Hi, I'm Kelly Haase
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Author and Theologian, Frederick Buechner believed that we are called to a place where our deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet. That is what I found when pursuing a second career in therapy. My own journey has led me to believe that all people have unmeasurable value and worth. It is my deep gladness to be able to sit with others in their hurts and struggles and build a relationship rooted in trust and vulnerability. I believe that at each moment we are doing the best that we can. If that best is no longer satisfying us, we need to learn how to do even better! This is possible through hard work and with the support of a caring therapist.
Prior to my work as a therapist, I spent 12 years working for non profit organizations in pursuit of justice. My heart's desire is to see us live in a space with less hurt, more compassion, and deeper understanding of ourselves and others. I have a Master's degree in marriage and family therapy as well as in theology and am comfortable exploring spiritual questions or supporting those whose pursuit is apart from spiritual beliefs.
When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, kayaking, walking around the Twin Cities lakes, riding my bike, hanging out with friends, drinking good wine, and the occasional Netflix binge of a good TV series.
