About My Clients

Many of those I work with are in the peripartum/perinatal period. The challenges of pregnancy and birth, parenting, fertility and loss require specialized training and experience. My clients are often struggling with adjusting to new ways of living as parents, while also wanting to integrate and honor the rites of passage that birth and parenthood offers. Others are moving through menopause. It may be that we are facing our own aging identity while reflecting on our parents' shifts.

My Background and Approach

Lindsey is a compassionate and skilled marriage and family therapist drawing upon over a decade working in the perinatal/postpartum field, first as a birth doula and lactation counselor, and now as a licensed MFT. She uses a variety of trauma-informed modalities including Hakomi, a body-centered approach to therapy that emphasizes mindfulness, compassion, and experiential techniques, Somatics, Relational, Insight, and Attachment theories into her practice. She brings a unique blend of therapeutic approaches to work holistically with her clients, addressing not only their cognitive and emotional experiences but also their physical sensations and patterns. Through a relational approach, she creates a safe and compassionate space for clients to explore their attachment styles and gain insight into how these patterns affect their relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

We all need safety and attunement to show up for this world. My goal is to work with you to cultivate a deeper embodied understanding of your experiences and develop new ways of coping. I believe that each person holds unique wisdom and my role is to provide a safe environment for those insights to organically emerge and unfold. We will work to support you accessing your inner wisdom and intuitive knowing. I will guide you to turn towards your present-moment experiences using mindfulness practices. You will connect with the living, embodied sensations and emotions that arise in your body, not just focusing on your thoughts. You will be given the space to express and explore your experiences while being deeply heard, understood, and supported as you also strengthen your own ability to self-soothe and self-regulate. Healing our inner parts and finding trust in our deeper selves brings wellness and balance to a messy world.
