About me

Welcome, I'm so glad that you have reached out for help! My name is Lindsay, and I'm a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Illinois and a Licensed Independent Social Worker in Iowa. Currently, I'm a therapist that works for a local community mental health center where I provide individual, family, and couple's counseling. Most clients I work with have been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder different personality disorders, or bipolar disorder. I have extensive training in trauma, both with trauma occurring in childhood, such as physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, and adult trauma, such as sexual assault or domestic violence.

My approach in therapy is client centered, open, and non-judgmental. I use cognitive behavioral, rational emotive, dialectical behavior, strength-based and trauma informed therapy. Clients identify their goals and desired outcomes, and I'm there to assist in the therapeutic process. Each client I work with is met with understanding and empathy.

I look forward to working with you.

Lindsay is great. Very good at helping find a different way to look at things that are bothering me. She helps me talk through some of my bigger feelings and concerns

Lindsay was a great listener during our first session. We had an issue with video call, but we were able to quickly navigate to a phone call. She even gave me extra time to finish out our full session. She was quickly responsive to my chat messages as well. I look forward to diving deeper into specific problems in out next sessions. She really took the time to get to know me.

Lindsay has been so helpful! I have a lot of trauma to work through and Lindsay makes me feel very safe and able to open up. I love how she supports my healthy life choices and makes an effort to also ask about my hobbies and interests in addition to helping me work through the hard stuff.
