Meet Danka – Minneapolis Marriage Counselor
I work with couples who love their new (or not so new) family but hate what it has done to their relationship as a couple. Most of them can’t figure out when it all happened or what went wrong and they secretly desire more of what they had before their kids came into the picture.
I show the couples I work with how to get exactly what they want:
– How to spend time together as a family without sacrificing their relationship and forgetting why the two of them liked each other in the first place
– How to move away from having solely conversations about logistical issues to communication that is full of connection & understanding again
– How to put new systems in place given the new circumstances with extra little feet running around
– How to make the two of them a priority again, making it possible even in the crazy-busy life they are living
I’ve got a Master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. I’m certified in Relational Life Therapy to work precisely with couples, having done extensive training under Terry Real. For couples who are considering divorce but unsure whether that is the answer for them, I’ve got training in Discernment Counseling to help with that process. Last, but not least, I am licensed in the state of MN.
And when I’m not in sessions with clients or coming up with the next idea for a blog post, I can be found sipping a Chai Latte at the nearest Caribou, sitting at the piano in our living room with our girls being my biggest fans or searching the internet like crazy for the newest Thai food recipe to use next time our friends come over.
If you are dying to know more, here are five things you wouldn’t know about me just by looking at my picture:
I am pentlingual and plan to add to the list when I live in a foreign country when I retire.
I hate roller-coasters, elevator rides and anything else that involves free-falling – yet flying doesn’t bother me one bit
My ideal vacation includes a plane ticket, foreign currency and authentic food & people
I am a linguist at heart with a Master’s degree in Hispanic Literature – for those of you who care, teaching college-level Spanish classes was my previous life’s passion.
I look forward to hearing from you.
