Lynn Cohen


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Social worker with over 25 years of experience currently in private practice in Nashville, Tennessee. I believe that it takes courage to enter into therapy. Therefore, I work hard to develop trust and compassionate understanding with you. My approach is psychodynamic with specialties in Jungian dream analysis, somatic therapy and EMDR for trauma. I integrate a psychodynamic, client-centered, and cognitive behavioral style tuning into where you are and your stated needs. My clients tend to be those with stress, anxiety, grief and trauma issues.

This is your time to delve into your self and I am there to empower, understand, and bring clarity to your issues. I have found that self compassion is often lacking in very compassionate individuals, so waking up to all that is alive in you and creating self compassion is an important therapeutic goal.

I look forward to working with you!
