Lindsay Bong, M.A.

Professional Counselor Intern

I’m passionate about my clients learning how to see themselves through a lens of self compassion and love. Using a strengths based perspective, my goal is to help clients understand and celebrate who they are and employ those strengths in their present circumstances.

My Approach

For clients experiencing anxiety and depression, my goal is to help uncover areas of strength and employ those strengths to improve quality of life and relationships. Looking for patterns in our thoughts, behavior and our relationships gives us information on what works for us and what doesn’t. Practicing self compassion as we look through these sometimes painful past and current experiences leads to healing and confidence. Achieving a healthy self esteem is foundational in having the kind of relationships we are all craving. Mindfulness is a tool I employ often to help clients make connections with their thoughts and their behaviors and the world around them. I believe that we all are worthy of healing and enjoying healthy relationships!

My Background

I received a BA in Psychology at the University of Tulsa in 2002, followed by a Masters in Counseling from Dallas Theological Seminary in 2008. I am currently a registered intern with the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists. Outside of my work, you can find me reading at least three books at the same time, making art and playing with my family and friends. As I encourage my clients to live wholeheartedly, I engage with what I believe in and am always learning more and practicing the arts of self compassion and growth.
