About Me

I have been working with a variety of different individuals and families in California over the past 10 years. I use many different approaches to therapy depending on what works for the particular client or even the particular situation. My main focus is on what works and what has worked for the person in the past. I have found psycho-education, CBT, and client-centered therapy works really well in the most varied of circumstances and presentations. I like the idea of using education and worksheets so that you can have a reference to the work that you are doing. I have worked for a long time with folks struggling with psychiatric diagnosis as well, so there are many aspects of motivational interviewing and stages of change that I can use to help you further. Would love to connect and hope that I can help.

Written by K.E. on Sep 10, 2019 after counseling with Lindsay for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, self esteem, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

I love Lindsay. I think she has been fabulous for me. I think she truly listens. I think she tries to put up with my rapid talking and crazy disappointment in life. I think she gets me. I love her. No complaints with her.
