Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
My combined experience of training and interning at UCSD Family Medicine in a collaborative care setting, as well as providing therapy at multiple private practice settings since then, has led me to become the educated and empathic therapist I am today. I use a non-judgemental, accepting stance while applying evidence-based practices such as CBT, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy)for couples, DBT-informed treatment, and IPT all from a mindfulness-based approach. As a Marriage and Family Therapist I work from a systemic perspective, so I see my client as not only an individual but as part of a larger working system and connection of relationships. I listen to my clients to hear what they need help with, and use my training to assist in finding solutions from a comprehensive approach. I have worked with treating children, adolescents, adults, and the elderly for a multitude of problems ranging from mood disorders, anxiety, coping with a new medical diagnosis, grief and loss, managing ADHD, to couples counseling and everything in between. During my time at UCSD Family Medicine I found myself especially interested in helping new parents cope with postpartum emotional disorders and became an active member of the non-profit organization Postpartum Health Alliance. In addition to postpartum depression and anxiety, I am specialized in diagnosing and treating adult ADHD. I currently work at A Balanced Life in South Lake Tahoe providing individual, couples, and family counseling. I work with Child Protective Services through A Balanced Life to assist in re-unification of parents and their children. I also run a 6-week Stress Management Workshop through A Balanced Life. I started my own private practice, Lindsay Simon, LMFT, in Olympic Valley, CA. I am grateful every day for the opportunity to live and work in a place that I love and with client's that help me to grow professionally an individually every day.
