Get to Know Me

 

Welcome! I'm Lindsay and it's a privilege to have you here.

I’m a person who wholeheartedly believes in the resiliency of the human spirit to provide healing and comfort through life’s toughest moments. I’ve witnessed the self-empowerment that arises from a person working through the “stuff” that holds them back. I’ve seen people be able to lead the authentic life they’ve always dreamed of. For some, it’s a life they never thought was possible.


I guess you could say that I’ve witnessed people become “grounded in their truth”. This is what inspires my practice. It’s why I’ve committed to doing this work.  When I see my clients’ eyes light up and they breathe easier…when I see they truly feel at peace with who they are; living their life with intention and purpose, it ignites my soul. It’s an honor that I do not take for granted and I am so grateful to journey with my clients into the sacred spaces of their experiences.

HOW I WORK WITH CLIENTS

My approach in counseling is intentional and direct in holding space for clients to see and become aware of how they're struggling. This purposeful pressure brings forth the opportunity to grow with meaningful self-knowing and start facing life's challenges with inner kindness and wholeness. Acknowledging our truth in the present-moment brings forth our inner strength.  Are you ready to be grounded in truth so that you, too, can anchor in the storms of life and live well? If so, I would be honored to take this journey with you.

THE TECHNICAL TERMS

In the work I do with clients, I use a present-moment focused and trauma-informed approach that draws from psychodynamic therapy, gestalt therapy, the crucible therapy approach, internal family systems,  and somatic experiencing (body-based therapy). My approach is an integrative style that works with the mind, body, and emotions in the present moment to help people move through and broaden their perspective of the struggles they face and carry. This style of working with people allows me to provide services tailored to your individual or relational experiences and needs.

CREDENTIALS AND EDUCATION

I'm an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor). My Texas state license number is 79863. I have 6 years of counseling and therapy experience and extensive training  working with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationships. I have had specialized training in working with trauma, such as PTSD and CPTSD (childhood/developmental trauma).

I completed a post-graduate school intensive therapy fellowship for 3 1/2 years with Fuller Life Family Therapy Institute. Here, I received my specialized training in anxiety, depression, trauma recovery, and couples therapy.

I earned my Master's of Education degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the University of New Orleans and my Bachelor's degree in Psychology from McNeese State University.

OUTSIDE OF THE OFFICE

When I'm not doing this meaningful work, I spend my time relaxing at home or enjoying family time with my husband, son, and fur-baby at the park. One of my favorite things is an afternoon cup of coffee (especially if it's not too hot and I can sit outside). Aside from my self-care routine of journaling, walking, and meditating, I also like to unwind by playing a video game or watching one of my favorite movies.
