Lydia Fruth

Lydia Fruth is a Psychotherapist Intern finishing her Master’s Degree in Counseling at Crown College. She has over six years of experience working with teenagers and adults in a social service setting and is looking forward to providing care to teenagers, couples, and adults with a variety of needs. The trauma and loss in her own life led her to pursue counseling to work through the disappointments of life, trauma, emotional abuse, and the failed adoption she experienced.

Lydia primarily uses cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused approaches, and is trained in the Immanuel Approach. Her special interests include helping women who have or are enduring trauma, marital discord or affairs, divorce, adoption issues, and abortion recovery. She also works with clients experiencing depression, anxiety, questioning their faith, and stress management. Her faith in Jesus as the true healer guides her as she works with clients.

In Lydia’s free time, she enjoys camping, hiking, and traveling with her husband. 

To be a blessing to the community, Lydia is seeing clients free of charge for those who either have no insurance or the ability to pay. Lydia will be available Tuesdays and Wednesdays working out of the Elk River and Monticello offices.
