Under Clinical Supervision

Lindsay Cray, Mental Health Counselor - Limited Permit, P120164 is practicing under the supervision of Mhegan Fox (New York, Licensed Psychologist, 022822) at Mhegan L Fox PsyD PLLC.

Please, note: A clinician listed as being “clinically supervised” is completing clinical hours toward their licensure. They have one or more fully licensed clinical supervisors that often have special training to become supervisors. They consult with their supervisor(s) on all of their cases, which means that, when working with them, you are getting the time and expertise of multiple therapists in your treatment.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

For more than twenty years, I have focused my career on the development and delivery of progressive and intentional nature-based practices that help people broaden their personal growth, enhance relationships, change the culture of health and foster a connection between self and other. After pioneering a highly effective Nature-Based Clinical therapy model for supporting trauma recovery, I created Trybe Ecotherapy in 2020. A counseling practice that focused on healing military veterans through the balance of cognitive, emotional, and physiological states. My early professional years were spent in social-ecological sciences, via a fellowship from the National Science Foundation. During this time, I joined multiple efforts towards ecological sustainability, including attending the United Nations Conference on Climate Change in 2009. In 2010, I discovered the power of connecting young people directly to nature and the serious implications for creating successful learning pathways for youth in alternative education programs. In this work I traveled for nearly a decade, nationally and internationally, focusing on underserved populations, juveniles in the justice system. In 2013, I founded the Earthworks Institute for expeditionary learning, a nonprofit to serve those who lacked exposure to healthy outdoor opportunities. As a consultant and as a mental health counselor, I apply my experience to assist individuals, professionals and organizations alike in engaging the Power of Nature to Support Emotional Health and Wellness. Whether it be through psychotherapy work (supervised under the practice of Meghan L. Fox PsyD.), consulting, or as a field guide, my work has reached a diversity of people across cultures, races and income-levels.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I am a big outdoors enthusiast, spend much of my free time enjoying natural spaces via hiking, camping, kayaking, snowshoeing, wilderness skills classes and even a prior career as a forest school educator. As such, I am also a huge proponent of nature-based practices as a part of treatment in my therapeutic approach with clients. The results and feedback from clients who choose to integrate Nature-Based Therapy in thier sessions with me are resoundingly positive and show extremely successful outcomes. If this sounds interesting to you, feel free to email me to book an outdoor walking appointment in one of the areas beautiful local parks!

Education

Saint John Fisher University, Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, 2022

My primary focus over the course of my education was treating stress and trauma (specifically PTSD in veteran populations) using evidence-based approaches to mental health, synthesized though the therapeutic potential of the natural world. Nature-Based Therapy (NBT) is a widely accepted, clinical model for treating of stress-related psychological issues is such as anxiety, depression and trauma. Using both dialectical and cognitive behavioral therapies in combination with a foundation of mindfulness, I developed a unique approach to healing trauma-related symptoms by teaching my clients advanced skills of awareness and non-judgement as a critical component to treatment.

SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, Master of Professional Studies, Environmental Management and Risk Assessment, 2010

Studying environmental conservation in relationship to human behavior.

Work History

I embrace over twenty years of outdoor expertise and traditional ecological knowledge combined with counseling acumen, to re-envision personal and professional approaches to mental health via nature connection. As a mental health counselor specialized in Nature-Based Therapy (NBT), with a strong foundation in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Schema work, I am uniquely experienced in serving veterans in clinical care. I have also enjoyed working with a diversity of clients with various needs. Through this, I have leveraged my proven track record of weaving together evidence-based modalities of traditional and holistic mental health care and stress recovery to empower all clients in their healing journey.
