myHealth has been providing mental health services to young people and their families for 42 years and has seen an increase in demand over recent years. Our staff is happy to talk to young people about a variety of topics, such as anxiety and stress management, body image, gender identity, sexual orientation, risk-taking behaviors, and relationship and family issues. We currently are accepting new clients and do not have a wait list. So if you feel like you need to talk, we’re here and ready to listen.

Individual Counseling

During individual sessions, we will discuss any concerns you have in a safe, confidential space. If you would like to have parents, partners, or other parties join you during your sessions sometimes, that is perfectly okay.

Family Counseling

Therapy can help improve the flow of communication among family members, including immediate and extended family members. By working with the family as a whole, in addition to one on one counseling, myHealth therapists can help families work through difficult issues such as death, divorce and other situations that can bring tension into the living environment.

Carly Gershone,

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Carly has been practicing therapy since 2007.  She used to work at myHealth when we had a location in Excelsior, and loved it so much she came back! She has worked in several different settings, including outpatient, in-home, school-based, and inpatient.  She received a Bachelor’s Degree in Family Social Science from the University of Minnesota and has a Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Lesley University in Cambridge, MA.

Carly has experience working with people who have a wide range of concerns, and especially enjoys working with folks who are dealing with anxiety, panic, OCD, depression, eating/body image issues, self-harm, and relationship/dating issues. She uses techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy and pulls from other types of therapy at times. She is an LGBTQIA-friendly provider. Carly believes that feeling comfortable with your therapist and having a good relationship is the most important thing. She provides a safe, respectful space to talk.

Carly lives in Bloomington with her husband and daughter. She enjoys reading, watching (probably too much) Netflix, music, podcasts, dancing, cooking/baking, and being with friends and family. Her favorite ice cream is the Oreo at Sebastian Joe’s. She has a serious love of the Beatles and The Great British Baking Show and is into pretty much all things pop culture.

You are not alone.

We all feel down from time to time, feel stressed on occasion and can be overwhelmed by anxiety. It is normal to experience all of these at one time or another.
Finding someone to talk to can help sort it all out. At myHealth our counselors specialize in dealing with the issues teens & young adults face today.
When you are ready to talk about what is weighing on your mind, we are here, just a phone call away.

Ask yourself these questions:
  • Do you ever feel really sad, frustrated, or lonely?
  • Do you feel especially angry, annoyed, or out-of-control?
  • Do you feel very anxious, worried, or guilty?
  • Have you experienced some major problems at home, at school, or in your neighborhood?
  • Have you noticed changes in the way you sleep, eat, or think and feel about life?
  • Is it hard for you to talk about these feelings with your family or friends?
  • Are these feelings having a bad effect on your life – are they making your schoolwork and your relationships with family and friends hard?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, it may be a good idea for you to talk with a therapist.
