As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), I work with clients in individual and group therapy settings. I hold a  PhD in Clinical Psychology and have specialized training in the area of Neuropsychology. I typically work with adult clients on issues of trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, and general life concerns. Areas of specialization include neuropsychology, trauma, personality disorders, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). As a cancer survivor, I have a strong interest in helping individuals and family members psychologically and emotionally navigate this often overwhelming and difficult chapter in their lives. I also provide psychological assessment services and will be adding neuropsychological assessment services in the near future. 

In my free time, I enjoy running, learning, reading, crocheting, and spending time with my family. I love being outdoors, whether it be gardening, sitting in the sun reading a book, or taking my two dogs for a walk. 

If you have questions about therapy or assessment, or how the therapy process works, I would be more than happy to arrange a phone call with you ahead of time. During that time, I can learn more about your needs and will do my best to answer any questions you may have.  
Dr. Kimberly Overlie, PhD, LPCC
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).  I believe therapy works best when it engages the whole person - body, mind, emotions and spirit.  My aim is to provide a safe, supportive, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for you to address the issues that keep you from living more fully, deeply and with greater satisfaction.  I am dedicated to supporting you on your journey toward positive change, finding new perspectives, and learning effective coping skills.

I am interested in working with adults who struggle with symptoms of depression and anxiety, mood disorders, attachment issues, body image/self-esteem/identity concerns, ineffective behavior patterns, life transitions, and various forms of trauma (childhood abuse and neglect, sexual assault, generation and collective trauma, car accidents, and other frightening events).  

I have expertise in treating trauma/PTSD from a body based perspective using Somatic Experiencing® (SE) by assisting the body in gaining an expanded ability to tolerate distress while releasing trauma that has been stored in the body.  I am intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and have 9 years of experience working with individuals diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and/or multi-complex disorders.  As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, I enjoy leading Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ groups exploring the physics of shame and vulnerability as well as the process of Rising Strong™ when we fall.

As a culturally responsive therapist, I work with clients from their unique experience, considering their cultural and familial upbringing.  I look forward to the opportunity to walk with you through your healing journey.
Pam Baillie-Johnson 
M.A., LMFT SEP
My specific area of practices is as a Marriage and Family therapist but over the years of working mental health my interests clinically have broadened. Particularily, I work in the areas of life transitions, relationship issues, trauma, personal guilt and shame, career stress, codependency, numbing behaviors, panic disorder, self esteem, and sexual abuse. In my practice I see Adults, adolescents, and children down to age 6.

I have spent much of my clinical time also as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist and enjoy working with Personality Disorders. With Families and couples I use a family systems and cognitive behavioral therapy approach. In therapy I strive to increase positive coping skills with my clients to help them live a more healthy effective life. 

When I am not at the office I am mountain biking, running, and spending time with my family. If you have questions about the therapeutic process or just want more information in general call our office or email.
Peter Kroll 
MSE, LMFT
As a licensed psychologist, I act as both an empathetic listening ear and an objective observer. I have extensive training and experience in the realms of psychological evaluations, as well as relational therapy. For evaluations, I work with children (age 6+) and adults to develop a firmer understanding of the whole person to make useful clinical recommendations in the areas of cognitive functioning/neuropsychological capabilities, ADHD, learning struggles, Autism Spectrum Disorders, and general diagnostic clarification. Additionally, I often work within the legal environment completing forensic examinations specific to guardianship, fitness for duty/employment, parenting capacity, civil commitment, competency for trial, and competency at the time of offense. I also offer professional consultative services to organizations and supervision to clinicians working towards licensure or establishing new competencies.

Therapeutically, I work with adults in relational and systems-based therapy, whether meeting with an individual, a couple, or the whole family system. From healing after an affair, to re-navigating family roles to increase effective communication, to re-defining your own identity and relationship with yourself, I incorporate evidence-based interventions to fit your precise situation to reduce symptoms of conflict, sadness, fear, and distrust. While interventions are specifically tailored for each individual, I often work from the perspective of finding meaning and depth in life, highlighting early relationship patterns and survival skills with the understanding of how these patterns continue today, and taking a mindful approach coping. When not in the office, I continue to love to learn by being in the solitude of nature, watching documentaries, broadening my music horizons, and voraciously reading.

Dr. Megan Paris
PhD, LP
I have a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and wrote my dissertation about substance use issues. I feel privileged that my clients allow me to be part of their healing journey and trust me with their stories. I love to learn and love the challenge of working with a diversity of mental health issues.

I have been specializing in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy for the last 9 years and enjoy helping people with emotional dysregulation develop more control of their emotions and their unwanted or dangerous behaviors. I also specialize in working with trauma and am trained in EMDR and mindfulness approaches. When I am not working I enjoy being outside in lovely Duluth and doing activities such as hiking, gardening, and making puzzles.

Dr. Sara Dhuse 
PhD, LP
DeAnna Edwardson MA
I’ve had a passion for working with people since I was a teenager; now as a therapist I am doing what I love while helping other people discover their passions. I work with children ages 6 and up, adults and families. I help people who have clinical issues like anxiety, depression, autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, eating disorders, trauma, intimate partner violence,sexual abuse, and others. I also help those who just need to talk and sort things out in life from a non-judgmental view point.

When I’m not helping others on their path to healing, I enjoy travelling around the country and overseas. I love to cook, learn new things, and be outdoors as much as possible in the summer. I run 5K’s and have run half-marathons.  I have quite a bit of cultural experience that enhances my ability to connect to many people.
I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor and a National Certified Counselor. I earned my Bachelors degree from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, SD. I earned my Masters Degree from the University of Northern Colorado. After growing up in Southern Minnesota I lived in Memphis, Tennessee (slaw on the barbecue), Colorado Springs, Colorado (green chili as hot as you can stand it) and returned to Minnesota to live by the greatest lake. Many life experiences brought me to this profession; I have taught 4th and 7th grades, volunteered for Hospice organizations in four cities, turned miles of yarn into knitted gifts and accessories, ran many trails, and climbed mountains. I have failed and I have been successful. I have experienced crushing sadness, beautiful joy, and quiet peace. 

When you make the decision to come to a counseling office, I know that you bring with you a wide variety of life experiences, as well. You are made of many memories sweet and sour, accomplishments, values and needs. They are all important. I enjoy working with people. As a therapist, I have the most experience working with people who are grieving, experiencing life changes, processing trauma, coping with depression and anxiety, seeking new directions, and finding better ways to be in relationships. I work with strategies from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and other treatment philosophies as they are appropriate.

When you come to counseling, it is important that you share what is important to you and learn the skills and strategies that fit your values and lifestyle. What you bring to therapy is every bit as important as what you will take out of therapy. When I am not at work I spend time with my family, get outside, exercise and knit. I have yarn stashed everywhere.
