Practice Description:
Hello, All,

I am currently 'seeing' all patients on phone or video sessions. Please don't hesitate to call or email me if you need someone to talk with at this very uncertain time. Warmly, Lynn

I work with people who feel overly anxious...often a result of our increasingly complex modern life, or too much machine time and not enough time devoted to people who are likely to respond warmly and emotionally to you. Or maybe, you're feeling frustrated, angry, confused or saddened and wish you could find a way to understand why, rather than be controlled by unruly emotions.

I like to work with people who can allow themselves to be curious about how 'just talking' can make a difference ... how life can be changed by a slight tilt of your current lens to reveal a new view for rethinking. I believe talking can help resolve numerous troubling problems that interfere with creative aspirations, growth, and success.

I also help people who pull their hair. Perhaps you've realized that your 'will' alone can't overcome this compelling demand. Trichotillomania is a secretive, stubborn and embarrassing symptom that I have seen respond to psychodynamic therapy and, even more dramatically and permanently, to psychoanalysis. For individuals with determination, commitment, and curiosity, psychoanalysis can increase your self awareness, make sense of this unusual symptom, and be a transformative experience.

Additional Comments: "FINISH WHAT YOU'VE STARTED" A familiar phrase? For some students, that goal seems just too hard . You get bogged down by procrastination or a difficult writing assignment or a lack of self esteem. You need a helping hand from someone who can help sort out the confusion and frustration and get you refocused and restarted. You may be a soldier who wants to continue your education, a woman who'd love to go back to college, or a graduate student who feels stuck somewhere in your process. If you are stumbling over this ambition, we can work together to make that goal real. Graduation makes the difference between being a student and the graduate with letters after your name. It's a real source of great personal joy.
