Failure is a greater teacher than success
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes
Lindsay Tassé, LMFT
For over two decades I have personally experienced and trained in holistic modalities and taught alternative methods in education. In 2017, when I became a holistic therapist, I naturally integrated a holistic approach into my practice. Holistic based therapy allows freedom to collaborate and personalize therapy sessions specific to your needs; goals; and personhood. Your life experience is unique and sacred, thus your healing journey is tailored to embrace this.
I am drawn to mindfulness-based approaches that include somatic awareness and expressing through creative arts. I realized from client’s feedback that my strengths developed in holding space for individuals with Eating disorders; HSP trait; and general empathetic distress.
Living in India for two years and serving with underserved populations led to my personal search for more meaning in life and mindfulness practices. My joy for art, celebrations and creative expression inspired a more holistic approach to counseling with expressive arts and integrative therapies. Social justice is also an integral part of my work for the nonprofit I founded in 2022.
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for the state of California and Rhode Island. I am trained in Kingian Nonviolece; Internal Family Systems (IFS); and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). As well, HeartMath® Experience skills. I also hold a certification of advanced graduate studies in Expressive Arts therapy.
Although my structure in therapy sessions is based in IFS, due to my holistic studies background, I have the freedom to weave in Expressive Arts; DBT skills; and HeartMath® experience skills.
My specialty areas are: EATING DISORDERS; PTSD; TRAUMA; HSP TRAIT.
