Hey I am Lynell!
I love helping people take a deep dive into uncovering the patterns that no longer serve them and watching them transform into who they know they were created to be.
I empower motivated people to become mindful of the ways that they show up in the world and work towards intentionally becoming their best authentic self.
I wholeheartedly believe you are the expert of your experiences. I will walk beside you as you take those experiences and discover your unique path to navigate through this crazy thing called life
My areas of clinical expertise:
I offer online therapy for individuals, couples, and groups.
The importance is normally placed on a therapist’s “specialties,” and while I can help you navigate those concerns mentioned, I like to think that I specialize in first-time therapy goers and those who have been burned by therapy. This is because of the value I place on the therapeutic relationship and my belief that connection and trust must be built before you can feel that you are in a safe space.
In the therapy room, expect to see pieces of my personality, my humor, and my heart, while simultaneously helping you to reach your set goals.
I utilize an integrative approach by incorporating cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused interventions, and mindfulness practices to help you achieve growth, change, and healing.
I am Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) and National Certified Counselor (NCC). I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Master of Education with a concentration in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, both earned from Georgia Southern University. I am currently pursuing my Ph.D. in Counselor Education and Supervision at the University of Georgia. I have a long list of research interests but a few include mental health disparities in the black community, ADHD in adult women, and new counselor personal development.
My self care routine often involves trying a new interesting coffee creamer, walking up Stone Mountain, watching Hell’s Kitchen, or opening a new body wash when my old one isn’t finished yet (I get bored of the same scent for too long)!
