Mental Health Counselor
Lindsay Nejmeh, LMHC | Lindsay is a graduate of the Manhattan College Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling program. Since 2010, she has worked in a variety of settings pertaining to women’s mental health. She began her career at Chances for Children-NY, Inc. providing parent-child treatment with children ages 0-5. Here she received extensive training and supervision while working with underserved families, often with a severe history of trauma. Later, she worked as a home visitor for other evidence based programs at agencies such as Forestdale, Inc. and Volunteers of America, again focusing on parenting and childhood development. She is a firm believer of the importance of attachment and she continues to carry this framework at the core of her practice.
While Lindsay continues to provide play therapy with dyads and children; today she specializes in maternal, perinatal, and women’s mental health. Currently, she maintains her private practice in lower Manhattan. She uses a variety of modalities including attachment focused, psychodynamic, relational, cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and mindfulness techniques.
While working in her full time practice, Lindsay is also a candidate in the Licensure Qualifying Program in Interpersonal Psychoanalysis at Manhattan Institute of Psychoanalysis. She has previously been trained in the Attachment Biobehavioral Catch-Up Intervention, and the Keys to Interactive Parenting Scale. Lindsay is a bilingual therapist, serving both Spanish and English speaking clientele.
