About me

Hello, I am a licensed social work therapist in Massachusetts with 30 years of professional work experience. If you are a client facing mid life challenges or a client who is facing challenges of growing older then I can help. Our lives bring unexpected events that can be scarey, or depressing. Relationship changes, family conflicts, financial stress are just some of the reasons people like yourself come to therapy. If you suffer from chronic illness, loss of a job, a loved one, or just wondering who you are in your stage of life, then I can help. I utilize my skills of compassion, understanding, healing,amd humor (when appropriate!). I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. It takes courage to reach out for help and I am here to support & empower you in that journey. Taking care of yourself is of the utmost importance and I hope you will let me be part of your team.

I had started better help little over a month ago, and I was reluctant to seek out help or to have somebody listen to my problems. Lynda has been a great listener and also given great advice and self-reflective questions that help me understand some of the deeper misconnections that I currently have in life with myself friends and family, and so I am grateful for the opportunity to have been matched with her and to experience a great support through this application. I will continue to use this and with the help of Lynda create a better mindset path for myself and my future.
