    The biggest part of my job as a therapist is feeling compassion for others.  I get to work each day with my colleagues who are like family and who also are passionate and dedicated to serving this community. In addition to counseling, I'm a mediator for family, community, and business meditations, and I work on the business end of the Duluth Counseling Center. What an opportunity I have, to come to work, enjoy my job, enjoy who I’m working with, and work with so many others who are also excited to be here, all while making a difference in people’s lives.  I strive not to give up on a person, even those upon whom others have given up. I see my role as a cheerleader and giver of hope as I try to pass on unconditional support. I am fervent about meeting people where they’re at and providing them a space of nonjudgmental support. My goal is to help my clients find or regain their purpose and happiness that they may have lost due to life adjustments, depression, anxiety, etc.  I work with individuals, families, and couples.  Away from work, you will find me outdoors in most of my free time with my husband, children, and friends. My friends will attest that I actively live my life by the motto “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.” I’ve coached youth hockey. I particularly like getting girls interested in hockey and in golf. I enjoy hunting and shooting; I strive to be a female role model in these outdoor sports. I also volunteer in the courts and the community providing mediation services. I am also passionate about education and I am on the Board of Directors at my children’s school. Lastly, I am an avid reader.

  • Lizabeth Flink
    MA, LPCC

    My career in counseling began in 1991 in Palm Beach County, Florida jails working to help men and women suffering from addiction issues. Since then I have had the good fortune to experience sharing the stories of many in a variety of settings, including, women and children in shelters and treatment, adolescents in juvenile homes, children in foster care, adult developmentally disabled in group homes, and adults in treatment centers for addiction and alcoholism. Within these settings, I have provided therapy to individuals struggling with Substance Use Disorders, Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, Bi-Polar, Schizoaffective Disorder, Schizophrenia, Personality Disorders, and Eating Disorders. In striving to help individuals, I have come to know my own strengths. I am empathic, I instill hope, and I am nonjudgemental. Most of all, I believe in the ability to heal. Through the years, I have developed skills in several disciplines. I utilize an eclectic evidence-based approach to therapy, incorporating tools from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Humanistic Psychology, Existential Therapy, Spirituality, and Dialectical behavior therapy. I respect each person as a unique individual, who is capable, has strengths, has a purpose, and desires a joyous life.

    On a personal note, I love spending time with my family, three dogs, and friends. I hike, read, bike, practice yoga, and meditation, and paint with acrylics and oils.

    As a therapist, I educate on coping skills and provide insight on changing negative/anxious thought patterns. My focus is not to provide every answer but to give you room for reflection and openness to considering/identifying alternative perspectives. I strive to be an excellent critical listener, holding hope for your growth and change while providing non-judgmental acceptance. My work is strengths-based: focusing on positives while balancing/considering current difficulties and desired changes.

    I provide services for teens/young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, and OCD through teaching to connect thoughts, feelings and actions and challenging negative thought patterns. My experience in counseling young children and their caregivers has led to a unique understanding of how past experiences and relationships can impact symptoms as well.
    Our work together will include learning specific strategies for your daily life. As you practice the techniques we discuss in my office, I will assist in examining thought patterns and using active problem solving. Engaging in this work will give you many active strategies to support your path to a healthier life.

  • Lisa Fedora
    MA, LP

    I went into counseling with the relatively young mindset of a simple desire to help people. This started in third grade, when I was curious about what motivated people's behaviors and emotions. I am now a clinician with over 20 years experience in the world of mental health, trying to help people simply feel better as all of us journey through life. I have been specifically trained in DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing Therapy) and TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy). I sincerely enjoy connecting and working with people in order to find solutions to issues, relationships, or situations that are life-interfering. 

    Outside of work one can find me busy being a wife as well as a mother of two children and 2 Brittany spaniels, who enjoys spending time with friends as well as hiking in the woods, cooking, reading, singing when I can and spending as much time as possible at the family cabin.

  • Mary Ann Marchel
    Ph.D., LICSW

    As a therapist, one with deep roots in infant and early childhood mental health, my goal is to harness the capacity in each client to establish a sense of personal well-being. My sense is that this is best accomplished in the context of “the relationship”. Therefore, my work is framed by attachment-based approaches and most often engages the caregiver or other relational partners in the therapeutic session(s). I am faculty member at the College of Saint Scholastica in the Masters of Social Work Program, following 20 years of work as an assistant and associate professor in the University of Wisconsin and Minnesota systems. Additionally I serve as an early childhood mental health consultant to the Duluth Head Start and the First Year Programs. My training and experiences span early childhood studies, early childhood special education, social work and infant mental health. I completed the University of Minnesota’s Infant and Early Childhood Mental Health Certificate Program, the Strange Situation Protocol, and the Adult Attachment Interview analysis training. My approach to therapy draws from several evidence-based approaches in children’s mental health including the Circle of Security Parenting DVD, the Brazelton Newborn Behavioral Observation System, and the Parent-Child Interaction Feeding and Teaching protocol. Further, I apply arts-based approaches in working with children/families who have experienced trauma.
