Client Success Stories

From Teens

Lindsay Durgan, MFT - Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA

” … my mental health is quite possibly in the best place it’s been in a long time, if not ever. In fact, I got off my medication after more than two years a few weeks ago and have yet to notice any symptoms of anxiety or panic. This miraculous recovery from where I was in 2019 is, of course, almost wholly thanks to you. There is so much to be grateful for this year, and I am especially grateful that I had you supporting and – for want of a better term – ‘fixing’ me during my journey to get here. I’m sure I’m not the only one who has benefitted so much from your work. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much.”

“If you are wondering if Lindsay would be a great counselor or therapist, I want you to know that she is. I was a [high school] senior when I was seeing her, dealing with the stresses of academics, college, home life, and issues with being gay. Looking back from now, I do not know how I handled that. But I was lucky to have Lindsay there … Overall, dealing with loneliness as an openly gay student at an all-male school and home problems, the conversations I had with her were very warming. It was so easy to open up to her and actually talk. I believe if it wasn’t for Lindsay, I do not know where I would be today. I just want to thank her so much for all that she has done.”

From Parents

“Our daughter started working with Lindsay after being bullied at school, which had a deeply negative impact on her. At the time, Lindsay had a full schedule, but … made the extraordinary effort to accommodate us outside of her normal hours to help our little girl. This showed us not only the dedication she has to her profession, but the compassion she has for people and those she works with … Lindsay consistently goes above and beyond [and her] all-around care and support separates Lindsay and makes it clear to us how much she genuinely puts her heart into helping our children, finding ways so that they can grow into their best versions of themselves. With this said, we highly recommend Lindsay to any person searching for a child therapist.”

“Lindsay has had a life-changing positive impact on our family. She was able to reach each of our children and gain their trust, despite their being such very different personalities and struggling with very different issues. We saw huge positive development in their confidence and enjoyment of life. They actually looked forward to each session. She also did a great job of liaising with us as parents … It has been a tremendous success and we are deeply grateful.”

From Individual Adults

“Lindsay has provided the care and guidance I needed to resolve deeply rooted depression that was preventing me from living a happy and enjoyable life … it is now a joy to wake up every morning looking forward to the challenges of the day with a smile instead of a fearful (anxious, ambivalent, angry) frown on my face. Her awareness, caring and thoughtful guidance through this part of my life’s journey has quite frankly saved me.”

Male client – CEO in San Francisco, CA

“I started working with Lindsay shortly after my wife was diagnosed with a recurrence of breast cancer several years ago. Between supporting my wife through treatment, grappling with my own fears and grief, and continuing to work full-time, I was in desperate need of help. Lindsay helped me navigate and survive the hardest period of my life … Thanks to Lindsay’s consistent support and guidance, I now better understand my own emotional strengths and barriers. With her help, I came to peace with events from my past, I learned healthier coping mechanisms, and I developed a compassionate and empowered perception of myself. Big and exciting changes are on the horizon for me, and I am so thankful for the huge role Lindsay played in helping me get to this point.”

From Other Professionals

“As a child and adolescent psychiatrist, I have been fortunate to collaborate with therapist Lindsay Durgan in the treatment of adolescents with mental health issues. She is a thoughtful and compassionate therapist who is extremely dedicated to the wellbeing of her clients.”

Michelle Guchereau – Child, Adolescent and Adult Psychiatrist

“As a psychiatrist in San Francisco, I really enjoy collaborating with Lindsay on patient care. My patients love seeing her and clearly grow through their work with Lindsay. When I refer patients to her for individual or couples therapy, I can trust that they will be well looked after. She is a sharp and experienced clinician who brings compassion and caring to her work.”

Andrew Middleditch – Psychiatrist in Private Practice

“My impression when we met was skepticism. I didn’t like many of the psych individuals I met in my career. As we talked, I saw in you the healing qualities I found in the very few physicians I had been impressed and guided by.”
