‘A calm place where people get help’

Northern Lights Therapy rejuvenates itself so it can rejuvenate others

They’ve expanded and spiffed up the place, but Brianna Reinhold said the mission of Northern Lights Therapy, her counseling service, has not changed.

“We’re just working on healing the community,” Reinhold, a licensed professional counselor, said during the grand re-opening ceremony Jan. 14. “We just want that calm place that people can go to get the help that they need.”

Northern Lights expanded and upgraded its lobby and therapy offices and added a play therapy room.

While proceedings had a festive feel, that is a departure from the serious nature of her work with patients in distress over challenging life problems.

Reinhold is a certified first-responder counselor. She has extensive background in criminal justice.

She says she especially enjoys working with children and anyone experiencing past trauma – including those traumatized by officer-involved shootings and line-of-duty deaths. Her patients include those experiencing substance use, serious mental illness, inappropriate sexual behaviors including addiction to pornography and violent offenders.

Reinhold said she strives to “meet you where you’re at,” but adds that her job is not to give answers, but help patients feel confident that they can find answers within themselves.
