    What I Do
    My treatment approach includes giving patients a language to understand their challenges. With that understanding in place, I teach coping skills, build insight, and maximize strengths to facilitate behavior change and well-being.

    Why I Love My Work
    I chose to go into psychology because I like working with people and enjoy the study of human behavior and the science of behavior change. I feel passionate about improving the lives of children and their families.

    Getting to Know Me
    I enjoy hiking, DIY projects and reading. One interesting thing about me is that I have a twin brother.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

CentraCare care givers have been working around the clock for more than 20 months to care for you, your families and friends during COVID. We are committed to caring for every Minnesotan who needs us, and nothing will prevent us from doing so – even during these never-seen-before times.

The challenge of providing this level of care is that our hospital beds are often full. ERs in all of our hospitals are packed. And our clinical teams are exhausted. Early in the pandemic, our community stepped up in amazing ways to help us. We ask that you again join us in fighting this pandemic together.

How can you help?

  • Please get your COVID vaccines and booster shots. They are proven safe and effective in reducing COVID illness, keeping people out of the hospital, and preventing death.
  • If your situation is not an emergency, please use other care options, including:
  • If this is a medical emergency, call 9-1-1, or visit the ER.

Together, we can do this. Thank you for your support.

Ken Holmen, MD
President and CEO
