Providing clarity on diagnosis and tailored recommendations.
Lindsay Lennertz, Psy.D.
My focus in therapy depends very much on the individual, family, or group of individuals that I am working with and the unique life story and strengths with which they come in to therapy. Having been a Spanish teacher and otherwise worked within elementary and grade schools, I take into account the systems (family, school, culture, etc.) that the people I work with are a part of, and tailor my interventions to meet their needs within the framework of their lives. With an array of experiences working with different age groups in different parts of the world (Peace Corps volunteer in Africa, teaching English in Taiwan, interning in El Salvador), these life events enable me to provide culturally and socially sensitive interventions that are collaborative and supportive of individuals and their communities. I am well-versed in crisis situations, having worked with inpatient hospital and juvenile prison populations, using outreach methods to meet the needs of those coming to outpatient clinics, and also am familiar with home-based, school-based, and work-based forms of therapy. I am constantly striving to improve my services through specialty trainings, and am currently learning about Somatic Experiencing Therapy and Trauma Informed Yoga Therapy.
