Hello! My name is Lemecia Lindsey (she/her) and I am glad that you are here.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Certified EMDR therapist, EMDR Consultant and LENS Neurofeedback provider. I am the owner of Vancouver EMDR Therapy in Vancouver Washington. For more than 20 years, I have been helping people recover from traumatic life events, heal from past wounds and develop improved relationships with those that they love and a greater loving connection to themselves.
I help people who are struggling, not feeling good, who carry the weight of the world on their shoulders and are not living the lives that they would like to live. I help them to feel safe again, sleep without nightmares and feel more at ease. I support them so that they can feel like themselves again or get in touch with themselves in a new way. Every day in my office I see hope and healing take place.
Rather than teaching clients to “cope” with their symptoms, I help them to heal.
Often “talk therapy” is not enough to help people feel better! Most people struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD, trauma, chronic stress etc. are experiencing nervous system dis-regulation and need to do more than just talk about it. They tend to benefit from mind + body approaches that offer deep and lasting healing. I use EMDR therapy and LENS Neurofeedback in my treatment approach. The combination of these approaches helps clients to stabilize quicker, be able to do the “work” of therapy, feel more resilient to stressors and sustain greater long-term treatment outcomes when therapy is over. I want to provide you with hope that healing can take place for you, that you can recover from painful life events and your life can be transformed.
I feel a deep sense of gratitude and appreciation for the clients that I work with. I am honored to be able to “hold space” for them and witness their personal healing and life transformation. I walk with clients on their healing journey using a compassionate and non-pathologizing approach. I do not offer services to clients that I haven’t used on myself and found helpful. Whatever it is that brings you to therapy, I will support you on your journey to wellness. As a “trauma informed” therapist, I will create a safe place for you to share your story, explore your goals for therapy and develop an individualized approach for our work together.
When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my husband, our 4 adult children and grandchildren. I love outdoor adventures with my yellow Labrador Retriever named Hanna, exploring the beautiful Northwest and beyond.
I welcome clients of all sexual orientations, lifestyles, cultural and religious backgrounds.
