I look forward to hearing from you and seeing where our work together takes us!

Lindsey Ferris, MFT Intern

Pronouns: She/Her

Lindsey grew up with a tremendous desire and natural curiosity to understand all the different
ways people experience life. During her time working in a variety of fast tempo and high stress positions and environments, she saw the positive power that good therapy can have on a person’s mental, physical, and relational health. Lindsey followed her desire to help others and pursued a new calling. With a Bachelor’s in Communications from Western Washington University already achieved, Lindsey went back to school to pursue her Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from Capella University. Since then, Lindsey has deeply enjoyed helping others navigate life’s toughest seasons with care and without judgement.

Lindsey enjoys working with couples, individuals, and families that are struggling with issues such as anxiety (social and generalized), depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), or trauma and PTSD. She also works well with teens and those navigating adjustments and changes in life such as relationship conflicts, divorce, relocation, job changes, and more. Lindsey meets all her clients with empathy, validation of lived experiences, and respect for the entire system the client is part of.

Part of Lindsey’s work is helping her clients learn tools to be more self-compassionate and self-aware when addressing current problems. She believes that the issues and events we experience in life that cause us to struggle and feel pain impact the entirety of our lives. Our whole system can suffer, including our mind, body, relationships, workplace, social environment, cultural view, and family. Working from this perspective, Lindsey finds the systemic models such as Strategic Family Therapy, Bowen Family Systems theory, and Emotions Focused Therapy very effective. These therapy models support her approach to change as a model of self-compassion, understanding,
observation, and implementation through trying new ways of interacting that are aligned with the desired outcome and goal of therapy.

Lindsey works collaboratively with her clients towards understanding these dynamics in order to help move towards the changes and shifts her clients want to see happen. Her intention is to help empower her clients to make sense of the “why” behind certain behaviors believing that understanding leads to empowerment and is the preparation to making changes and begin healing.

Lindsey is bachelor-level clinician and mental health counselor intern. She is supervised by Danielle Scarsella-Gonia, LMFT (LF60835868; NPI number 1740653120).
