11 years of experience
Solution oriented

Hi, I am Lynn Ford. I am a licensed clinical social worker who utilizes a variety of evidenced based strategies to provide you with the tools you require to address your treatment goals. My belief is that therapy should be client-driven and goal-oriented. I have over a decade of experience working with people of all ages, including children, but my focus has recently been on 18-75 years of age with anxiety, depression, adjustment disorder, grief, ADHD and communication issues in regards to relationships and parenting. I strive to provide a safe, non-judgmental, unbiased environment to empower individuals to explore their beliefs and concerns while gaining or enhancing skills to address their therapeutic needs.
