Lois Fischer is a Marriage and Family Therapist who works with individuals, couples, and families with children and teens.
My approach to therapy draws upon many different theories and philosophies, incorporating emotional, cognitive (beliefs and attitudes), spiritual and behavioral components. My approach is highly individualistic; that is, I draw on many possible ways to help each client in the way that is most appropriate for him or her as an individual person leading a unique life.
The letters after my name indicate my credentials. I hold a Master’s degree in Counseling and Psychological Services, and I am licensed by the State of Minnesota as a Licensed Psychological Practitioner. I have had specialized training and experience in recovery from trauma and abuse, growing through grief, loss, and life transitions, overcoming anxiety and depression, and balancing life roles. I work with adolescents and adults, helping them with a wide variety of issues, such as: Depression, Adolescent issues, Anxiety Disorders/Phobias, Adjustment Disorder, Anger Management, Bipolar Disorder, Crisis/Trauma, Grief/Loss, Life Transitions, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Parenting Issues, Personal Growth, Relationship Issues, Self-esteem, Stress Management, Women's Issues, and Couples Issues. The work I do with clients is focused on healing from past or present emotional pain, or healing from emotional, physical, or sexual abuse. I help people who want to understand themselves better and who are ready for a change for the better in their lives.
Lois Fischer received a Bachelor of Science degree in Education in 1974 from Minnesota State University, Moorhead, and a Masters in Counseling Psychology in 2004 from Adler Graduate School of Psychology.
