About me

Hello and welcome to BetterHelp! My name is Lynnette and I applaud you for beginning this journey we call therapy. Whether you’re new to the therapy experience or you’ve been in therapy before, I am here to help you along your journey to wellness and wholeness. I have a Master’s in Social Work from the University of Chicago and 35 years of experience. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and have engaged individuals, couples, and families in a variety of settings addressing issues such as depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, interpersonal and family conflict as well as parent-child relationships. I have also helped clients improve self-esteem, coping skills, adjust to major life changes as well as improve problem-solving and decision-making skills. Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy and Motivational Interviewing are the primary approaches utilized and clients are encouraged to actively participate in the therapy process by setting their own goals and evaluating progress towards achieving them. Finally, I am concerned about all aspects of a client’s life therefore nothing is “off-limits” during therapy. Thank you for allowing me to share my background with you. I have daytime, evening, and weekend hours to meet your needs and look forward to working with you!

To have someone like this woman is amazing.. my first two sessions I teared up while we had our moments of conversations. I felt that I could open up and be me . So it was easy to bring her into my world.

I have only had 3 sessions with Lynnette, but I would highly recommend her. I deal with anxiety and thus far, she had recommended quite a few self-care truths, relaxation techniques and meditation tools. She puts great emphasis on self-care, which I lack in my life. She is a wealth of information and quite knowledgeable in many areas. I appreciate her candor, insight, and her caring ways. I feel we are making headway, in probing where a lot of my anxiety comes from. We are working to help me manage my anxiety better, so thank you Lynnette.

Mrs. Lynnette is amazing! She’s helped me come along way, I still have work to do but, I’m extremely grateful for her.

Lynnette Thomas has been the most competent, productive, and proactive health care professional I have ever met. I am twenty five and have been under the care of health professionals since before I was teen. No one has ever shown the stability and insight that Lynnette does. I don't doubt a single thing about her credentials and experience. I know that she can help me break down anything I bring to her and find the root cause. I've wanted to love the experience of my health care and make progress and I finally can.
