About Me

Hello! I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Indiana with three years of post-graduate experience. I received both my Bachelors and Masters degrees from Indiana University and have more extensive training in motivational interviewing, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy as well as being a certified yoga instructor. My work-experience thus far has brought me to be most experienced in working with individuals who struggle with interpersonal traumas, abuse histories, PTSD, depression, anxiety and personality related disorders.

I believe my laid-back and compassionate personality reflect in my treatment approaches. I believe building a strong client-therapist relationship is essential in providing good therapy and take the time to develop this relationship. I commonly use interventions guided by cognitive behavioral therapy, trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and mindfulness/grounding techniques. Treatment should fit each persons individual needs and I will work with you to develop goals and work to achieve them!

Seeking therapy can be a vulnerable thing and I respect that in all seeking services. I look forward to helping bring positive outcomes from therapy into your life!

I love my therapist very much. She is understanding and helps me see things I never would have seen before. She is attentive and so nice while also not letting me get away with not being genuine to myself. She is helping me through alot and I greatly appreciate her.

With Lindsay’s help I have been able to identify the areas in my life that need focused attention and make positive changes. She has given me the tools I need to move forward. I am becoming a more confident individual, a better partner and overall healthier person with her help.

Lindsay has been a great help with my anxiety. She has helped me process and deal with a lot of difficulties in the last year and a half and I’m so thankful for her

Written by B.R. on Jul 23, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 1 year and 2 months on issues concerning relationship issues, family conflicts, and intimacy-related issues

Lindsay is always available, helps keep things in perspective, and challenges me when things are hard or too easy. My life is better having someone to talk to who isn't just a 'yes' man / woman, but rather pushes me to feel better about myself.

Lindsay is the best!!

Written by M.A. on May 30, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 11 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Lindsay is the absolute greatest counselor I’ve ever had. Better help is the best and j tell everyone about it, but Lindsay is what makes it so great. She’s relatable, insightful, really listens and is great at validating my feelings and helping me be constructive. Even when I get too busy to check in she always reaches out.

I worked with Lindsey only a couple times but she's very good at her job and helpful.

Written by L.O. on Apr 30, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 5 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Lindsay is great, prompt, great at asking questions to dig further and help find solutions and support. Very welcoming and kind too!

Written by V.I. on Mar 30, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

I was really nervous about starting therapy and had no idea how it works. Lindsay has been brilliant about pulling me out of my privacy mode and getting me to open up. She listens and gives advice in the most non judgemental way. I still get a little anxious about therapy right before a session, but I always feel so much better afterwards. I'm so happy I made the decision to use this site, and I couldn't be more thrilled with my therapist.

This is my third time using betterhelp and my third time coming to Lindsay. She's absolutely fantastic and I'm glad to have her in my corner.

Written by H.A. on Feb 17, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, self esteem, career difficulties, coaching, and adhd

It's been great having Lindsay! She is so easy to talk to and work things out with. She's really supportive. I'm really lucky that I got matched with her!

Written by T.A. on Jan 31, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, and self esteem

Lindsay has been absolutely instrumental in the support of my mental health. She listens when I just need to vent and gives great advice when I need some direction. I know I can reach out if distressed and receive a timely reply, and she reaches out in between sessions to check on how things are and that's incredibly appreciated. I would recommend her to anyone.

Written by R.Y. on Nov 18, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, grief, and self esteem

Not only does Lindsay take the time to respond to my messages between sessions and make sure I truly feel heard, but she has rarely cancelled/rescheduled a session on me. She always seems prepared, and remembers the things we've discussed, even when something comes up in one session relating to something we last discussed months before.

Written by L.A. on Oct 24, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, and eating disorders

Lindsay is a wealth of resources. She works alongside me to find the best materials for me and my schedule, whether that’s a meditation app or book. She’s very insightful, while also allows the space for me to process and come to my own conclusions.

Written by K.A. on Oct 18, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, sleeping disorders, self esteem, and adhd

Lindsay is really great at getting to the core motivations and cognitive biases that I hold and finding creative solutions that are tailored me and my situation. I’ve met with other counselors outside of Lindsay, but so far she is the only one who has made any impact on me.

Written by R.O. on Sep 16, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, coping with life changes, and adhd

She is a wonderful counselor and has an amazing knowledge bank. I'm learning new things every time I speak to her. And her knowledge has been able to get me many answers for my odd questions and such. I would highly recommend her to anyone. Great listener.

Written by K.A. on Sep 09, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and coping with life changes

I have already recommended BetterHelp to a lot of my friends and family that have a busy life but still need to have someone to talk to. Lindsay has been more than wonderful and patient helping me work through issues going on. It had been a week since she heard from me, back to school was keeping me busy, and she even took the time to reach out to me to make sure things were going well. Lindsay has been one of the easiest people I have been able to talk to when it came to counseling. She works wonderfully around my school and work schedule to set up appointments. Lindsay, without a doubt, has been wonderfully accommodating with messaging and sessions, my schedule, and my needs, showing her true passion to want to help.

Written by D.A. on Jul 26, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, and relationship issues

Lindsay has been great. I was in a bad place and just talking to her made me feel a lot better. She is insightful and continues to ask questions that make me dig deeper into myself to get the real details out.

Written by A.B. on Jul 20, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, lgbt, relationship issues, anger management, bipolar disorder, and coping with life changes

Lindsay is great. She really listens to me and connects to things that I already enjoy. She feels like a friend I can come to. I’m really happy with her.

Written by J.U. on Jun 20, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and coping with life changes

Lindsay has been a big factor in me getting healthy and happy. I love being able to email her any time and she gets back to me with great ideas and questions and strategies. Even though I am doing much better I am going to continue on with Lindsay so I can stay healthy.

Written by J.E. on Jun 20, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, bipolar disorder, coping with life changes, and compassion fatigue

Lindsay has been absolutely fantastic since I've been speaking with her. As someone who has done face to face therapy before, I feel like Lindsay has gone above and beyond at times for me. She is incredibly reliable and timely in response. She's also very kind, understanding, encouraging, and supportive without feeling like she's telling you what you want to hear.

She’s really helping me get to the root of past trauma and helping me to cope with the loss of people.

Written by N.E. on Jun 04, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, self esteem, and career difficulties

Felt like my world was caving in at first, but I finally managed to get help, which so happened to be from BetterHelp. I was a little skeptical at first because I always thought therapy was only for a certain type of person. Lindsay though, she has helped me with more than she knows and she's very good at connecting with people my age. I just want to express my thorough gratitude towards her and the field of work she is in. Everyday I'm working on getting better, and Lindsay has been a supportive role in helping me with that the whole way. Thank you.

She is very patient, she listens and she doesn't overwhelm you with a bunch of stuff all at once but most of all she listens to what you have to say.

Written by S.Y. on May 11, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, lgbt, grief, self esteem, and anger management

She has been amazing and has given me tips and worksheets that I could use.
