Annette Krutsch, Ph.D, LP
Annette is a clinical psychologist working in our Counseling Program.

She grew up in Roseville, Michigan, and her lifelong curiosity about human behavior led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Detroit. Furthering her education, she attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio for four years and completed a fifth-year clinical psychology internship at Long Island Jewish Medical Center/Hillside Hospital.

At home, Annette cherishes her moments with her devoted husband, Rich, and their elderly orange tabby cat, Harvey. Any time shared with their beloved daughters, even simple activities like grocery shopping, brings her immense joy.

Cats or Dogs? Both are great, and it is so unfair to choose between them, but honestly, cats are easier (and that is what I have now).
Quote: “It is what it is.”
What she likes about working for Catholic Charities: Excellent support staff and colleagues who share the mission, along with our Agency’s ability and willingness to meet the needs of clients who could not otherwise afford psychological services, are two of the best things about working at CCSOMN.


Annette’s “happy place”

Gentle walks alone, often listening to music or a podcast, in my neighborhood or around Lake Winona (okay, I admit that in the last year or two, it has been more like “part-way around the lake” ) are good for my heart-  and mental health.

People may not know that if I want them to know something, I’ll tell them. :)
