John Braun, MA, MHP
Hello! My name is John Braun. I have always had a desire to understand why we think the way we think and feel the way we feel. While I studied psychology in my undergrad at the University of St. Thomas, I developed an ever-growing appreciation for all the complex and beautiful parts of ourselves including our very thoughts and feelings that make each and every one of our experiences unique. My desire to keep learning has led me to the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.
My philosophy is this: You matter, and you are worth every minute that it takes to help you in whatever difficult circumstances, road bumps, unexpected events, and overwhelming feelings you are experiencing at this time to get you to where you want to be. I am here to be your support and guide you as you face what it is you are encountering right now. I want to work with you, walk with you, and challenge you to help you attain the freedom to be yourself and achieve the vision you have for your life.
I am happy to incorporate faith and spirituality into our sessions and am not afraid to delve into big life questions. No topic is off limits.
A little more about me: I am a Catholic. I am a husband and father. I love the great outdoors and have an ever-growing list of hobbies ranging from waterskiing to rock collecting. I cherish spending quality time with my family and friends and am always up for an adventure!
