Lindsay Summers, LMSW
Trauma Informed Psychotherapist
Hi! My name is Lindsay Summers and I use she and they pronouns interchangeably. I am a trauma-informed Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) in Maryland. I am originally from a small town outside Pittsburgh, PA, and I received my Master's of Social Work degree from the Catholic University of America in Washington, DC.
My past clinical experience is in crisis intervention and trauma focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT) working with survivors of sexual violence. I have worked with clients experiencing challenges with depression, anxiety, grief, suicidality, and identity.
I practice through a lens of anti-oppression, feminist, and queer theory. I deeply believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and the importance of client-centered therapy that includes and honors all parts of clients' identities. I believe in a body, mind, and spiritual approach to healing through compassion and empathetic listening and support. In sessions, I seek to create as safe a space as possible, allowing for self-exploration and personal growth.
Outside of my role as a therapist, I love writing poetry, binging Netflix, cooking, reading, going to the beach, and spending time with my dog. I look forward to meeting you and supporting you on your journey towards wellness and healing!
