Therapist for Trauma Recovery

traumaTraumas come in all shapes and sizes, just like human beings. And every individual responds to trauma in their life in a different way. Laurie Grengs is a Coon Rapids, MN psychologist who specializes in helping people recover and heal from their traumas. Laurie will not define clients by their traumas, but instead helps them understand the impact those traumas have had on their lives. Traumas can be chronic or acute. For example, if you have been psychologically neglected or more subtly mistreated by someone you have known for a long time (chronic), that trauma is likely to manifest differently than if you are responding to post-traumatic stress disorder because of a recent car accident (an acute trauma).

Anger Issue Adolescent Counselor

Adolescent CouselerWhen we hold on to anger, it festers within us and threatens to define our relationships with family members and virtually every person we meet who might become close to us. Anger becomes toxic when it is not dealt with properly. When adolescents learn to hold on to anger, the toxicity threatens to become life-long patterns. More immediately, anger can manifest in tense family relations and sometimes even run-ins with the legal system. But even if anger is “only” affecting day-to-day relationships, when it is experienced by adolescents it is important to deal with it properly, caringly, and thoroughly as they are still maturing and their view of the world is limited. Laurie Grengs is a licensed psychologist who offers comprehensive counseling services for adolescents with anger issues. Her practice serves the communities of Coon Rapids, Blaine, Andover, and Ham Lake, Minnesota area and she has 35 years of experience helping adolescents understand their anger and control it better.

More proof of her commitment to help everyone she possibly can is her willingness to work within the context of some of the most difficult issues we can experience: those that originate within the family. Issues that tend to be among the most difficult in the category of family issues are those that stem from the toxicity that some parents introduce into children’s lives.

Laurie Grengs can help clients understand those patterns and create strategies to work through them and heal.
