Ethlyn Holly

LCSW-C

About Me

Hello. My name is Lyn Holly. I am a Clinical Social Worker. I have been practicing for about 7 years. Prior to that I worked in child welfare. I have also had the great experience to raise 4 amazing adults, volunteered for girls scouts, community, schools and had different work experiences. My treatment approach would most closely be identified as eclectic as I have trained in many different modalities. I believe it is my responsibility as your therapist to have the correct tool for you. I also believe we all have within us the innate wellness we were born with but sometimes life and our thoughts have moved us away from that place of wellness. Most of us need someone who will listen empathically, hold space with us, believe in us, remind us of our strengths and abilities and maybe provide some tools we have not had before. As your therapist I will be that person to listen with empathy, hold space with you, remind you of your strengths and abilities, build on those strengths and abilities with tools and walk with you to your innate wellbeing.

Ethlyn has been phenomenal so far helping my work through a difficult time in life.

She is so sweet and understanding. I love that she helps to break down my problems then help to build a way to overcome them.

My sessions with Ethlyn Holly have been very helpful. She exceeded my expectations for a therapist. She listens well and gently guides my thinking.

Great fit for myself!

Lyn is my third therapist, but she’s the first one that has made me feel seen and heard, the first one to truly validate my emotions. She encourages me to challenge my own thoughts and behaviors, and she even outright challenges them herself when she sees that it might be necessary in order to disrupt my thought patterns.

She has been with me through the toughest challenges I’ve had to endure and she makes sure to remind me of all the progress I’ve made when I’m feeling defeated. She is caring and comforting.

Ethlyn's style is very effective for me. She's easy to talk to and very insightful. She offers ideas, solutions, and considerations in a way that is helpful. I feel like my time spent with her is worthwhile and after speaking with her I am often able to approach my issues more productively than I was before.

Lyn has a calming, self-assured presence that is contagious. Her delivery is gentle yet deliberate. I have been replaying her words of wisdom over in my head and it’s been helping to elevate my vibration (energy) and therefore effect change! I am grateful to be in counsel with Lyn. Would love to stay in touch for tune up sessions :-) after this round of sessions conclude.

A very amazing and genuine soul. I gained so much from my short time with Ms Holly and I am so happy I was paired with her. She helped me to manage my anxiety and focus on my inner wisdom and self worth. Thank you so much! I will never forget this experience.

Ethyln is a wonderful therapist, listener and all-around wise soul! I appreciate her ideas around anxiety management to help myself and my daughter.

Lyn actively listens and offers insight and new ideas instead regurgitating old therapies that aren't always effective. She is personable and relatable. She is one of the good ones in this field.

Lyn meets me where I am, encourages me in areas where I'm lacking, and in just two sessions has shared valuable resources that support my ability to better care for myself. Have had in-person therapy in the past and feel like I'm getting more out of this multi-faceted platform where she can send me items that provoke additional insights and journaling.

Ethlyn Holly is truly a smart and strategic soul. She has helped me in an authentic way, and allows me to open up to the bigger picture of what is unfolding in my life. This is my first experience with therapy, and I am so grateful it is with Ethlyn. Thank you so much!

I have had so many important realisations in such a short space of time! All thanks to Ethlyn’s amazing guidance and advice. I was nervous to start my journey but i ended up looking forward to my weekly sessions! Thanks so much :) can’t wait to use my (recently acquired) tool belt of techniques.

Not sure how I can put into words how much Ethlyn Holly helped me in such a short period of time. She provided me with support in the exact ways that I needed, and I felt comfortable from day 1. She taught me valuable techniques that will help me manage my mental health independently. Even though I live on the other side of the world, Ethlyn Holly fit me into her schedule in a way that was easy for me. Her daily messages, which included insightful quotes, were a lovely reminder that I had ongoing support even outside our weekly video session.

The day I decided to sign up for better help, I was hurting. Although I didn’t know what to expect and thought it was a bit expensive for me, I didn’t care. I needed some help and needed right there and then. Today I am glad to say that I don’t regret a bit of having made that choice. Working with Lyn was a great experience and I am thankful she was the one I was assigned to. She is very attentif and listen to me ramble every time

Work with me!
