Marcia Lindsey, Psy.D., M.S.W. is a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in adult therapy, neurofeedback and insomnia treatment and maintains a private practice in Bellaire Texas. She received her Psy.D. and M.S.W. at the University of Denver and was an intern and post-doctoral fellow at the Veteran's Administration Medical Center, Houston and has been in practice for more than 25 years.
Dr Lindsey is a solution-focused therapist whose approach is to provide practical and supportive feedback for problems that involve depression, anxiety and relationship problems. She favors non-invasive, less medication-oriented forms of treatment which might be called psychotherapy for everyday life given your individual strengths and challenges as a person. This work begins with a thorough assessment of your assets, followed by a unique treatment plan selecting from a variety of methods utilizing both talk therapy and newer brain-focused solution approaches.
In 2010, after being in practice for many years, Dr Lindsey was awarded the American Academy of Sleep Medicine's mini-fellowship to study advanced techniques in the treatment of insomnia at Duke University's Sleep Medicine Clinic. She continues to be a member of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and treats insomnia with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia, a non-invasive alternative to medication which is considered by the academy's research to be the gold standard of care for insomnia, as well as neurofeedback.
In 2018, Dr Lindsey joined two other practicing psychologists to form a company www.newpathwaysneurofeedback.com for the study and practice of neurofeedback, a 40 year old scientifically studied method of training brain waves using the EEG to treat worry and anxiety, depression, stress, insomnia, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and other common mental health problems. This pleasant, non-invasive form of treatment requires minimal effort on the part of the patient to gradually teach the brain to function in more optimal states that sustain their capacity to operate at it's best level of functioning.
