Lindsey Lucius, LCSW
Counselor and Staff coordinator
Welcome! My name is Lindsey and I am a social worker and therapist here at Therapy Austin. With a focus on warmth, genuineness, and humor, my aim is to walk alongside you in your journey of understanding, healing, and growth. When we’re struggling, we may be trying so hard to get rid of suffering that we lose touch with what is most important to us. The therapeutic process can help us grow kinder toward ourselves and learn new ways to approach life. I love to be with people as they make sense of their histories and find ways to connect with their most authentic selves.
I enjoy exploring clients' life experiences that affect how they think, feel, and behave. Bullying, sexual/emotional/physical abuse, invalidating relationships, neglect, grief and loss, and childhood spent in homes of addiction are just a few of the experiences that can impact the way we feel about ourselves and the world. Often, we develop ways to cope with these situations that are adaptive and essential to our survival at the time. However, these ways of coping may no longer work for us in the present. I welcome you to a safe space to explore all of these thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
I have worked with trauma, stress management, relationship difficulties, anxiety, and depression. In therapy sessions, I use EMDR, coping skills, cognitive strategies, mindfulness and self-compassion techniques (a more detailed explanation of these therapies and how they can help can be found on the Types of Treatment page).
I've lived in Austin most of my life and love that Austin is a small town in a medium-sized city. I love cats, spending time outdoors, and staying physically active, whether through yoga, biking, Zumba, or hiking. What I value most in life is people—the stories we share, the relationships we form, and the communities we build.
If you would like to reach me by phone to talk about your needs and how we might work together, please call 512/201-4501, ext. 105. I will return your call within 24 business hours. You can also contact me by filling out an appointment request on the Get Started page. I look forward to hearing from you.
