Rachel Shoemaker, MA, LMFT, LADC

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a Licensed Alcohol and
Drug Counselor. I believe in treating a person and/or a family through a holistic,
systemic approach to achieve overall healing, not just “ putting a band-aid on it”.

I work with a variety of people from all different walks of life, ages 16 and higher. I
am particularly passionate about helping those who struggle anxiety, depression,
trauma, and personality disorders. I also specialize in addiction and substance
abuse, working to help individuals gain freedom from their addictions and
strengthen themselves in their recovery journey.

I have specialized training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Accelerated
Resolution Therapy (ART), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

hopes of expanding my scope of practice to mothers in addiction recovery. In
utilizing these approaches, I enter into the therapeutic relationship with humor,
validation, and most importantly respect for each individual’s experience.

Mary-Rose Granlund, MSW, LICSW


Eagan Office

I received my Masters in Social Work from the University of Minnesota, and I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker who specializes in early childhood trauma and parenting guidance. I strongly believe in the importance of relationships. I have extensive training in the Developmental Repair model and use Play Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Attachment Therapy. I love to find ways to help families connect and understand each other better using play, especially through games.

I have a holistic, family-centered approach when working with a child's challenging behaviors. I believe that behavior is a language of children, so I help children and their caregivers explore the causes while providing support and solutions that help relieve stress for everyone. Being a caregiver in today's society can feel very difficult. My goal is to help caregivers find the joy in parenting, while also helping children better understand and communicate their needs.

I have over 13 years of experience working with adults, children, and families in a variety of settings. My areas of expertise include working with those dealing with addiction, abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, societal issues, system conflicts, racism, and other life stressors. I work from a holistic, strength-based approach to help guide individuals and families into a space of healing. To acheive this, I utilize a variety of therapeutic approaches focusing on the uniqueness of each individual or family, including Narrative Exposure Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, as well as EMDR.

I hold the belief that client are the experts of their own lives, and am passionate about working with multicultural and marginalized populations. My goal is to foster a partnership with each client to help them on their journey through utilizing the core values of equity, trust, and community. 

Ryan Wohlman, PsyD, LP


Eagan Office

I am a clinical psychologist that has been practicing since 2012; however, priori to that I worked in the mental health world dating back to 2005 at varying levels. My background is in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I have also been trained in EMDR, solution-oriented, and narrative strategies. I enjoy coming alongside people in their journey to get a better understanding of themselves and what their emotions are trying to do for them. I have really embraced the motto that although therapy may help you "feel better", my primary goal is to get someone "better at feeling".

I embrace being a geek and gamer, and enjoy bringing this into my practice. I do quite a bit of work with addictive behaviors, both chemical and non-chemical. As a former video game addict, I also enjoy helping people bring more balance into their daily lives regarding screen use and other process addictions (gambling, shopping, ect). I appreciate the framework of Dr. Mark Griffiths in thie world - helping people experience healthy enthusiasm vs addiction. Enthusiasms add to life; addictions take away from life. 

I typically work with adults and older teens for individual counseling. I enjoy group skills work as well. My goal is to bring respect and a nonjudgmental stance into therapy/group sessions. I also believe strongly in holding space for humor and gratitude. We all have an amazing capacity for renewal and growth. The keys to help us find this change are within us all, and I look forward to the opportunity to help.
