"What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when you bring what is within out into the world, miracles happen."
Henry David Thoreau

Her professional background includes over a decade of experience helping and delivering therapeutic services to adolescents, families, and adults within community mental health centers, inpatient and residential settings, public school, and outpatient settings throughout Arizona and Illinois. Being a passionate advocate for mental health services and support, Lindsey also particularly enjoys providing clinical supervision and consultation to other professionals filling various roles within the mental health community.
Lindsey supports and guides her clients through various conditions and life events, including relationship issues, grief and loss, life transitions, identity and self-discovery, low self-esteem, and struggling with emotional regulation, anxiety, depression, trauma, and navigating experiences related to chronic medical issues. Lindsey is an ally and advocate for the LGBTQI+ community and is experienced working with a diverse range of identities and expressions of gender and sexual orientation.
Lindsey's therapeutic style and stamina is centered on her belief that people are resilient and have the capacity for growth and change. Lindsey works to create a therapeutic environment marked by warmth, empathy, approachability, and collaboration. It is important to Lindsey that you feel that she is the best fit therapist for you as your comfort and connection will make the most impact in your willingness to share and grow.
Lindsey empowers her clients to develop a more positive view of who they are and who they can be. She believes clients have the ability to face and overcome challenges more successfully once they see their own natural strengths. Building on these strengths, Lindsey provides strong person-centered interventions providing clients with additional skills and techniques to improve their social emotional functioning.
Understanding that often emotional pain can take root in the mind/body and cause difficulties with thoughts, behaviors, and overall functioning, Lindsey incorporates aspects of Evidence Based strategies such as, Cognitive behavioral therapy, Dialectical Behavioral therapy, Motivational interviewing, Psychoeducation, Brainspotting, and Mindfulness to help tailor interventions for optimal healing and recovery. Lindsey uses Brainspotting as a tool to neurobiologically process and release sources of emotional/body pain and a variety of other challenging symptoms that are typically out of reach of the conscious mind.
In her free-time, Lindsey enjoys hiking, reading, traveling, spending time with her friends and family, and training her new puppy to be a therapy dog one day.
