Miriam Itzkowitz, MSW, LICSW
I have a master's degree in social work from the University of Minnesota and a B.A. from Grinnell College. My experience is in counseling adults and adolescents in clinical, home and school settings. In my work I use an eclectic approach to individual, couples and group therapy, incorporating cognitive, creative and holistic techniques to assist clients in sustaining authentic identities, coping with difficulties and overcoming trauma. I am also a clinical faculty member at the University of St. Thomas/St. Catherine University School of Social Work.
I have a master's degree in marriage and family therapy from Argosy University and a bachelor of arts in child psychology from the University of Minnesota. I have worked with youth, adults and families doing in-home, group, individual and couples/partner therapy. I am an experiential, strengths-based therapist, encouraging client strengths while challenging destructive patterns. Creativity, authenticity, healing and laughter are essential parts of my collaboration with clients on problem solving, communication and goal planning.
IS Counseling started out as a thought over 15 years ago while working together at the MN Children's Museum. At that point we knew someday we would follow through with our dream of continuing to work together, hoping to make a difference in this world.
