Celia McCoy



Celia’s work as a yoga therapist has taught her how truly interconnected our human system is. She understands that thoughts, emotions, and past experiences show up in our body and breath, sometimes leaving us tense, tired but wired, irritable, and disconnected from ourselves. If appropriate, Celia guides clients in breath work, visualization, and even simple movements to help them feel more grounded.

Celia works with folks experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, life transitions, chronic pain and health concerns, trouble with sleep, relationship concerns, and histories of trauma. She understands that who you are in the world deeply impacts you and your lived experiences, and she commits to honor all of your cultural identities. Celia is LGBTQIA+ affirming, neurodivergence-affirming, and practices fat positivity. Celia is particularly interested in helping parents of transgender children navigate the joys and challenges of supporting their children through all the stages of their transition.

Celia is in the process of completing her MA in Counseling and Psychological Services from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Her experience as an ensemble musician continually reminds her that with human connection, mindful presence, and hard work, transformative experiences are possible.

Celia works with older adolescents (16+) and adults, providing individual therapy. Celia is working under the licensed supervision of Kate West, MSW, LICSW while she completes her graduate internship program.
