About

Hi, I'm Lindsay

I’m a nationally certified counselor and a licensed professional mental health counselor. Because of how long I have been practicing, I practice as an Intern with the State of Oregon, and receive supervision from Elizabeth Trautwein, LPC.

I earned my masters in mental health counseling with a specialization in addictions from Lewis and Clark College and I have my B.A. in psychology from Butler University (Go Dawgs!). I am also a 200hr Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance.

I truly believe in the healing power of the therapeutic relationship and my hope is to make therapy a more accessible, less stigmatized practice in everyday life.

In my practice, I help support finding more authenticity in who you are, integrating the different parts of yourself to be able to live in congruence without being trapped by self-criticism, anxiety, doubt, sadness, and overwhelm. Through holistic and integrative practices such as, Rogerian, Internal Family Systems, Jungian, Mindfulness, Motivational Interviewing, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy, I will help you create more compassion for yourself, more capacity to feel the hard stuff, and strategies to manage the stressors of our history, environment, and daily life.

Integrating these theoretical perspectives allows for exploration of your inner world, better understanding of Self and helps you to develop a richer story of your life. Using creative modalities such as imagery, metaphors, journaling, and dream work are powerful healing tools that encourages the integration of body, mind, and soul. Together we will utilize effective strategies that will help you develop the capacity to release old wounds and gain health and wellness.

I fully believe that being seen, heard, and witnessed nonjudgmentally by another human is one of the most healing experiences we can have. Being that witness for others is a gift that I am grateful for every day.

Aside from being a therapist…

I am also an avid hiker, a hobby photographer, a cat mom, a runner, an ice cream lover, a yogi, a believer in small acts of kindness, and a lifelong learner.
