There are many aspects of the art world. One of them includes art therapy; expressing one's self through creating art with the intention of healing as a therapeutic technique. Art can sometimes reveal deep meanings and folks strategically use it as a coping strategy.

She provides individual and group counseling at the Brien Center and her specialty is addiction treatment and co-occurring disorders. Lindsey also leads a yoga/cognitive behavioral therapy group and is a team member for process improvement projects in our Addiction Treatment Program.
