Hi, I'm Dr. Lindsey. I work with underrepresented achievers -- who are people of color, LGBTQ, or woman-identified professionals.
Psychologist in San Francisco, CA
I have honed my specialty in Gender Identity through specialized training in gender identity, clinical experience, and leading support groups with the trans* community. I keep up-to-date on my knowledge by attending the National Transgender Health Summit, sponsored by UCSF, every 2 years. I have a particular interest in working with genderqueer, gender non-binary, and gender expansive clients.
I have honed my specialty in LGBTQ therapy through years of clinical trainings and experience, leading queer support groups, conducting research, leadership, and mentoring. I am actively involved in the American Psychological Association's (APA) LGBTQ Division. I have a specialty in working with bisexual, pansexual, queer, and fluid clients. I have greatly enjoyed leading support groups for the bi+ community.
The foundation of my therapy work is Interpersonal Therapy. This was the theoretical approach of my graduate program and it strongly informs the way I approach clients in my work today. I find the balance of acknowledging the importance of the past while primarily focusing on how we can create change in the present day to be very helpful to my clients.
I was trained in mindfulness approaches throughout my graduate training and have continued to hone this skill throughout my career with additional specialized training. I have completed the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Program. I have offered several Mindfulness groups for my clients over the years. I commonly integrate mindfulness in to my sessions with clients.
I have received specialized post-graduate school training in Emotion- Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). I have found this evidence-based approach to couples work to be a very powerful tool for meaningful change.
I have honed my specialty in working with marginalized folks through years of clinical trainings and experience, leading cultural dialogue groups, teaching and leading workshops on social justice topics, and participating in white privilege self-exploration groups
