About Lindsay Mathews, Ph.D.

In therapy, I believe the therapeutic relationship itself to be an agent of change. By building trust within a safe space, therapy will focus on increasing tolerance and understanding of difficult emotions. The therapeutic relationship is ever-evolving, and my main goal as your therapist is to work collaboratively to remove obstacles to growth and to promote deep, enduring change. In doing so, therapy can achieve the greater aim of promoting the true self. I believe curiosity, authenticity, humor, spontaneity, and a non-judgmental lens are crucial in facilitating corrective emotional experiences.

My Approach

As a Licensed Psychologist, I have been trained in various modalities, including psychodynamic psychotherapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Relational Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing. However my approach to the therapeutic encounter aims to embrace the uniqueness of each patient’s inner world, and explore it together. Often this involves slowing down, examining current experiences and stressors, as well as core underlying conflicts.

Professional Background

I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology with Forensic Specialty from John Jay College and the Graduate Center CUNY. During my clinical training, I worked with justice-involved adolescents, children/adolescents and their families, and adults of diverse backgrounds dealing with a broad range of mental health issues. I have worked as a Clinical Supervisor for the past three years at Rikers Island providing assessment, evaluation, and treatment for individuals with serious mental illnesses on specialized treatment units. I have developed a unique specialty in working with individuals with trauma histories, personality disorders, women’s issues, and gender identity and sexuality issues.
