Dr. Emily Ovrebo, Psy.D., LP
I grew up on a farm in south central Minnesota. Though experiences in my life afforded me the opportunity to live elsewhere in the country, I was happy to return. In 2010, my spouse and I moved to Fairmont where, in 2011, I joined Eunoia Family Resource Center. Since then, I have welcomed two children who have provided me a world of adventure.
I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Hamline University in 2004 with majors in psychology and criminal justice, a certificate in forensic science and a minor in anthropology. I completed my Master of Arts degree in forensic psychology in 2007 at the Center for Forensic Studies at Alliant International University, Fresno, California. I completed my Doctor of Psychology degree in clinical psychology in 2009 at the California School of Professional Psychology at Alliant International University, Fresno, California.
My experiences have included working with families, couples and individuals from varying backgrounds with a variety of difficulties on an outpatient basis. I also have experience providing individual and group therapy, as well as psychological testing, with sexual offenders. I have provided crisis and in-home services to individuals in rural, under-served areas in which access to therapeutic services was limited. I have worked with at-risk youth, both in and out of residential treatment. My current direct clinical care is focused on individuals ages 9 and up. I can provide telehealth services to anyone in Minnesota.
Everybody attends therapy for a different reason, seeking different results. The most important aspect of therapy is your relationship with your therapist, and it is through that relationship that change is possible. I believe each person needs to be treated in a different way, being respectful of each person’s background, experiences and personality. Therapy can be a wonderful experience of learning about oneself in order to change and grow; being open to making changes takes a great amount of strength and courage. Therapy may be brief or long-term, depending on the difficulties and their severity.
