Mandy Cowan, M.S.

Counselor in the Twin Cities

The world we live in often delivers more punches than we can handle in the moment. The stressors of work, school, and relationships compounded by family chaos, feelings of loneliness, or the earth-shattering loss of a loved one test our resiliency and strength. As our plates continue to overflow and we become overwhelmed, we often don’t take the time to reach out for the help we need.

I strive to be a support and a source of hope for you during these times. The worries, fears, and questions you may have do not need to be carried alone. My goal in therapy is to create a space where you feel safe, accepted, heard, and respected. Your voice, thoughts, beliefs, and experiences matter and deserve to be recognized.

I work with adults, adolescents, children, couples, and families who may be tackling challenging life situations. I have experience working with individuals in a correctional setting who battled anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, sleep disturbances, mood disorders, personality disorders, addiction, and interpersonal difficulties.

I received my Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Stout in Clinical Mental Health Counseling in 2017. I earned my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire in 2015 where I studied Psychology and Spanish. I am under the licensed supervision of Amber Manders, LPCC, as I complete my graduate degree and work towards obtaining my clinical licensure.
