About Me

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and have been practicing in the State of Georgia since 2014. I have a Masters of Science in Marriage and Family Therapy and a post-Masters certification in Primary Care Behavioral Health. I'm also certified in Trauma - Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I'm also trained in Child and Family Traumatic Stress Intervention. I've worked with children, adolescents, adults, and couples in mental health clinics, schools and have experience both public and private medical practices. I worked for several years in endocrinology and chronic pain management helping adults manage the effects of chronic illness on their lives and relationships. I've also served as the Clinical Director of a Children's Advocacy Center and worked with families dealing with trauma, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and relational problems.

My passion is helping people build and live the lives they've always wanted. Lack of satisfaction in our daily lives and relationships can leave us feeling down, worried, or alone. That's not how life should be! As a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I offer a systemic, relational approach to both problems and solutions. I work collaboratively with my clients and believe my clients are the experts of their lives and circumstances. Sometimes people get caught in unhealthy cycles and patterns of behavior and just need a different perspective to help them break these cycles. Other times, people and families attempt to implement changes, but these changes are unsuccessful and leave them feeling discouraged and alone. By engaging in meaningful conversations and dialogue, we're able to create lasting change that results in an improved quality of life, as well as deeper, more connected relationships.

Lindsay is one of the best therapists I've seen! She really takes time with the issues that I bring to her & even remembers things I forgot I told her! I told her exactly what I wanted out of therapy & she is nothing like the typical therapist where you just sit there & rant and get the annoying "So how does that make you feel?" response. She actually gives you a genuine repose & concern! She really takes the time to pick apart past trauma & even mental health issues! I've genuinely enjoyed my time with her & look forward to making even more progress with her!

So far this been an overwhelmingly positive experience. And Lindsay is so personable and her passion for her job shines through. I have already moved forward quicker than I thought I would.

I was one of those people who were super skeptical when it came to therapy. I didn't want to pay for something that I could "just talk to my friends about or read some books" but I couldn't have been more wrong. Lindsay has been indescribable in my few months of sessions so far. She listens, she laughs, she cries and she feels WITH you. She makes you feel like you're literally talking to your best friend and it has become one of my favorite things to look forward to each week. You can totally tell that she was made to do what she is doing and I am so SO glad that our paths have crossed. She is the kind of person who will go out of her way to make sure that you are understood and you are cared for and to me that just makes the difference. Sure, it's her job, but this is more than that to her and it is so evident. Therapy isn't about sitting down and your therapist giving you all of the answers and making your life 1000% better. Like anything, it takes work and it takes work on BOTH sides. If you're just looking for her to do all of the work, you're not going to get far. It's part of the journey and you'd make the best decision to select her to go on that journey with her. :)

Lindsay has been so helpful to me and my mental health. She’s a fantastic listener and has the ability to help the sessions feel down to earth and calming, which is great. I always feel better leaving her sessions, no matter what we talk about. Thank you, Lindsay!

Lindsay was supportive in trying to understand how I was feeling without judgement. She is great to confide in if you only need a listener, however, she did not have many skills to help me actually make changes. I am changing counselors.

I truly feel listened to and that I get very realistic and applicable approaches to situations. I appreciate that I get asked questions to clarify situations or feelings in order to get feedback that is best appropriate.

I feel like Lindsay really cares about me as a patient. She’s great at asking the right questions to help me work through my issues step by step.

Lindsay is a great resource for my mental health. When I told Lindsay about my history with men, she was not judge mental at all. I know I can tell her anything. I like how Lindsay will repeat what I say but in the perspective that she interpreted it. It makes a great line of communication for us where I can I take into consideration someone else’s perspective.
