Hi there!

I'm Lindsey Saltzman, LSCW, the founder and practitioner behind Equinox Counseling & Consulting, LLC. I have worked in the field since 2013 and am excited to offer individual telehealth services through my own private practice in Indiana and Kentucky!

I have worked with many different populations, from individuals in crisis, to first responders, to survivors of homicide/suicide. My true passion and specialty is working with first responders and survivors of intimate partner violence. 

My Approach

I accept my clients where they are while also pushing them to realize the barriers preventing them from achieving the life they desire. I am not afraid to call my clients out or challenge them when their actions or thoughts are counter-productive to their goals. My hope is to help my clients find better balance & healthier relationships throughout their life.

My Story

I am a thin blue line supporting, dispatch loving, EMS appreciating, fire fighter advocating therapist, who pushes for more support for first responders in my community. There is a lack of adequate mental health care for those who give so much and my goal is to promote a shift in this system.  

 

I earned my Master of Social Work degree from the University of Southern Indiana in 2013 and am licensed in the state of Indiana (License # 34007677A) and Kentucky (License # 259038). I was an embedded clinician within a law enforcement agency and on a mobile crisis response team for 5 years in Charleston, South Carolina, both of which included daily interaction with first responders on mental health crisis & negotiation scenes. I also provided therapy services to victims of various crimes including domestic violence, sexual assault, & homicide/suicide survivors. 

I am trained in various evidence based practices including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), & Grief Therapy. I also have specialty training in suicide prevention, first responder mental health, & victim services. I am certified in individual & group intervention (CISM) by the ICSIF & in 2019 became a Certified Clinical Supervisor in the state of South Carolina. I was also awarded the Mount Pleasant Police Department Community Service Award in 2021 & named their Civilian of the Quarter for quarter 3 of 2021. I regularly attend conferences/trainings focusing on first responder mental health and trauma treatment.

I grew up and currently reside in Southwestern Indiana with my family. I am a LEO wife, "boy mom", and animal lover. I enjoy spending time outdoors, playing with my husky Malakai (aka my forever "Employee of the Month"), & learning about astronomy - hence the name of my practice!
