I’m glad you're here! My name is Lindsay Lientz, and I’m a professional counselor. Before I say anything else, it’s important to welcome and congratulate you. Asking for help is not easy for everyone. You’ve taken a bigger step than you realize in simply beginning your search. Soon I believe you’ll find out just how far you can go toward making your life what you really want it to be, so congrats on taking that first step.
I’ve been in the counseling profession for 25 years. It’s been one of the most rewarding choices I made as a young person. I place high value on the people with whom I work. Most often, my approach includes helping people realize what they already knew, and just need the encouragement and safe space to say aloud. My counseling approach is eclectic, but one unchanging factor is the time and patience I extend to everyone. We all need a safe space to open up.
On a personal note, my favorite thing in the world is being a dad and a "papa." I have two young adult children, a granddaughter, and I also am a “dad again” to my wife’s children. Together, we have several dogs, and have started raising chickens, so life can sometimes be noisy and active! When I’m not doing the work I love, I prefer to spend time outdoors doing anything that keeps me moving. I believe movement is life.
Some of the choices you’ll make over the next couple years could set you on a really successful course. I would be happy to be part of your team, helping encourage you toward the next stage of life.
Thanks again for taking this first big step - no matter who you choose to work with, I believe you'll make progress toward the person you want and the world needs.

Lindsay is always respectful and kind listening patiently. He hears my concerns and gives me one or two tools to try when I have difficulty communicating with family and friends, and tools to calm my mind in stressful situations.
