Like all Shift Psychologists, Lindsay is trained in the Shift Protocol, which is the highly effective blending of two well-researched approaches: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). She also has experience in mindfulness, solution-focused, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy techniques. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of Saskatchewan where she was captivated by her research on the treatment of psychopathic sexual offenders.

Lindsay thoroughly enjoys helping individuals overcome anxiety and mood disorders, stress, trauma, and relationship issues to increase their overall functioning. Lindsay brings enthusiasm, warmth, openness, and a dash of humour to establish a nonjudgmental therapeutic relationship, where clients are able to explore where they may be feeling stuck, develop new adaptive strategies, and create a more fulfilling life. In the past, she has taken a collaborative approach when working with individuals, couples, groups, and students of all ages across hospital, rural clinics, and forensic mental health settings. She feels strongly about empowering clients whether through therapy or recommendations offered through comprehensive assessments. When she is not immersed in collaborating with clients to create true satisfaction with their lives, you could find her talking about, thinking about, cooking up, or devouring delicious food, or bringing out her inner HGTV star by attempting to tackle home renovation projects. She also really loves laughing too loud, singing every word to country music, and being by water as often as possible.

SHIFT 101 – Cognitive Dissonance

The reason why our Limiting Beliefs are so hard to change is because of a term called Cognitive Dissonance. What this essentially means is that we feel a massive amount of discomfort when our…

Perfectionism; We “should” all over ourselves…

Whether it's coming from seeing social media where we are looking at others "highlight reels" and feeling like we need to live as great and perfect life as they seem to be living. Or it's feeling…

Why do I keep doing that $#*! that I hate myself for doing?

So we all have our own types of opt-out behaviours. Sometimes we use some more than others. Some examples are, having great plans to go home and have a healthy meal and play a game of cards. When you…

If you’re like me, you hear about the latest self-improvement book, maybe through a friend, on a table at Chapters, or even on the cover of O magazine while you’re cashing out at the grocery store, and you think “hey! I should pick that up!” You buy the book with every intention of reading it…but then you get busy, you work all day, commute home in rush hour, make dinner, get the house in order, and by the time you have a few minutes to read the only thing you have energy for is crappy reality TV or brain candy books (I’m looking at you, Amy Schumer’s memoir). The self-improvement book sits on your shelf gathering dust.

Well, I have discovered a fantastic solution. Audiobooks! These are great for finally getting through those books while on your commute or for listening to while you’re going for a walk or using the treadmill! My go-to place for audiobooks is audible.com. They have a ton of really great life enhancing books available (and some of those brain candy ones too). This is a great option for getting around to finally getting to those books and making your life a little more awesome!

Some of my favorite listens are:



Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead. By Brené Brown, Ph. D., LMSW.


Wherever You Go There You Are: Mindfulness Meditation in Everyday Life
By Jon Kabat-Zinn, Ph. D.


The Confidence Gap: A Guide to Overcoming Fear and Self-Doubt.By Russ Harris, Stephen Hayes, Ph. D.
