JOURNEY TO HEALING AND MINDFUL LIVING

Lindsay.jpg

ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Lindsay Herdman (she/her). I'm so glad you found my practice. I offer psychotherapy to adult women in New Hampshire and Maine. I provide telehealth, or teletherapy, to all clients.

 

I enjoy offering a caring, non-judgmental, and safe space to explore challenges and utilize your strengths to help you cope effectively, be present, and get the most out of your life.

 

If you often find yourself feeling angry, sad, worried, numb, or like you are living in "autopilot" mode and just going through the motions, I will work collaboratively with you to help you reclaim your life. I believe that living a healthy, balanced, mindful life with good boundaries can completely transform your day-to-day experience to one filled with gratitude, happiness, and a sense of calm.

MY PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

When it comes to your health and overall well-being, it’s important to have a knowledgeable professional you can turn to. 

With a Master's Degree in Social Work from the University of New Hampshire and more than 12 years of experience, I have training and expertise in women's mental health, with a focus on treating anxiety, depression, ADHD, mood disorders, trauma, and adverse childhood experiences.


I am a licensed independent clinical social worker and Master’s level alcohol and drug counselor in the state of New Hampshire. (LICSW #1814 and MLADC #0930)
As an MLADC, I also have expertise in treating substance use disorders, both to individuals coping with substance use disorders and for family members who are impacted by their loved one's addictive behaviors.

I am also a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Maine (CSW #LC23383)

I am a LGBTQIA+ Ally, and Kink/Poly/BDSM Informed

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY

I am trained in EMDR Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Mindfulness. I utilize evidenced based therapeutic techniques tailored to your needs to facilitate change.

ABOUT EMDR THERAPY

Guiding You On the Path of Self-Healing

EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences.  Repeated studies show that by using EMDR therapy people can experience the benefits of psychotherapy that once took years to make a difference. It is widely assumed that severe emotional pain requires a long time to heal.  EMDR therapy shows that the mind can in fact heal from psychological trauma much as the body recovers from physical trauma.  When you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound.  If a foreign object or repeated injury irritates the wound, it festers and causes pain.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  EMDR therapy demonstrates that a similar sequence of events occurs with mental processes.  The brain’s information processing system naturally moves toward mental health.  If the system is blocked or imbalanced by the impact of a disturbing event, the emotional wound festers and can cause intense suffering.  Once the block is removed, healing resumes.  Using the detailed protocols and procedures learned in EMDR therapy training sessions, clinicians help clients activate their natural healing processes.

Good Faith Estimates

Under Section 2799B-6 of the Public Health Service Act, health care providers and health care facilities are required to inform individuals who are not enrolled in a plan or coverage or a Federal health care program, or not seeking to file a claim with their plan or coverage both orally and in writing of their ability, upon request or at the time of scheduling health care items and services, to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” of expected charges.

You have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your medical care will cost

Under the law, health care providers need to give patients who don’t have insurance or who are not using insurance an estimate of the bill for medical items and services.

  • You have the right to receive a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of any non-emergency items or services. This includes related costs like medical tests, prescription drugs, equipment, and hospital fees.

  • Make sure your health care provider gives you a Good Faith Estimate in writing at least 1 business day before your medical service or item. You can also ask your health care provider, and any other provider you choose, for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule an item or service.

  • If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill.

  • Make sure to save a copy or picture of your Good Faith Estimate. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit www.cms.gov/nosurprises
