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 Due to internal and/or environmental stresses, children can become withdrawn, oppositional, easily overwhelmed, and scared.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

Respect for individuals inner self-knowing and my desire to be with whatever problems or pain being faced, is what moves my clients forward. Not being alone in one's experience's is key to healing. If we are a good match, our connection invites my clients to appreciate that their anxiety, depression and relationship issues are merely the body and minds way of attempting to restore health. Nurturing the healthy parts creates greater acceptance and self trust for all aspects of oneself. The resultant comfort allows one to approach, what may have felt like ominous misguided symptoms, with compassion.

I also help parents and families understand and deal with the mistaken goals of misbehavior. I believe there is always a reason, feeling or unmet need. Understanding and addressing the underlying message helps build bridges with kids and teens.

I have seen that much of the pain in my clients stems from the emotional or physical stress that is too much for the nervous system. Every person’s experience of events can be different; therefore, the same event/emotion/stress has unique impacts on the person.
