MSW, Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Lindsey has been providing clinical psychotherapy services to women and families since 2008. She works with adults of all sexual orientations, who experience trauma-related issues, anxiety, depression, anger problems and issues with chemical abuse and dependency.
Therapy is a gift you can give yourself to nurture past hurts, and find hope for the future. Therapy involves the evolution of self.
Lindsey also has a strong interest in reproductive mental health, and has had specific training in perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, pregnancy loss and pregnancy after loss. She also provides training to other professionals in these areas, and is the Executive Director of Pregnancy After Loss Support, an online magazine and peer-to-peer support service.
Much of her work with clients involves concrete skill-building: managing difficult emotion and developing healthier relationships. However, Lindsey’s clients also benefit from her study of complementary therapies and alternative healing practices. She believes that trauma and emotion are stored in the body, and therefore can be eased and relieved via mind/body practices such as mindfulness meditation, massage and acupuncture, yoga and other modalities. She teaches her clients how to soothe emotional pain and increase inner calm via mindfulness activities, breathing techniques and guided imagery.
In her spare time Lindsey enjoys writing and spending time with her daughter and dog, George.
