Elora Riggs-Lyksett, MA
Elora graduated from Saint Mary's University with a Masters in Counseling and Psychological Services. Prior to and throughout her graduate studies, she worked for a local nonprofit as an Advocate and Community Mental Health Administrator, serving individuals and families experiencing family violence, sexual exploitation, trauma and addiction. She believes that oftentimes people come to therapy because they want to heal and that healing can happen through a trusted connection with a therapist; she moves at the pace of trust. She strives to provide empathic and authentic care to individuals 13+, families, and couples. Her approach to therapy is integrative and collaborative. Her belief in treating each person individually and holistically mean she pulls from a variety of therapeutic techniques such as skills based therapies like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy as well as Person-Centered, Strength-Based and Feminist approaches through the lens that is trauma informed. Elora lives in Burnsville with her husband and two dogs, affectionately known as fur-babies, Bailey and Luna. Currently Luna is a young pup, growing and learning with hopes of being a therapy dog someday.
