Lindsey Buchanan began her career by studying Psychology at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. She then obtained her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from ASU as well. During her time in graduate school she took extra courses to receive certificates in both Addictions Counseling and Multicultural Counseling. Lindsey gained experience with individuals, couples, groups, and families through interning at a site focused on addiction recovery and trauma. She also gained valuable knowledge by volunteering for a women’s shelter that provides safety and resources to those who have experienced domestic violence.
After graduation, Lindsey moved to the triangle where she began her career in private practice working with teens, adults, and couples. She gravitates towards a collaborative strengths based approach in therapy. Lindsey uses a variety of theories including Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. Lindsey is passionate about creating a safe and welcoming environment for her clients. She believes change happens when people feel comfortable and challenged. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate (LMFTA), Lindsey takes into consideration all of the systems that are impacting her client’s lives in order to help create lasting change. Her goal is to help her clients focus on solutions and utilize the natural resources in their lives.
Lindsey specializes in adults that experience Anxiety, Depression, Self-Esteem Issues, Life Transitions, Trauma, Stress Management, and Relationship Issues. Lindsey also enjoys working with teens, couples, and is LGBTQ+ affirming.
When not conducting therapy, you will often find Lindsey engaging in self-care activities, such as spending time with her two cats, reading books, doing yoga, playing video games, and exploring the triangle.
