Lindsey possesses 17 years of therapeutic experience in working with addiction and trauma. Her modalities include an overall trauma informed/harm-reduction orientation with a focus on the mind-body connection that is rooted in a shamanic worldview and spiritual practice. She has been fully trained in EMDR since 2005, which she has adapted as an integration tool for those who have recently undergone a peak experience.
After undergoing a two week psycho-spiritual plant medicine journey at a clinic in Mexico in 2011, her eyes were opened to the deficits in the mental health and substance abuse system, which inspired her to create an alternative approach to addiction recovery that truly heals, rather than simply diagnoses and treats symptoms. This is how Root Recovery came to be.
In addition to her graduate degree and licensure in Counseling Psychology, Lindsey holds a certificate from the California Institute of Integral Studies in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy and Research. She is also working on her doctorate in Integral and Transpersonal Psychology from the same institute. She is trained in and practices ketamine assisted psychotherapy (KAP) at a local psychiatric clinic (she trained under Phil Wolfson, MD, editor of the Ketamine Papers).
Lindsey is also a 200-hour KRI certified Kundalini Yoga instructor, as well as a trained kambó practitioner. Kambó is available to those in aftercare as a complimentary alternative healing therapy (given that the recipient passes a screening to determine if they are a candidate for this powerful cleanse).
