Meet Us

Amy Vredenburgh, MA, LMFT

Hi! My name is Amy Vredenburgh and I am the owner of Silver Birch Therapy, as well as a therapist specializing in trauma and couples therapy. I also consider myself to be your side kick in emotional expression, oriented to working with high achieving professionals, a guru to help you get unstuck from the tough s*** in life and a couples connoisseur. I work with ages 18 and up and love to use humor, cussing and some gentle…ish nudges to help you do the work. I offer 4 hour and 8 hour blocks of time for EMDR sessions (About EMDR) to help the healing be more effective and efficient.

Some maybe entertaining or ridiculous things about myself: I’m obsessed with tacos and could have them for almost any meal of the day, day….after….day, I get pretty self conscious when I notice my windshield wipers are going faster than someone else’s and I am terrible at deep breathing.  I grew up in Alaska and moved to Minnesota 10 years ago and thought the weather would be more mild. I was wrong.

I graduated with my Bachelors of Psychology from University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2010, my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy Argosy University in 2013 and have been working as a licensed therapist since 2015. I have also been a trained EMDR therapist since 2018 from Life Development Resources, P.A.

Nicolette Ulstrom, MA, LMFT

Hi!  My name is Nicolette Ulstrom and I am a licensed marriage and family therapist.

I believe people have the courage to start to unweave their challenges to find themselves when they have encouragement and support.  I want to support you in finding ways to connect with your true self. I take a side by side approach when finding ways to better support your growth and know that a safe environment is key when looking at the challenges you are experiencing.  I value your experiences in how it shaped how you are today and who you want to become. Learning our stories, we allow ourselves to be able to find how we want our stories to look moving forward. I specialize in anxiety, women’s issues, substance use and personal growth.  I work with ages 18 and up; individuals, couples and families.

Some fun interesting facts about me: I have quite the love for Candy Crush.  The thought of aliens intrigues me and I often wonder how humans and aliens would communicate if/when we cross paths.  I will take chips over desserts any day!

I graduated with my Bachelors of Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls in 2009 and my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy from Argosy University in 2012.  I have been working as a licensed therapist since 2016. I have over ten years of experience working in the field of substance use.
