LAURA EHLERT, PSY.D.

Laura Ehlert, Psy.D., is a child clinical psychologist who has worked with children and adolescents with severe emotional/behavioral issues for over 30 years.  She maintains a private practice in Burnsville, Minnesota where she specializes in working with clients who struggle with information, executive functioning and sensory processing deficits, and their associated emotional, behavioral and mental health issues.  Dr. Ehlert has worked with thousands of youth in a variety of settings including hospitals, residential treatment centers, partial hospital programs, school day treatment and outpatient mental health settings.  She holds a doctorate degree in clinical psychology where her training focuses on developmental issues of childhood, and child psychopathology issues.



Professionals who have worked with Dr. Ehlert in the past have often commented that the perspectives and interventions she offers succeeded where others have failed.  All behavior has function and is goal driven.  Therefore, our understanding from the child’s perspective and being able to collaborate with the child to better know what information they do or don’t have in any difficult situation, is vital.  If you want to resolve the problem that is creating the difficult behavior, you must first understand what is behind that behavior.
