About me

I am a licensed clinical social worker with 30 years of experience in both medical and mental health. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, grief, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges and ADHD. I also helped people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic and solution focused. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Lynn Kinney. 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.

Written on Jan 19, 2023 after therapy with Lynn for 1 year and 5 months on issues concerning family conflicts, and parenting issues

Lynn and I worked together for about 18 months. We began by addressing family concerns and later she helped me with my anxiety. Although I realize my anxiety will be a lifelong thing, I now know confidently how to manage it and I feel more in control of those moments thanks to Lynn. She is warm, caring, kind, humble, professional and an incredible listener. Her clinical insight is like a 6th sense and she has a beautiful and near effortless way of knowing how to support you while also challenge you. Increased awareness and personal growth are inevitable with Lynn as a therapist. By far my favorite thing about how Lynn practices is she looks at you as a whole person vs just a client. She is ever so cognizant of having your best interest in mind during every interaction. If you’re reading this and struggle with anxiety sometimes, I encourage you to book a session with Lynn- ask her to tell you about “leaves on a stream” :) it’s one of my favorite tools Lynn taught me. I use it weekly, sometimes daily. Lynn if you’re reading this, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. :)

Lynn’s expertise in my particular stressors is so helpful. I’m so glad she and I got matched on BetterHelp. She always has practical advice and solutions, and helps me see things from a new perspective. She helps reframe my world, which frankly relieves the shame and performance anxiety I needlessly carry. Having Lynn is like having a life coach at my fingertips.

Written on Jul 05, 2022 after therapy with Lynn for 7 months on issues concerning depression, and stress, anxiety

Everyone needs a Lynn. I leave every appointment feeling so positive, hopeful, comforted and sometimes even energized. And no matter what issue I bring to the table, she always has such great insight to help me through.

Written on Jul 04, 2022 after therapy with Lynn for 1 year on issues concerning adhd

I've worked with Lynn for a year and the difference I feel in myself is amazing. I feel much more grounded and in touch with myself, as well as more resilient. I struggle with depression and adhd but I'm now able to identify and plan to prevent issues arising with my mental health while still living my life to the fullest, instead of feeling like I have to choose between enjoying myself or looking after myself. Lynn is also very flexible and accommodating when it comes to arranging times for sessions. Working with Lynn has been one of the best desicions I've made for my health.

Written on Oct 04, 2021 after therapy with Lynn for 2 months on issues concerning career difficulties, coping with life changes, coaching, and adhd

Lynn has really helped change bad habits and mindsets so that I am much happier, more productive, and enjoy life a lot more. I didn't want to do therapy at first. I thought it was not a good use of money and not "manly enough." Little did I realize, this investment in myself is having a long term payout!
