Professional statement

Lindsay Butler is a Licensed Professional Counselor with a private practice in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania who is committed to helping teens and adults feel empowered to face and navigate life’s challenges. Many of Lindsay’s clients seek help for anxiety, stress management, negative self-talk, emotion regulation, and life transitions. Lindsay understands that struggling in these areas can make it difficult to engage in life in a meaningful way. Lindsay also enjoys working with college students and young adults that are starting to navigate a career path and find their place in the world.

Lindsay utilizes a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) framework which means she helps clients to recognize how powerful their thoughts can be and how they impact mood and behavior. When thoughts are distorted and accepted as truth, clients are often left feeling anxious, worn out, and not good enough. Lindsay helps clients learn to challenge and reframe negative thoughts leading to a more realistic and healthy mindset. She also draws from her training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness to help clients heal past trauma, regulate big emotions, and find more joy in the present moment.

As a former high school counselor and current clinician, Lindsay has over 13 years of experience helping teens and adults maneuver challenges through her positive, results-oriented, and empowering approach to treatment. Her training as a school counselor allows her to have a thorough understanding of the pressure of school, college, and issues with identity when working with her clients in therapy. Lindsay has worked in various mental health practices gaining experience and training. In the process, she realized her desire to work in a small private practice setting so she could give clients customized care and expertise in helping their struggles.

Lindsay aims to give clients a safe space to exhale, let their walls down, and practice self-care. She focuses on a collaborative relationship with clients, in which they feel heard and understood and are empowered to set and reach goals. Lindsay offers both telehealth and in-person sessions, giving her clients options for a setting that feels most comfortable to them. Lindsay is warm, relatable, and positive. She will be your cheerleader while offering concrete coping skills to face the ups and downs of life.


Message to clients

Taking the steps to find a therapist can be a very vulnerable process. I believe that clients will get further in therapy when they have a strong fit with their therapist. Clients can truly let their walls down when they feel safe and supported. In therapy with me, you will find that I am a real person, not a therapist robot. I am professional and clinically trained and I know how important it is to have someone sitting across from you in therapy that is empathetic, positive, and relatable.

The therapeutic environment I aim to create is safe and validating, which often conflicts with the stiff and cold stigma therapy can have. I don’t take the pain and struggles that are shared with me lightly.

Know that you are brave for seeking therapy and choosing a path that will create better insight, concrete coping skills, and balanced emotional health. In therapy with me, we will face the tough moments, laugh because we all need to smile, celebrate the good, and create a life that is more meaningful. I look forward to connecting with you and helping you on your mental health journey.
