Experienced child therapist
She has a huge heart for kids and adolescents. Prior to becoming a therapist, Lindsay was a Preschool Lead Teacher. She saw firsthand the positive impact therapy can have on children (and all the people around them!) and was drawn in to the world of counseling. After becoming a therapist, Lindsay then worked with children in foster care at Crossnore, a non-profit child welfare organization supporting children and families in crisis. She loves seeing kids grow in confidence, character, and creativity. Lindsay is warm, light-hearted, patient and encouraging. She instantly creates a safe place for healing & growing.
While Lindsay came from a loving family, she experienced firsthand the value of family therapy during challenging times. As the middle child, Lindsay knows benefit of having a life-long bond with both her siblings. During her High School years, she loved lacrosse and gymnastics, treasuring the team and individual sports and friendships.
Loves working with adolescents, college-age & young adults…
Lindsay loves working with adolescents. She completed a clinical internship at Wataguga High School in North Carolina. There, she provided crisis counseling to students and families, as well as collaborated with school counselors, educators, as well as parents and students to create individual mental health plans, using evidence-based interventions. She also has more than 500 hours of clinical experience with an AAMFT supervisor.
She works from a holistic and systemic lens and believes parents, families, and community are integral to the therapeutic process. Lindsay is certified in Multicultural Counseling and will advocate for underserved and marginalized populations. She is all about helping people create positive change in their lives through healing, self-awareness, and finding balance.
In her free time, Lindsay loves laughing with friends and family, spending time outdoors and snuggling with her pup, Ziggy. She also is a “foodie” and loves exploring the tastes and flavors of new restaurants. While she loves her family in North Carolina, she is excited to be creating a new adventure in Chicago to support the North Shore community (and try out some new amazing restaurants!) .
