As The MIND Performance Coach, I’m here to help you get to your greatest self by learning to take care of your mind first. Through my signature MIND Fundamental Formula, I’ll show you how to establish the daily fundamentals you need (Movement, Intention, Nourishment, Deep Connections, Fresh Air, Unplugging, Learning) to optimize you mental health and become your greatest self.

I’m Lindsey Paoli and I hack minds for a living.



When I was first diagnosed with anxiety and depression at the age of 18, I ignored it. Mental health wasn’t something that was discussed in my family in any positive way and I ridiculed the idea of therapy. Instead of addressing my mental health, I poured all my energy into being a high achiever. And it worked... for a while.


Mental Health Education Is Non-Negotiable

I studied Hospitality Management at University of Nevada, Las Vegas (GO Rebels!) and built a thriving career in operations management for properties like The Mirage, Wynn and Encore, and the Cosmopolitan. Despite my steady climb to success, I struggled to enjoy what I’d accomplished.  I had done everything I thought I was supposed to do — get a degree, get married, buy a house all before thirty! But everything I was building was based on achieving to keeping up appearances as a desperate attempt to hide the personal turmoil I was experiencing when I'd go ho home.  When I left work I had to face that I was in a destructive relationship, had isolated myself from others, and my health was deteriorating.  
When I decided to address my mental health for the first time, it was earth-shaking. I realized the common denominator in everything that wasn’t working in my life was ME, due in large part to a lack of education or awareness of how I could have better been taking care of myself mentally. As I dove head first into my personal work, I realized helping others like me was my calling, and earned my Master’s degree in Marriage & Family Therapy. I opened my first private practice where I specialized in helping high achieving leaders make better sense of their personal and professional lives. 

I loved the work, but as rates of anxiety and depression skyrocketed during the pandemic, I saw that  our mental health system was not built to accomodate the new level of need.  I focused my sights on helping companies to make bigger and faster changes. I knew the importance of helping companies better understand and implement small positive mental health changes in their organizations: it would also be shifting one of the largest social structures that reinforce habits that can lead to mental deterioration and burnout. 
As The MIND Performance Coach, I’m on a mission to disrupt our current mental health habits with education, approachability, and accessibility because I've seen personally how impactful and necessary this work is.  Mental Health education should be available to everyone, not just mental health professionals and certainly before one is in a crisis situation. By making mental health our greatest asset rather than a secret dirty word, I believe we can create stronger relationships, more compassionate leaders, and happier humans across all socioeconomic backgrounds and worldviews. 

“This was my first time seeking outside assistance in the processing of my thoughts and feelings and Lindsey was quickly someone I was comfortable being vulnerable with. Processing old trauma was helpful to me getting more comfortable inside my own head.”

-Ramsey White, Gym Director & Combat Night Producer

Gottman's Couples Therapy

Integrative Medicine and Nutrition for Mental Health

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma treatment


I’m not here to diagnose you or be your therapist: I’m here to coach you through getting your mind right so your health, relationships, and business can thrive. You are in charge of the way your brain works, and you alone have the power to make radical shifts that will transform you into the kind of leader you’ve always wanted to be.
