A Little Look into Lindsay's Story
Lindsay's father is an Irish-immigrant who moved to the U.S. in his late 20's and met her mother. Lindsay was raised in the Chicagoland area with her younger brother and sister. Lindsay is a proud first generation college graduate. Lindsay is also proud of her brother who served in the U.S. Marine Corps, Infantry, at 18 years old.
Lindsay struggled with Dyslexia, Anxiety, and ADHD throughout her life. She recognizes the impact early intervention had on her when it came to dyslexia. She also knows the impact of going undiagnosed with a mental health condition can have. Lindsay was diagnosed with ADHD while in graduate school. Therapy and insight helped Lindsay build her confidence and become the successful business women, therapist, and advocate today.
Becoming a therapist had changed Lindsay's understanding of the world and what we need. Like all of us there are many depths to Lindsay's story and she looks forward to the opportunity of sharing her story and education with you.

A Note to Her Community
"I would like to take a moment to say thank you to every one of my followers and supporters. When it comes to my work as a therapist I learned early on that growth can be uncomfortable. We are able to sit in that un-comfortability best when we have a strong support system. I have had extreme privilege in the space of support. I am one person but I have the strength of many behind me, 530k to be exact! As my career continues to flourish, and new challenges continue to rise I have more and more people in my corner. This note is a reminder to turn away from competing with those around you and instead lift each other up. When the people in our circle, and our community, do well, we all do well! So thank you for supporting me and each success I have. I share with you, because you are the reason it is all possible! You guys are the best and you know I have to say it! Keep baby-stepping your way to bettering your mental health. I know you will also continue to grow and flourish in our own strengths and desires!
