About Me

I am a writer…I am a mother to one on earth and one only in my heart…I am a madly in love wife, a proud dog mommy, an amateur photographer, a lifelong procrastinator………............. oh sorry, I am a lover of life and new experiences, an idealist coming to terms with reality, a devoted daughter, a secret gnome addict, a want-to-be meditator, a lucky older sister, a life-long student of the everyday existence, and mostly a wondering soul looking for direction and trying to understand this beautiful, but shattering, thing called life.  

My name is Lindsey.  I am a 30 ish year-old “babylost” mom to my first child, my sweet daughter, Nora and a mom to Zoe my daughter her on earth. I am a wife to my best-friend, lover, and husband, Nicholas.  As I mentioned I am also a proud dog mommy to my “little man” George, a carrot eating shih tzu.  In my day job I am a Clinical Social Worker and Mental Health Therapist specializing in providing individual, group, and family therapy to adolescents struggling with past trauma and abuse, parents trying to understand their children’s mental illness, and adult women who fight with addiction and mental health issues.
