About Lindsey (she/her/hers)
Lindsey is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the state of Illinois. She graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Psychology in 2004. She then went on to obtain a Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health in 2010. Lindsey has experience in a vast array of mental health treatment settings including outpatient services, residential treatment, providing mental health services via the foster care system, as well as experience in a hospital setting. This breadth of experience has given Lindsey a unique and robust perspective and base of knowledge.
Amidst these varying experiences, her first love has always been individual therapy. Lindsey considers it a tremendous honor, and one of her life's purposes, to walk alongside fellow humans as a steady and supportive presence. She has specific experience working with adults and adolescents navigating anxiety, depression, ADHD, relationship troubles, parenting development, gender identity and sexual orientation exploration, spiritual/religious trauma, and women's issues. Lindsey also loves working with clients seeking personal development/empowerment utilizing supplemental resources such as the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and The Enneagram.
Lindsey utilizes a combination of therapeutic modalities in her practice, including Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, imagery and somatics. All interventions are integrated from a trauma-informed perspective.
Lindsey is also trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART). ART is a therapeutic protocol that utilizes bilateral stimulation to effectively and quickly provide relief for individuals suffering from PTSD and/or complex trauma. Learn more about ART here.
Lindsey strives to meet her clients exactly where they are, honoring the experiences that have brought them to where they are today, and working with each client towards unearthing the innate potential for wellness that lies within each of us.
Lindsey lives in the Fox Valley area with her 3 children. She attempts to stay present in this brutiful (brutal and beautiful) world through practicing yoga, walking, reading and writing, creating playful art, eating good food, and connecting with dear friends as often as she's able.
