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.

Living a life where struggling is a regular experience is difficult to change, because no one wants to feel worse. Therapy helps by talking through what's happened, what feels wrong and what ideas you have about it, all which may be conscious or unconscious. What's unconscious surfaces naturally through our dialogue together. Most people enter therapy afraid, because they don't know where to start or are overwhelmed because so much has happened. With over 25 years of experience, I can help you navigate this terrain to relieve pain, clarify thoughts and beliefs, and to improve feelings of well-being.

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 Due to internal and/or environmental stresses, children can become withdrawn, oppositional, easily overwhelmed, and scared.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