About me

Hi, I am Lynn Ford. I am a licensed clinical social worker who utilizes a variety of evidenced based strategies to provide you with the tools you require to address your treatment goals. My belief is that therapy should be client-driven and goal oriented. I have over a decade of experience working with people of all ages, including children, but my focus has recently been on 18-45 year olds with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, ADHD and communication issues in regards to relationships and parenting. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental, unbiased environment to empower individuals to explore their beliefs and concerns while gaining or enhancing skills to address your therapeutic needs.

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Aillen Ford. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.

We've had the pleasure of working with Aillen as our therapist, and it's been a truly enriching experience. Aillen stands out as an exceptional listener, always giving us the space and attention we need to express ourselves. Her warm and caring personality makes every session feel welcoming and comfortable. Her depth of knowledge and understanding is evident in the way she guides our conversations and offers insights that are both helpful and thought-provoking. As a couple, we find our sessions with Aillen incredibly valuable, and we always leave feeling heard and supported. Aillen is not just a therapist; she's an amazing person who genuinely cares about our well-being. We highly recommend her to anyone seeking a compassionate and skilled therapist.

Aillen is a fantastic listener and someone who is very nonjudgemental and insightful (you know, like a good therapist should be).

I definitely recommend her.

Lynn has been excellent to talk to. She understand my motivations and provides tools for me to better understand the situations I find myself in. She is an excellent listener without just being a cheer leader.
