Lindsay Richardson, LCMHC
Hi! My name is Lindsay and I am a clinical mental health counselor who works with teens and adults who may be struggling with depression, anxiety, life transitions, or traumatic experiences. I also work with couples. I strongly believe that through the therapeutic relationship, each client can be empowered to enact change and gain a deeper understanding of themselves. My role as a therapist is to be a non-judgmental listener, an insight-builder, and a strengths-finder.
Often, it can be just a little awkward to sit down with a total stranger and talk about some pretty personal subject matter. I work to ensure that judgment and critique is put aside in our work together. I’m here to accept you and accept what you’re struggling with.
When we’re at a point of distress in our lives, it can be difficult to step outside and see the situation from a different perspective. That’s where I come in. While I am in no way the expert on your life and your struggles, my role is to help you process your feelings and experiences in ways that bring about greater insight, meaning, and understanding. Fostering insight and understanding into the “whys” behind our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors ultimately brings about change, and I’m here to collaborate with you on that journey.
As with most things, effective therapy doesn’t have a “one size fits all” approach that works for everyone. I pride myself on adapting to the needs of my clients and their therapeutic goals. I believe that each client comes into therapy with unique and complex challenges, and I draw from several different modalities to tailor treatment to the individual. In using any treatment modality, my goal is to assist you in building an understanding of yourself and assist you in building skills necessary to make sense of your emotions and experiences.
I graduated from Capella University in 2012. Since that time I have provided family therapy through home based, community services, as well as crisis intervention services with individuals and families with mental health service needs.
