Hello. My name is Lindsay Salem, Ph.D. (she/her). I’m a Licensed Psychologist in private practice with over twenty years of experience. I work with individuals, couples, and families at my office in Lincoln, Nebraska as well as online via telehealth throughout the state of Nebraska. I work with adolescents and adults and my practice is inclusive and affirming. I have specialties in eating disorders and mood disorders as well as a general practice. I completed my Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from the University of Notre Dame. As part of my graduate degree, I was a pre-doctoral intern at Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL).
I believe strongly in the values of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in my clinical work and my personal life. From my training in graduate school to the types of continuing education classes I take, I am always working on these areas of my practice and mindset. Most recently I completed APA-approved CEU trainings in Transgender Psychological Evaluations and Gender Affirming Care, Centering Trans and Nonbinary People in Eating Disorders Treatment: Essentials in Gender Affirming Care, Critical Race Theory as a Necessary Lens for Clinical Practice, Teaching Disability as Part of Diversity, Radical, Unapologetic, Joyful, Epic Fat Embodiment, and Cutting Edge Issues in Gender Affirmative Care.
Throughout my education, training, and clinical work, I have maintained the values of social justice and advocacy. As a white, cis, het, middle class woman with a Ph.D., I am aware of my privilege and work to center my clients and their experiences, values, and needs. It is not my clients’ jobs to teach me and I am humbled at the times that they do. It’s an ongoing process, but one I value greatly. In addition to individual and relationship counseling, I also provide letters for gender affirming care for existing clients as well as referrals for clients to LGBTQ+ providers and resources.
I’m a member of the American Psychological Association (APA). I have greatly valued APA’s advocacy, especially in recent years, for inclusion and equity for marginalized groups. I advocate for LGBTQ+ rights within my state in multiple ways, including submitting testimony against a transgender youth gender affirming care ban and a ban on trans youth in sports. I care deeply about LGBTQ+ issues as I have both friends and family in this wonderful community.
