Hi, I’m Lindsay! I support individuals & couples with disordered eating, complex trauma, & neurodivergence.
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in Portland, OR
Supervised by April Waggoner, PhD, LMFT, LMHC, LPC & Sarah Ellenwood, LPC, LMFT
It may feel like the eating disorder is taking over your life. Maybe you’re stuck in shame and patterns you know aren’t serving you. You want to reclaim your life and work through the underlying issues that impact your relationship to food & body. I approach issues around food & body from a trauma-informed, intersectional, and HAES (Health at Every Size) lens. I'm passionate about helping you reconnect with joy around food & cooking, finding neutrality & joy in your body.
Burnout can lead you to feel like you’re constantly treading water. You’re trying so hard, yet continue to feel stuck & exhausted. I’m here to help you find relief from burnout & build strategies to support yourself from getting stuck there in the future.
As a neurodivergent clinician, I’m particularly passionate about supporting other neurodivergent folks. ADHD therapy is all about balancing self-acceptance and self-understanding with finding ways to cope with living in a neurotypical society. I want to help you embrace your most authentic self (unmask) & also set up systems in your life that help you get through the day to day requirements of living in this society.
My work is informed by Internal Family Systems. This means that I'll help you with exploring the different parts of yourself & how they all work together to both serve you and potentially keep you from your overall goals. I aim to help you have compassion and understanding towards the parts of yourself, while building up your ability to live from your most authentic Self.
I love Narrative Therapy because it can help you to explore the stories you have about yourself, others, relationships, food, your body, etc. I will support you in exploring where these stories come from and if they really serve you. Sometimes the stories we've internalized come from unhelpful family messaging and societal oppression. When you can deconstruct those stories, you get to have the power to decide what is right for you & live from that place of empowerment.
