I am passionate about working with people who are struggling with many of life’s challenges, such as depression, anxiety, relationship issues, grief & loss, emotional eating, self-esteem, trauma, and other related challenges. In addition, I am interested in helping those who are going through life transitions and existential issues. Many of the people I work with want to understand themselves at a deeper level, transform their limiting beliefs, reduce anxiety and depression, seek more meaning in life, and become better versions of themselves. They no longer want to suffer - they want to be empowered, self-confident, and at peace.

I created The Relationship Model of Addiction, a new paradigm for understanding addiction and recovery. Addiction is viewed as a relationship (not a disease), with a means of relief of pain from unmet emotional needs. Recovery is seen as a three-stage transitional journey out of unhealthy relationships and into healthy ones: Stage I – Breaking-up; Stage II – Developing the Relationship with Self; Stage III – Creating Emotionally Nourishing Relationships.The over-arching theme in all of the work I do is to empower the transformation of relationships by developing the relationship with Self.

Your child may be using challenging behaviors to communicate, and my goal is to help you identify the feeling or need underneath the behavior.

"Anyone with children knows that they are challenging as well as rewarding. It is when these challenges outweigh the loving relationship that children start to typically manifest symptoms. Due to internal and/or environmental stresses, children can become withdrawn, oppositional, easily overwhelmed, and scared. This in turn can compromise your child's present and future relationships, academic performance, self-esteem, and the parent-child relationship. When difficulties are addressed early, children gain a sense of mastery and safety lasting a lifetime." Dr. Lynch has worked with young children in preschool, research, state/county, and clinical settings over the last ten years.

Dear caregivers, take a deep breath.. After almost a year in a Pandemic, these may be the most difficult moments of your life. Routines and rituals we have enjoyed, as well as the connections with others have been interrupted and for many have ceased. Children are taking cues from stressed and emotionally exhausted caregivers. You may be seeing your child act out more, demonstrate increased anxiety, anger or withdraw. This can be overwhelming and know that you are not alone. All families are experiencing some heightened stress these days. I hold hope and will help you and your child navigate the challenges present.

We all need support because at times life can be difficult. It may be enough to talk with friends or other people you trust but sometimes not. Maybe you are feeling alone or not connected with yourself and people around you. Therapy can be a way to help you reconnect. I offer a genuine environment in which we look together how you can get back on track. I believe that connection is a basic human need: being connected with yourself and with the people around you.
