  I work with couples in therapy to help them:

  • Rediscover the joy of being together.
  • Understand how the  qualities that once attracted you to each other now often cause conflicts and tension.
  • Move from isolation to connectedness.
  • Learn how to move from reacting to purposeful action.
  • Learn how to identify, understand and fulfill your partners needs.
  • Learn how to express your own desires.
  • Reconnect to keep the love you have.
  • Create healthier more satisfying relationships with greater intimacy.
  • Conflict is inevitable, however fighting is optional.
  • Learn how to resolve differences compassionately.
  • Create fun, romance, passion and laughter.
  • Create a compelling and lasting    relationship vision.
  • Learn how to communicate so you actively listen and understand each other.
  • How to work through sexual issues.

Make Love Last: The Cure For Counter Attraction 
With the use of the tools from Make Love Last: The Cure For Counter Attraction, Lynn has successfully helped  couples improve communication, rekindle romance and passion, and enrich their relationships.

Lynn completed a one year certificate program in Interanalytic Couples and Sex Therapy taught by Walter E. Brackelmanns, M.D. at UCLA

The program’s emphasis was to teach couples and sex therapy as a combined discipline. The model of therapy is based on Dr. Brackelmanns' extensive years of experience teaching couples to empathically connect with each other’s inner experience thereby creating a deeper bond of closeness, intimacy and understanding.
