Lindsay’s interest in the brain and mind/body connection was sparked when practicing as a Licensed Massage Therapist. While working with clients on their physical issues, the inseparable link between the mind and body became evident. After practicing therapeutic massage for over a decade, Lindsay decided she wanted to help people in a different way and work with the mind side of the equation.
She had her Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Illinois where she also studied creative writing. She went back to school to get a Master’s of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health from Oregon State University (OSU). While earning her degree, she attended an IPNB workshop with Bonnie Badenoch, a leader in the field of IPNB. This workshop changed the trajectory of her education and her worldview. She enrolled in the IPNB certificate program at Portland State University and completed it in 2014, when she also graduated from OSU.
Lindsay is currently in private practice offering counseling and neurofeedback. She works with people of all ages who want help navigating anxiety, attention problems, life transitions and recovery from Traumatic Brain Injury.
Lindsay is honored to be on the GAINS board, because she believes that IPNB will bring more kindness, connection, and empathy to the world.
She lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband, her trained therapy dog, PJ, and their bossy kitty, Charlotte.
