Elk River Office
April Bergstrom, MA
Approach: My approach blends elements of humanistic and cognitive-behavioral therapies. My goal is to create an atmosphere of acceptance, so you feel safe exploring your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I provide both DBT and EMDR. I am also trained in art therapy and offer my clients the option of making art in session. Making art can help you reach a state of mindfulness, express emotions and ideas that are difficult to talk about, and see things from a new perspective. I am interested in working with adults and adolescents who want to change destructive behaviors and learn new ways of coping with difficult thoughts and emotions.
Hobbies: In my free time, I like to make pottery, play board games, and adore my three cats.
