About me

Hi there, my name is Mary Lynn. I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 14 years of experience in coaching and therapy. I am passionate about helping others to unwind, observe, and possibly change thoughts and behaviors that are barriers to living a joyful life. Offering a patient-centered approach, I blend therapeutic styles to what is most helpful and productive for each individual. Whether it is adjusting to a life change, managing anxiousness, or dealing with trauma or loss, let’s work together to observe what is happening in and around us and move forward with intention.

A bit more about my background: I graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Masters in Science in Social Work, specializing in Trauma and Interpersonal Practice. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Motivational Interviewing, and Integrative Therapies.
My professional experiences include working in settings of trauma, healthcare, and international social work providing clinical counseling to individuals and groups.

Please reach out if you'd like!
