Mind Matters Support Group

It can feel lonely and frustrating to live with a brain injury. We want you to know you are NOT alone. This is why Progressive Therapy Associates is proud to host Mind Matters, a monthly brain injury support group. You do not have to be affiliated with Progressive Therapy Associates to attend these meetings. This is free and open to the public. We welcome new comers at every meeting! You can come one time or every meeting if you'd like. No obligation. We look forward to seeing you one day soon!

We typically meet in person at Progressive Therapy Associates monthly, but currently this is available as an online support group via Zoom. Patients with a brain injury learn that they aren’t alone in their journeys. Attendees not only learn great coping tips and resources, they benefit from sharing experiences, gaining advice, and receiving a listening ear with people in similar situations. The group meets the first Thursday of each month from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. Check out our Progressive Therapy Associates page on Facebook for updates on our monthly support group topics. Feel free to call our office at 701-356-7766 with any questions or to be added to our mailing list.

Mind Matters Support Group
Qualified therapists

Our dedicated team of speech-language pathologists are specially trained in speech therapy as it relates to cognitive-communication issues (how you listen, process, focus, remember, and communicate). We are also nationally certified by the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association, are nationally recognized by the Brain Injury Association of America and are Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS). We are licensed to practice in both North Dakota and Minnesota. We believe every patient deserves the best treatment and support we can offer in every single contact and interaction with us.

Individual approach

We recognize that no two people have the same needs and that everyone has different learning styles. That’s why we like to call our approach “the Progressive way,” which means we will happily customize treatment plans to meet the unique needs of the individual and their family. We also believe in “the right fit” between patient and therapist, so will make every effort to match you with a clinician who connects with you, understands you, and utilizes a therapy style that is comfortable for you.

We are here to help

Depending on the goals you wish to accomplish and the learning pace that is most comfortable for you, we will arm you with the evidence-based strategies, proven skills and ample support you need to feel more organized, prepared and effective. Therapy strategies may range from recommendations for specific tools (such as timers or planners), one-on-one brainstorming and problem-solving to address concerns, therapeutic activities as well as computer trials or worksheets to help strengthen cognitive and executive functions like attention, memory, and planning.

Coaching with compassion

We know that working on cognitive-communication issues is hard work and that it can be easy to feel defeated or overwhelmed by the challenges of building a more efficient brain. However, you will not be in this alone. We are not just speech-language pathologists; we are fellow human beings who care about you, your journey, and your success. We don’t want an appointment to feel like you’ve been sent to the principal’s office. Instead, you’ll find a comfortable space where you’ll feel listened to and understood. And because humor makes everything more bearable, be prepared to laugh and joke a bit too!
