Yoga Therapy and Ayurveda to heal women's bodies, minds, and spirits
Long Business Description:

I'm Jennifer Brandt and I'm a Certified Yoga Therapist for women over 40 who are experiencing discomfort in their bodies and/or minds. I listen to my clients needs and desires and design custom yoga practices that bring all parts of them into balance so they can experience better health and wellness.

1112yoga.JPG

After years of struggling with anxiety and digestive issues, I was diagnosed with Inflammatory Bowel Disease and told I would have to go on some pretty heavy duty drugs. It was my wake up call. I knew I would have to make big changes in my life. I could also see the difficult road ahead advocating for myself in the scary sea of doctors, medications, and procedures. I began working with a Yoga Therapist who gave me a yoga practice that helped bring my body and mind into balance so I could better manage the road ahead.

1080yoga.JPG

It certainly didn’t come easy, but eventually my yoga practice became a part of my routine and I paid closer attention to what my body was telling me. Over time I incorporated more and more yoga tools into my life and eventually it culminated into a healthier lifestyle. Today I am symptom free and continue to stick to my yoga practices to keep myself grounded and healthy.

Traditional yoga practices (including postures, breathing techniques, meditation, visualization, mudra, chanting, and Ayurvedic lifestyle) are powerful tools when applied appropriately. It is my mission to teach these tools to other women who are seeking relief in their bodies and minds.

YOU deserve to feel better!

Short Business Description:
I am a psychotherapist specializing in helping adults age 18 and up with chronic pain and trauma. I also have a special interest in helping neurodivergent/autistic adults and parents/caregivers of neurodivergent/autistic kids.
Long Business Description:

When traumatic events lead to pain, it can be especially difficult to resolve that pain without processing the incident that caused it. Even if there was not a specific trigger, chronic pain often brings with it grief, anxiety, depression, and anger that all exacerbate the impact of that pain.

I specialize in helping people whose stress and trauma affects their chronic pain learn how to effectively process emotions and past trauma in order to reduce pain and emotional distress.

I do this using techniques with proven effectiveness treating chronic pain and trauma, including clinical hypnosis, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Prolonged Exposure therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Additionally, as a mom of three autistic kids and someone who identifies as a Highly Sensitive Person (HSP), I also understand how living in a world that is not set up for you can set the stage for anxiety and trauma that often finds itself playing out in the form of physical issues. I help adults learn to navigate their own needs as neurodivergent individuals and heal from trauma that has occurred, at least in part, by living in a world that does not respect and honor their differences.

I conduct all sessions via telehealth during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in ordinary times I see people in person in my office in St. Paul and via telehealth throughout Minnesota. The easiest way to begin working with me is to go to my website, www.erinbdlicsw.com, and reserve a time for a free 15-minute phone consultation.

Now for my qualifications... I have been in practice for over 10 years. I have the following degrees: Master of Social Work from University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine's University School of Social Work; Master of Arts from Yale University; Bachelor of Arts from Grinnell College.

I hold the following certifications: Diplomate of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy; Certified in Clinical Hypnosis by the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis; Certified in Prolonged Exposure Therapy by the Center for the Treatment and Study of Anxiety.

I have given presentations on chronic pain and trauma at the Autism Society of Minnesota annual conference, National Association of Social Workers Minnesota State Conference, HealthEast Spine Symposium, and the Minnesota Holistic Medicine Group.

I look forward to hearing from you!

(she/her)

Dr. Cassandra is an experienced acupuncturist and herbalist. She has supported patients with eye health, migraines, chronic headaches, seasonal and esoteric alignment, allergies, stress, anxiety, depression, grief, digestion, oncology side effects, reproductive health, immune support, the common cold, injury recovery, pain management and so much more.

After earning her Master’s degree in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) from the American College of Traditional Chinese Medicine she went on to study in the Doctorate of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine program at the California Institute of Integral Studies before moving to the Twin Cities. Dr. Cassandra then completed her Doctorate of Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine with Pacific College of Health and Science after getting her practice in Minnesota off the ground. In addition to her extensive studies, she has completed clinical internships in Family Medicine, East Asian medicine Oncology support, and Macular Regeneration.

She was originally drawn to acupuncture after receiving treatment at what would become her school clinic in San Francisco, CA. Her experience with acupuncture inspired her to change her whole life for the better. As a lifelong artist, Dr. Cassandra has always tried to create healing moments in the world through reflection. Some paths that inspire her are intersectional feminism, gender and queer studies, respectful parenting philosophies, anti-racism, social justice, environmental activism, body positivity, inclusive spirituality, harm reduction, and ways to improve both allopathic and natural holistic medical spaces. It is an ever changing, growth oriented, reflective process that influences her artistic endeavors, and her healing practice. Acupuncture, herbalism, and her healing practices feel like a natural and direct extension of that creative desire.

