There are many reasons why people come to therapy. Sometimes it is to deal with long-standing psychological issues, or problems with anxiety or depression. Other times it is in response to unexpected changes in one's life such as a divorce or work transition. Many seek the advice of a therapist as they pursue their own personal exploration and growth. Working with a therapist can help provide insight, support, and new strategies for all types of life challenges. Therapy can help address many types of issues including depression, anxiety, conflict, grief, stress management, body-image issues, and general life transitions. Therapy is right for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their life by taking responsibility, creating greater self-awareness, and working towards change in their lives.What can I expect in a therapy session? Every therapy session is unique and caters to each individual and their specific goals. During therapy sessions it is standard to talk about the primary issues and concerns in your life. It is common to schedule a series of weekly sessions, where each session lasts 60 minutes. Sometimes individuals who are going through a particularly difficult challenge may request more time per session or more than one session per week. Therapy can be short-term, focusing on a specific issue or longer-term, addressing more complex issues or ongoing personal growth. There may be times when you are asked to take certain actions outside of the therapy sessions, such as reading a relevant book or keeping records to track certain behaviors. Between sessions it is important process what has been discussed and integrate it into your life. For therapy to be most effective you must be an active participant, both during and between the sessions.What benefits can I expect from working with a therapist?Therapy can provide insight and new perspectives into life's challenges and can help create solutions to difficult problems.

by Jane , 01/02/2013

Paula Detjen is a wonderful therapist. She works with clients of all ages and with a variety of needs. She is very non-judgmental and will go above and beyond what is expected. She relates very easily to her clients. I would highly recommend Paula to anyone!

My Teenage Daughter

by Parent , 08/17/2012

Paula has been a very good therapist for my daughter. She has helped her through some pretty tough situations.


by Kris , 08/18/2012

Paula is a very caring and helpful therapist. She never makes you feel inferior. She truly cares about her patients and is someone you feel you can trust. She is very good with teenagers.

Gambling addiction

by Jon , 08/18/2012

As a deaf person its hard to find help for gambling addiction since GA (gamblers annymous) meetings are not interpreted meetings and no resources exist to fill the need in twin cities metro area. I found Paula J. Detjen, PLLC who knows ASL which is a huge help itself and she spent a lot of time to find me an interpreter so I could attend GA meetings. She is very good at what she does, so if YOU want to QUIT gambling see Paula J. Detjen, PLLC.

Paula Detjen

by Nancy , 08/18/2012

Paula has been counseling my daughter for around seven years. She has been a positive influence in her life as she struggled through the crucial teen years and has helped her and the rest of our family through many tough times. I honestly don't think we could have parented my daughter without her help. Her gentle guidance has been just what she's needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone struggling to parent a child.

pre-marital counseling

by Leah , 08/31/2012

We found Paula through the Prepare/Enrich marriage counseling materials. Paula helped us work through our pre-marital counseling and be more prepared for marriage. Even though we already get along really well and mesh tightly, we still found it helpful to discuss issues we hadn't even thought of. Paula has a kind, welcoming manner. I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so.

Teen and Child Counseling

by Katie , 08/20/2012

Coming from a blended family, Paula has helped us work through many issues dealing with physical and emotional abuse, abandonment, alcoholism, decision-making, etc. She has been with us through a very tough court process, and she has given all of us many tools to use to get through our struggles. The kids love getting their time alone with Paula and they feel much better after having someone listen and talk through their issues.

Look forward to your session.....

by A satisfied Mom , 08/20/2012

If you are looking for someone who is wonderful with children....and parents, Paula is amazing. My son looks forward to going to talk to her, and I look forward to the appointments as well. She has patience, understanding, toys for my sons busy hands, and chocolate for a nice treat at the end of the session.
