Are you a person of color, LGBTQ, or woman-identified professional in a high demand field? Have you been wearing that superhero cape for far too long? Ready to feel more peace in your life? You’ve come to the right place. I’m Dr. Lindsey Brooks and I work with underrepresented achievers. I’ll help you feel more grounded, balanced, and resilient. You might be thinking to yourself: "I need to keep it all together”, “If I just work harder and push myself more, then everything will be okay”, or “I have to stay strong for my family”. Everyone around you sees you as a success, yet something still feels like it’s missing.

Are high levels of anxiety and work pressure causing you to feel irritable and impatient with people? Are you tired of feeling chronically rushed, tense, and fatigued? Mindfulness and somatic therapy for anxiety will empower you with effective techniques to reduce anxiety and increase your emotional peace. I know the time pressure you experience most days is intense - and the amount of obligations required of you at home and at work is mind-boggling. But the extreme pressure you experience is unsustainable, and it’s keeping you from fully enjoying secure personal relationships and meaningful leisure activities. There is another way.

Are you making it through the day, looking to the rest of the world as if you're doing just fine, but deep down inside you feel stuck and uninspired? Do you wonder what is holding you back from thriving in the world? In our hectic world we often find ourselves afraid to take risks that could jeopardize the stable lives we've created for ourselves. We remain in jobs, relationships and old patterns that no longer work, while symptoms such as anxiety, depression, stress, anger and self-defeating patterns keep us from making real changes to our lives.

Do you "have it all" but feel unsatisfied? We live in an era where we grew up being told we could have everything we wanted, however, we are quickly realizing that having everything does not bring us lasting joy and instead burns us out. I am here to help individuals minimize their life to invest their time and energy into what truly matters. When working with me, you’ll find that my style is exploratory and extremely action-oriented while being genuine, honest, and humorous. My passion lies in working with individuals who are exploring who they are, where they come from, what they are passionate about, and where they want to go.

Many of us possess a feeling that there is a way to live better and to feel better. It's this feeling that drives the work of therapy and stems from an essential experience of feeling healthy, safe, and loved. Being human, by nature, is a perilous journey where we often get lost and hurt and find ourselves in an experience of emotional and physical pain. Coming to therapy means committing to a relationship with a therapist that is in service of finding your truth and a way to feel better.

You want to be your best self, but not sure exactly what that is or how to get there. You’re afraid to do the wrong things at times and do nothing as a result. When you and your partner talk about your relationship you mean well, but say the wrong things or it comes out the wrong way. Falling short on friendships, dating and your career and you’re not sure why. You need clarity and a way to move forward, but turning to friends or family doesn’t feel like the way to go.

I believe Psychotherapy can be a “point in the right direction” to bring change, healing, and a new sense of hope into your life. This is a place you can talk about anything, where you can explore fears, frustrations, hopes and all the parts of yourself. You don't have to be in crisis for therapy, often it's good to have someone to talk through things. I am a deep and attentive listener, as well as interactive. One of my goals is to give you my "toolbox" so you can manage life outside the office. I am also sex positive, open to people of all ethnicities, race and gender.

Growing up, we are often not taught how to face our emotions. While emotions are a vital part of the human experience, social conditioning and pressures can lead us to compartmentalize and stifle our inner worlds. As a result, we carry a burden of internalized pain and negative beliefs — that we are alone, unloved, or not good enough. This disconnect can lead to anxiety, depression, anger, low self-esteem, and difficulty feeling content in relationships. In therapy, we can begin to explore, honor, and change our feelings and — by extension — our relationship with ourselves, others, and the world.
