Professional statement

Dr. Lindsay Schnetzer is a licensed clinical psychologist in Providence, RI, offering in-person and virtual therapy sessions. She has extensive experience treating adults aged 18 and older with concerns such as anxiety, trauma, depression, sexuality and gender concerns, and chronic illness. She is particularly dedicated to providing accessible care to young adults and college students who are navigating mental illness while also going to school and transitioning to adulthood. She is passionate about getting to know her clients beyond a diagnosis, and helping them reconnect to what they care about.

In her practice, Dr. Schnetzer combines approaches such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) & Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Her interventions are both insight- and action-oriented, meaning that she guides clients in improving their self-awareness, as well as in identifying steps they want to take to build a richer life.

Message to clients

My therapeutic style is kind and straightforward. Regardless of your diagnosis, my aim is to get to know you as a person – to understand what you love, and what you want to be about in this world. And if you don’t know – helping you discover what that might be. To me, one of the saddest things about mental illness is that it tends to pull people away from who and what they care about. An essential part of treatment then, is helping you to re-connect to these things, even when painful thoughts, emotions, or memories show up.

In my view, a primary benefit of therapy is to hear another person's perspective; someone who can offer observations and guide you in recognizing the choices you have when you're feeling stuck. I know therapy is helping someone when they have a greater sense of agency in their life – when they’re able to see choices, make decisions, and move toward important goals.
