About
Lindsay Cusack, MSW, LCSW
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in Colorado with over fifteen years of experience working in a variety of settings including community agencies and private practice. I have expertise working with adolescents, adults, and families struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, relationship concerns, bereavement/grieving, behavioral problems, and the emotions surrounding life transitions. I take an integrative approach, most influenced by psychodynamic theory, relational theory, body-mind psychotherapy, and mindfulness practices.

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Jane Addams School of Social Work in 2001 with a Master of Social Work degree. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker since 2003 and I am currently pursuing my PhD in Clinical Social Work at The Institute for Clinical Social Work in Chicago, Illinois. I have completed additional training in treating trauma, body-mind psychotherapy, mindfulness approaches, and psychodynamic psychotherapy.

I began my career working with adolescent girls in a group home setting. In this position I gained experience with a wide range of clinical issues including physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and trauma, and gained much experience with a broad range of emotional and behavioral disorders. I subsequently worked as an in-home family therapist, serving high-risk multi-problem families. In this position I developed expertise with a variety of issues including severe youth conduct disorders, depression, anxiety, parenting concerns, parenting skills, trauma, abuse, and family dysfunction. I began private practice work in 2005, gaining additional expertise with women's issues, anxiety, mood disorders, bereavement, and transitions of young adulthood and adulthood.

I use warmth and empathy to create a safe environment for clients to explore their concerns, come to a deeper understanding of themselves, and to learn new skills. My approach to therapy is both process and goal oriented. I work with clients to build on their existing strengths to help them find more workable solutions to their problems. I draw from a number of therapeutic approaches in my work including family systems, psychodynamic, and cognitive behavioral.

I have also instructed Psychology at the undergraduate level and have presented in the community on topics such as stress management and balancing work and personal life.
