Hi, I’m Chanel.

I know seeking help can be one of the hardest things anyone can do, so I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for us to process and work through difficult emotions and conversations.
I believe all of us have a story to tell and that story deserves to be heard with compassion. I also believe each person we encounter teaches us something in this life, and I value what each of us can bring to session.
Erin Peterson, Valued Living Therapy in Edina Minnesota specializes in help for trauma recovery, couples counseling, sex therapy, eating disorder recovery, and perinatal and postpartum parenting concerns.

How I Can Help

I utilize a solution-focused and strengths-based approach with an aim to empower individuals to reach their personal goals. I’m passionate about working with individuals to maneuver through difficult transitions in their lives, and helping identify opportunities for growth.
