Professional statement

Liz Lindgren is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker located in Providence, RI. Liz has over 17 years of experience working with teenagers, young adults, adults and families. Many of her clients would like to make better sense of who they are and how they came to be or break patterns that are not working for them in their life or within their families.

Liz’s approach to working with clients stems from a belief that everyone is equipped with natural strength and resilience to get through challenges. Her style values understanding the nuances of who a person is and how they see the world. Liz works through a lens that honors identity, community, family of origin, and the impact of systemic barriers as powerful contributors towards lived experience. Her background in family and community work holds the people and spaces that are meaningful to clients in the room during sessions, and grounds individuals and families as part of broader societal structures, groups, and belief systems.

Liz has a BSW from Providence College, an MSW from New York University and has earned certificates in family therapy from the Ackerman Institute for the Family and Therapy Training Boston. Additionally, she was the Director of Social Work at Rocking the Boat, a community based organization in the Bronx. Liz lives in Providence with her spouse and daughter.

Message to clients

I am inspired by peoples' capacity to confront the obstacles in their lives, and believe that building a trusting therapeutic relationship creates the freedom to fully do this. I use a relational approach grounded in the view that each person brings unique strengths to therapy and that we are all part of a complex ecosystem that shapes us and the way we feel. Our work together brings to light the patterns, structures, experiences and stories that have led to and complicated our happiness so that there is momentum to interact with them in new ways. It is a true privilege to join with clients to create meaningful shifts in their lives, and I look forward to the potential of supporting you in your process.
