About me

Hello! I can only imagine if you are reading this right now you have tried several ways to feel better and at this point something has to give. I am here to assist you in creating and working toward goals that will positively impact your overall well-being. I am told by clients that I am down to earth and help them feel at ease. I use a holistic integrative approach with clients, which basically means looking at a person as a whole (mind, body and spirit) and then find ways to meet their unique needs with evidenced based treatment.

I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for 11 years. I have a bachelor's of science with a major in psychology and master's of social work from the University of Utah. I am licensed and currently practice in Utah and Wyoming. I have experience providing treatment for individuals, families, and groups in the following settings: community mental health, private practice, and psychiatric hospitals. I worked in child welfare for several years in the past advocating for children and families. I volunteered at the prison in the mental health section teaching women basic life skills and ran therapy groups at a women's halfway house while completing my degrees. I have had the opportunity to work with people of all walks of life. Empowering others is one of my passions in life! My clinical interests and majority of my experience include treating: physical, emotional, and/or sexual trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, relationship issues, addictions, and adjustment to major life changes. The treatment modalities I may use are: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, solution focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, mindfulness, eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), and family systems theory.

I have a blended family with two teenage step-kids and one biological son who is a toddler. My husband is a veteran and I have experience running the ship at home when he is away. I can relate to the stress of taking care of everything and trying to maintain a healthy balance. I look forward to getting to know more about you!

I LOVE Lindsay! Love her perspective and expertise, she has truly changed my life. I feel like Lindsay really cares about me as an individual. She celebrates my progress and gives the best advise without it being overwhelming.

Written on Jun 18, 2021 after therapy with Lindsay for 9 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, grief, self esteem, anger management, and adhd

Lindsay is a very knowledgeable, friendly, and empathetic therapist. She applies effective techniques from recent research studies in our therapy sessions. Even though she is already very knowledgeable, she is always eager to learn new skills and ways to more effectively help her clients. I am grateful for having her as my therapist. She helped me through the depth of my depression and was able to pinpoint the root of my feelings. She also helped me discover that I have ADHD and encouraged me to get medical treatment, which significantly improved my quality of life.

Lindsay is so wonderful, patient and kind. When I am speaking to her I feel like just a normal person. She validates my emotions and I just feel so comfortable with her. It has made the scary process of going to therapy all the better.

Lindsay is an angel in disguise. I feel comfortable telling her just about anything and that’s incredibly rare for me. She makes me feel heard, more confident in myself/decisions, and at ease. There’s just something about her that’s incredibly nice to be around. I used to dislike the idea of video chatting with an online therapist because it made me nervous, but I notice I always feel better when I do talk to her. She doesn’t just feel like a therapist, but an actual friend who cares/listens to you. :)
