About Lindsay

I received my PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) in 2011. I studied with Steven Hayes, PhD, who developed a therapeutic approach that combines behavioral science and mindfulness practices, called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). In addition, I received diverse training in both behavioral and psychodynamic models that emphasize the importance of the therapeutic relationship to creating positive change.

I regularly practice mindfulness and attend silent meditation retreats, and I greatly enjoy this intersection between personal and professional growth. I have specialized training in treating a range of issues, including relationship challenges, sleep problems, weight issues, chronic pain, grief, depression, anxiety, phobias, trauma and wealth issues.

I completed my internship at the Veterans Administration (VA) in Martinez, California and post-doctoral training at Counseling Services at UNR. I have served on the board of the Incline Village Community Hospital Foundation since 2017.

I was a board member and board chair at Tahoe’s Connection for Families from 2014-2017.
