About Me

I am a licensed clinical social worker and have been practicing for 11 years. I have a bachelor's of science with a major in psychology and master's of social work from the University of Utah. I am licensed and currently practice in Utah and Wyoming. I have experience providing treatment for individuals, families, and groups in the following settings: community mental health, private practice, and psychiatric hospitals. I worked in child welfare for several years in the past advocating for children and families.

My clinical interests and majority of my experience include treating: physical, emotional, and/or sexual trauma, depression, anxiety disorders, relationship issues, addictions, and adjustment to major life changes. I have experience treating teens in crisis and addressing issues with the following: self-harm, low self-esteem, social skills, oppositional defiant behavior, trauma, self-worth, interpersonal conflict, addiction, attachment, adjusting to major family and life changes. I have run teen mental health and substance abuse therapy groups along with individual therapy. I also have experience going to local junior highs and high schools providing mental health therapy one to two days a week helping teens with a variety of issues. Teens usually tell me I am easy to open up to and give them coping skills they will actually use. I understand that teens need to feel safe and comfortable in order to open up about what is bothering them which is my first priority in treating them.

The treatment modalities I may use are: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), dialectic behavioral therapy (DBT), narrative therapy, solution focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, positive psychology, mindfulness, eye movement desensitization reprocessing (EMDR), and family systems theory. I look forward to helping your teen navigate what may be creating problems for them and improve family connection!

Written by A.M. on Oct 24, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 4 months on issues concerning trauma and abuse

Lindsay has been a wonderful counselor. She has been encouraging and offers insight that I would not be able to see on my own. She is thoughtful and understanding. She always takes my goals and desires into consideration while reminding me that I am worthwhile enough not be healthy and have boundaries. She helps me set realistic and attainable goals while offering tools and support to achieve them. Lindsay is trustworthy and reliable. I am beyond grateful for her and am excited to become the person she sees within me.

I am so glad that I found Lindsay she has really helped me the last couple months. I really don't know what I would do without her

Yes. Get Lindsay as your therapist if you can. She is easy to work with and it’s well worth the time spent with her.

Lindsay is so wonderful, patient and kind. When I am speaking to her I feel like just a normal person. She validates my emotions and I just feel so comfortable with her. It has made the scary process of going to therapy all the better.

I love my counselor. I've only met with them a couple of times, but I already feel like I am improving with their help. In such a short time, we have already started to tackle some major obstacles in my life and I couldn't be more grateful.

Lindsay is very empathetic and encouraging, she really has my best interest at heart and I can feel so much good energy when I’m talking to her!

I love Lindsay! She has been great so far. She gives me lots of tools to use in the interim and is open to trying different therapies to help me. I look forward to seeing her weekly for the foreseeable future.u

Written by A.L. on Jul 20, 2020 after counseling with Lindsay for 1 month on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, addictions, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, sleeping disorders, self esteem, anger management, and bipolar disorder

Lindsay is an angel in disguise. I feel comfortable telling her just about anything and that’s incredibly rare for me. She makes me feel heard, more confident in myself/decisions, and at ease. There’s just something about her that’s incredibly nice to be around. I used to dislike the idea of video chatting with an online therapist because it made me nervous, but I notice I always feel better when I do talk to her. She doesn’t just feel like a therapist, but an actual friend who cares/listens to you. :)
