Meet Our Therapists

Rev. Lindsay Geist


Founder | Director | Therapist

Lindsay is uniquely trained, having earned a Masters in Divinity from Duke Divinity School and a Masters in Social Work from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is credentialed as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in both Georgia and North Carolina and offers in-person and video counseling. Lindsay is also ordained as a Deacon in Full Connection in the North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church.

Lindsay has always been drawn to the intersection of mental health and faith, exploring this through various roles over the years. She began her career assessing individuals in crisis and leading spirituality and forgiveness groups at an inpatient mental health and substance abuse detoxification center in North Carolina. Lindsay later served at Atlanta Mission as a crisis intervention social worker helping women get connected with mental health, substance abuse, and domestic violence emergency resources. Lindsay opened her own private practice, Seeds of Hope Counseling, in 2016, which continues to serve individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, and faith concerns. In addition to her counseling work, Lindsay has served as a consultant, partnering with churches and non-profit organizations to lead trainings on mental health, navigating church crises, addressing anxiety, and soul care. She has facilitated church staff and women’s retreats, led continuing education training for clergy, served as a guest speaker for church youth parents on multi-week mental health series, and guest preached at various churches around the topic of mental health and faith. Lindsay currently co-hosts a podcast, “Not Alone: Conversations on Faith and Mental Health” with two ministry colleagues.
