Nicole Thorsten, MSW, LGSW

St. Louis Park psychology

Sometimes life can be overwhelming. It can be hard to get out of bed in the morning, wondering when or if anything will ever get better. This can become exhausting and lonely. I believe in working in partnership with individuals and families so they feel supported throughout the ups and downs of life. Whether you’re seeking support with life stressors, are reconciling with past experiences or are struggling to maintain everyday life, you are not alone. I will work in collaboration with you to find the tools you need to overcome some of these challenges.

I specialize in exploring emotional and behavioral concerns to provide support that’s unique to each person, utilizing a variety of researched and clinically proven approaches which may include CBT, Trauma-informed, mindfulness based activities, art therapies and more.

I am working under licensed supervision as I work towards obtaining my clinical licensure.
