Lindsay Daskalopoulos is a licensed clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience in mental health healing and therapy. Her specialties include life transitions, existential challenges, loss of meaning and purpose, identity questions, cultural adjustment, depression, anxiety, loss and grief, and trauma. She enjoys working with meditators and artists and brings her own experience with meditation and creativity to her work. She has deep expertise working with college and graduate students, international students, and young adults.
Lindsay's therapeutic lens is psychodynamic and integrates mindfulness practices, meditation, breath work, and compassion orientated therapy into her work. She has had a life long interest in Buddhist psychology and sees much of human suffering and the potential for deep healing from this perspective. Her practice is collaborative, holistic, and flexible taking into account all aspects of wellbeing, the emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, and creative.
Lindsay received a BA in Art History from McGill University and worked in the arts for ten years. During this time she developed an interest in understating human suffering and healing which she felt was intimately linked to her study of art history and her creative pursuits in street scene photography and the book arts. Her creative explorations grew into an interest in the art of healing through words and relationship and she began working in the field at McLean Hospital; she received a Masters of Social Work from Simmons University. She completed post graduate fellowships at Princeton and Harvard in student mental health, and was a psychotherapist at Wheaton College and Brown CAPS as well as in community mental health and hospital settings before starting her private practice in 2004.
