Our Mental Health Therapy Services at Mendota Heights

#LiveAuthentic With Professional Counseling Services

Ellie Mental Health in Mendota Heights, Minnesota isn’t your average therapy clinic. We’ve created a comfy, judgment-free zone where you can be authentic, get real about where you’re at in your mental health, and receive the compassionate care you deserve. We strive to break down treatment barriers and provide you with customized counseling services that meet your therapy needs.

Individual Therapy

Work one-on-one with a therapist who will provide you with mental health care individualized to your needs. Whether you are seeking treatment for a mental illness, support for a recent life change, or help in a specific area of your life, individual therapy is just between you and your therapist.

Couples Therapy

Attend therapy session with your partner – whether you’re just dating, engaged, or married. Couples therapy is a safe place to talk through relationship issues with a counselor you can trust, get help navigating a divorce, or build a strong foundation for the future.

Online Therapy

Attend therapy from the comfort and convenience of your home, or wherever else you have an internet connection. With online therapy, you get deep with your therapist while sipping tea in your favorite comfy chair, snuggled in your pajamas, or between work meetings.

Virtual Reality Therapy

Take control of fear and anxiety with virtual reality therapy. VRT is a cutting-edge new therapy method that uses virtual reality to help expose and desensitize your brain to fear triggers. This therapy type is available for anyone age 14 and older. 

Family Therapy

Work through family conflict with a therapist who can facilitate the conversation, work through harmful patterns, and improve communication skills. Family therapy is a group effort – bring your partner, the kids, the in-laws, stepchildren, your siblings, or whoever else is involved with your family dynamic.

CTSS

Get support in helping children manage mental health symptoms and learn rehabilitative skills to set them up for success down the road. This mental health service provided by a Children’s Therapeutic Services & Support therapist is a team effort involving both children and their families.

In-Home Therapy

If physical health, significant mental health symptoms, or socio-economic limitations are keeping you or your loved one from accessing the treatment you need, we offer in-home therapy. We work with a variety of concerns that affect multiple age groups.

Medication Management

If a combination of therapy and medication management is the right treatment path for your mental health needs, our psychiatric prescriber can prescribe, evaluate, and manage your medication. Our prescribers work closely with your therapist to ensure you are receiving the best treatment possible.

Play Therapy

Children are not immune to emotional or psychological challenges, and younger kids may struggle to express difficult emotions or talk about trauma. Play therapy allows children to process and express how they’re feeling, learn healthy coping skills, and strengthen behavioral and communication skills.

Grief Therapy

Loss and bereavement can be immobilizing. You might not know how to move forward or what comes next. Grief therapy provides you with professional support as you work through loss, process any trauma, and navigate next steps.

Trauma-Informed Therapy

Work through unresolved trauma and identify the areas of your life that trauma has impacted. Trauma-informed therapy means working with a therapist who has a deep understanding of the may ways trauma can affect your life and your overall sense of self, safety, and well-being.

Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing Therapy

EMDR is a cutting-edge, evidence-backed treatment approach for treating trauma, anxiety, depression, and a wide range of mental health disorders. EMDR therapy often involves you talking about your trauma while moving your eyes back and forth to reprocess the traumatic experience.

Psychedelic Therapy

When in the hands of therapists, physicians, and nurse practitioners, psychedelics can be used as an integrative healing approach that opens the mind and helps with a wide range of mental health disorders. INTERO provides psychedelic therapy in Minnesota.

Meet the Mendota Heights Clinic Director

Heather Reidinger, MA, LMFT, BMFT

Clinic Director, Therapist

Heather is a supportive, empowering and collaborative therapist, with 15 years of experience in the mental health field. In that time, she has worked with individuals, couples, groups and families to help build better communication, explore more opportunities for personal growth and purposeful solutions to a client's everyday needs. Her diverse work experience in both clinical and hospital/crisis-based mental health has shaped her appreciation and compassion for her clients, in having the courage to seek support. Primary therapeutic approaches that Heather utilizes include: systemic, existential, Cognitive Behavior Therapy, narrative, walk/talk/mindfulness therapy.  She is honored to walk along with individuals (10 yrs old and up), families, and couples on their therapeutic path. She especially enjoys working with adolescents and young adults, as this is a time of vulnerability, growth and such resilience. Special areas of interest include: Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, self-harm/suicidal ideation, LGBTQ+, post-partum/fertility issues, trauma, and family therapy. “Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper and more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.” – Brené Brown Read More
