Mary Anders earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Nursing from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and in 1980 became a licensed Registered Nurse (RN) primarily working as a psychiatric nurse. Later in 1994, she received her master’s degree in Psychology from St. Mary’s University in Minneapolis, Minnesota and became a Licensed Psychologist in 1998.
Anders has been helping people heal from trauma and loss for nearly 30 years. She has studied many modalities of therapy including EMDR, PBSP, Narrative Therapy, DBT, CBT, FBT and Equine Assisted Therapy. After learning about Accelerated Resolution Therapy® (ART), she found her clients began to heal more quickly, sometimes resolving a major trauma in just a few sessions.
Anders has a private practice in Minnetonka, Minnesota where she sees adolescents and adults suffering from depression, anxiety, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), complicated grief, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, phobias, addictions, eating disorders and relationship issues. In addition, she coordinates the ACAT group in Minnesota.
