Approach to Psychotherapy
"I use an integrative approach to therapy, guided by psychodynamic theory and several evidence-based and trauma-informed treatments. I am a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and my primary treatment approach is an eye movement therapy called Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). My clients have seen remarkable results in a short period of time for a wide range of concerns, and I know it can help you, too!
I aim to create a compassionate and collaborative space where, together, we can explore painful or traumatic experiences and resolve them, better understand unhealthy life patterns, and identify solutions to current problems. I believe that the insight you will gain through therapy is a catalyst for finally healing from trauma, restoring autonomy, achieving balance, and improving your overall well-being."

Hello! My name is Dr. Lindsay Murn and I am a Licensed Psychologist in the State of Minnesota. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and Master Certified Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) Practitioner. I received my Bachelors degree in Psychology from St. Cloud State University, and a masters degree in Educational Psychology and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Counseling Psychology from Oklahoma State University. I have over 13 years of clinical and assessment experience with diverse populations across four states. In addition, I have worked with adolescents, young adults, college students, older adults, couples, and groups in community mental health centers, juvenile treatment facilities, college counseling centers, and group/private practices.
My clinical specialties include treating trauma (including, but not limited to, past physical/sexual abuse, sexual or intimate partner violence, accidents, death/loss, significant life disruptions), depression, anxiety, body image and eating concerns, self-worth, identity, interpersonal concerns, and personality disorders. I am also interested in psychological testing.
In addition to my private practice, I work in a university setting providing individual and group counseling and psychoeducational wellness services to college students. I also conduct research on sexual violence, self-compassion, and therapy outcomes.
Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors, reading, traveling, and spending time with my husband, cats, and turtle.
