Working alongside Anna Grimm in providing Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, I’ve been made aware of what a gifted therapist she is. She’s smart and thoughtful; she listens well and gets clients to hear themselves; she’s engaging and 100% present; she’s kind and humane; she’s funny. And her compassion and her empathy cannot be missed. Anna meets you where you are in your life; she exemplifies caring and the desire to help you move forward and work through the issues and struggles that life has given you. And her photographer’s eye becomes the one that brings insight to the therapist/client relationship. If you’re looking for a therapist, Anna will not disappoint you.

Adam is insightful, empathetic, and obviously knowledgeable in his field. I've always felt comfortable discussing difficult topics -- I believe he genuinely wants to help me understand some issues I'm dealing with. I'd recommend giving him a visit!


In times of stress and transition, we might experience feelings of being overwhelmed, depressed mood, and anxiety. Frequently, we experience worsened physical symptoms, like difficulty sleeping, stomach upset, or pain. I offer the chance to consider alternatives in handling life's problems, find and build on your inner strengths, and discover new skills that can assist you both personally and professionally. It is my belief that to heal, we must care for spirit, body and mind. I work with adults experiencing mood problems such as depression, anxiety, and anger, relationship problems, and/or physical health problems like irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, and cancer. I utilize a mind-body method which addresses the connection between mood, stress, physical health, and thoughts. My work includes assisting people in learning methods for aid in these areas; these strategies may involve lifestyle change, relaxation techniques, hypnosis, as well as other stress management methods.


I provide both individual psychotherapy and psychological testing. My belief is that people who come to therapy need a therapist who strives to understand their experience. As people come to feel understood and safe in the therapeutic context, they can then work through the difficult issues that impede their growth. My approach is to help clients to process life-related difficulties, explore what has influenced them to become the person they are today, and discover what might be blocking the attainment of a more satisfying life. Clients can expect a safe, collaborative therapeutic relationship that focuses on growth and building personal strengths so that they feel empowered to make changes in their lives. I enjoy working with clients in psychotherapy who have difficulties related to the following: * Depression * Lack of Life Satisfaction/Fulfillment * Anxiety, Stress, and Fears * Relationship Conflict/Relational Concerns * Intimacy Concerns * Difficulties Controlling/Expressing Emotions * Grief/Loss * Adjustment * Phase of Life Issues * Trauma * Abuse My work in psychological assessment with clients, who range from children to older adults, has addressed issues such as follows: * Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder * Autism Spectrum Disorder * Learning Disorders * Mood Disorders Such as Depression and Bipolar Disorder * Anxiety Disorders * Personality Disorders I currently accept clients insured with HealthPartners insurance and anticipate accepting other insurances in the near future.


We provide counseling and psychotherapy for adults and couples. We specialize in men's and women's issues, relationship, family of origin, postpartum, infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy and infant loss, and life transitions.


I have specialized in treating youth for the past 10 years. I have training in Experiential Play Therapy, using Norton's model. This allows me to use the metaphorical meaning inherent in toys to help children know I understand their story, put words to it, and help them move through the healing process in the safety of metaphor. Children learn and heal through experiential process vs. cognitive process, so toys are a great method to help them in the therapy process. I provide a toy room specifically for play therapy. I also enjoy working with teenagers and young adults. These developmental years are made easier with the support of an adult who can listen, empathize, gently guide, and support as you learn and grow. I enjoy helping families manage the emancipation process and launch their children with success. I love my job! I get to personally witness people's stories and help them navigate the process of healing, learning, and growing. I am truly amazed at people's inherent ability to grow and change, and enjoy being able to provide a nurturing, supportive, and comfortable space for them to use during their growth.


I am a licensed psychologist in the Minneapolis/St. Paul suburbs. I provide individual therapy for teens and adults, gay/lesbian couples and families. Integrative psychotherapy pays close attention to the mind/body relationship. I work with mindfulness, energy psychotropic, and a range of emotional self-regulation skills. I'm always integrating education in the neurobiology of how things work with all of us humans. I specialize in anxiety/depression, trauma, unresolved abuse (emotional or physical), and the implications of family of origin relationships. I also do some co-dependency and recovery issues. Most insurances are accepted.


I offer couples, individuals, and families an opportunity for a lasting change. You do not need to feel overwhelmed by life's problems any longer; I'm here to help you! My mission is to help regular people, just like you, with life's problems. My goal is to provide an opportunity for the kind of change that will let you lead a more fulfilling life. Counseling can help you cope with life's stresses, and increase your awareness. It can also give you more energy and of course, make you feel better! Help is here for you and your relationship. I work based on the idea that we heal in relationship. Because I have seen it many times, I believe that you can recover from anger and get unstuck and out of the same old patterns. Trust can be rebuilt after betrayal, and you can renew the intimacy that brought you together in the first place. Communication problems do not have to escalate to the point that they get out of control. I work with all types of couples, be it married, same sex, living together, dating or engaged. Segal Psychotherapy offers help for individuals. Individual counseling is an inner journey that's focused on your goals. It is a collaborative effort that will help you shift out of the patterns that no longer serve you and steer you toward the life you desire. After counseling, people often experience more fulfilling relationships, healed past hurts, the ability to manage your anger and your anxiety, the ability to cope more effectively with life changes, increased self esteem and feeling more balanced and whole. In general, after counseling, you may feel more in control of your life. If your past is holding you back because of painful memories, I use a method with proven success for trauma resolution (EMDR) that can help you.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are the types of psychologists?

