Are You Ready to Get Unstuck?

A trusting relationship can often be the first step toward healing.

Within my practice, Therapy dog, Bodhi and I use holistic, mind-body approaches including clinical hypnotherapy to alleviate the effects of trauma.

Trauma comes in all shapes and sizes, whether it’s the Big-T trauma like an automobile accident or sexual assault; or the smaller-t traumas of childhood like neglect or disapproval. Smaller t-traumas often present with recurring feelings of shame, guilt, self-loathing, anxiety or depression without a clear cause.

Not only is clinical hypnotherapy used to process traumatic memories, it is also used to unlock persistent, unconscious self-limiting patterns and beliefs.

I use a blend of techniques including strength based counseling techniques, pet therapy, trauma resolution therapy, guided imagery, meditations, inner child work, past life regression, mindfulness, and energy work.

I am also the founder of I Am A Rockstar, an online resource for survivors of sexual trauma and relationship abuse. I am passionate and determined to help survivors to recognize that they are stronger, more resilient, and more beautiful because they have survived their extraordinary circumstances.

“With Lindy’s gentle guidance, I have realized that those memories that had so much power over my life- can’t hurt me, don’t control me, and can’t stop me from moving on with my life. Those bad memories have faded, and a more confident me has formed.  People see a change in me and I feel a change in myself.  She helped me move forward to a happier and brighter me. I just want to thank Lindy for all she has done for me.”

“Throughout my journey of recovery, Lindy was one of the only people I have felt truly understood me. I had always felt that I couldn’t explain the crazy tape that was playing in my head until I met her. My favorite quality of Lindy is that I could tell that she genuinely cares about my well-being. She got in between me and my bad thoughts, pointed me the direction of reality and enabled me to start seeing the bigger picture. Lindy’s guidance was a crucial part in helping me become a person who doesn’t live their life in fear anymore. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.”

“Lindy is a truly special human being. Her intuition and expertise allows her to adapt to any situation, and she radiates a unique energy that creates a beautiful atmosphere for profound healing. I am forever thankful to her. She has helped me move past my childhood sexual trauma, reclaim my confidence, and has given me the tools and courage to pursue my dreams.”

“One of the things that I loved most about my work with Lindy was the inner child work we did together, it gave me a better understanding of who I am and gave myself a better understanding of what I’ve survived in my life. It gave me a greater awareness of my own ability to shift my perceptions around men and helped me to recognize that I don’t want those types of men in my life anymore. I now know that I am worthy of more in my life and relationships. The last few months with you was more transformational than the work that I’ve done with any other therapist- ever. And while life isn’t perfect, I know that i can sit through the raw feelings of uncomfortableness and pain and not use drugs and be okay. Thank you so much for everything.”
