About this pro
Lindsay is a friendly, personable & intelligent therapist who made me feel comfortable from the first time we had a session. Her insights helped me to sort through a lot of issues, and change my perspective in a very positive way in my day to day life. One of the more unique things I learned about was how to recognize emotional responses in my body and how to use simple breathing exercises to deal with anxiety. Couldn't recommend her any more highly!Mar 29, 2017
My daughter has struggled with anxiety and selective mutism and has had therapy for a few years with a different therapist in the same office as Lindsay but had no progress but when she started to see Lindsay within weeks I noticed my daughters progression. Lindsay not only was good at making my daughter and myself feel comfortable and safe but was great with making sure to try different methods to help my daughters progression. I was also impressed with her going out of her way to do research and print out any information to help me help my daughter. She is very knowledgeable and passionate at her work. I would highly recommend her.Aug 19, 2015
I am in a high-conflict divorce situation, and was required by court order to attend a Reflective Parenting Class. Needless to say, my nerves were shot from the endless conflict both in and out of the courtroom. I was looking for someone with great listening skills, and who was not jaded and cynical from overexposure to the personal drama of thousands of clients. I was very fortunate to find Lindsay for this class; her personality and approach are well-suited to the Reflective Parenting material. She gave a well-organized presentation of the material, but more importantly, she had a clear interest in applying the general principles in the class to my specific situation. She also provided useful background reading which was very thoughtfully chosen and helped me sort out some difficult situations with one of my daughters. In addition to the good listening skills and thoughtful presentation, Lindsay has strong intuitive skills and a genuine desire to see the problem clearly through the clients eyes. Her receptive intelligence and thoughtful articulation gave me the sense that I had been not only heard, but understood. Part way through the class, we decided that coming to class directly from work required a few minutes of mindful dissociation and refocusing, in order to recover the attention required for working on something so deep as parenting skills. Lindsay introduced a 5 minute meditation session at the beginning of the class, and we spoke about the issues that were most persistently causing the distraction of my attention. This was a really valuable addition to the class and enhanced the experience tremendously. The course was delivered in 10 modules; the primary emphasis was teaching parents to reflect on their own reaction when confronted with an emotional challenge from their children. In this way, parents avoid becoming entrained in their childs emotion and are better able to offer a rational solution when parental guidance is required. I found all of these modules useful, but was most stimulated by what I learned in the sessions about temperament, and about the usefulness of play. With Lindsays guidance, we were able to identify the temperament classifications that describe my children, and had a provocative discussion about birth order and its effect on temperament. Lindsays discussion and demonstration about the usefulness of play in the parent/child interaction were eye-openers for me. I take my responsibilities to my children very seriously, and was surprised to hear that parental participation in play can benefit my children. Although there is an endless stream of parenting advice generated daily, maybe it is time to pick up the crayons again and re-enter the playful world. That was pretty easy advice to follow. At the final session of the course, I inquired whether Lindsay is available for one-on-one personal counseling. If time permits and circumstances require it, I will most definitely be seeking her advice. I will also highly recommend her to any of my colleagues who need guidance in family and relationship therapy.Dec 1, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Price is dependent on your insurance or your financial situation. I am an in-network provider for Cigna, MHN and HMC Healthworks. I also work as an Out-Of-Network PPO provider (i.e. Blue Shield of CA). Let me know if you'd like to use your insurance and I can help you find out what type of coverage you have for my services.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to make sure I'm the right person for the job before we start seeing each other so, the first step is a consultation over the phone or in person. We will go over what you are looking to address in therapy and your goals. If there is someone I feel can suit your needs better, I'll refer you to a different provider. If it's a good match, we'll discuss scheduling and fees. Typically, sessions are weekly or biweekly for 50 minutes. The length of therapy can last anywhere from 3 months to 1+ years depending on your goals.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a bachelor's degree in Psychology and a master's degree in Clinical Psychology. I have worked in a wide variety of settings and completed several trainings over the past ten years. I specialize in body-oriented work to help heal the body and mind of those who have experienced life stressors and/or trauma. I also specialize in anxiety, depression and children/adolescents experiencing emotional and/or behavioral issues.