Psychologists are healthcare professionals who use scientific methods to understand the relationships between the brain, environment and behavior. Psychologists may focus on research — studying how the brain and various environments drive behaviors to better understand the issues that trouble patients and society as a whole — or they may focus on practice — interacting with people using therapeutic methods. The American Psychological Association shares some of the more prevalent types of psychologists:

  • Clinical psychologists assess and treat mental, emotional and behavioral disorders.
  • Cognitive and perceptual psychologists study human perception, thinking and memory.
  • Community psychologists work to strengthen the abilities of communities, settings, organizations and broader social systems to meet people’s needs — such as improving support for victims of natural disasters, or working to improve health policies.
  • Counseling psychologists help people understand and take action on everyday issues, career and work problems, and serious adversity.
  • Developmental psychologists study the psychological development of the human being throughout life.
  • Educational psychologists concentrate on how effective teaching and learning take place.
  • Engineering psychologists conduct research on how people work best with machines.
  • Environmental psychologists study the dynamics of how people interact with their environments.
  • Evolutionary psychologists study how evolutionary principles such as mutation, adaptation and selective fitness influence human thought, feeling and behavior.
  • Experimental psychologists study cognitive processes, comparative psychology (cross-species comparisons), and learning and conditioning.
  • Forensic psychologists apply psychological principles to legal issues.
  • Health psychologists specialize in how biological, psychological and social factors affect health and illness.
  • Industrial/organizational psychologists apply psychological principles and research methods to the workplace to improve productivity, health and the quality of work life.
  • Neuropsychologists and behavioral neuropsychologists explore the relationships between brain systems and behavior.
  • Quantitative and measurement psychologists focus on methods and techniques for designing experiments and analyzing psychological data.
  • Rehabilitation psychologists work with stroke and accident victims, people with mental disabilities, and those with developmental disabilities caused by such conditions as cerebral palsy, epilepsy and autism.
  • School psychologists assess and counsel students, consult with parents and school staff, and conduct behavioral interventions when appropriate.
  • Social psychologists study how a person’s mental life and behavior are shaped by interactions with other people.
  • Sport psychologists help athletes refine their focus on competition goals, become more motivated, and learn to deal with anxiety and fear of failure around competition.

What is a psychologist?

A psychologist is a professionally trained mental health professional who helps patients navigate challenging life situations or mental health issues. To become a psychologist you must earn a doctoral degree; qualifying degrees include a Ph.D., Psy.D. or Ed.D. To actively practice, a psychologist must be licensed in their state and maintain good standing. Psychologists are trained to administer tests that can evaluate a patient’s cognitive strength and weaknesses, intellectual skills, vocational aptitude and preference, personality characteristics, and neuropsychological functioning, explains the American Psychological Association (APA).

A psychologist meets with patients in an office and may work with a variety of methods, depending on patient need, such as cognitive, behavioral or interpersonal.  According to the APA, common reasons a person may visit a psychologist include:

  • Dealing with depression, anger or anxiety over a long period of time.
  • Help with a chronic condition that is interfering with their lives or physical health.
  • Help with grieving and other abrupt transitions.
  • Overcoming addictions.
  • Managing chronic illness.
  • Breaking old and harmful patterns of thinking or behavior.

Can a clinical psychologist write prescriptions?

To be able to write a prescription, a clinical psychologist must practice in a state that permits them to do so, and must either have a master’s degree in psychopharmacology or have completed the required advanced training program. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), five states currently permit psychologists to write prescriptions: Idaho, New Mexico, Illinois, Iowa and Louisiana. Many psychologists who are not able to write prescriptions work in partnership with psychiatrists, pediatricians or primary care doctors to help their patients who need medication.

How much do therapists cost?

If you are experiencing a challenging time, have mental health difficulties, or just want professional guidance as you move through life, a therapist can provide relief, tools and structure. The national average cost for a therapist is $80-$100 per hour, although prices may be higher or lower depending on geographic location and the experience and training of the therapist.

Psychiatrists, psychologists and licensed therapists are all health professionals who offer various modalities of therapy. Ask questions about the type of therapy they specialize in (such as cognitive or behavioral, etc.) and their area of expertise (such as grief, anxiety, body image disorders, etc.) to help you find the right fit for your needs. Therapy sessions are typically 50-60 minutes long.  The patient usually meets with the therapist in their office; sessions may also be held remotely (via Skype, etc.) or in a clinical setting. Psychologists, psychiatrists and other therapists who have earned advanced degrees will typically charge higher rates than other licensed therapists. Depending on your diagnosis, your health insurance may cover your therapy costs.
