Free Yourself from Stress & Anxiety

Therapy for Teens & Adults
St. Louis Park & Minneapolis, MN

You feel disconnected from your friends, family or partner.

You're constantly busy but never feel like you're doing enough.

You're dealing with high amounts of stress, your worry keeps you up at night, and you have difficulties saying nice things to yourself.

Life is overwhelming and it's bringing you down. 

You Can Feel Better

You are here because you are seeking relief. 

If you are feeling increasingly stressed, anxious, insecure, or immobilized by perfectionism, you have come to the right place.

I help stressed and anxious perfectionists, overthinkers and

self-doubters get unstuck and find balance.

Samantha Praus

Welcome to Praus Guidance & Healing. I'm Samantha, a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I specialize in working with teens and adults with heightened stress and anxiety. I know first-hand what it's like to experience daily worry, fear, overthinking and self-doubt. I also know what it's like to come out on the other end feeling more peaceful and in control. I'm direct, honest, caring, goofy and genuine, and I'm invested in my clients. 

Take a look around and if you like what you see, connect with me by email or phone, or schedule a 15-minute phone consultation. I'd love to help you get started!
