Lindsay brings years of experience working with children, adolescents, schools, and young adults to The Sibley Group. She has both broad and specialized training experience including approaches in trauma-informed therapy, attachment work, treatment of anxiety, and parent-child relationship engagement. She goes above and beyond in her work to help children, adolescents, and young adults with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges.
The foundation of the therapeutic process begins with a trusting, supportive, and accepting relationship with a therapist. To that end, it is Lindsay’s priority to make her clients feel safe and comfortable as they explore themselves, their relationships, their thought patterns, and their experiences. This approach enables Lindsay to develop strong connections with her clients and their families.
Lindsay works with children, adolescents, and young adults who have behavioral concerns, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, peer conflicts, challenges in school, social skill deficits, difficulties navigating life transitions, and other issues. Through a relational and positive approach, she incorporates talk therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapies (directive and non-directive), art therapy, and mindfulness. She has worked in public and therapeutic school settings and outpatient clinics, providing individual and group therapy, parent coaching, crisis intervention, behavior management, and advocacy for special education accommodations. Lindsay is a Registered Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator, and uses this video-based curriculum to help parents increase their understanding of their child’s needs, enhance feelings of security, and support their child in regulating their emotions.
Lindsay is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in the District of Columbia and a Licensed Certified Social Worker-Clinical (LCSW-C) in Maryland. She received her BA in Psychology at the Pennsylvania State University and her MSW at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.
