Lindsey Harcus, Psy.D.
My name is Lindsey Harcus and I am a clinical psychologist in the Denver metro area. I attended an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited program at the University of Denver’s Graduate School of Professional Psychology where I earned Masters and Doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology. I completed my pre-doctoral internship at the Mental Health Center of Denver and my post-doctoral fellowship at the Aurora Mental Health Center. In addition to community mental health, I also have experience working in other non-profit and college counseling settings.
I absolutely love what I do and my practice is a product of that passion. I work with people across the lifespan, with a focus on adolescents and young adults. In my career, I have had experience working together with people struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss as well as those who may be experiencing a life transition or struggling with issues of identity. I also specialize in working with people who use non-suicidal self-injury, such as cutting, as a means of coping. For more information and additional resources for self-injury, check out my other website, www.selfinjurydenver.com.
I aim to focus on the whole person rather than just a “problem” that needs to be fixed. Life is full of complex challenges and stressors, including building strong relationships and intimacy, finding or changing a career path, developing a positive sense of self, and working toward educational/occupational goals and changes. Having a space to build understanding and new strategies to manage life change and stress can help to enhance inner strengths and help you on your path to living a connected and meaningful life.
My approach is strength-based, collaborative and relational. I integrate different treatment methods, with the belief that one model does not fit each person. And why would it? We are all unique. I use psychodynamic, humanistic, mindfulness-based and behavioral approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.
