Lynde aims to provide compassionate care by way of authentic regard for each client and their experiences. Lynde uses a strengths-based integrative approach to counseling, and she strongly believes that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. Her areas of clinical focus are trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, marital and relationship issues, parenting concerns, and challenges associated with aging.
Lynde and her husband are Texas transplants who have grown to love Tennessee. Together they parent four children, ages 25, 22, 16, and 13. When Lynde is not holding space for her clients, you can find her playing board games with her family, enjoying water (lakes, oceans, and hot baths), reading, or cooking.
