About me

My name is Lynn Murphy and I earned a Masters Degree from The University of Iowa in 2019 with a focus in Individual, Family and Group therapy. I am licensed in Louisiana as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, in Mississippi as a Licensed Certified Social Worker and in Iowa as a Licensed Independent Social Worker. My experience includes working with anxiety, stress, ADHD, trauma/abuse and family issues. I have worked with children, adolescents, adults and families so I have an overall picture of how mental health issues affect the entire family system.

I believe in meeting my clients where they are emotionally and assisting them to reach their full potential. I am non-judgmental and open minded which assists my clients in feeling comfortable with me. My work is typically based in Cognitive Behavioral therapy and strength-based therapy.

I can be messaged through Better Help at any time and I will contact you in a short time. Congratulations on making the first step in reaching your full potential. I look forward to working with you to assist you in reaching that goal.

Lynn was quite insightful related to what seems to me to be a lot of family dynamics. She helped to sort things out and posed the right questions and assisted greatly.

Lynn has a great personality and isn't afraid to really make me think about things and point things out that otherwise I may never have thought of myself. I really enjoy working with Lynn.

Lynn is amazing, we get along so well and she listens. she isnt pushy and for once I actually feel like the professional I am speaking to wants to help not just collect a check.
