About

Hey, it's Lindsey

I’m the MIND Performance Coach and it is my mission to make YOU see what I've learned the hard way: the fastest and easiest path to success is through prioritizing mental health.  As a Performance Coach, efficiency is my jam. But having struggled with anxiety and depression in the past, focus seemed to come and go depending on what was going on around me.  When I was diagnosed with ADHD in my mid-thirties, it was a blessing and a curse to have an answer that finally made sense but to have to have an entirely new set of skills to have to create.  I found along the way that many of my symptoms are things that others struggle with as well and I was able to establish creative solutions to work around the diagnosis that I knew could help other high achievers like me.

MY APPROACH

Growth Is Only Earned

I’m not here to diagnose you or be your therapist: I’m here to coach you through getting your mind right so your health, relationships, and business can thrive. You are in charge of the way your brain works, and you alone have the power to make radical shifts that will transform you into the kind of leader you’ve always wanted to be.

I BELIEVE

Mental Health Education is Non-Negotiable

When I was first diagnosed with anxiety and depression at the age of 18, I ignored it. Mental health wasn’t something that was discussed in my family in any positive way and I ridiculed the idea of therapy. Instead of addressing my mental health, I poured all my energy into being a high achiever. And it worked... for a while

I studied Hospitality Management at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (GO Rebels!) and built a thriving career in operations management for properties like The Mirage, Wynn and Encore, and the Cosmopolitan. Despite my steady climb to success, I struggled to enjoy what I’d accomplished.  I had done everything I thought I was supposed to do — get a degree, get married, buy a house all before thirty! But everything I was building was based on achieving to keeping up appearances as a desperate attempt to hide the personal turmoil I was experiencing when I'd go ho home.  When I left work I had to face that I was in a destructive relationship, had isolated myself from others, and my health was deteriorating. 

I loved the work, but as rates of anxiety and depression skyrocketed during the pandemic, I saw that  our mental health system was not built to accomodate the new level of need.  I focused my sights on helping companies to make bigger and faster changes. I knew the importance of helping companies better understand and implement small positive mental health changes in their organizations: it would also be shifting one of the largest social structures that reinforce habits that can lead to mental deterioration and burnout. 

When I decided to address my mental health for the first time, it was earth-shaking. I realized the common denominator in everything that wasn’t working in my life was ME, due in large part to a lack of education or awareness of how I could have better been taking care of myself mentally. As I dove head first into my personal work, I realized helping others like me was my calling, and earned my Master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. I opened my first private practice where I specialized in helping high achieving leaders make better sense of their personal and professional lives.

As I complete dual licensure as a Marriage and Family Therapy Intern and Clinical Professional Counselor Intern, I have also specialized my training  in a variety of mental health modalities that help to inform my coaching, including:

  • Cognitive Behavior Therapy

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy

  • Gottman's Couples Therapy

  • Integrative Medicine and Nutrition for Mental Health

  • Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma treatment
     

As The MIND Performance Coach, I’m on a mission to disrupt our current mental health habits with education, approachability, and accessibility because I've seen personally how impactful and necessary this work is.  Mental Health education should be available to everyone, not just mental health professionals and certainly before one is in a crisis situation. By making mental health our greatest asset rather than a secret dirty word, I believe we can create stronger relationships, more compassionate leaders, and happier humans across all socioeconomic backgrounds and worldviews.
