More about Lynn Hutchinson

I help parents and families to manage their relationships differently, find healthy ways to resolve their issues, and find resolution. I believe people want healthy relationships with others and to feel complete and whole. I believe issues can be resolved by changing how we communicate with the other person. I believe in creating a safe environment for people to be heard, understood and acknowledged. As a client-focused and strength-based therapist I help people deal with loss, anxiety, parenting issues, unresolved emotional issues and relationship/ family concerns.
