Lindsey works with teens and young adults to address a wide range of mental and emotional stressors. Previously, she developed a 6 month holistic mental health training program based on social-emotional skill development for teens and young adults.

Lindsey is passionate about bringing creativity through the use of metaphors to healing and uses a combination of art, drama, dance movement, narrative and poetry therapy, existential, spiritual, somatic embodiment, mindfulness, gestalt, functional family therapy, and reality therapy throughout her sessions.

She believes in learning and working with the intention to support inner personal growth, the development of imagination, and the integration of spiritual expansion using person-centered and intermodal expressive arts infused counseling and therapeutic creative approaches to optimize mental health and wellness/well-being.

Expressive Arts is experiential, co-creative, and a collaborative process whereby clients
take agency of their own process. With a varied toolkit of verbal and expressive therapies, she meets each client where they are with patience and empathy; and walks with them as they figure out where they want to be to get there with self-awareness and personal resilience.

Lindsey specializes in drama & expressive arts therapy and is available for in office appointments on Mondays.
