Essentia Health welcomes social worker in Detroit Lakes

Bobi Spaeth

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker Bobi Spaeth has joined the Behavioral Health Department at the Essentia Health St. Mary's Detroit Lakes Clinic.

As part of the Behavioral Health Team, Spaeth will provide counseling services for adults and children.

"I'm very excited for the opportunity to be a part of a multidisciplinary team of caregivers, with the goal of treating the whole person," she says.

Spaeth earned a master's degree in social work from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, M.N.

"I became interested in behavioral health, and social work in particular, because I really enjoy the idea of identifying strengths in a person and working toward building on those qualities to improve mental health," says Spaeth.
