Sarah Anderson BSN RN, Marriage and Family Therapy Graduate Student

Mental Health Practitioner

I am completing a master’s degree at Adler Graduate School with an emphasis in Marriage and Family Therapy.  I look forward to working with couples and individuals experiencing challenging seasons in relationships and in life.

During my nursing career, I supported patients and families in times of great joy and deep sorrow.  My work as a nurse has provided a unique opportunity to develop listening skills and a warm and empathetic presence. As a member of the multidisciplinary team at the Eating Disorder Institute (EDI) and Melrose Center, I learned a non-blaming, skill-based approach to working with clients and their families. I bring these skills, along with substantial life experience, to my work as a therapist.  I have completed Masters level course work at Adler Graduate School in the Marriage and Family Therapy program and a year of internship at the MN Couple Therapy Center.

I understand fractured relationships, loneliness and the longing for healing and connection.  My relationship with my Heavenly Father, the support of important people, and a passion for wellness in spirit, mind, and body has directed my healing journey and has inspired my desire to help others.

I am a student member of the American Association of Christian Counselors.

My training includes:

  • Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT)
  • Advanced Training in EFT
  • PREPARE-ENRICH Pre-Marital/ Marital Couples Assessment

As an intern at the Minnesota Couple Therapy Center, I am accepting clients under the supervision of Dr. Kurt Wical, Ph.D., LMFT.
