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.
The experience of being a counselor has provided me with a significant level of gratitude and fullness that I cannot attribute to anything other than the invaluable connections being made in the process. Throughout my professional and personal life, I have seen and felt the pain people
carry, and how debilitating that pain can become over time when there is no relief.
Life is full of various changes and stressors that impact our overall wellbeing and can suddenly become unmanageable. Talk therapy is an avenue that I believe can foster the space for people to practice releasing their own tension, while having the freedom and support to discover who they are, and the vision they have for their lives.
My approach to counseling is rooted in erson-centered and relational-cultural therapy, as I believe people from all walks of life deserve to be met with empathy and an open heart at minimum. I’ve had experience working with individuals struggling with issues around substance use, trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, relationships and an overall wounded connection to themselves. I have training in Trauma-Informed Care as well as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, if those become relevant to the therapeutic process. Living in such a fast-paced world, I greatly value taking the necessary time to stop and process our feelings and experiences, so that we may become more connected to ourselves and potentially heal the discomfort within. My belief is that we all have unique strengths, and through the exploration of them, we can take steps towards a realized potential.
