Professional statement

Lindsey Gould is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who works with cancer patients and survivors, as well as those suffering from anxiety. As a cancer survivor herself, she understands the overwhelming emotions that can come along with cancer treatment. Her style is warm, compassionate, and non-judgmental.

Lindsey's approach is based in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, an evidence-based 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. After being diagnosed with a rare cancer she decided to direct her focus toward cancer patients and survivors.

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. She offers remote therapy sessions which allows her to see clients anywhere in Michigan.


Message to clients

I specialize in working with cancer patients and survivors struggling with fear and worry about the future. As a cancer survivor myself, I understand the firestorm of emotions that can accompany diagnosis and treatment.

Cancer treatment can be brutal and overwhelming. Not only do you have side effects, but you're probably experiencing a lot of emotions - fear, worry, sadness, even anger. Perhaps when you try to talk about what you're experiencing, you feel like your fears are being dismissed. Even after you've finished treatment, these side effects and feelings can persist.

I'll help you regain a sense of normality so you can begin living an authentic, meaningful life. When we work together, you'll learn how to take action to face your challenges and do things that make your life better.

I truly understand what cancer diagnosis and treatment is like and I'm happy to work with you. For a free consultation you can call me, text me, or send me an email. I look forward to talking with you.
