About Us

Our story is that we want to listen to you and hear yours.

Adam Lee, LMFT & LADC

Specializing in issues stemming from trauma, marriage & family, inter-personal relationships, chemical dependency.

The techniques that I’ll provide you with have been developed over the length of my career. My clients use them on a daily basis and I implement them in my own life. My goal for you is to have at least five strategies available at all times so that you can make decisions based on your goals. So no matter what you are faced with you can navigate the situation and further your goals. I am direct, solution focused, and goal oriented. We’ll start with where you are at right now and what are the most pressing problems. We’ll work collaboratively to define what you want and the path to achieve it right now. My practiced has been focused on helping people develop real strategies they can use in everyday life. I have attended trainings that teach setting boundaries, building confidence, being assertive, and how to take action. We’ll get in touch with your desires and goals for yourself. You’ll gain the ability to stay focused on your desires and avoid getting stuck.

My approach to the therapeutic space is through a validating, supportive, feminist framework to explore the challenges, concerns, and questions that arise in your journey. Feminist frameworks explore the interaction between you and your environment, especially focused on self-empowerment as you interact with family, friends, colleagues, neighborhood, and culture. There are many broken and harmful systems in place that impact your well-being. Difficulties with your mental wellness are not inherently parts of you that are broken or wrong.

There are many relationships between you and your environment that exert influences on you including harmful multigenerational patterns that you may have inherited. Let’s explore where we can make changes in your life to enhance your mental well-being and bring more harmony and meaning to you.

I am completing my master’s studies in clinical mental health counseling at Winona State University, where I also received a degree in psychology and sociology.
My primary focus is on navigating trauma and anxiety-related challenges. However, life challenges are not always clear-cut and do not easily fit into one box. Together, we will assess areas for growth and outline the steps to achieve your goals. Regardless of the nature of the challenges, I can assist you in achieving your goals. We may explore cognitive behavioral techniques (CBT) or dialectical behavioral (DBT) techniques to aid you in your journey. I am also prepared to delve into your bigger life questions – who am I? what is my purpose?

You are the expert on being you. I will provide a safe, non-judgmental space and offer guidance and perspectives to help clarify and navigate effectively towards your goals. I am a holistic provider that will help you focus on the relevant connection between the body, mind, and environment. I want to provide the support you need to connect or reconnect to your inner strength and express your authentic, powerful self.

Becoming a therapist as my second career path has been the most rewarding part of my life. I would be honored to share in your healing journey. Call to set up an appointment!

Dr. Dana Phenix, LMFT & Clinical Supervisor (LMFT, LPC, LPCC, and LICSW)

I have a very strong background in attachment and trauma. I received my doctorate in marriage and family therapy from Argosy University – Twin Cities, and my master’s degree in clinical and counseling psychology from Capella University in Minneapolis.

Prior to going into private practice, I worked with families, children, couples, and individuals providing in-home therapy and skills work to high-risk people.

I became aware of neurofeedback in 2013, and received training in neurofeedback in Atlanta, GA. My therapy practice has evolved to include both talk-therapy and neurofeedback.

The bulk of my work focuses on anxiety-related issues (PTSD, generalized anxiety disorder, phobias) and relationship issues (break-ups, neediness in the relationship, attachment issues, and problems with communication).

  • Life transitions after a break-up or loss
  • Relationship reconciliation coaching
