It’s a Marathon Not a Sprint
Outside of work Lindsay is devoted to spending time with her family, including husband, two children, and dog. She is an avid runner and enjoys participating in races — marathons in particular. She has run multiple half-marathons and even completed a full marathon. Lindsay believes that training for a marathon is a lot like taking care of your mental health. It is not always easy, but the important thing is to never give up.
Reaching out for help is a huge accomplishment and something to be proud of. If you are ready, please take that first step of your mental health marathon and reach out today to schedule your first visit with Lindsay.
