Also note that I prioritize referrals for the BIPOC, Immigrant, and LGBTQIA + communities.
I currently have openings for 2-3 clients who are interested in weekly therapy, I am not accepting new clients who are looking for biweekly or monthly options at this time. The guiding values of my practice are authenticity, intention, and connection and I am likely a good fit for you if you are seeking more of these in your life. I believe that many of the people I work with seek therapy to discover what is missing and misaligned in the way they show up in their lives and our work together can assist you in that process.

You can find a safe space with therapy when you can find it nowhere else. Finding trustworthy professionals to help you with intimate issues is embarrassing and difficult. This is my most important skill, something not learned in school: unconditional positive acceptance and honest, non-threatening communication about intimate problems. Here you will find sensitivity to private behaviors which are regarded with non-judgmental acceptance and respect, never shame nor intolerance.

Hi there, I'm Lindsay. I'm a half-Chinese, half-Jewish (ethnically), chronically ill, neurodivergent, fat, queer , cisgender, nerdy human. I generally work with millennials whose main concern is symptoms related to burnout. I believe that all parts of you and your identity impact your well-being and how you move through the world. Therapy here starts with the belief that you are the expert on your own experience and becomes an exploration into what may cause you to doubt yourself, your emotions, your needs and wants, or any other aspect of your life.

Couples, families and individuals both in and outside the “binary” have enjoyed and benefitted from counseling and I want to more than welcome the LGBTQ community as well as those who have chosen an unorthodox lifestyle.
Currently Accepting New Clients! These are tough times! Many of us find our anxiety or depression is through the roof! Relationship issues are magnified by fears, financial woes, having to stay cooped-up together, and even grave loss. I am here to help. The decision to enter therapy is a courageous one: therapy requires change. You’ve come this far and that says something about you: you want a better life. I have a deep and heartfelt interest in walking the corridors of life with you, helping you find the things you want, the things you deserve, as you, and your partner or family find happiness and meaning in your journey.

I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important components for effective treatment outcomes. I strive to provide clients with a warm, compassionate space that fosters healing, a place where they can feel safe to be who they are in the moment, while working towards meaningful change.

Women, people of color, and queer and trans people are often told by society that they don’t fit it, and in our work together we can help you to feel as though you do fit.
I have experience working with minority communities including working with women, BIPOC, and LGBTQIA + clients. Minority groups, and couples, particularly those at the intersections of gender, race, and sexual orientation, are often underrepresented in fields of work such as business, tech, and entrepreneurship. I believe therapy can and should be a safe and non-judgmental space that empowers individuals to be able to push their own limits and views of themselves, in all aspects of their personal and professional lives. Being able to embrace oneself and each other is one of the strongest things a person can learn to do.

Therapy can seem daunting; you have to become vulnerable before you will start seeing benefits. For many, this is more anxiety producing than not. You might not know what to expect. You might have had a bad experience with a prior therapist. You might feel hopeless, like no amount of therapy can help you. You can be helped. It’s likely that you have an issue in your life that is causing you ambivalence, or else you wouldn’t be seeking therapy. To have ambivalence means you are uncertain about your life in the now, and choices you must make to manifest the future you want are causing you depression, fear, and/or anxiety.

While some of the issues leading us to start psychotherapy might be relieved relatively quickly, I have found that most of our issues are more complex and require time and the right attention for us to effectively work through them. I believe the best work we have ahead of us isn’t merely to alleviate your negative symptoms, but to help create real, deep, and lasting change; change that helps elevate us closer to our greatest potential. I strive to create the connection, bond, and sense of care needed for us to do this work together.

We are all shaped by our life experiences, our social connections, and our individual personality traits. No one is the same, therefore as a therapist I cannot go in to a session with any agenda beyond eagerness to learn through curiosity and empathy. My Clients are the experts in their own life. My goal is for my clients to live rich, full and meaningful lives, and only my clients can decide what that means for them.

When life feels presents us with stress, whether it be from anxiety, depression, or trauma, it is not uncommon to feel overwhelmed and a sense that our lives have become unmanageable. My greatest satisfaction comes with assisting individuals in recognizing their power to grow and thrive. I assist my clients, who include adolescents and adults, in finding ways to change their relationship to thoughts and emotions and develop a stronger sense of self, establishing core values, and creating an action plan linked to goals based on those values.

The human condition is stressful for everyone right now. Healthcare providers, LGBTQ2SIA + and those with chronic pain/medical illness are feeling it more than ever. Depression, anxiety and trauma responses can be overlooked/minimized. What you are experiencing is real and you deserve the time, space and support to explore this. Are your thoughts, feelings and behaviors getting in the way of your relationships/work/goals/well-being? Are you taking better care of others than you are of yourself? Is it time to move beyond surviving and begin thriving? If so, perhaps it's time to reach out for a helping hand. All are welcome here.

We each live in a world that has pressured us to be a certain way, look a certain way, have a particular job or partner, or live our faith in a certain way. Maybe you feel like you've never fit in, maybe you've never wanted to and have risked sacrificing the community you've known as a result. Maybe you've got questions about what You really think or what You really want, and are at a crossroads. My favorite clients are those who are seeking greater self-understanding and acceptance, are wanting closer relationships, and who want to find what their own gut says to do next, but are scared of what it might cost them. Freedom seekers.
