Miranda Malone, LMSW
Anxiety Therapist & Maternal Mental Health Specialist
Miranda hails from the marvelous Midwest, Wisconsin to be specific. Miranda became a New Yorker in 2017 and has since fallen in love with the borough of Queens with its lush greenery
and big city amenities. In her free time, Miranda can be found hopping around Manhattan and Brooklyn discovering new spots for food and drink or walking her fur babies in and around
Miranda was raised in Green Bay, WI (Go Pack Go!) where she completed her bachelors in social work from the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. Miranda then headed south to
Milwaukee, WI where she completed her masters in social work, substance abuse counseling,and trauma informed care certification from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Miranda offers a unique perspective to the NYC culture as she grew up in the ‘Midwest Mindset’; take it easy and what will be will be.
She has spent the last three years working with people to heal themselves and create meaningful lives through therapy.
She carries a deep passion for early life trauma and how that affects one’s ability to form and cultivate long lasting relationships. Miranda is passionate about helping individuals understand and challenge their own limiting beliefs to develop a more meaningful and authentic relationship with themselves. She believes that each person that seeks treatment presents with their unique life circumstances that leads to their current struggles; your story is important and it matters.
She has specialized training in maternal mental health. This is an area that is often not focused on enough in therapy specialties. She has training in pregnancy, postpartum depression, anxiety, infertility, loss, and parenting support for new moms. Additionally, Miranda has sought certification and training in trauma therapy, Brainspotting, and anxiety.
Miranda aims to continue to grow as a professional and strengthen her practice in order to help New Yorkers see their world through the lens of a Midwesterner; life does not have to be as hard as we make it.

Lindsey Huttner, LCSW
Anxiety Therapist, Owner
Although not a Queens native, she has fallen in love with this big beautiful borough full of green parks, delicious foods, and sandy beaches. On weekends Lindsey can be found jogging with her dogs on the trails of Forest Park or grabbing a bite to eat in Jackson Heights.
She grew up in the Hudson Valley and moved to Westchester for college and eventually to NYC for graduate school, earning her Masters of Social Work from Fordham University.
She spent four years providing intensive family therapy to those in crisis. With a deep passion for helping people through traumatic events, she sought to continue education at Adelphi University. Although it was a long drive to Long Island after work, it was well worth it when she earned her certificate of advanced trauma studies, giving her the specific training she needed to help people heal from traumatizing events. This path led to her employment with the Department of Veteran Affairs in Northport, Long Island. She spent several years working with veterans in the mental health clinic. She served as a team lead for behavioral therapy at the clinic, supervised master level interns training to become clinicians, and became a certified provider nationally by the VA in treatments for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and couples therapy. Eventually, she was promoted to manage the women’s health program at another VA medical center.
She received training in new treatments that alleviate anxiety and depression, treating a large number of people suffering with these symptoms. Treating anxiety is a huge passion of hers since it something that touches everyone at some point in their lives.
For the last four years she has been growing and expanding her own practice which is at the heart of her career, putting her on the map as a leading anxiety therapist in Queens, NY. It is the culmination of her years of experience and training that allowed her to bring her unique style of healing to her clients, like you, here in Queens. Finding her business’ home in Forest Hills has been a natural fit from day one. Having the freedom to work with everyday people that are all just struggling to navigate life, like we all are, has been her most exciting journey yet.
