As a graduate student, Lindley trained with UNC’s Child and Adolescent Outpatient Program which established her foundation and knowledge in psychodynamic and attachment theories and the importance of the therapeutic relationship. Lindley utilizes a trauma-informed, neurodiversity informed, and gender affirming approach to care. She is skilled in several modalities of treatment including dialectical behavior therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based stress reduction, and internal family systems therapy. Lindley’s approach is person-centered and customized to each individual she supports. As a registered yoga teacher, Lindley believes in the importance of the mind-body connection and body centered therapies. She draws heavily from Polyvagal theory, Somatic Experiencing, the Hakomi Method, and relationship with nature as a resource for healing. Lindley seeks to provide her patients with an atmosphere of warmth, trust, and safety as well as a space to be truly witnessed and held in their experiences. Lindley honors the strengths she sees in her patients and works to highlight their resilience while also facilitating deeper self-inquiry. Lindley collaborates with her patients to develop increased awareness, self-compassion, and acceptance and work towards taking action steps towards new ways of being that are more closely aligned with their values.
