and other drugs) is welcome

Crystal Meth Anonymous – Minnesota

Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from addiction to crystal meth. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop using. There are no dues or fees for CMA membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. CMA is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy; and neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to lead a sober life and to carry the message of recovery to the crystal meth addict who still suffers.

We have found that we relate best to other crystal meth addicts because they understand the darkness, paranoia and compulsions of this particular addiction. The Twelve Steps of CMA were adapted from Alcoholics Anonymous. We do not believe we are better or worse than those in other Twelve Step fellowships. At the same time, many of us fail to fully identify with “a falling-down drunk” or, in the case of a heroin addict, “a nodding-off junkie.” The hyper-extended length and intensity of crystal meth’s effects, be it compulsive cleaning or sexual activity, were unique. Many of us have attended other Twelve Step meetings, but the feeling of identification in the Rooms of CMA has helped us to keep coming back. After all, who but another meth addict understands the insanity that accompanies the high and, finally, that seemingly bottomless drop into depression that makes us desperate to use still more?
