Counseling for adults Minneapolis

Our Approach

We emphasize a relational and trauma-informed approach to therapy that’s focused on your emotions, and how they surface in context. This framework has many benefits as it puts your unique personality, perspective, and real-world behaviors first. With that deeper understanding, we can discover the right therapeutic methods together, to achieve palpable results based on your strengths.

Finding Your Path

At LynLake, you’ll find an experienced, inclusive, compassionate team of providers ready to help all people on their path to healing and wellness. We take a holistic approach based on people as individuals with complex histories and circumstances, so that we can address the real issues you’re facing. No matter where you are on your journey, we’re here to guide you to finding your path toward a more peaceful, fulfilling life.

Focused On Your Whole Self

  • Focused on You - Relational

    Your journey is unlike anyone else’s, and it belongs to you. We work in collaboration with you to discover an individualized healing plan that can best serve your path to realizing your authentic self. Our relational approach is designed to account for and celebrate the many social and personal factors that make you who you are.

  • Focused on Emotions - Psychotherapy

    Part of our relational approach is a process of uncovering and acknowledging your emotions and tracing the experiences that give rise to them. Mapping the behaviors and thought patterns that stand in the way of healing empowers you to take your story into your own hands and live your truth on your own terms.

  • Focused on Results – Integrative Services

    Finding the healing plan that best suits you can involve a range of other creative, strengths-based therapies. A narrative approach can reintegrate your history by incorporating personal triumphs and virtues. An existential approach can dissipate anxiety and negative thinking by establishing new ways to create your own meaning. An Internal Family Systems approach can help you identify and express parts of self to integrate a cohesive identity. And for couples, non-violent communication and Imago therapy can help repair relationships. These and other methods can provide practical resources for change.

Expertise with Empathy

We’re committed to helping all people heal and thrive. Our diverse team of over 250+ practitioners covers a vast range of clinical and psychotherapeutic specializations. While some of the more common concerns below may encompass a wide range of topics, our clinical and therapeutic expertise covers a much wider array of needs and focuses. We’ll work with you to design a process and approach that’s tailored to your individual needs.

Alcohol / Addiction

Is dependence on alcohol, substances, or compulsive habits affecting your relationships at work or at home? Work with one of our providers to unearth and understand the deeper emotional roots of addictive behaviors and begin the journey toward more centered, self-directed living.

Anxiety / Depression

It can be hard to name and express the unsettled feelings we carry inside us. When those feelings begin to affect the quality of daily life, it can be even harder to know how to begin unpacking them. Let one of our providers guide you through the process of voicing intense feelings of fear, grief, sadness, or loneliness toward healing and relief.

Trauma / PTSD

Sometimes our past experiences can undermine our ability to lead healthy, functional lives in the present moment. Our trained experts in trauma and PTSD can guide you on a path toward feelings of greater safety and abundance.


Every person’s sexuality comprises a unique constellation of history, identity, relationships, and desire. Connect with one of our sex and sexuality experts to explore orientation, somatic experience, attraction, preferences, and relational challenges in a safe and emotionally expansive environment.

Eating / Body Image

Are you or others worried about your relationship with food or exercise, or feeling preoccupied with body image, appearance, shape, and size? Our trained experts in eating disorders, nutrition, and related issues will empower you on your unique journey towards healing and recovery.


Going from surviving to thriving can be a challenge in today's busy world.
