Mark Gemmell, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist

For the past 15 years, I have helped a variety of individuals and couples in a range of life challenges and circumstances. Since completing my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the Minnesota School for Professional Psychology (2005), I have worked in clinical settings, large and small, and in three specialized programs dealing with sexual behavior and addiction.

My specialties have sometimes been set as specific career goals, and at other times they simply evolved. My work has also included ten solid years of marriage and couples therapy, which has become a significant portion of my work. It also includes work with clients suffering from a variety of addictions including sex, alcohol, pain and anxiety medications and other substances and behaviors. Clients often come to me for relationship issues, for depression, anxiety and panic, or for simple establishment and clarification of direction and purpose. Problems and challenges are not separate compartments: they are interrelated.

My goal for any client is to navigate his or her way through current impasses, to get unstuck, to become more fully themselves and assume an optimum level of contentment and functioning. As Emerson said: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
