A new therapy office at 812 E. 48th St. is seeing lots of interest in a gender identity support group and couples counseling.

“It’s a reflection of the neighborhood and the value that South Minneapolis puts on relationships,” said co-founder Kori Hennessy.

The therapists are working to smooth life transitions for new parents, empty nesters and retirees. They’re also helping people work through infidelity and financial difficulties.

Hennessy, a Kingfield resident, specializes in traumatic events, including sexual violence. Co-founder Alexa Tennyson lives closer to Uptown and specializes in the LGBTQ community and transgender clients.

“We both take a stance that when we work with people, the clients’ viewpoint is centered,” Hennessy said. “We love South Minneapolis and wanted to stay in South Minneapolis.”
