Licensed Professional Counselor and Supervisor
Hi, I’m Lindsey Irons. I am both a Licensed Professional Counselor and an LPC supervisor.
After attending Rhodes College in Memphis, TN, I received my Masters from The University of Texas in Austin. I have been a licensed Professional counselor (LPC) since 2004 and a supervisor of LPC-Interns since 2008. After many years in the non-profit world working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors, and adolescence and families in crisis, I went into private practice. I host three office suites and rent out to other highly skilled and professional therapists. If I’m not the right fit, I can help you find them.
For Clients: I provide effective relational therapy on a private pay basis. I believe the relationship between therapist and client is the key to positive outcomes. The safety and confidentiality of the therapeutic relationship allow clients the freedom to explore their past to understand their present and create a happier future. If you are interested in finding out more about me or the therapeutic process, please contact me. I also have several highly qualified LPC-Interns that are willing and able to provide therapy on a sliding scale basis.
For LPC-Interns: Irons Counseling and Supervision is a great place to gain your supervision and therapeutic experience. Graduate school is just the beginning of your amazing journey to become a therapist. You have the book knowledge now but supervision is where you learn what to do with all of it and how to incorporate it into practice. We will also work to develop the WHOLE you. The therapist part of you with the non-therapist so that you can go out into your daily life without analyzing everyone and everything you see. Trust me, finding the balance here will make all the difference. I supervise those employed outside of ICS and I hire Interns to work in my practice. If you are ready to start supervision, please consider ICS.
Hi! Congrats on taking that scary/awkward first step towards healing- searching for a therapist. I know it can be daunting, but I hope you’ll find your efforts are definitely worthwhile.
I’m here to offer you a warm, non-judgmental space to embark or continue on your mental health journey. Whether you are experiencing stress from everyday life, difficulty with relationships/life transitions, or more significant mental illness impacting your functioning, I believe we can get you to a better place. As we work together, I will be here to genuinely celebrate your success with you. When we hit the inevitable speed bumps on the path to your healing, know that I will be here to encourage and support you. You have the strength and the ability to progress towards your goals, and I am committed to holding the space for you to make that progress.
As a recovering people pleaser myself, I know it can be tempting to minimize your struggles in therapy. You can trust that I will be here to encourage you to share all of yourself with me- the good, the bad, and the ugly! We will likely share some tears together along the way, and hopefully some laughs, too!
About me: I completed my Masters Degree in Counseling from Fordham University in New York City in 2013. After completing my counseling degree, I spent three months in Thailand completing a yoga teacher training course, which led me to teach yoga in 20 different yoga studios across eight different countries. Having this breadth of experience helps me to think “outside the box” and utilize creativity in our therapy sessions. Prior to venturing into private practice, I worked with incarcerated individuals through the Texas Department of Criminal Justice- so there’s not much you can tell me that I haven’t heard already! Perhaps the only title I hold more dear than “therapist” is that of “mom” to my two small children. Both personally and professionally, I have a passion for helping individuals in their journey to becoming parents.
