Eileen Kinney Lindgren, LMFT
Counselor: Children, Adolescents, Parenting, Adults
Eileen gets that our primary relationships form the blueprint for relationships throughout our lives. That is why she is passionate about early support for children and adolescents and for helping parents show up as their best selves during this critical developmental time. As a mother herself, she especially enjoys bringing a loving and curious perspective to areas in the parent-child relationship that may feel stuck or particularly difficult. Experiencing even tiny shifts in these relational dynamics can bring more connectivity and regulation to the child’s most important relationship, which can positively affect development. Eileen’s calm, authentic presence helps clients feel safe and together they explore issues and identify roadblocks that can get in the way of realizing one’s full potential. Whether it is through play therapy, sandtray, and creative expression with children, or mindful talk therapy with adolescents and adults, Eileen works collaboratively and at the client’s own pace. Her interdisciplinary approach draws on attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology, mindfulness, strengths-based approaches, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and body-based work.
Areas of Specialty
Yoga, hiking, backpacking, road biking, cooking and spending time with my family and new puppy.
I started my own therapeutic journey in hopes of creating a loving and connected environment for my growing family. I knew I had some obstacles to work through to make that possible. I found the process to be so personally transformational that I decided to make it my life’s work. Now my days bring me joy as I watch others do the same.
