I take an active role in our sessions, utilizing cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness, interpersonal, and client-centered interventions, to explore the causes of your distress and how to resolve them.
Many of my clients describe me as compassionate, open-minded, and patient, while maintaining a good sense of humor. I utilize these traits to build rapport with clients, while also drawing upon my knowledge and skill in research-supported interventions to alleviate mental and emotional distress. I specialize in working with adults and adolescents struggling with depression, anxiety, stress management, and life transitions. I also work with people to accept and tolerate their emotional distress, to appropriately communicate their needs in relationships, and to find meaning and purpose in their work, academic, and personal lives.

I am also influenced by Jungian theory and experienced with personality frameworks such as Myers-Briggs and the Enneagram, which aid in self-understanding and interpersonal growth.
Therapy offers potential for healing and opportunity for growth, and I am passionate about supporting clients through this process. I work with individuals, couples, and families in a variety of practice areas including anxiety, depression, relational conflict, identity development, and life transitions. I believe that each person has a unique story and carries valuable potential that is waiting to be unlocked and refined. I guide clients toward developing the personal strength and balance needed to meet life’s challenges, and I empower clients to live authentic, purposeful, and connected lives. I help clients uncover patterns that they seek to change and work with them to find new, creative solutions for moving forward to achieve their goals. As a former educator, I have extensive experience working with children and adolescents. I understand the challenges that both children and parents face in today’s world and how these affect family dynamics. Since relational interactions are important to mental and emotional health, I work with clients on developing positive communication skills in order to experience more fulfilling and harmonious relationships in all areas of life.

The most important journey you may make in your life is the journey of building an honest and compassionate relationship with yourself. From shame, pride, trauma, and introjected "shoulds" there are so many reasons that we often operate from a partial and compassionless understanding of ourselves. These blind spots can cause us anxiety, depression, addictions and a multitude of other symptoms that we mistake to be "who we are". I have faith in the human condition and the ability our heal into our own fullness. Therapy is the place to make this journey.

Let's face it. Life is a juggling act between home, work, school, friends and family. Our bodies are bioenergetic systems geared for balance. When things go well, our energy flows and we feel good. When life happens and stress occurs, we can feel anxiety, depression and physical pain. We reach outside ourselves for relief when going inside is the answer. If you are ready for change and are committed to making that happen, please make an appointment today. My approach is wholistic and I use Energy Psychology (Tapping), Zen Buddhism and Mindfulness to achieve a client's goals.

"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.

It is my belief that everyone navigates his or her way through their family of origin and early environment by developing strategies and coping techniques, essentially doing the best one can in the circumstances. Later, these ways of handling relationships and stressors can become limiting. Members of couples and families can also develop entrenched ways of relating that become partially based on assumptions. Frustration, anxiety, disappointment and resentment can result. Psychotherapy enables you to understand the evolution of these patterns and develop more choices in how you respond and relate to others.
