of a client... I
had struggled for years with mental illness.
I married an abusive alcoholic husband and
divorced after 4 years. I was in and out of
psychiatric hospitals, misdiagnosed with depression
and anxiety, and put on medications that did
not work. At the age of 34, I was raped and
suffered with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder,

is a common diagnosis. About 40 million

illness affects 10 million Americans.

HSI's adult outpatient therapy services are available at all of our office locations (Forest Lake, Stillwater, Cottage Grove and Oakdale). We offer a variety of services for problems ranging from stress and adjustment problems to severe and chronic mental illness. Services begin with an assessment in which the client is interviewed to determine the nature and extent of the problem. Recommendations are discussed, including matching the client with the staff person or program that will best suit his or her needs. Speciality areas include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), men's and women's anger management, and treatments for depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, post tramautic stress disorder and thought disorders. Treatment is provided by group, individual, couple and family therapy formats. We strive to offer treatments that are state-of-the-art and strongly supported by positive outcomes. Out staff members include psychologists, clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists, as well as trainees within these areas. Thus, we have highly-trained, seasoned professionals balanced with fresh, enthusiastic trainees that combine to form treatment teams that stay current and keenly interested in working with individuals and their concerns. Out outpatient team is further strengthened by having an in-house psychiatry staff that provides regular consultation about medications and their impact or potential usefulness for our clients.
