Denise Meyer, Ed.D., LCPC

Dr. Meyer, LCPC, NCC has a strong and diverse educational and employment background. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree (BS) in Engineering, a Master’s Degree (MA) in Mental Health Counseling, and a Doctoral Degree in Counselor Education and Supervision (Ed.D.). She has a multi-faceted work history in a corporation, and as a psychotherapist in both outpatient counseling centers and private practice. “I believe that life is a journey often filled with unexpected times of change, challenge, and uncertainty. Though they may test our beliefs and our stamina, they offer real opportunities for personal growth and development. These times can be difficult, and quite often individuals can feel isolated and distressed as they walk these paths of their life’s journey. It is in these troubled times that individuals can benefit from the unbiased listening, reflection, and support of an attuned therapist. Counseling can help individuals navigate these unplanned twists and turns of life by offering a new understanding of the issues or situations affecting their lives and relationships, and new coping skills that help them to live more creatively. “

“I enjoy working with a variety of adults from diverse backgrounds, with a broad range of concerns. Particularly, I enjoy working with women and the issues that occur throughout their lifespan. In my thinking, it is the nature of the individual’s concerns and goals that determines the structure of the work that is needed to help my clients achieve their counseling goals. My general approach to therapy is to use a holistic model that views what is often thought of as separate issues as being potentially interrelated and interactive. Put more precisely, a careful consideration of a person’s unique physiological aspects (major physical issues), psychological dimensions (history, motivations, thoughts, emotions, behaviors), and social factors (relationships with family, work life, community) can offer insights that provide the keys to a greater sense of direction and a deeper sense of self-confidence.”

“My clients have described my counseling style as committed, collaborative, and compassionate while being direct, pragmatic, and not without a sense of humor. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, running, water and winter sports, yoga, and volunteer activities.”
