Get to Know Lyndsey (she/her)

I work primarily with young adults and adults who struggle with eating disorders of all types, but I also have extensive training to treat and support the often co-occurring disorders that can accompany eating disorders, such as anxiety, depression, and past trauma. My clinical work and years of experience have shaped my therapeutic practice in a way that attends to the entire continuum of my patient’s care. From the initial meeting, to the celebration that successful termination brings, I work hard to foster trust and learning as we navigate eating disorder recovery together. While typically described as a warm and compassionate therapist by my colleagues, I also know that changing behaviors, thoughts, and leaning into difficult emotions may require a direct and honest approach to better motivate a person towards the change they may want and need.

I rely on my training in evidenced-based practices such as CBT, DBT, and RO DBT, for which I have been intensively trained to provide, to address the needs of my patients in a systematic way and ensure that real and lasting change is occurring. 

My patients are the most courageous, hard-working, and brilliant individuals that I’ve had the honor of walking alongside and I am always excited to start a new therapeutic relationship and begin the process together towards a life that feels worth living and sharing.

I attended Ohio University in 2004 where I earned my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, and The University of Akron in 2006, earning my Master of Arts in Community Counseling.

I am an independently licensed professional clinical counselor with my supervisory designation (LPCC-S) in the state of Ohio by the Counselor and Social Work Board (CSWMFT), and I’ve spent most of my 14-year career since then dedicated to the specialty of the treatment of eating disorders. Prior to joining EBHA, I worked for over a decade at The Center for Balanced Living and The Emily Program Columbus, including serving as the Director of Intensive Outpatient Programs, Assistant Director of Partial Hospitalization Program, as well as an Outpatient therapist. I’ve worked with hundreds of patients and families over these years as they determine how to together fight the eating disorder while healing from the distress is causes to the mind, body, relationships, and overall functioning of the person.
