Hello! I'm Lynn, and it's nice to meet you!
During a typical work-week, I enjoy my employed position supporting individuals with developmental disabilities as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, where I teach and implement applied behavior analysis.
In my private practice, Our Safe Harbor,
I provide holistic spiritual coaching and training.
I've created a four week program which consists of pattern recognition training, weekly custom mindfulness exercises, and, optionally, training in Self-Reiki* for deeper relaxation providing you with a life long tool for mind-body renewal.
Pattern Recognition Training: With my facilitation of the the ACT Matrix (ACT = Acceptance and Commitment Training*) you will be able to identify the Who and What is most important to you, (your life's purpose), the hooks or stuck loops that are barriers to your life's purpose, the relief moves you currently engage (and are they workable?) and behaviors you can initiate or increase to bring you closer to your goals. Then you'll start noticing which behaviors are workable and sustainable, and which behaviors won't deliver long term relief from stress, anxiety, fear, depression, etc..
I'll coach you to find replacement behaviors that are workable and meaningful, and make sense. If they're not DO-ABLE and ACHIEVABLE, they're not effective!
Custom Mindfulness Exercises: The four week program comes with three 15-minute private recorded guided meditations based on your needs and situation - that you can keep forever! Mindfulness is an evidence-based practice that will help you to surf the challenging moments in life when we are tempted to act outside of our best interests.
*Self-Reiki: I will teach you this relaxation tool that hospitals and treatment centers have found to be effective as a complimentary support for individuals in all forms of recovery from substance use disorders to cancer treatments**
Reiki Certification Courses:
Certification courses for all levels of reiki training begin Winter 2023.

** I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst, but not every part of my coaching program is behavior analytic in nature. Reiki is a spiritual (non-religious) energy healing practice.

Why "Our Safe Harbor?"
My aim is to create a collaborative, welcoming space where you will feel comfortable and supported. Harbors are places where boats (my very favorite thing!) can stop and rest gently, while being anchored loosely to a fixed spot. Translated to a coaching collaboration, Our Safe Harbor becomes a place of rest and renewal before you "relaunch" yourself on the next part of your journey. Welcome in, and enjoy the sunset.
