Lindsay holds a Bachelors Degree in Social Sciences with an emphasis on psychology and sociology from Washington State University and a certificate from Bellevue College in the Alcohol and Drug Addiction Counseling program.  She believes treatment should be based on scientifically based methods that assist her in teaching people effective ways to change while clarifying goals for recovery. Lindsay is a registered yoga instructor who leads our Yoga Therapy group. She believes that integrating yoga into treatment can allow people to heal from substance use disorders in a unique way. Introducing a yoga practice allows people to connect with their thoughts, feelings and physical sensations in a way many people have not before. This space can allow people to engage with themselves and others, and evaluate their automatic patterns of behavior in a different way, to help reduce relapse and substance use disorder related behaviors.
