My name is Lindsay Powelson (she/her), MA, LPC, NCC, CCTP-II, CSTIP. I graduated from Lindenwood University with a Master of Arts in Professional Counseling in 2004. I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor in the State of Missouri since 2006. I am a National Board Certified Counselor, Certified Clinical Trauma Professional Level II and Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional. I hold full membership with WPATH. I have worked in the mental health field for over 18 years.
My expertise is related to working with individuals, couples and families that experience hardships such as child protective services, family court, school based challenges, adoption and foster care, long term care, fertility, PCOS, gender identity, LGBTQIA+, trauma, as well as symptoms of depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and disordered eating. I specialize in working with all ages, as well as couples and families; in all of the ways they are formed.
My therapeutic lens is person centered and action oriented. I am a collaborative and goal focused clinician who understands you are the expertise of your life. I will assist and objectively guide you through interpersonal changes. I believe in love, acceptance, equality, kindness, respect and the power of finding your authentic self. Through this work we will focus on a body/mind connection and improve the ability to regulate and stabilize emotions. My goal is to assist in working towards healing and emotional wellness and regaining a new perspective on life.
