Lindsey Schafer, LMSW
Lindsey received her Master’s in Social Work from Columbia University with a clinical focus in hopes of assisting individuals on improving their mental health and overall wellbeing. Lindsey has worked as a case manager while receiving her undergraduate degree in Syracuse, NY and has experience assisting individuals struggling with mental health disabilities and substance abuse. She also spent time as a research assistant at the Rutgers University School of Social Work working on a study on children in the NJ foster care system. Prior to graduation, Lindsey worked in Human Resources, as a teacher’s assistant and as a peer mentor where she helped incoming freshmen become acclimated to their first year of college life.
Lindsey has experience working with diverse groups in one-on-one therapy, group therapy and case management. Lindsey enjoys working with couples and young adults struggling with anxiety and depression by learning coping skills, becoming more mindful and emphasizing self-love and self-care. Lindsey is also passionate about working with the LGBTQIA communities and focusing on sexuality and gender identity. Lindsey’s goal as a clinician is to help individuals discover their confidence and capabilities by encouraging people to be mindful in their everyday lives.
Lindsey loves walking around, exploring the city and trying new restaurants, but she also enjoys decompressing by focusing on self-care by doing deep-breathing, spending time with friends and family and doing yoga. Lindsey hopes to foster a comfortable and peaceful environment for her clients by creating a safe space for individuals to disconnect from the busy New York City life.
