Lindsey White, Founder, M.Ed., LPC, CPTR, EMDR, KAP

Lindsey possesses 18 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 ibogaine 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 a certified ketamine assisted psychotherapist (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 our recovery community residents as a complimentary alternative healing modailty.

Root recovery has played a huge part in my life and my recovery. I would not be doing so well in my recovery if it wasn’t for Lindsey and Ray. Their combined knowledge on recovery and therapy makes them an amazing team.
