Our Staff

Muna Mohamed

Clinical Counselor, MA, LPCC

I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC). I have been working in the mental health field for the past 8 years. I am a firm believer that, with the right guidance, each individual is capable of reaching their potential and actualizing their best self. I am known for my empathic approach and insightful feedback. Some of the modalities I use are cognitive behavioral therapy, client-centered approach, strength-based, play-therapy, internal family systems, and narrative therapy. I also use a culturally responsive approach to incorporate the client’s cultural background and uniqueness.

My areas of focus are trauma with a special emphasis on intergenerational and racial trauma, women’s issues, identity, SPMI (severe and persistent mental illness), and the unique challenges that come with being a refugee or an immigrant. I also speak Arabic and Somali.

I am deeply committed to serving marginalized and under-served communities while striving to provide exceptional therapeutic services. I am always honored when I am entrusted to be part of your healing journey and I look forward to serving you.

Naomi Fernandez Rodriguez

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LGSW

My approach to therapy is strength-based and collaborative, with an emphasis on building a positive therapeutic relationship. I want to create a safe space where you can learn about yourself and reflect on the things that stress you, make you feel misunderstood, alone, or anxious. I want to help you help yourself achieve better mental health and overall a better quality of life.

I am passionate about social justice, diversity, trauma, maternal health, SPMI and issues related to being a minority. I am committed to serving marginalized and underserved communities. I also speak Spanish as a primary language. I hold a Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Minnesota. I am currently licensed as a graduated social worker (LGSW). I have committed the last 5 years of my life to working in the mental health field.

Kowsarina Ahmed

Drug & Alcohol Counselor, MA, LADC

Hello, my name is Kowsarina Ahmed. I am Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) with a Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology. Having served 11 years in the mental health field, I have acquired broad spectrum experience in assisting clients with alcohol and drug addiction, PTSD, domestic abuse, family conflict, grief, and trauma.

Credited by my clients and colleagues for my empathetic approach and insightful feedback, I have facilitated meaningful change in the context of building safe and therapeutic relationships. Favoring a psycho-social, client-centered approach, I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), and Narrative Therapy. As an immigrant who speaks fluent Somali and English, I have excelled at providing culturally sensitive therapy and assisting my clients with adapting to new cultures and dealing with family systems, inter generational and racial trauma, identity crisis, severe and persistent mental illness, and the unique challenges imposed on refugees and immigrants. Deeply committed to serving marginalized and under-served communities, I strive to provide exceptional therapeutic services. I am honored by the trust of my clients and would consider it a privilege to become a part of your healing journey and serve your psychological and emotional needs.

Naomi Rose

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, MSW, LICSW

You may be here because you feel overwhelmed, unhappy, lost, or alone. Nonetheless, you got yourself here. That’s an accomplishment! You are already moving in the right direction. As a therapist, my job is to help you keep moving in that direction and to be your ally. Whatever brought you here, whatever you are seeking, you don’t have to do it alone.

I am a strengths-based therapist, meaning I see you as the expert in your own life. Whereas some therapy might feel problem-focused and heavy, I am committed to reminding folks of all the strengths they possess, even as they identify their struggles.

I am passionate about healthy relationships, both romantic and non-romantic. Having worked as a sex educator for years, I specialize in issues related to sexuality and relationships, from anxiety about dating, to couples’ therapy, to gender and sexual identity issues. I have experience with LGBTQ+, kink, and nonmonogamy communities. I am affirming of all genders and all relationship types. I also have extensive experience working with victim/survivors of sexual violence.

In addition to sexuality and relationships, my clinical interests include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, self-esteem issues, and social skills. Some theories and techniques I often lean on include mindfulness-based practices, experiential and existential therapies, and systems and attachment theories. As a couple’s therapist, I gravitate toward emotion focused therapy.

As a social worker, I consider issues of power, privilege, and marginalization in my work. With case management and advocacy experience, I recognize that there are significant structural and societal factors that cannot be isolated from individual mental health. I strive to make therapy a safe place to explore barriers both internal and external to the kind of meaning you are seeking.

Hodan Jama

Therapist, MA

Hello, my name is Hodan Jama. I hold a Master’s in Counseling and Psychological Services. I have been in the Human Services field for the past three years where I honed my counseling skills and used a client-centered approach to help clients explore their ambivalence and find internal motivation to make meaningful and lasting changes in their lives. I immensely enjoy creating a safe and nurturing environment for my clients to discover their own strengths and gain insight into patterns and behaviors that are affecting their quality of life.

My areas of interest are childhood and racial trauma, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and relationship issues. My approach to therapy is mostly person-centered but I have utilized theories such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy( CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy( SFT), and Narrative Therapy to help clients identify their goals and improve their overall mental health.
