Hi, my name is Lindsey and I have very extensive experience in working with addiction and trauma. My modalities include an overall trauma informed/harm-reduction orientation with a focus on the mind-body connection. I have been a fully licensed psychotherapist since 2006 and have a background in working with individual's, couples, and families in the arena of private practice, community based treatment, detox, and residential treatment. Seeing the deficits in the mental health and substance abuse system led me to find alternative integral approaches and therapies that truly heal, rather than simply diagnose and treat symptoms, which is the idea that Root Recovery was founded upon. It is my passion and calling to create and bring effective alternative healing methods to individual's struggling with addiction and/or mental health issues.
In addition to my long standing licensure, I hold a certificate from the California Institute of Integral Studies in Psychedelic Assisted Therapy and Research. I also work as a ketamine psychotherapist at a local psychiatric clinic and am working to bring MDMA assisted psychotherapy for PTSD to Texas pending FDA approval of the MAPS expanded access protocol, which is expected to be approved by late 2019. I also hold a certification as a ketamine assisted psychotherapist. This treatment is available as an add-on to aftercare for those wanting to dive deep into the root issues underlying their addiction and/or for those who have underlying depression or other mental health issues.
I am also a certified SMART Recovery facilitator and a KRI certified Kundalini Yoga instructor. This type of yoga is an ideal support in the recovery process due to its emphasis on daily commitment to practice (even if for as little as 3 minutes), as well as its holistic approach to living. There are many gifts embedded in this wonderful tradition and it's my passion to share them with others on their recovery path.
