Angie Adams MA, LPCC, RYT
As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor, I work with individuals, couples and families. My clients are varied across gender, age, ethnicity, religious, and sexual orientation. I’m a graduate of the University of Minnesota Duluth and Adler Graduate School with a master’s degree in Adlerian Psychotherapy. My background includes extensive work in the field of eating disorders as well as chemical dependency and experience working in the LGBTQ community. Since my move back to Duluth in 2014 I’ve broadened my practice to encompass more general mental health issues in addition to my specialty work. I typically work with adults, young adults (college age), and older teens. I work with people experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship issues, and general life obstacles including job changes, parenting, and loss. I also have a special interest working with postpartum depression and anxiety.
In my free time I’m a lover of nature, my family, the awesome city of Duluth and the Minnesota northland. I have two children who teach me more about life than I’ve ever learned from a book. I am a registered yoga instructor and enjoy working on my own practice as well as bringing those philosophies into my therapy work.

I strongly believe that growth-fostering relationships are a central human necessity and that chronic disconnection is a primary source of human suffering. In my office, I promote healing empathy and mutual respect to sustain positive connection. By doing this, we can create powerful changes in the way we relate to ourselves, the world, and to others.
I work with individuals and groups addressing mental health and substance use. I have facilitated complex trauma women’s groups that focus on trauma related dissociation. I am also a certified Circle of Security facilitator and have run parenting groups.
The therapy I provide is through a trauma lens and I am also an EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) therapist. This intervention is very useful for many emotional struggles, dissociation, problems associated with anxiety and depression, addiction, trauma and complex trauma experiences, developmental trauma, and attachment issues.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Women’s Studies from The College of Saint Scholastica (CSS) in 2005. I went on to receive my Masters of Social Work from CSS in 2015. I have four children and we enjoy all that northern Minnesota has to offer. I am an avid gardener and we enjoy raising chickens.

Prior to completing my Masters degree in Social Work at the University of Minnesota Duluth in 2013, I was drawn to help facilitate change in others. My path to becoming a therapist began while I was a student at Colorado State University – Pueblo leading groups in the outdoors. Through this experience it became apparent to me that I had a natural ability to connect with others and create meaningful experiences. This experience was significant to me becoming a therapist as well as a passion for connecting with others on a humanistic level while walking beside them as they create change in their lives.
My path in this field has included working with individuals, adolescents to adults, in a variety of settings including; residential, day treatment, partial hospital, outpatient, high school, and wilderness settings. Working in a large variety of settings has allowed me to understand how mental health affects many aspects of our lives and those of our families and friends. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families treating numerous mental health diagnoses.
In my personal time, I greatly enjoy being active in the outdoors year-round and seeking out live music. Otherwise I can be found in my kitchen cooking up wholesome food, gardening, or spending time with my family.

Here’s something I believe: the power of emotions is incredible. They can shape our identities, impact how we interact with others and can be the underlying source of ongoing and situational problems.
I work with adolescents, young adults, and any individuals who are struggling with understanding who they are and where they fit into the world. This may include difficulties with depression, anxiety, interpersonal/family conflicts, adjustments towards change in life, stress, trauma and other concerns.
A cognitive behavioral, mindfulness and strength/solution based therapy directs a lot of the work I do with people. For those seeking specific relief around past trauma, I am also an EMDR trained therapist. It is my hope that I can create a safe space where one can re-connect with their inherent strength, learn new ways of coping with discomfort/distress, and help you work towards positive sustainable change.
My education through the University of Wisconsin-Stout and Milwaukee and experience working in residential treatment and primary care, has led me to working with people of all demographics. It is important to me that no matter who are, you feel accepted and welcomed.
