Welcome! Let's chat.
Change can be easier said than done. My name is Meena Statz and my practice centers around empowering you to put those change thoughts into action. I am a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (2010) and a Wisconsin Licensed Professional Counselor (2013), and a Minnesota Licensed Clinical Counselor (2022). I specialize in helping adults, families, and teens address mental health concerns, achieve behavioral goals, navigate life transitions, and cope with disability/chronic illness. I am client-centered, meaning you make your goals and together we decide how you will achieve them. I utilize talk therapy, mindfulness, art/creative outlets, and other strategies that work for you.
As a therapist, coach, and wellness provider; I believe that social justice is critical and am dedicated to promoting racial equality and creating safe spaces for those who identify as LGBTQA. I also specialize in working with Second Generation Immigrants of Asian descent and African American women. I actively work towards creating a decolonized practice that addresses inequalities in the mental health system, as well as privilege in the provider-client relationship.
As a regular everyday person, I love reading, photography, being outside, and yoga. My husband and I try to get out into the woods as much as possible with our son and two dogs. I am a Second Generation Indian American and my hometown of Racine, WI is famous for the best Kringle in the country; and I will never pass up a good batch of cheese curds.
I believe everyone has the right to be happy and fulfilled in life; therefore, I offer unique pricing options and currently do not accept insurance. I prefer to spend the majority of my time with my clients and this method allows me to be able to do so.
Please email using the form or call to schedule a consult with me. I look forward to hearing from you!

"I am a 24 year old woman that started with Meena Statz because I needed to control anxiety. I now have realized that I not only have anxiety but other things such as PTSD. She has helped me realize that what I am feeling is normal and I was going once a week and was now recently able to transition to once every two weeks. This experience has made me talk about uncomfortable situations and events but she made me feel completely comfortable and is one of the best listeners. I will continue once every two weeks to be able to express my emotions. Meena has been very helpful with me and therapeutic talk has been a perfect coping mechanism for me."
My new blog will highlight the mental health and wellness needs of women, the LGBTQIA+ community, and women of color. I will also provide invaluable resources to help you navigate behavioral health services.
In India, chaat is a small savory appetizer that is served to get our appetite going for dinner. Who doesn't like a good samosa with your meal?!
This blog is a thoughtful chaat designed to get the conversation started. It's a jumping off point for exploration and community creation.
We can't wait to hear from you.
