Professional statement

Lindsey Gould is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and works with adults who struggle with worry, fear, and anxiety. This includes cancer patients and survivors, and caregivers. As a cancer survivor herself, she understands the overwhelming emotions that can come along with cancer treatment. Her style is genuine, warm, and approachable. She likes to find the joy and humor in life and often applies that to her therapy sessions.

Lindsey's approach is based in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an approach that focuses on helping clients find relief from suffering and building fuller, richer lives. ACT uses mindfulness, self-compassion, and values to help move a client toward the life they want. She teaches grounding tools that can be practiced in stressful situations.

After receiving her MSW from Western Michigan University, she worked in a group practice that saw a diverse group of clients in all age ranges. She worked with clients who experienced stress, anxiety, depression, chronic illness, emotional pain, and traumatic histories.

In her spare time Lindsey volunteers on her local library's Board of Trustees as she believes that libraries are a vital part of a community.

Lindsey provides a safe, compassionate environment. Her space is non-judgmental, inclusive, anti-racist, and affirming of all identities. Because she offers online therapy, she can work with you no matter where you are in Michigan, Florida, South Carolina or Vermont. If you need to use your insurance, she can only accept Michigan-based insurance.


Message to clients

You get stressed out so easily. You worry about everything, even when you don't have to. Sometimes even the small things feel like too much. You want to make real changes in your life, but you don't even know where to begin. The thing is, you can't change your life until you change what you're doing. Change can be scary and difficult, especially when you don't know where to start. You need someone to help you take those steps.

Yes, life is full of hard things, but you don’t have to let them control you. As far as I know, there is no way to stop thoughts, feelings, or memories from occurring, but I can teach you strategies that help you cope with those difficult things, rather than trying to ignore or change them. My job is to help you identify and use your strengths so you can move toward your goals and live life by your values. If you're not sure what those are, I'll help you figure that out, too.

We may not be able to control what’s happening around us, but we can control how we react to those situations. I’m here to help you learn how to do that.
