Rosie O’Brien is a Clinical Psychologist and Supervisor at Hamm Clinic. She is a Member of the Psychology Training Committee and Cultural Responsiveness Committee. Rosie earned her MA at St. Mary’s University, and her PsyD at the Minnesota School of Professional Psychology. Rosie provides psychodynamically and relationally informed therapy to individuals and works from an emotional focused and Gottman informed perspective with couples. She provides supervision to trainees in our training program and is currently supervising two post-doctoral candidates.
Rosie thinks the way humans develop and function reflects their experience with early relationships with significant others, and other individual, intergenerational, and cultural factors. Through exploration and reflection, she works to provide a safe and supportive environment in which the client and she can collaborate in deepening the client’s understanding of who they are and what they are experiencing. Rosie works to increase clients’ understanding of how they relate to themselves and to others. Her approach to therapy focuses beyond symptom relief and seeks to increase the ability to cope and develop resources that support new ways of being and relating outside the therapy office. She thinks that therapeutic change happens in the presence of a relatively unconditionally accepting presence of an interactive and interpreting other. Rosie also realizes that we are all cultural beings and as such individual change cannot be separated from how the culture to which an individual belongs changes.
Rosie has special training and/or interest in: grief and loss, anxiety, depression, couples, mindfulness, interpersonal neurobiology, relational work, trauma, and group therapy. Rosie is committed to working from an anti-oppressive framework, understanding the impact of her identities on the clinical relationship, and maintaining cultural humility. Rosie has been licensed since 1998 and has worked in various mental health settings including in-home, community mental health, college counseling and private practice.

Rachel Richardson is a Clinical Social Worker, Psychotherapist, Individual and Group Therapist at Hamm Clinic. She completed her Undergraduate Education at Wesleyan University, 1987 and her Graduate Education at University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine University MSW Program, 1993.
Rachel is involved in a variety of aspects of Hamm Clinic’s work. Primarily she sees individual clients. She also facilitates an interpersonally-focused process-oriented therapy group once a week. In addition, Rachel is one of the social work supervisors, so she provides supervision to social work interns and/or social work fellows each year. In addition, she is involved in supporting some Hamm Clinic events, both internal and external, and serves on the Events and Outreach Committee.
Theoretically, Rachel sees herself grounded in contemporary psychodynamic or relational therapy, meaning that she sees our early relationships, patterns of interaction and experiences as critical pieces of information for understanding our present-day behavior. Rachel integrates theories and therapies to serve the client best. These modalities include cognitive behavior therapy, psychodynamic therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, systems and feminist therapy.
Rachel wants to be open and available to the needs of each client, while trying to hear their needs, both implicit and explicit, and working to understand their story while having them feel her presence, interest, concern, and compassion. Rachel works to develop understanding of their history so that she can serve as a reference point for them as they try to understand their contemporary situation, its historical antecedents and the pain it is causing or creating. When it is working best, Rachel sees therapy as advancing both insight for the client and mobilizing change in their lives. Whenever either insight or behavioral change is stuck, Rachel collaborates with the client and seeks consultation to understand how the therapy needs to change.
Rachel has strong interest in mindfulness and DBT. She has done workshops in both topics over the years and uses both in her therapy work regularly. Rachel has been at Hamm since she interned here 1992-1993; she was then hired in May 1993. Rachel has also worked part time at Augsburg in their Wellness Center.

Lauren (she/her/hers) provides outpatient psychotherapy to a diverse range of clients with mild-severe mental health concerns using individual and couples modalities. She received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. Lauren strives to create genuine relationships with clients where they feel both heard and understood. To do so, she approaches clients with an open mind and aims to meet them where they are in their course of treatment. Lauren’s objective is to create safety with clients so that they may be their authentic selves and work towards change.
Lauren believes problems occur when one’s personal stories are dominated by the views of others or culture at large leaving no room for a person’s preferred story or stories that sufficiently capture or contradict important aspects of the person’s lived experience. In order to produce change, Lauren works collaboratively with clients to separate themselves from their problem-saturated stories. Together, they identify times when the problem was absent, moments of personal strength, protective factors, and resources. Through this process, clients can reduce the influence the problem has on their life, make room for their preferred stories, and rewrite their narratives.
Lauren’s professional interests include identity development and exploration, relationships with self and others, navigating significant life change, working with historically marginalized populations, race-based trauma, managing depression and anxiety, and clinical supervision and training. Lauren has had the opportunity to work in four college counseling centers with both traditional and non-traditional college students, and an outpatient private practice serving the LGBTQ population.

Helen operates from an integrative and person-centered model. She believes that it is important to understand one’s clients in a comprehensive way that accounts for biopsychosocial processes. This encompasses biological make up, early developmental experiences, sense of self, beliefs about others, interpersonal patterns, conscious and unconscious processes. Helen bases her interventions on what clients’ goals and values are and their readiness for change, while keeping in mind whatever realistic limitations they may have. Helen believes clients change when their experiences are understood. This allows them to grieve the past and live a fuller life in the present and the future.

Helen is interested in the topics of identity, personality, and interpersonal relationships. She has training in psychodynamic therapy and CBT. She also has exposure to Motivational Interviewing and DBT. Previously, Helen has worked in: community clinics, general inpatient, psychoanalytic institutes, CBT practicums, middle school settings, as well as with Recovery Model group therapy, skills groups, and process groups.
