Brenda Hubers, MSW/LICSW, EMDR


I'm Brenda Hubers, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker. Welcome to our website! We care about people and are excited to come along side of you and your loved ones to help improve your quality of life. I specialize in working with people who struggle with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) anxiety and depression. I enjoy helping individuals, couples, families.

I draw from a variety of therapeutic theory and techniques as well as use your spiritual gifts. I offer warm, compassionate, trustworthy, and respectful clinical mental health services in a confidential, relaxed environment. I feel it is a privilege and honor to share in your inner struggles and help you achieve hope, health and healing.

I have been helping people for 35 plus years. I'm a wife, mother and grandmother with many life experiences. I am non judgmental and it is my hope you will know my therapy office as a safe place to talk about your deepest thoughts and feelings.

Sometimes medicine is a valuable tool but often it is not. I have a good working relationship with medical providers in the area should medical help be needed.

I am certified and specialize in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). EMDR is an effective approach to treat PTSD, Anxiety and Phobia.

Charline Bengtson, MA, LMFT

Success in therapy is based on the ability to find trust and comfort in the therapeutic relationship. Trust and comfort have the power to provide healing, growth and guidance in the journey of therapy. My philosophy to therapy seeks to restore balance to my client’s life through finding peace with one’s thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. My ultimate hope for my clients is for them to discover authentic and true healing for the entire well-being.

It takes incredibly brave individuals and families to seek an alternative perspective when life becomes distressing and overwhelming. Sometimes we just need someone to hold space for us.

Sometimes we need someone to be real with us.  Sometimes we need to understand and trust the process of recovery and healing.  Sometimes we need to gain knowledge about biological and psychological processes.  Sometimes we just get completely lost along the path and we need to find our feet again.

I am humbled by the opportunity to touch my client’s lives and be a catalyst on their journey as well as become a part of their story. I believe we all have a story to share and a story we are writing with our lives.  My diverse training background allows me to integrate various therapeutic strategies into the counseling process based on the needs of the client.   The art of
psychotherapy involves being flexible and creative enough to use a practical method rather than "one size fits all"; approach.

Becky Coulter LMFTBecky Coulter

Since graduating from Drexel University’s program of Marriage and Family therapy in 1985, Becky Coulter has spent 30 years in delivering family, group and individual therapy and managing treatment programs. She has worked as a therapist and director in residential and outpatient treatment for women with eating disorders, prenatal family support services, mental health and addiction treatment for pregnant and parenting women, and adolescent residential mental health treatment.

Working with individuals and families under high degree of emotional and social stress, she feels privileged to have gained a wide exposure to problems of adoptive families, children in out of home placement, trauma, identity issues, grief and loss, major mental illness and less acute but chronic and troubling behavioral responses to problems. While people who come to therapy need aid in reducing the effect of their symptoms on their daily life, they also come as a member of a family and community. These connections remain the strongest resource for resilience. It is my aim to respect and honor the family’s role in helping people to maintain and heal.

In addition to individual and family therapy, Becky has access to the aid of her registered therapy dog if the client is interested in having him present. Rex He serves as a stress reliever and a friendly, willing listener.

Melissa Kron, LAMFTMelissa Kron

I am a graduate of the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at St. Cloud State University. Prior to embarking on this journey, I spent 10+ years in human resources working with managers and employees in resolving workplace issues. I transitioned into this field because I wanted to have an opportunity to improve my community, which I believe can be achieved by strengthening families and individuals.

I have experience working with adults and teenagers. I am particularly interested in working with adolescents, couples, and families addressing various life transition challenges. I approach therapy as an opportunity to explore your own personal story, recognizing that you are the expert on your life. I tend to focus on strengths, and seek opportunities to explore patterns, as well as the broader context of your story.

I feel blessed to have the opportunity to assist others in navigating through life challenges, and I look forward to the opportunity to work with you!
