Kathleen Sullivan


Kathleen is a compassionate, creative, collaborative therapist who listens deeply, and inspires you to engage your healthiest thinking and take action towards the positive changes you desire. I connect with your personal and cultural strengths, and your creativity. We may use song-writing, art, puppetry, and Nguzu Saba and other cultural practices to promote self-expression and growth.

Navigating the world can be exhilarating and challenging. I am passionate about supporting you in thriving, not just surviving! I am here to listen, to care, to celebrate your joys and support your struggles. I am honored to support you and your identity, including BIPOC, LGBTQ+, teens through elders, with and without disability. I will affirm your personal and cultural strengths, and cultural ways of healing and growing. I encourage and empower you as you embrace your strengths, engage meaningfully, and live your life authentically.

My work is strengths-based, client-centered, and trauma-informed. I take a wholistic view; we are whole people, who are shaped by intersecting identities, realities, and influences. I draw on creative modalities like Sandtray/art/music/roleplay, as well as Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I facilitate a group for those who are contemplating retirement, a life transition that goes smoother with emotional and social preparation. I offer Psychedelic-Assisted Psychotherapy via a partnership with the Institute for Integrative Therapies.

Over the last 20 plus years, I have worked in a variety of settings – medical, educational, disability advocacy, and mobile crisis. I will connect you to community resources that will best fit your needs and values. When not at work, I can be found enthusiastically bike-commuting through Minneapolis in all weather, as well as gardening, hiking, traveling, and Irish dancing.
