Hi, I'm Lindsay. I am excited to work with motivated clients to achieve the changes they are looking for. After years of agency work, I decided to pursue my dreams of private practice so I can engage in the work that I am passionate about. In my professional life, I have found great satisfaction in working with clients with anxiety and depression, and have experience in a variety of treatment modalities, ranging from traditional talk therapy to acupuncture, community based counseling to biofeedback and neurofeedback. I aim to work together with you to develop a treatment plan that gets you the results that you are looking for. I have been told I have a gentle, authentic, genuine style. I offer therapy in the office or online. Teletherapy can be helpful in crappy weather, if you're not feeling so good and don't want to leave the house, or if you don't want to wear actual pants and go out in public (hoo, boy can I relate to that one).
I attended Central Michigan University for undergrad, graduating with a bachelor of science in psychology. I also completed training as an emergency medical technician at that time. An experience in the EMS field pushed me to want to help in a different way, and I pursued my Master's degree in social work from Western Michigan University. After graduation, I practiced under supervision until accruing enough hours to qualify for my full clinical license (LMSW).
In my free time, I love spending time with my husband and our dog, Journey. I enjoy nature and find that getting out and enjoying nature does wonders for my own mental wellness. I love hopping on a bike path and taking a long ride, and exploring new restaurants along the way. I used to spend a lot of time exploring the woods of Northern Michigan, but now we have bears and I am afraid (Maybe I should talk to someone about that....).During college basketball season, I spend a lot of time yelling at the TV.
The sooner we get started, the sooner we can start to see change! I'd love to work with you to reach the goals you'd like to achieve.
