Rachel Herr, MA, LPCC, Licensed Supervisor


I believe in a holistic approach to health and healing. Through an integration of several theories and ideologies, I work with individuals, couples and  any constellation of family members, specializing in relational therapy.


The person we are today has much to do with the relationships we've experienced throughout the course of our lives. Each person has a unique story to tell and that story is a critical component of who we are and guides who we become. My goal is to create a safe space with the right conditions for change where each client or relationship is able to increase awareness and find a lasting impact.


There can be many underlying causes of mental, emotional, and psychological symptoms. Through the relationships built, my goal is to help you increase life satisfaction and overall wellness.





Fred Kiesel, MA

My clinical interests are currently within the realms of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance/Commitment Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy. I have experience in utilizing Dialectic Behavior Training (DBT) approaches and continue to study and implement DBT. I am interested in providing group therapy, couples’ therapy, and individual therapy.


I obtained my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Bemidji State University and have been working in the field of mental health and social work for almost a decade. I have experience in providing a variety of mental health services and overseeing various transitional housing and supported-living programs in St. Paul and Minneapolis. I have provided Adult Rehabilitative Mental Health Services (ARMHS), Vocational Rehabilitative Services (VRS), Individualized Living Skills (ILS), among others. I believe in the efficacy of holistic approaches to physical and mental well-being. This involves a therapist tailoring their approach to meet each individual’s needs and preferences, through integration of different types of therapeutic approaches.


Additionally, my interest and study of neuroscience has led me to emphasize the interaction between physical and mental health, in the work I do. I am passionate about providing therapy that is multiculturally-sensitive and am always seeking to broaden my knowledge and expertise in that. My experience has highlighted the importance of providing person-centered planning and support, which involves consideration of the wishes/needs of the client first, and that continues to be a theme in my work.

Isabella del Castillo, Brainspotting Certified Clinician


As humans, we are all made up of a multitude of individual experiences. Our past creates the building blocks of our present. Although, sometimes these building blocks may feel like more of a hindrance than a strong foundation. I seek to provide a warm, caring space where positive
change can occur. Whether you are facing life’s challenges, navigating transitions, or seeking support for your mental well-being, I am here to listen and offer guidance with empathy and understanding.


My approach is integrative, drawing from various therapeutic modalities to tailor our sessions to your unique needs. Together, we will work collaboratively to explore your goals,
build resilience, and develop coping strategies that empower you to lead a more fulfilling life.

I am currently finishing my master’s degree in counseling psychology at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota and am working as a clinician under the licensed supervision of Rachel Herr, MA, LPCC.
