ABOUT ME

Hello. My name is Lindsay Ferlin and I am a licensed psychotherapist. I have been practicing psychotherapy for 9 years in both community mental health settings as well as private practice settings. I hold a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology and a master’s degree in clinical psychology. All of my major coursework in both academic settings was framed by a socio-cultural curiosity and included feminist and social justice perspectives.

After graduate school I completed the two-year depth orientated Post Graduate Training Program at The Psychotherapy Institute in Berkeley which allowed me to train under the supervision of some amazingly talented established clinicians.

I have also trained at the McAuley Institute at St. Mary’s Medical Center, Haight Ashbury Psychological Services, and Walden House. While I am no longer in training, I am committed to staying current in my field by attending regular lectures, seminars and consultations. In addition to my continued membership at The Psychotherapy Institute (TPI), I am a community member of The Psychoanalytic Institute of Northern California (PINC), The Northern California Association for Psychoanalytic Psychology (NCSPP), The LGBTQQ Psychotherapy Association (GAYLESTA), The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), The World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) and The California Association of Marriage and Family Therapists (CAMFT).

In addition to explorations of the mind, I am also interested in queer & feminist theory, mind/body connections, holistic health and nutrition, food/mood connections and health at every size.
