Hi There! I’m Lyndsei, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist. Whether you are a first timer, a veteran or somewhere in the middle, I’m so glad you landed here! I already admire you for starting or continuing the work to become the best version of yourself. I love the therapy room and I believe that everyone should have a chance to experience its benefits! My social work experience includes work in the juvenile justice system, the child welfare system, community mental health, inpatient/ outpatient treatment, family therapy, schools, hospital systems and government programs. These experiences allow me to understand the diverse and complex issues faced in the communities I serve and influence my holistic and strength-based approach as a therapist.
I specialize in treating individual and families dealing with emotion dysregulation, dysfunctional patterns, relationship issues, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, internal conflict, life transitions and identity issues. In my work with individuals, I integrate elements of Traditional Talk Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In my work with families, I utilize Structural Family Therapy (SFT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). When it comes to therapy, there is no one size that will fit all. As the client, I believe that you are the expert of your own life, so I partner with you to discover the tailor-made support that will serve you best.
I provide a safe, nonjudgmental environment that welcomes you to remove your mask and be filled so that you don’t have to pour from an empty cup. As a psychotherapist, my role is to help you make connections as you tell your story, find your strengths and build your courage to confront difficult emotions or experiences. I help give language to what you are experiencing and grow your understanding of the change process. Together we build a toolbox of skills that will help you navigate your mental and emotional challenges and ultimately lead to a more fulfilling life. To sum it up, we set goals, you crush them and I cheer for you along the way! No matter the issues you are facing, know that you don’t have to face them alone. You deserve professional support from a clinically trained, licensed professional to help you consistently rediscover the hope in healing. Well, I’m pleased to meet you!
I can’t wait to partner and support you in your journey as you heal, rise and SOAR!
