Hi! My name is Lindsay and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) licensed in Missouri with over 7 years of experience working as a mental health counselor.
I have had the opportunity to work with clients with varied presenting issues such as anxiety, depression, relationship issues, and trauma. I absolutely love what I do.
Originally from Arkansas, I moved to Missouri during the summer of 2009 to obtain my masters in Counseling. I received my undergraduate degree at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, AR, and my masters degree at the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary in Springfield, MO. My Christian faith has been an important part of my counseling practice. I worked for several years in a private Christian counseling practice, and I enjoyed having the opportunity to learn how to meld my faith and counseling approach in both my undergraduate training and in seminary.
Seeking counseling can sometimes be a little scary. It is normal to feel that way. I want to tell you that I am proud that you are here and have made this step. I believe that you are the experts on your own life, and I see my role as coming alongside you to help you develop tools, and work through feelings and thoughts, in order to help you feel better, and experience greater wellness in your mental health and in your relationship. My counseling approach is eclectic but combines cognitive-behavioral, person-centered, solution-focused, and existential counseling theories. The bottom line is, I care about you and look forward to tailoring my approach to your relationship's specific needs. I understand that total health includes mental, physical, and spiritual health.
Outside of my work as a therapist, I teach psychology at the community college level. I also enjoy playing music, cooking, spending time with my husband and puppy (Coco), and running!

I would highly recommend Lindsay. I was matched with her and she got back with me even though it was on a weekend. I think she could sense the desperation in my messages. I can honestly say I’m not sure I would have made it these last few months without her counsel. I really appreciate her.
