“I had developed some poor coping skills. I had tried for over a year to do something different on my own but was unsuccessful.
Lynne helped me to understand why I was reacting the way I was and together we developed healthier ways of coping. I felt like I in this horrible cycle that I simply couldn’t get out of until I asked for help. I really appreciated the way Lynne just didn’t ‘talk’ about the issue, but that she helped me to come up with very tangible ways to combat it.
I have learned to recognize uncomfortable feelings when they arise and find more appropriate ways to deal with them. Many times it simply involves recognizing the feeling and telling myself its okay to feel that way. I’ve become more comfortable with myself and those around me. I’ve learned to speak up. I’m the happiest I’ve been in a really long time.”
“I’d struggled throughout my life with feelings of insecurity. I found myself in a pattern where I was unhappy and dissatisfied with things in my life, yet I continuously made the same choices with the same unsatisfactory results.
Working with Lynne was one of the best things I could have done for myself. She helped me to identify the issues that caused dissatisfaction and pain, learned how I was currently dealing with these issues, and then helped me to unlearn the destructive thought processes that kept me in the cycle of insecurity. All the while letting me be the judge of what was acceptable in my life.
Since working with Lynne, I’ve learned so much about who I am and who I want to be. I’ve noticed a tremendous change in the way I view myself, and I feel empowered to make good life choices for myself.”
