Lindsay Thompson MS, LPC
Founder and Clinical Coordinator
“There are many reasons that we as humans will experience chaos within ourselves and our relationships. Perfectionism, trauma, ignored emotional wounds, and underlying mental health issues are just a few of these reasons. Most people will try to ignore these things, and that may work...for a time. One thing I have come to learn in working with people is that if we don’t address these issues, we can be sure that they will eventually address us, and that can be a painful experience.
My approach to therapy is to provide you with the tools and strategies to be able to explore and process the painful areas of your life without being debilitated by emotional distress. I can teach you how to have balance between thinking and feeling, and help you identify areas where you can start making positive life changes.
Together we can work to dismantle the false parts of yourself that you may have inadvertently constructed out of pain and fear. Then we can identify who you were meant to be and all the purposes that can hold for you.”
