Lindsay Hansen, LMFT
I completed my Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies from California State University, Chico in 2010. I went on to receive my Masters of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA.
I have worked in various community mental health agencies; working with children, teens and adults. I work with individuals, couples and families.
I have additional training in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, along with Gottman Couples Therapy. In 2020 I completed the training required to become a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider. I am also in the process of completing my Heart Math Institute Clinical Certification. I am a volunteer mental health provider with the Returning Veterans Project.
I enjoy incorporating narrative, somatic and nutrition exercises into therapy to address holistic health goals. I strongly believe in addressing childhood/early adulthood relational trauma experiences in efforts to help develop healthy boundaries and satisfying relationships going forward in your life paths. I have worked with LGBTQIA+ communities and believe in equality and accepting all people. Additionally I frequently encourage my clients to incorporate any belief systems they find strength in.
Why Behind the Mask?
Masks. Right now we have all heard plenty about masks. I got inspired to begin this practice while sitting outside and seeing people walking around in their cloth masks and I wondered who was behind that mask. Not just the face, but the person. During my career I have always spoken with my clients about living their truth and not hiding behind the story they have built. It is my honor to help you learn to live boldly and authentically without a mask.
