    What I Do 

    I want my patients to know that I am here to work with them, and I believe they have many skills and abilities to manage whatever is happening in their lives. I am here to help my patients build and strengthen their skills and find ways to continue growing as a person.  

    I believe that building a relationship with my patients is the most important focus of therapy. It is not easy for anyone to seek help, including children and teens, and being able to share personal information comes with building a relationship of honesty and trust with your therapist. I also believe that many emotions and behaviors come from a protective place and approach my patients’ difficulties from a strengths-based perspective. I work with parents and families to help identify the function of a child or teen’s behavior and help them make changes that lead to healing and growth.  

    My clinical interests include trauma, multicultural understanding, anxiety and depression. 

    Why I Love My Work 

    I have always been interested in people and their life stories and noticed that children and teens are usually much more perceptive and have much more to say than adults may realize. What I enjoy most about my job is being given the chance to hear someone’s story and provide patience, understanding and validation in working together to help them find their way. 

    I appreciate the wide range of experiences of my patients and their families. I have learned so much about hunting, farming and navigating small-town communities during my time at CentraCare. 

    Getting to Know Me 

    I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors and family time with my daughter and husband.

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
