Get to Know Me
Welcome! I'm Lindsay and it's a privilege to have you here
Being there for you with transparency allows you the space to face what you need in order to live a life grounded in truth. Becoming grounded in truth means you can anchor yourself through the storms that come, and in life there are always storms that come. It's growing with integrity so that you are resilient in the midst of the waves of your circumstances or situation. I've seen people grow to live their lives with solid wholeness and withstand the waves. This is my hope for you, as well.
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) # 79863 and CCTP (Certified Clinical Trauma Professional). I have 4 years of counseling and therapy experience and extensive training working with anxiety, depression, trauma, and relationships. I have specialized training and certification 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 enjoy spending time at home or outside at a park with my husband, son, and fur-baby. I also enjoy my self-care time by taking a walk, journaling, and meditating.
