Andrea M. Hendel
MA, LMFT (Anoka Office) Psychotherapist
As a therapist, I am Strength Based, Cognitive Behavioral, and Trauma Informed. I believe it is important to help the client identify their positive strengths that will be used to assist in dealing with the concerns that lead them to therapy. I am trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), which is an evidence based practice for working with children through age 20 who have experienced a single or multiple traumatic events in their life. I have also been trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), another evidence based trauma treatment that can be used with children well into adulthood. As many people have dealt with traumatic events in their lives, I find working with this population powerful. I work with individuals, couples, families, and adolescents and provide a safe and respectful environment that leads the client to know there is no judgment in the office.
