Mackenzie Van Remortel (she/her), MA, LMFT

Outpatient Psychotherapist in Southern Village

Works with ages 9-60

Mackenzie is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (2374) at Three Oaks Behavioral Health & Wellness. She earned her undergraduate degree at Bethel University in Minnesota and Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

Mackenzie enjoys working with clients age 10+, teens, adults, couples (or coupling of any kind), and families. She utilizes approaches like EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Attachment, Emotionally Focused Therapy, body/brain connection, behavioral science and faith-based when desired. Primarily drawing from a relational approach, her work incorporates all aspects of self: physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental. Mackenzie believes that through honoring all parts of yourself, the parts that have been hidden, undiscovered, shamed, invalidated, or traumatized can provide relief for all types of concerns. Through her comprehensive approach, Mackenzie helps her clients heal on their past and then develop a plan for their future.

Additionally, Mackenzie understands the vulnerability and bravery it takes to start therapy and considers it sacred to work alongside you. She believes that you are the expert of your story and utilizes a collaborative, trauma-informed approach when working with clients. She finds value in utilizing compassion and humor, along with direct and strength-based approaches in her work to awaken your inner-healing power.

By holding the duality between all that you are - the light and the dark, the resilient and the tender - Mackenzie accepts all parts of you with a non-judgmental stance and curiosity.

Outside of work, Mackenzie enjoys playing soccer, weightlifting, being in nature, traveling, finding her next favorite hobby, and doing twin things.
