Dawn Huyge-Opsal, MS, LPCC

Mental Health Professional

I earned my Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology at Bemidji State University in 2013. Through Stellher I have provided mental health services in a variety of settings including schools, daycare, homes, and the outpatient office. My clinical focus has been on early childhood mental health with children ages birth to 5 years. However, I enjoy working with all ages from birth to adult. I joined the Bemidji outpatient mental health team in August 2017.

LICENSURE: Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

SPECIALTY: My additional training has focused on Autism Spectrum Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, OCD, Anxiety, ADHD, and disorders of early childhood. Training has included evidence-based approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Incredible Years parenting programs, Trauma-Informed Child-Parent Psychotherapy (TI-CPP), and Managing and Adapting Practice (MAP). My approach to counseling is to partner with my clients and work as a team, letting clients be in control of the pace of their therapy.
