Dr. Lindsey Morrissey
I call Wisconsin home and was excited to return after my doctoral training. Some of my favorite things are creating special memories with my family, connecting with friends, and being in nature. I also enjoy hiking, cooking, reading, and cheering on Wisconsin sports teams. Go Pack Go!
I am a licensed psychologist in the state of Wisconsin. I earned my Ph.D. in counseling psychology from the University of North Dakota and my Master of Arts degree in counseling and student personnel psychology from the University of Minnesota. I completed an APA-accredited pre-doctoral internship at the University of St. Thomas and a post-doctoral residency at the University of Wisconsin La Crosse. My training and clinical work have also extended to community and outpatient settings. I have completed several specialized trainings in perinatal mental health. Through these experiences, I've had the opportunity to work with adults of diverse life experiences, identities, beliefs, and backgrounds.
How I Work
It's important to me that we establish a relationship where you feel safe, heard, and accepted. This is a critical part of what makes counseling effective and allows you the freedom to be who you really are. I want to spend time getting to know you and your story. I believe that we have important experiences and relationships throughout our life that impact us in significant ways. Ultimately, my approach is collaborative and I will adjust to what is most fitting for you. Wherever you are in your journey is okay and welcomed.
We will walk alongside one another as we navigate your concerns and work toward healing. I believe that you are the expert in your own life, even if it might not feel that way in the midst of a storm you are facing.
I want to empower you to reflect and look inward with curiosity, foster compassion for yourself, meaningfully connect with those who matter most, and begin to boldly live out your authentic self.
I know from personal experience that taking the step to begin counseling takes bravery and courage. The fact that you are reading this already indicates that you have that within you. A common thing I hear from clients is that counseling provided an opportunity to take care of themselves, prioritize their own needs, and be fully seen for who they are, sometimes for the first time.
