My name is Cindymarie Mcpipe and I have been a licensed graduated social worker. I am currently working toward obtaining my LICSW within the next six months. I graduated from Metropolitan State University with my Bachelors in Social Work and obtained my Masters Degree in Social Work from Saint Cloud State University. I have 14 years of experience working with Veterans at the VA Medical Center. I also have 6 years of experience working with Hennepin County as a social worker. My experience at Hennepin County is working with adults and children who have a mental illness and are in crisis.
I enjoy helping others and providing emotional support and allowing clients to speak and openly without feeling judged.
My desire as a counselor is taking a person-center thinking approach. My style as a counselor is providing a supportive and non-judgmental environment to help others find their strengths and to not focus on “fixing” the person. I believe as a counselor no one needs fixing but finding guidance in enhancing their coping skills with new situations and challenges encountered in life. As a counselor I want to enable clients to live a more productive and satisfying life; improve relationships and to assist in making good decisions.
