LMSW, LICSW

About me

I am a licensed independent clinical social worker with over 25 years of experience working with children, teens, adults and their families in a wide range of settings. I have worked in healthcare, schools, residential settings, and social service organizations. You could say I have "been there and done that". It has been my honor to partner with many people over the years to help them make positive changes in their lives. I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all individuals and that we all have times in our lives when we need to join with others to make course corrections, learn new skills, and work toward a better quality of life.

I tailor my integrative therapy based on the unique strengths and needs of each client. I do have a strong foundation in humanistic and client centered theory, meaning I believe that the client guides the direction of therapy and that you are the expert in you. I come from a strengths based perspective and I believe in building upon the positives to learn new skills, strategies and increase insight. I use techniques from a wide variety of therapies including cognitive-behavioral, solution focused, psychodynamic, and person centered with the ultimate goal of finding what works for each individual. I believe that it is important to work together toward the self identified goals and to see progress as soon as possible, because that is what keeps people engaged in the process. I respect that it is a commitment, of both time and resources., and it is important to see results.

I look forward to talking with you and learning how we might be able to partner together to improve your quality of life.

Lynn has been a great therapist. She was always very understanding and patient. She always gave me a lot of helpful resources on insights on issues that I wanted to talk about. I feel more capable and confident in myself after working with her. She made me feel very comfortable talking to her about my issues.

Lynn has been a wonderful support in my life. She is an excellent listener and provides feedback and ask questions that help me better examine where I am at and how I am feeling. I feel very fortunate to have found her on this platform.

I like how she let's me just talk about what ever is on my mind. She gives great feedback and great advice. I would recommend Lynn to anyone I know.

Written on Jun 16, 2022 after therapy with Lynn for 1 month on issues concerning family conflicts, trauma and abuse, eating disorders, and self esteem

I absolutely love Lynn! She has been truly helpful, and is a wonderful therapist. She listens intently to what I need and provides resources that are useful.

Written on May 17, 2022 after therapy with Lynn for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, trauma and abuse, intimacy-related issues, and coping with life changes

Lynn is an excellent therapist. She is responsive to my walls of text in a way that is timely, validating, and encourages me to continue digging in new directions rather than attaching to what I just laid down. Her hour long video sessions are excellent as well, she's great at letting me run with my thoughts and helping me form new connections with them, for example helping me see when I may be too harsh/critical of myself and when I could be more appreciative/compassionate. Overall I feel very supported by her and I feel more encouraged to grow in my own right by having her in my life!

Very gentle, and open to conversation

Written on Apr 23, 2022 after therapy with Lynn for 1 year and 7 months on issues concerning eating disorders

I have stuck with Lynn for almost 2 years now. She helps me see things in a new light and asks really good questions - questions that make you think. I'm always excited for each session because I know how much Lynn cares and tries to help me. She's my biggest supporter and cheerleader, and it feels good to have someone like that in my life.

Written on Oct 06, 2021 after therapy with Lynn for 1 year on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Lynn is the best! She really cares about her clients and really remembers so much about me and that shows how much she cares. I really appreciate how she respects me and doesn't just present solutions she thinks may work but asks what I would like from her too.
