Lindsay Westcott MSW/RSW joins Impact Healthcare and has worked with adults, children and families for over 15 years in a variety of settings. She also has a special interest in women's mental health.
She believes that every individual who walks through her door is unique and so is their situation. People come to therapy for a variety of reasons and she is committed to working with clients to create a tailored approach that meets their needs.
Working with individuals in a one-to-one environment to provide support in areas such as worry, sadness, social skills and emotional regulation. Lindsay strives to provide a supportive atmosphere where she can work together with you to create a positive therapeutic relationship. She provides support in areas such as: worry/anxiety, pre and postnatal anxiety, sadness/depression, stress and emotional regulation.
When working with children*, Lindsay uses a variety of games, hands on activities and visual aids during our sessions to engage children and youth of all ages. When working with youth and children she strongly encourages parent(s) to join the session for the last 10 minutes to share successes and take aways from the session.
*Please note the first session is dependent on the child's age and is usually parent(s) only.
Just as all families can look different so can family counselling. Lindsay works with families in a variety ways including; parent coaching, improving family communication styles, supporting families through difficult phases and/or transitions and co-parenting plans. Sessions can vary from the entire family, siblings, parent(s) and child(ren) and parent(s) only.
