About Lynne

About Lynne


I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker, specializing in Individual and Couples therapy. I am also a Certified Gottman Therapist and Life Coach.

I have over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist, and another 15 or so providing community-based social services. Although originally from AL, I have lived and worked in several states (AL, KY, IN, CA, NE and GA). I believe this gives me a more global perspective on issues that we all face from time to time. I am experienced in a broad range of issues, but am especially interested in Life Transitions and Couples/Relationship Issues.

My approach to therapy is based on client need, always with a strengths-based/insight-oriented perspective in an affirming, non-judgmental environment. As a CGT, I utilize Gottman Method Couples Therapy which is the gold standard for couples therapy. It's based on over 40 yrs of research by Drs. John & Julie Gottman and colleagues. I use additional methodologies as indicated and am always reading, learning and sharing information with my clients.

I am occasionally able to add new clients, but also have a waiting list.  If you would like to discuss whether we would be a good fit to work together, please contact me.
