Lynne is a non-traditional practitioner and seasoned professional who has supported her clients through all kinds of life issues — including addiction, problematic relationships and spiritual malaise. Lynne utilizes a unique blend of methods accrued from her studies, travel and twenty six years experience in private practice; all of which are grounded in universal & metaphysical principles.
Lynne came up through the ranks of experiential learning rather than the more traditional academic route. She started out in the mental health field in the early seventies, hired and trained by an HMO (health maintenance organization) in social work and mental health. She has been in the field of personal growth ever since — moving to the addictions field in the early eighties, where she was one of the pioneers for co-dependency and family of origin work in her town of Chattanooga, Tennessee.
As a perpetual student of life and consciousness, Lynne has devoted her career to studying with masters of various disciplines. Family dynamics, Jungian principles; dreams & shadow work, psychodrama & energy as well as the laws of manifestation, body oriented practices such as yoga, physical unwinding and qigong are just some of the approaches Lynne applies in her work with others.
Through her work with clients, Lynne has developed a unique understanding of how the mind works and ways to liberate it from the throes of what she calls the “victim mind”.
Lynne teaches that we react to life in one of two ways — we’re either reacting out of thevictim mind or we see life through the eyes of the observer self which witnesses without judgment.
The victim mind is a state of consciousness that prompts us to react as if what we feel, believe or do is caused by something outside of us. We see ourselves as being at the mercy of our life circumstances.
The observer mind, on the other hand, understands that there is only one cause to our unhappiness — and that is what’s going on in our own mind.
What drives our mind are the thoughts we believe. Each of us operates from a set of core beliefs which create a life theme that generates the feelings which our behavior follows.
Lynne’s work is devoted to helping people find and clear the painful beliefs and ideas that have caused them distress through a process of accessing the Observer Self.
Lynne’s Personal Transformation
Utilizing the process she shares with others, Lynne transformed her own health and consciousness.
“On Dec. 16, 2006, I woke up to the fact that I was truly sick with chronic liver disease … I was in constant physical distress — unable to digest food well and was so fatigued I could hardly get through my day.
That morning I got up to pray and meditate where I asked for insight and relief. I realized I’d been given the very resources I needed for healing and I made a commitment to devote myself to a daily practice of applying them. I started that morning.
Six months later, I’d dropped the 40+ extra pounds I’d been carrying for years (without dieting) and my health and consciousness had completely transformed! Today I am well, better than well, I thrive!”
Today, through one on one, groups and workshops of various kinds, Lynne facilitates individuals in their own personal growth process. Sharing with them the same tools and principles that brought her healing. Lynne encourages clients to explore their own basic belief blueprint and move towards ways of liberating themselves, mentally and physically, from the painful concepts that have held them prisoner.
Lynne and her husband Daniel operate Forest Haven a retreat setting for small groups and larger outdoor gatherings, out of their mountain home in Monteagle,Tennessee.
