Wellbeing is enhanced through connection, freedom and purpose. Therapy done right builds on personal connection, finds unrecognized freedoms, and orients it all with purpose, values and place. My therapeutic stance integrates these threads with unusual openness, warmth, balanced intellect and wit. My practice cultivates resilience not dependence, vitality not the victim trap ideology that has taken over the field. I can help you acknowledge and overcome painful situations, reckon realistically with limits, and untangle other matters of the heart. Pain is a part of life, but you needn’t suffer or manage alone.

While I treat a wide range of mental health concerns, I specialize in working with those who: are navigating life transitions, including relationship and dating challenges, grief and loss, medical difficulties, or relocation; are striving to find effective ways of managing difficult emotions and communicating with others; have faced interpersonal traumas or identity-based invalidations; or are struggling to engage in meaningful ways with others.

Things that may have felt difficult prior to the pandemic carry a very different load now, as we learn to navigate life with Covid. While the idea of therapy may have felt radical before, it can now offer us a roadmap to developing greater internal strength to steer through the uncertainty. It is deep within our unconscious that we meet our true selves and can then begin the profound work of developing mechanisms for the lives we are seeking. I view it as a great privilege to bear witness to the strength that emerges from the courage of confronting the vulnerability of our own psychology.

I became a therapist because of my early experiences as a client. I finally felt seen and understood rather than defined by the insecure voice in my mind or the events that shaped my life up to that point. Over the last decades I've focused on working with others on the varying symptoms of trauma: depression, anxiety, addiction, perfectionism, low self-esteem, hopelessness, or the belief that healing isn't possible. My clients are ready to work; not because their problems are easily solved, but because they want to experience relief from their pain and a live a life that feels worthy of those efforts.

"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.

Coping with Covid-19 & shelter in place: We’re living in a time of uncertainty, stress and anxiety that is likely once in a lifetime. Survival fears about sickness and death have suddenly surfaced in a manner that most of us have never experienced. For those of us that have pre-existing PTSD, depression or anxiety, those feelings may be particularly amplified. We’re all seeking safety, comfort, and connection during this environment of extreme isolation. In response to these realities, I am offering therapy sessions, including EMDR using Zoom, FaceTime, or phone. Take care of yourselves and take care of one another.

What type of Clayton mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Clayton?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