Short Business Description:
I am a double board-certified physician specializing in providing integrative medicine for oncology patients. In collaboration with the Allina Health Cancer Institute oncology team, I offer face-to-face or virtual visits for patients. The recent advances in targeted therapies and molecular oncology have resulted in new hope for patients and many have already shown promise in improving outcomes. There remains, though, a need to address common issues such as chronic fatigue, anxiety, sleep disorders, and fear of recurrence. This gap in supportive care is due to the lack of access to high quality integrative care, which leaves patients at risk as they make unguided decisions in the most vulnerable time of their lives.
I hope to bridge this gap by providing holistic, individualized care, and adopting healing strategies that are patient centered and evidence-based. My two year Integrative Medicine fellowship, as well as my experience as a physician who has partnered with many cancer patients for supportive wellness, has made me appreciate the impact a holistic approach on not just how patients adapt to their diagnoses and therapies, but also how hard clinical endpoints can be positively affected.

I’m interested in partnering with people to help them safely navigate and use the best of what integrative and conventional medicine both have to offer. I provide help with chronic health concerns and guidance on creating wellness plans that will prevent disease, and optimize health and vitality. I'm passionate about: using food as medicine and exploring how stress, sleep, spirituality, relationships and the environment are all connected to health and what to do about it. A challenge of my career I enjoy is: deeply listening to the whole story and discovering what factors may be contributing to why someone has a disease or symptoms. Then taking a step further and guiding people through the complexity of making lifestyle changes that will work for them.

The best thing I've done for my health is: to eat more healthy fat and protein, and eliminate a food that was causing symptoms.

Short Business Description:
Maureen Rose Doran specializes in integrative nutrition, a science-based “food as medicine” therapy for prevention and treatment of chronic and degenerative diseases. She has a bachelor’s degree in foods and nutrition. Doran advocates “food first,” recommending whole, clean foods that serve to nurture, strengthen and heal the body. When foods cannot provide all the nutrients necessary for optimal health, evidence-based supplements are utilized.

Doran also maintains a teaching practice in Kundalini yoga and mindfulness-based meditation, providing therapeutic instruction to both individuals and groups. Blending nutrition, yoga and meditation, Doran has developed a transformational mind/body program for weight management. This refreshing non-diet approach provides freedom from compulsive, destructive eating patterns and supports a happier, healthier relationship with food and body.

Practice philosophy: As an integrative nutritionist, I use "a food as medicine" approach to help people achieve improved health. Whether for general health, or disease prevention or management, I can meet you where you are to work on large or small dietary and lifestyle changes and goal setting.

Best part of my work: Through my experiences with functional and integrative nutrition, I find that patients are much more engaged and excited about taking control of their health.

Why I became a provider: I became an integrative nutritionist because even though I ate healthy and exercised on a regular basis, I still didn't feel that I had great health. After doing more research and finding other like-minded health professionals, I found whole foods and specific supplementation helped me to have more energy, sleep better and have mental clarity. In addition, I have a close family member with ADHD who has been helped greatly through dietary changes, nutrition supplementation, and working with an integrative pediatrician.

Rosen Method bodywork and Movement

Rosen Method bodywork practice gentle, listening meeting touch to bring awareness to unconscious holding in the body. If we have tension when we aren’t actively using our bodies, what is that tension doing for us? We explore this question together noticing sensation, the way we come to the present moment, with support, to be with our most essential selves.
Rosen Movement is a fun, easy going, joint mobilization class. We use music, which stimulates our moving in synchrony to a variety of rhythms. We move in a circle enhancing connection and a sense of community.

Movement Sanctuary
A practice of moving to access the unconscious through the simple form of moving, eyes closed, with a non-judgmental witness, eyes open. We share our own experiences after a movement session, taking great care to know it is our own experience only. Insights, shifts, and resolutions within our bodies and minds are often the result.

I have studied Somatic Experiencing which focuses on trauma resolution by learning to track body sensation and resolution naturally.

I have been practicing touch work since 1984. I have studied many touch and movement modalities over 35 years. I continue to learn and be awed by the miraculous beings we all are. Our body, mind and spirit are interconnected, as is our connection to all life on our planet. It is important to me as white middle class cis gendered woman, to approach the healing of racial, developmental, relational, racial, historical, and sexual trauma through the body. Being able to metabolize/naturally process our body responses enables us to be more present, capable, and resilient in our immediate lives.

I founded the Snoring and Sleep Apnea Dental Treatment Center in 1992.
Since that time my knowledgeable and caring team and I have been helping patients with snoring and sleep apnea problems. We work closely with the sleep medicine physicians to coordinate your care and improve your sleep and your health. We utilize oral appliance therapy to manage snoring and sleep apnea for patients who are not good candidates or cannot tolerate CPAP. We are one of the few full-time dental sleep medicine practices in the country. Since we have extensive experience in this therapy, we are able to customize the therapy to increase successful results for patients.
We believe our first responsibility is to inform and educate our patients. We review the evaluation findings and explain the risks, benefits, and reasonable expectations of the different treatment options with each patient. We guide patients in deciding which oral appliance will be most effective and comfortable for their situation. Then we work closely with them in follow-up visits to ensure the comfort and effectiveness of their treatment. This comprehensive approach is important to achieving a successful treatment outcome.

The gentle movements and postures gather and circulate our internal energy or Qi so that we can maintain stronger immune systems and a greater sense of inner tranquility. This is especially important if we are faced with chronic, degenerative or life-threatening illnesses. Whatever condition or state of being we find ourselves tai chi and qigong can support us.
