About Me

I teach specific strategies to cope with stress and the emotional ups and downs that addictive behaviors produce. In fact, I wrote Intentional JOY: How to Turn Stress, Fear & Addiction (on Amazon) specifically to help my clients deal with the negative thinking, stress and emotional ups and downs that drive addictive behaviors. As a substance abuse counselor and food addiction therapist I help individuals, family members and couples regain a sense of Self, change addictive habits and learn to lovingly and effectively communicate limits with others. As a holistically trained counselor I work with the whole person – mind, body, emotions & spirit, depending on the needs of my clients. I have an M.A. in Psychology with a Holistic Specialization and am a Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor in private practice.

Lynn is the author of two books: Intentional JOY: How to Turn Stress, Fear & Addiction into Freedom and The Greatest Change of All.  Lynn’s counseling style is direct, caring, empowering.  She knows that while humor doesn’t change difficult situations, it can lighten the journey.
