Lynn sees clients in Bristol and Cromwell. She has a Ph.D. in Developmental
Psychology from the University of Pittsburgh and a Respecialization Certificate in
Clinical Psychology from Concordia University in Montreal. For the past sixteen years, she has worked in a therapeutic school setting with children and adolescents to address their trauma and emotional/behavioral issues. When working with children and teens, Lynn focuses on improving self-regulation, relationships and functioning at both school and home. She assists caregivers and families to help them understand and respond to behaviors that, on the surface, appear confusing, frustrating or unpredictable. With individuals of all ages, a strengths based and collaborative approach is used to help clients acquire skills and to increase their understanding of challenges. Treatment can include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), play therapy, trauma informed practices, attachment theory, parent training, and solution focused therapy. Lynn's approach recognizes the relationship between brain, mind and body, family and cultural factors, lifespan developmental issues and the importance of promoting hope and empowerment.
