Dr. Christi Lindsay
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
I love working with people and helping them grow, overcome obstacles, and discover themselves. I am here to help you with whatever you are struggling with - so you can feel better and be more settled and in control of your life and your future. I feel privileged to be part of this process and look forward to working with you.
I work primarily online through video-conferencing, a format made available to us through new technologies. Technology provides amazing flexibility - you can meet with me from the comfort of your own home and without commuting to an office, with all the same benefits of an in-office appointment, focused on the therapeutic relationship. If you are struggling with something and need a partner to help you along your path, please contact me and we can see whether we might be a good fit for each other.
A little about my background: I am a Doctor of Psychology and Licensed Clinical Psychologist in both New York and California. I have more than 10 years of experience in numerous and varied clinical settings working with a wide range of clientele including college and university counseling centers, County Mental Health facilities, and private counseling environments.
I have experience with adults and adolescents and expertise in anxiety, depression, relationship issues, women's issues, stress, and employ a mixed-methods approach including psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, and time-limited methodologies, depending on the needs of the individual client. All that is to say that I have the training and experience to help you work through whatever challenges you are facing.
Let's face it; relationships are hard. They take commitment and time and energy and work in order to succeed and grow. Sometimes messages can be confusing or intentions unclear; sometimes communication can get bogged down in hurt feelings or misunderstandings; at times it may be unclear whether a relationship is worth saving. I can help you identify and understand the patterns and cycles of your relationship and develop communication or behavioral strategies to break unhealthy patterns and begin to develop more positive new ones that will foster more happiness, more connection, and more positivity. This change will inevitably impact every other area of you and your partners' lives!
Early adulthood is an incredibly complex and often confusing time. The scale and scope of the choices required in love, career, identity, and family during the transition from childhood to independence can be overwhelming. I will work with you to clarify your values, goals, and needs, guiding you through the process of uncovering who you and who you want to be so you can make purposeful and positive choices to move you toward the future you want as the person you want to become. I can help you manage your relationships with friends, family, and romantic partners. I can help you process and overcome hurt in your past so you can be better ready for pleasure in your future, to process frustration in your present so you cna be ready for successes to come.
STRESS AND ANXIETY
The modern world we live in is full of amazing technological advancements and organizational wonders, but it is also more complex and demanding than ever before. The myriad competing demands of our lives, how busy we are, the continual pressure to do and be more creates enormous stress for all of us. This stress can escalate into anxiety and the added strain of these issues easily begins to short-circuit our ability to function at our best, to feel good, to maintain relationships and responsibilities. I can help you understand the internal and external forces creating these negative feelings, and together we can find strategies for minimizing stress and anxiety so you can feel better.
