Lindsey A. Remegi, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker 

Staff Psychotherapist

Lindsey Remegi is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and psychotherapist at The Aspen Center. Lindsey earned her Bachelor of Science in Social Work from the University of Iowa.  Lindsey continued her education and earned her Masters of Social Work at Washington University in St. Louis with a concentration in mental health.

 

Lindsey entered the University of Iowa knowing she wanted to pursue a career in social work with the goal of becoming a therapist.  Lindsey geared all her education towards her degree in social work and human relations, allowing her to develop the educational foundation she needed for her future as a therapist.

 

During her time at the University of Iowa, Lindsey was involved with Ronald McDonald House and Dance Marathon, experiences that furthered her desire to help others through difficult life events.

 

While at the University of Iowa, Lindsey completed a practicum at a residential facility for children and teenagers with mental and behavioral health problems called Tanager Place.  It was here that Lindsey found her passion for working with the youth population.

 

During her graduate training at Washington University in St. Louis, Lindsey completed a year-long practicum at Family Care Health Centers, where she worked with adults, children, families, and couples who were struggling with important and stressful life events.  In addition, Lindsey ran a group focused on weight loss and self-image.

 

Following the completion of her Masters degree, Lindsey worked for TASC, an agency whose mission is to help individuals with mental illness in the criminal justice system.  Lindsey served at Illinois Youth Center-St. Charles, a detention center housing males aged 13—21. Here, Lindsey provided individual therapy, case management, and daily group therapy for a caseload of 20 young incarcerated men.

 

After her time working with incarcerated youth, Lindsey served at Thresholds, a community mental health agency, where she worked with individuals with severe and persistent mental illness.  Through therapy and case management, Lindsey helped her caseload live successfully in the community and manage their mental illness.

 

Lindsey has experience working with various populations including adults, young adults, couples, families, and children.  Lindsey’s interests include, but are not limited to, working with individuals diagnosed with depression and/or anxiety, working with individuals and families through life transitions, and working on teen and young adult issues.

 

Additionally, Lindsey is trained and certified in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT).  Lindsey uses a DBT-informed method to teach her patients behavioral skills in order to increase motivation and develop a happier and more balanced life.  Skills are centered around 4 modules of skills training and will be beneficial for individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, substance disorders, borderline personality disorder, eating disorders, and PTSD.

Lindsey has worked at the Aspen Center since 2016.
