About Me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) licensed in VA.. I have 25 years' experience in working with justice-involved adults, adults with serious mental illness, And I have worked with many types of addictions including drugs and alcohol. I also treat grief and loss, clinical depression, anxiety and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I also like working with the LGBTQ populations. I treat mainly from a person-centered perspective but also find motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral interventions beneficial. My style is somewhat on the non-directive side, I can also give "homework" if I believe it to be beneficial or helpful to clients who may feel "stuck" in their lives.

I do believe each and every one of my clients has their answers to their issues, it's a matter of awakening and assisting each individual to move forward.
I look forward to working with you.

Miss Lindsey is wonderful. I appreciated the short time we had together and I appreciate BetterHelp and how therapists are able to send messages so quickly! I hope to use Lindsey again in interim. She listened to me and also helped me. I am finding myself in a better place thanks to her.

Lindsey is a great therapist! I am the definition of a difficult client, kind of like an onion you have to peel back one layer of the time and she is so respectful of the time I need to open up about things and provides me with so many resources and is always looking for alternative ways if I feel like some thing isn’t working for me.

Lindsey is empathetic, respectful and, responds in a timely manner. She goes the extra mile to put you at ease before we begin and right before we end and is quite understanding. It has been a pleasure speaking to her

Lindsey is wonderful. An empathetic listener, and someone who you truly believe has your best interests at heart. She has been incredibly helpful for me, and has guided me to a much better place now than I was when I started my sessions with her. You'll be in good hands.
