let’s turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones

Minnesota’s first team-based mental health clinic integrating psychology,
nutrition, sensorimotor & life tools

you are more than a condition –
we treat the whole person

Are you or a loved one struggling?
Desperately seeking relief?

In a typical doctor visit, you may be asked about symptoms and then be given a  one-size-fits-all solution.

Instead, you get some tests done and discover an underlying neurodevelopmental disorder which is being made worse by a nutritional deficiency. Combined, this makes everyday life more challenging, which then leads to more stress. In many cases, medications can provide some relief but you want to address the root cause.

The root cause will only be discovered if your whole person is evaluated, treated, and supported.

the SSC Approach™… whole-person care

Stepping Stone Clinic applies a whole-person, team-based approach to help turn stumbling blocks into stepping stones.

Instead of running through a standard set of tests and one-size-fits-all questions, we look at the whole-person using an interdisciplinary lens. Brain development, genetics, lifestyle, environment, nutrition, and other aspects of daily life are all considered, rather than simply treating symptoms. This comprehensive picture allows us to identify personal strengths and underlying factors contributing to difficulties and concerns. Then, an integrated care team applies this understanding to a treatment plan designed to help patients move past obstacles and go forward with the tools, confidence, and support needed to foster wellbeing.
