Danelle Rohweder, MHP
Hello! I am Danelle and would love for you to hear a little bit of my story which will hopefully encourage you to come share your story with me! I enlisted in the Air National Guard in 2003 and subsequently completed my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Services at Metro State University in 2008. In my years of service, it has been apparent that there is a need for veteran mental health providers that understand the many challenges of military service. Not only do I serve but am also a military spouse and recognize those unique challenges. Overcoming my own personal life challenges inspired me to the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Bethel University. I welcome diversity, including all abilities, races, sexualities, genders, religion, and political values. My professional areas of interest include trauma and PTSD, couple and family issues, grief and bereavement, anxiety, and Christian counseling.
I live in the south metro with my husband and two daughters. As a dual military and blended family, we embrace as much family time as possible with my daughters, step-children, and grandkids. I enjoy spending Minnesota’s short summers outside in nature, especially soaking in family time at the lake by swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, and campfires.
Each of us are uniquely made and therefore have different responses to life's challenges. The recent pandemic has taken a toll on us all, being laid off or working from home, kids out of school and learning at home from parents that are already struggling with day-to-day life, and the fear and anxiety of wondering if things will ever be normal again. I strongly feel that we all need someone to talk to that can provide a different perspective on the challenges we face. I take a collaborative approach in counseling as I strongly believe that we all have the inner strength and capability to change our life story.
