Dr. Thea Rothmann

(PhD, LP)

About Me

Welcome! My name is Thea Rothmann. I am a licensed psychologist and have been practicing in the state of Minnesota for the last 14 years. I have worked largely in outpatient settings doing therapy and psychological assessment. I have worked with nearly every age group, every presenting issue, and every diagnosis in my practice over the years. I have worked with adults of all ages as well as older adolescents. I also work with couples related to preparation for marriage, recovering after affairs, improving communication and intimacy, and aligning their values and goals.

My master's and doctoral degrees were both completed at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln and there I was trained largely to provide therapy from a cognitive-behavioral perspective. My doctoral internship was completed through the VA and there I learned valuable skills working with trauma and neuropsychological injuries and disorders. The last 15 years of my career have been spent in community mental health centers developing a more generalist practice. I provide therapy to adolescents, adults and couples with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, relationship conflicts, addiction problems, mood disorders, OCD, ADHD, and psychosis. I continue to use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) strategies including newer waves of CBT models like Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in my practice. I am also familiar with Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Exposure and Response Prevention. With couples, I rely on strategies from Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
