Cindy Meyer, MA, LMFT, LADC

When working with clients I often follow a Solution-Focused Therapy approach that is centered around the belief that clients are the experts of their own lives and as a therapist it is my role to support clients in identifying their problems/goals they would like to work on in therapy. Since 2005 I have worked with children, adolescents and adults struggling with a variety of challenges such as depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, addiction, family strain, low self-esteem/confidence, parenting, grief/loss, trauma, and life transitions.

I have a passion for teaching Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) Skills and often incorporate those skills into my sessions with clients to give them skills they can use right away.
My goal is to provide clients a safe, confidential space where they genuinely feel supported and inspires hope for them as they navigate through challenges they may be experiencing.

As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC) I am able to offer Chemical Health Assessments to those seeking them for personal, professional or legal reasons. My graduate training in addiction studies allows me the opportunity to work well with family members who are seeking a therapist with a greater understanding how addiction can impact the whole family/system.

Additionally, I am trained in other modalities of therapy such as Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) and Sand Tray to support clients in areas of trauma work and other areas of mental health.

Trying to choose the right therapist can be difficult, please feel free to reach out with any questions to determine if I would be the right fit for you.

As your therapist, my goal is to create a safe and comfortable space for you to feel heard and understood. You will be treated with empathy, warmth and kindness as you navigate through, and process the challenges and struggles in your life. 

I enjoy working with children, adolescents and adults with a variety of concerns, such as; anxiety, depression, substance use and trauma. I also have experience working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. 

When working with clients I enjoy using a client-centered and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) approach to support clients in reaching their goals. 

As a Licensed Alcohol and Drug Counselor (LADC), I have experience conducting chemical health assessments and working with individuals with substance use concerns.  If you or someone you know is seeking a chemical health assessment/Rule 25 I would be glad to schedule an appointment for an assessment.  If appropriate, ongoing therapy can be scheduled as well.

I completed my Master’s Degree in Counseling and Psychology from Saint Mary’s University – Minnesota. Prior to that I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Certificate in chemical dependency counseling (LADC).

Emily Hahn-Carlson, Mental Health Practitioner/Graduate Intern

My training at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota in the Marriage and Family program has led me to see through a systemic lens, meaning I see issues as part of a system rather than confined to an individual. As your therapist, I want to provide a space for you to feel safe, valued, understood, and respected. I believe you are the expert on your own life, and my role is to help you process, build coping skills, and develop strategies for lasting change.
Healing is something which happens in layers and is a process, one which we can navigate together. You bring readiness for change, and I will bring empathy, attention, respect, and a safe space for you to process.
I enjoy working with children, adolescents, adults, couples and families with many different issues, in particular I have a significant amount of experience working with those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Emily is under the supervision of Cindy Meyer, MA, LMFT, LADC
