Therapeutic Approaches. Personal Interests. Values in Action.
Lindsey utilizes an eclectic, holistic therapy approach combining relational, humanistic, and trauma-informed frameworks. She knits these elements together with humor and humility to encourage clients towards exploration, collaboration, healing and integration.
Lindsey combines frameworks and skill-building from the following empirically-supported practices:
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Family Systems Theory
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR)
Gottman Method Therapy
Internal Family Systems
Lindsey enjoys reading fiction books, playing table top card and board games (the nerdier, the better!), musical theatre, and listening to music, and generally laughing and spending time with friends and family. She also loves camping and hiking, and engaging in such contemplative practices as meditation, journaling, walking and running. She is wholly comfortable being labeled as a "Cat-Lady" by her loved ones.
Music and art are also vitally important aspects of Lindsey's life, and she enjoys bringing the expressive arts into session whenever possible and appropriate.
Values in Action
Lindsey's experience working with a rich and diverse tapestry of the human story has further solidified her belief in the inherent worth of each and every person. For Lindsey, this has cultivated a deep reverence, and personal commitment to racial, social and reproductive justice, and working from an anti-racist perspective.
Lindsey has volunteered her time and service with local non-profit organizations that share her vision. Her volunteer work has included working with babies and children at an emergency shelter, facilitating peer support groups, volunteer coordination, and serving on the Board of Directors for a local non-profit in Washington state that offered support to families experiencing emotional challenges following birth. Additionally, Lindsey enjoys volunteering her time to teach Art Masterpiece classes at her kiddo's school.
