Kathryn Jargo MA, LPCC
Greetings, humans! My name is Kathryn (she/her/hers). I promote mental health and well-being by providing you with the credibility to know you have the tools within, and the confidence to know which tools to use, when.
I am a licensed mental health professional, licensed in Minnesota and Wisconsin, passionate about supporting individuals, couples, and other helpers who need caring, direct, and sometimes blunt reminders of how they can care for themselves. I use a holistic approach, incorporating evidence-based practices, such as eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and mindfulness, to treat adverse trauma responses, reduce anxiety, cope with depression, increase a sense of self, and improve connections with loved ones. Within the therapy, training and clinical supervision settings, I also lean on the power of sarcasm, nature, movement, and obscure pop culture references to help navigate each adventure.
I earned my clinical psychology master's degree through the University of Denver and have worked in non-profit, for-profit, rural, and metropolitan spaces. I am a certified EMDR therapist, have completed Level 1 and 2 of the Gottman training, and have engaged in specialized first responder therapist training. Whether you identify as a caregiver, first responder, part of the LGBTQIA+ community, a rural or city dweller, gamer, athlete, or a combination of all, the care plan we develop comes down to your individual experience with distress, coping and thriving skills, relationships, and areas of growth.
As your therapist I will provide:
A protected space to voice concerns, troubles, or feelings.
Validation of your experiences as well as exploration of how those experiences do not have to define you.
Offerings of personalized, common language to what you may be thinking, feeling, and experiencing.
