Meet Our Therapists

Lindsey Fanning 

LMSW, IMH-E® (III)

I truly believe that change happens within the context of relationships; that building a trusting, respectful, and mutually engaging partnership is the best way to create change in therapy. It is my goal to provide a space that honors you as an individual and challenges you to look within and work to become the best version of yourself, however you define that to be.

 

I attended Wayne State University gaining a Master’s Degree in Social Work with a concentration in Interpersonal Practice and End-Of-Life Issues. I have experience providing therapeutic services in educational, outpatient (office), and home-based settings working with children, adults, and family units.

 

My therapeutic focus is relationship-based, concentrating on issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, life transitions, parent-child attachment, and relationship difficulties. My specialties include pregnancy, postpartum, and parenting concerns as well as early childhood educational related issues- including behavior and development.

Using an individualized, strength-based approach, together we will search for understanding and hope. I will follow your lead as we journey toward lasting change together.

Are you or your child feeling misunderstood? Often people come into therapy when their efforts to connect with the people who are most important to them are being misconstrued, leading to strained relationships. In my experience, the key to shifting this dynamic is fostering mutual understanding

through genuine connection and nurturing emotional safety.

 

My specialty is working with young children. I received my Master of Arts in Social Work in 2009 from the School of Social Service Administration at the University of Chicago and my Bachelor of Arts in 2007 from Michigan State University. I have worked with children for over 20 years, predominately in school and home-based therapeutic settings. In addition, I am an Infant Mental Health Specialist and have received certification in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). I have experience

treating issues including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, grief and loss, parenting concerns,

behavioral challenges and parent-child attachment issues.

In my practice, it is of the utmost importance that you and your child feel heard, known, and safe

to share your authentic selves. The courage to do this is the threshold of emotional growth.

Parents and caregivers are the most important relationships in a child’s life. When your child is struggling, it can be difficult to find the right words or know how to respond. I believe that active parent involvement is key to a child’s progress in therapy, and will work closely with you and your child to learn about your family to tailor our sessions to your individual needs.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a graduate degree from the University of Michigan. Over the past 16 years of supporting children and families, I have also received specialized training in working with infants and young children, in particular helping young children and their caregivers process stressful experiences. I utilize a range of strengths-based therapeutic approaches with focus areas that include coping with stressful life events, anxiety, pregnancy and transition to parenthood, disruptive and impulsive behaviors, relationship stress, grief and loss, and parent-child attachment issues. My work centers on supporting parents with research-based strategies to manage children’s challenging behavior.

My approach to therapy is to build a strong trusting relationship with each person that enters my office, allowing for us to dive into the journey of self-exploration and discovery. I believe in working to gain greater insight into the feelings you have and making powerful connections along the way. Life is tough and I am here to help hold those stresses and see the hope while we work through the challenges that you may be experiencing. 

 

I graduated from Wayne State University with my Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work. After graduation, I completed a year-long Fellowship at Yale University. Additionally, I have earned a level III endorsement through the Michigan Association of Infant Mental Health. I have worked with children, adults and families in home, office and school settings. 

 

My areas of therapeutic focus include anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting concerns, attachment and relationship challenges between parents and children. I specialize in pregnancy, postpartum, and childhood behavior, school and emotional difficulties.

 

I believe that having context into how our brains work is a key to lasting change. I will follow along with you on your journey to making the connections, building understanding and creating the lasting changes you desire.
