I am a family and marriage counselor with experience working with adolescents, individuals and couples, I respect that personal growth is individualized and I honor the client's own sense of self reflection. I am an active listener and see the client and therapist connection as the basis of co-creators of healing for the client.
I have experience in grief counseling, CBT, depression, anxiety using a myriad of approaches.
I am a Christian but do not promote any dogmas that do not fit with the client's growth and focus.
I draw upon my own life experiences ( I've been married for 49 years) as well as documented relationship work in my ongoing continuing education for relationship therapy.

Lynn is amazing! She was able to help me identify traumas I’ve never dealt with since I was a child. I was able to gain more perspective and awareness on who I am and what I needed to heal and focus on.

Mary is a good listener and communicator and you can tell she is invested in you! From the first moment we spoke, I felt comfortable with her and it was easy to open up. I'd recommend her anytime!

It seems to me that one of the hardest parts of starting therapy is finding the right therapist. We went through several before finding in Lynn (yes, Mary on her listing) exactly what we had hoped to find all along: someone who is clearly caring and kind, but also with a really impressive gift for getting right to the heart of the relationship issues that brought us to couples therapy in the first place. She hears what we're both saying even when we aren't necessarily hearing each other -- but then she helps us both learn to hear the other, and we always leave sessions with new insights. If you have been struggling to find the right therapist, or putting off therapy for fear of the difficulty of finding the right person, then I hope this review gives you the encouragement to try a session with Lynn. I recommend her highly and without hesitation, confident that she can do for you what she has done for us.
