I embrace my journey as a perfectly imperfect laboratory for learning. My path has been a challenging and beautiful process of learning and self-discovery. It has carved my passion and honed my calling. This process has brought me to where I am today, both personally and professionally.
As my journey continues to evolve, I practice self-attunement, self-trust and self-compassion as practices to support myself in being a healing presence with others.
I have over 26 years of professional experience helping others. My work is my passion and I am excited to offer a variety of services to assist clients in achieving their desired outcomes.
Psychotherapy is learning and healing parts of your self that hold distortions (I’m not good enough, self-doubt, pleasing people to earn their love, perfectionism) and painful, strong emotions (shame, self-hate, guilt) so that we can access our true, more authentic self.
"Life-changing" isn’t a term I throw around loosely, but that’s exactly what my experience with Lynn has been. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for most of my life and have seen many therapists over the years, but it wasn’t until I began working with Lynn that I finally gained a deeper understanding of my problems and learned how to deal with them. The work we did together wasn’t always easy, but she expertly guided me through it, drawing from her vast knowledge. Thanks to her, I am now living a much better life than I thought possible.
I came to Lynn for help at one of the most difficult times in my life: the end of a marriage. I was needing to understand how it happened and grieve about it so that I can move forward. Through our sessions and the timely resources she provided, she helped me overcome the adversity and challenged me to make some positive, healthier changes in myself. While our work together lasted less than four months, the changes I made during that experience have stayed with me to this day. The approach she took with me to understand my issues and offer advice for how to properly deal with them is what makes her unique as a therapist. I highly recommend her.
