Lynne Boddie

14 years of experience

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor. I am a spiritual and very empathic person. I am analytical and want to find solutions to problems. I believe that all most people need is someone to really listen to them and accept them without judgement. I also believe that a sense of humor goes a long way in navigating life. I believe that other people and experiences are our greatest teachers and that you can learn a lot about life by listening to people's stories. I want to provide that warm safe space for you where you can truly be you.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

I will ask them what brings them to therapy. I will ask them about their symptoms and their history of the symptoms. I will ask them about their history of mental health treatment and if they have ever had therapy before. I will ask them what was helpful and not so helpful in therapy. I will ask them what they want help with and how I can best help them in meeting their goals. I will ask them about their expectations of therapy are.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I have had many traumatic experiences in my own life that drew me to the field, first in self-help books on nutrition, spirituality, relationships, communications, brain-plasticity, addictions, and the power of the mind. I am fascinated with physical and mental health conditions. I am a life-time learner in these issues. I am very down to earth and honest. I am gentle in my communication style. I also have a good sense of humor that I feel is sometimes beneficial in the sessions.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I feel that thoughts are powerful, and it is often no what happens but how you think about what happens that makes the difference. I feel that when one is able to look at another perspective it is often so helpful. I often have clients who say to me, "Oh, I can see where that could be true, I didn't think of that."

Acceptance and commitment (ACT)

I feel that there is power in acceptance. That often it is the resistance that causes the problem. Recognizing a situation or a person as they are and not trying to change it or them is often helpful

Grief Therapy

Grief processing is helping a client to understand the stages of grief and to validate and normalize how real-life grief is often not what one expects.


I believe that a narrative therapy can be very helpful in recognizing how past experiences can contribute to current distress. Learning to identify triggers can help a client determine why an experience may feel so threatening.
