I work from a psychodynamic orientation, emphasizing affect and expression of emotion; exploration of attempts to avoid uncomfortable thoughts and emotions; identifying and exploring unwanted or disadvantageous patterns in relationships and life; and interpersonal issues.
As a therapist, I am passionate about supporting others in their search for greater awareness, meaning, integration, clarity, relief, freedom, and authenticity. This process often takes space and time as well as willingness and courage. I feel honored to be invited into others' unique and powerful narratives (which often may include loss, pain, loneliness, and uncertainty) and to journey alongside in a supportive and compassionate way.

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.

"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 Due to internal and/or environmental stresses, children can become withdrawn, oppositional, easily overwhelmed, and scared.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.
