Ellen Zaeske

Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Clinical Nurse Specialist

 

My early work experience as a pediatric intensive care nurse created a heart to work with people that face suffering. As a Christian counselor I believe individuals can determine how their faith is used in counseling. The commitment to counseling is an investment in yourself and your personal relationships.

I use Christ-centered therapy with individuals, families, adolescents, and children. I have a family systems approach and use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Formational Counseling. As a trained Spiritual Director I will search with each client where God is in their situation. Discernment for making life decisions can be a large part of the spiritual direction process.

Areas of Interest: Depression, anxiety, stress, abuse, anger, parenting, divorce, blended families.  Works with children (13 years and older), adolescents, adults, families.

Education & Experience:  Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Minnesota. Master of Education degree in Clinical Counseling – North Dakota State University. Master of Science degree in Marriage and Family Therapy – North Dakota State University. Certified as a Spiritual Director, Christos Center for Spiritual Formation, Lino Lakes, MN. Bachelor of Science in Nursing – University of North Dakota. Member of American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC). National Board of Clinical Counselors. 30+ years experience.
