As a psychotherapist, life coach and ordained interfaith chaplain, Lynn brings a unique perspective and expertise to her work with clients.


More like a guide than a traditional psychotherapist, Lynn skillfully coaches her clients and helps them navigate through the emotions, relationship challenges and practical issues that arise from both unexpected life circumstances and everyday living. In her more than 30 years as a family systems therapist, Lynn has specialized in working with people facing life-altering illnesses. She has also maintained a general therapy practice, and recently served as a consultant to the Palliative Care Program at Kaiser Hospitals in Northern California. She trained more than 2,500 clinicians in her continuing education programs, and has developed and facilitated retreats for patients, families and caregivers. Lynn earned her PhD in Marital and Family Therapy, and is licensed by the State of California as a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT).


Lynn trained as a Life Coach at the Coaches Training Institute in San Rafael, CA. She blends her coaching expertise with her therapy experience to help people leverage their strengths and develop themselves in ways that bring greater success and satisfaction in their personal lives and careers. 


Ordained as an Interfaith Chaplain, Rev. Lynn is qualified to officiate at weddings and other major life passages. She graduated from and has served on the faculty of the the Chaplaincy Institute of Arts and Interfaith Ministries in Berkeley, CA.

Odd Jobs

With additional talents and credentials as varied as the clients she serves, Lynn also is a popular storyteller and keynote speaker. She lives in Puerto Vallarta with her cat, Leo, and visits Northern California several times a year. Wing walking on airplanes was perhaps her most unusual summer job. Being with friends, kayaking in the Sierras, and watching the pelicans fly past her balcony enrich her life.
