Anam Cara


℘ Confidant or Spiritual Advisor,
Friend of the Soul ℘ 

Anam Cara Therapies, a restorative healing and integral therapy practice is located in Minneapolis, MN. Like the Celtic Knot, it’s the culmination of weaving together multiple threads of experience and practice facilitating healing processes. In the Celtic Spiritual tradition, it is believed that forming an Anam Cara bond will support you to fully heal and awaken to your own true nature. ‘Anam Cara’ was for the Celts a concept with a deep meaning. “Anam” translates to “soul”, and “cara” translates to “friend”. We at Anam Cara Therapies seek to offer this kind of connection, compassion, and relational healing.

Dr. Cara Carlson is our founder and lead therapist. Our group of practitioners is formed by Elder Kaia Svien, Elder Teri Parsley, Kara Vangen, April Kaisen, Nathan Paulsen, Fanny Miller, Jennifer Paige, Scott Edgar, Ramia Ali, and Charlie Bouverette.
