About me

I am an experienced therapist specializing in the treatment of trauma and stress disorders with evidence based practices, including EMDR and Neurofeedback.

Personally:
My name is Lynae and my roots run deep in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. I care deeply for my community and love being able to do my part to help those with whom I share this beautiful place we call home. When I am not working, I am kept busy with four children, all teenagers and older, our four pets (we have two sassy Siamese cats and two small dogs). I enjoy spending time with my family, especially when we can do outdoor activities and travel together. My other hobbies include drawing, routine exercise, keeping my mind active with leaning, and my heart active with community service. I am currently in the process of achieving my Ph.D. in Psychology with a concentration in research and afterwards plan to become certified in scuba diving and plan to learn sign language. I engage in community service mostly with Pacific Northwest Adult and Teen Challenge and with other opportunities through my local church.

Professionally:
I believe that we all experience struggles in life and that these can contribute to stress, anxiety, depression, and trauma, and otherwise limit us. So often, these struggles can impact our relationships, career, and long-term well-being in ways that are sometimes difficult to manage. When this is our experience, I believe that it is beneficial to engage in therapy to work through the symptoms and impacts of trauma and stress and to heal from them. I take a positive approach to therapy and utilize proven strategies to help clients achieve their goals in a way and at a pace that works best for them. I commonly utilize EMDR, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy approaches, like exposure therapy in conjunction with traditional and systemic psychotherapies like Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy. If you are considering therapy for the first time or are wondering if is time to reengage in therapy, I would love the opportunity to connect with you see how I can support you in accomplishing your goals.

I am both therapist at and owner of Trauma Healing NW, LLC in beautiful Lake Oswego, OR. Navigating both roles, I do tend to have a wait list for new clients. However, all of our therapists are trained in EMDR and we share our overall specialty focus of trauma and stress related issues and concerns. If I am unavailable, I would highly recommend looking into one of our other fantastic therapists to see if you find another good fit and avoid a wait for services. You can read more about our providers on our website www.traumahealing-nw.com.

Area of Interest
I am drawn to working with those who work in helping or high stress/executive positions. Research demonstrates these roles have a high correlation with trauma and/or stress related disorders and often are the least likely to seek out therapeutic support. As a result, some of the highest levels of stress, depression, and untreated trauma are seen in those who are helpers and or leaders. I believe that in order to help and lead well, we must be well. Therefore, I focus my work to serve:

Veterans and active duty military

Psychologists, counselors, social workers, and other clinical professional helpers

Pastors, pastoral staff members, and other clergy

Medical providers including surgeons, doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals

First responders including police officers, fire fighters, EMT, and others

Professionals with other high stress positions such as professional athletes, small business owners, and executive team members
