Walk-in Counseling and Referral Services Now Available in St. Paul
Over the past several months, The Emily Program St. Louis Park office has offered walk-in counseling and referral services to our adult clients. As of May 6th, we'll offer this same service to adult clients at our St. Paul location, 2265 Como Ave.

Service Overview:

The Walk-in Counseling & Referral team is made up of a group of therapists who are experienced in the treatment of eating disorders and crisis intervention. Walk-in counseling is not intended to take the place of individual therapy. Instead, it is a service offered to help clients in emergency situations through support, feedback, and referral to services outside The Emily Program that will promote stabilization.


Walk-in services can be utilized when a client experiences an increase in the severity of depression, anxiety, suicidal/homicidal thoughts, and eating disorder symptoms. Situational stressors can also be a reason for using walk-in services (example: a conflict at work, loss of a loved one, domestic violence, or consequences of chemical abuse).


The St. Paul walk-in hours (beginning May 6) are:

Monday: 11 AM-12 PM

Tuesday: 1-2 PM

Thursday: 10-11 AM

Friday: 10-11 AM   


Counseling sessions are 30 minutes in length. Clients are advised to arrive 30 minutes before walk-in hours to complete a Needs Assessment.


Depending on the number of clients in need of services, there may be a wait time to see a walk-in counselor. 

Intensive + Lodging Opens in St. Louis Park

On May 8th the newest Intensive + Lodging option will open near our St. Louis Park, MN office. 


Intensive + Lodging offers adult women traveling from long distances a place to stay while participating in our intensive day programs. Individuals are able to enjoy the comforts of home while getting the treatment they need.

TEP in the Community

Minneapolis-St. Paul

Cindy Solberg, a Therapist at The Emily Program will present at The Recovery Church to speak about exploring eating disorder and addiction recovery. This event is open to the public. More details below: 


What: Exploring Eating Disorder and Addiction Recovery

When: Thursday, June 20th at 7 PM

Where: The Recovery Church, 253 State St.,
           St. Paul, MN 55107 

Discussion Overview: Most people are usually very surprised to learn that eating disorders have little to do with food. Especially when one considers that many people who suffer from eating disorders actually have an unhealthy obsession with food. Eating disorders and addiction often come hand in hand as well.  This session will provide a basic level of understanding of the multidimensional nature of eating disorder and addiction recovery.  It will also discuss how someone might learn to have a non-addictive relationship with food.


About the Presenter: Cindy Solberg, M.A., L.P.C., L.A.D.C. works with clients who struggle with both eating disorders and chemical dependency. She provides assessments, group therapy, and awareness of cross addiction to clients and staff.  Cindy received her Master's in Addiction Studies from Hazelden Graduate School and her Bachelor's of Science in Social Work from Metropolitan State University.
